On this page, we put together some of the best bespoke bookcases that we built in the past for our customers in London. I hope that gives you lots of great ideas to choose your perfect design. Custom fitted bookcases not only provide you with book storage it is also a good place to display picture frames of ones you love and store your favourite subjects such as birthday cards for example. Many people use their bookshelves to show their favourite books and trophies and once you have guests they can tell about you by simply looking at your favourite books on the shelves. Custom shelving can be crafted to fit any available space and they transform your living room to another level.
Bespoke bookshelves
This bookcase is about 2.3m across and 2.6m tall. I cost roughly £3,000+Vat
Our bookshelves units are very bespoke and can be modified to your taste. They can be made in a very traditional style by adding to your bookcase a lot of details such as beading, skirting board and coving. Optionally we can make them in a very contemporary way with minimum details and chunky floating shelves.

In most cases, our customers prefer to have bespoke bookshelves with lower cabinets with doors at the bottom and shelving space at the top and most of the cabinets are slightly deeper than the shelves and stick out a bit more. But we can design your bookcases to your custom needs and they can be made without doors and only shelves from top to bottom.

All of our bespoke bookcases are made from MDF and fitted with professional carpenters and hand painted on site by professional painters with any custom colour you like. Read more about How we work.
We also shared some pricing examples for your information below. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us.

Contemporary bespoke bookcases

custom bookcases with floating shelves london-2

Custom bookcase very interesting style with random chunky floating shelves and cabinets with plain doors. Very modern and minimalistic design for modern properties. This is the picture of our very first bookcase in this style we designed and built in London in 2011. This bookcase was designed by our customer and at that time I thought it a very crazy idea to do random-sized shelves. If I'm being honest, I thought it was going to look awful. But once we built it actually appeared to look very good and it became a very popular style, and I placed it at the front page of our website and since then we have built over 50 custom bookcases of similar styles. Some of them you can find below. The rough price for this bookcase is around £4,000+VAT
