Order your custom library online

Are you looking for a custom-made library? Convince yourself of the combination of design and functionality and design a great custom-made library online for your living room, for example, from our solid wood types such as walnut, birch or oak at the online joiner Pickawood. Your custom-made piece of furniture is very versatile, so it looks fantastic in the hallway as well as in the living room or the teenager's room. The shelf offers you all the compartments in which you can 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? If you have sloping ceilings in your apartment/house, you can make wonderful and stylish use of them with our custom-made sloping roof shelves. For more flexibility with the shelves, you have the option of adding rows of holes to your library. And to ensure that your new beautiful piece of made-to-measure furniture 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 make your piece of furniture. 

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, 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 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 our furnishing consultant:inside 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. This wish can be implemented in the configurator in step 7. 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 3mm thick hardboard in the 8th step of our configurator. We can also produce a solid back panel for your piece of furniture to match your solid wood library. For information on the costs, please contact our customer advisory service.

What does the assembly cost?
The price depends on the complexity and size of your piece of furniture. This service can be selected directly in the shopping basket and the cost of assembly is displayed in the shopping basket so that you have transparent cost control. Our assembly service can also be booked at a later date, please contact our furnishing advice service.

Can a library also be placed under a sloping roof?
At Pickawood, you can also plan customised sloping roof shelving or simply configure your library as a tiered shelf.

Can a library shelf 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 made the same from both sides so that it can be used as a room divider shelf without any problems.
