Alcove units

Alcove Units

We specialise in bespoke alcove units made on site to fit your room. Alcove units can be made in different styles for example, modern, contemporary, minimalist, Victorian, Edwardian, Regency or Georgian. They can be painted in any colour to fit your colour scheme.

The doors on modern and contemporary handmade alcove units often come with a shadow gap and flush doors with concealed hinges to make clean straight lines. Concealed hinges can be calibrated to perfectly align doors and make millimetre perfect gaps between doors. Often doors have a micro bevel around the edge.

Victorian and Georgian style alcove units have panelled doors, usually using a profile molding to match the existing molding of the room.

Alcove units normally consist of a set of cupboards at the base with shelving above. We can design and make any combination of cupboards and shelves to suit your own needs and provide your home with plenty of storage.

Contemporary shelves are usually bracketless floating shelves with clean lines. For a more traditional approach shelves can be made to sit directly on battens and the perimeter of the alcove made with a matching molding to the cupboard below. Sometimes the alcove unit is build inside a whole carcass which means battens are not needed. For adjustable shelving we can use book case strips.

Our alcove units are normally made with moisture resistant MDF, and then painted by us or the client, but we can use any timber material or wood, including soft or hard wood, veneered or stained MDF or veneered plywood.

Under-shelf, concealed and discreet lighting or power sockets can be incorporated if required.

We have many years of experience of building alcove units with exceptional style and quality in situ and transforming homes into organised, tidy and tranquil spaces. We can help with ideas and designs. Please email or call us to discuss your needs.
