Finding a bespoke bookcase to meet your requirements can be a time consuming and frustrating affair! Getting the bookcase of your dreams revolves around size, colour, style and functionality.

Firstly, does it come in the size you want? Is it a wide bookcase to stack the reference guides – or a narrow bookcase to squeeze into the corner of the living area to stack away the kids books and glossy magazines? Do you need to maximise your storage with a high bookcase or is a low bookcase enough to give extra storage, yet not impose on the style of the room too much?

Next: finishes – it’s not unusual to find mixture of oak, walnut, cherry, mahogany, beech and pine finishes all in a row of houses, anywhere in Ireland! And matching a colour with product already in a room is even more difficult, unless of course, you buy a bookcase from the same collection as other pieces in the room.

And as if colour and size aren’t challenging enough, there is also the additional complication of getting a style that fits your needs! Do you want traditional bookcases, modern bookcases, contemporary bookcases or perhaps rustic bookcases. Simple, straight edged styles seem to be most widely available but many of them lack a real finesse and come across as “boxy”!
