FITTED ALCOVE CABINETS
Chimney breast alcoves can be turned into beautifully fitted cupboards and bookcases which provide additional storage and real charm. Most UK houses of a certain age have alcoves in one form or another, and by installing built-in cupboards, the alcoves instantly look better. Better than the most expensive free-standing furniture.
We specialise in the design and installation of made-to-measure alcove cabinets and bookcase shelving. There are many style and budget options from shaker style with mouldings to more contemporary flush door styles. All options offer quality cabinet construction and close attention to detail.
Please browse our recent alcove cupboards and bookcase installations on this page and learn a bit about our process, the materials we use and how our fitted furniture is installed in your home.
Please get in touch to discuss your alcove project.

We had bespoke alcove cupboards made
around the chimney breast. They are stunning and look like they're an original feature. Very pleased!
Our fitted alcove cabinets are usually made with natural wood such as pine, oak and MDF then hand painted with quality paints. Alternatively modern laminated MFC and vinyl wraps can be used providing different finishes, textures and colours.
When we build alcove cabinets and bookcase furniture most of the work is carried out at our workshop - meaning less disruption at your home.
