Made-to-measure libraries

With our dynamic online configurator, your made-to-measure library does not have to remain a dream. You can plan your library shelving to meet your individual needs and can be manufactured from high-quality solid wood, such as oak, beech or alder, as well as from durable MDF or multiplex. You determine the material, the dimensions and the layout of your new custom-made library.

Custom-made libraries: Order online with Pickawood UK today

Are you looking for a custom-made library? Convince yourself of the Pickawood UK quality with our combination of design and functionality and plan a custom-made library online for your living room, bedroom or office study today! Choose from a range of premium materials, including our solid wood types such as walnut, birch or oak. Your custom-made furniture piece will be extremely versatile and will look fantastic, wherever it is placed in your home. Our shelving offers you a wealth of compartment space in which to comfortably store your books, as well as photo albums or other items. If a classic library is too plain for you, you might like a tiered shelf? For even greater flexibility with the shelves, you have the option of adding a mounting strip of holes to rearrange shelving at a later date. And to ensure that your beautiful made-to-measure furniture piece can also stand directly against the wall, we are happy to make a cut-out for your skirting board on request. Our carpenters only use wood from sustainable forestry to produce your unique custom library. 

How deep should a library be?

A standard paperback book has a depth of 12 cm, a reference book is usually 17 cm deep and a DIN A4 book is 21 cm deep. At Pickawood UK, we recommend that you design your library an additional 2 cm deeper. If you want to design your library with doors or a back wall, we at Pickawood UK recommend that you configure your library 2 cm deeper in each case.

From which height and width does a library have to be divided?

A division of top and bottom panels as well as side panels takes place when the following dimensions are exceeded: multiplex: 245 cm, solid wood: 300 cm, MDF/span/real wood veneer: 272 cm. The division is made on the basis of the maximum board dimensions available in the trade. Please discuss with your specialist furniture consultant to determine where the division should be made. Otherwise, we will make a division that is advantageous for the design.

When does a made-to-measure library need to be fixed to the wall?

We advise you to always fix your library to the wall. We enclose the appropriate brackets with your order.

Which types of wood are particularly resilient?

Our solid wood types as well as our multiplex are particularly resilient materials and are therefore especially suitable materials for your custom-made library.

Can a library be fitted with glass doors?

Yes, glass doors can be made for libraries at Pickawood UK. This wish can be implemented in Step 7 of the configurator. If you need help with this, you are welcome to contact our interior design consultants.

Can a solid back panel be ordered for a custom-made library?

By default, you can select a 3 mm thick hardboard in Step 8 of our configurator. We can also produce a solid back panel for your furniture piece to match your solid wood library. For information on the costs, please contact our customer service.

Can library also be used as a room divider?

You can select the room divider option in the made-to-measure shelving configurator, then your library will be manufactured so that both sides are the same and can then be used as a room divider.
