Our bookcases are unique and our experienced carpenters only use high-quality woods sourced from sustainable forestry, including, alder, ash and oak. You can also benefit from our free, in-depth advice. If you are not sure which bookcase fits best in your living room, we will be happy to advise you in detail with our free one-to-one consultations.

Your custom-made furniture piece is very versatile and will look fantastic in the hallway as well as in the living room or study. Our shelving options offer you extensive compartment space in which to comfortably store your books as well as other items. If a classic bookcase is too plain for you, perhaps you would like a tiered shelf for your books? For more flexibility with the shelves, you have the option of adding a mounting hole strip to your bookcase. This way, you can be flexible with your shelving and adjust it at a later date. And so that your new beautiful piece of made-to-measure furniture can also stand directly against the wall, we will be happy to integrate a skirting board cut-out on request. Contact us today to discuss your plans and we will assist you in bringing your vision to life.

How deep should a bookcase 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. Here at Pickawood Europe, we recommend that you configure shelving for books an additional 2 cm deeper. If you want to configure your shelf with a back panel or doors, we recommend planning your shelving 2 cm deeper in each case.

When does a custom-made bookcase need to be fixed to the wall?

At Pickawood Europe, we recommend that you always fix your shelf to the wall. We enclose the appropriate bracket fixtures with your order.

Which types of wood are particularly resilient?

Our solid wood types as well as our plywood are particularly resilient materials and are therefore especially suitable for your custom-made bookcase. You can also improve the stability and load-bearing capacity of a bookcase by planning the columns or shelves to be as narrow as possible. This also applies to wine racks, where the individual compartments also have to bear a lot of weight.

Is it possible to use a mix of materials?

A combination of materials is possible with a few exceptions, so you do not have to decide on one material for your bookcase. You can plan structures and fronts in the configurator in different materials according to your tastes. A popular combination of materials is, for example, is an oak structure and varnished drawers.

From what height and width does a bookcase have to be divided?

Top and bottom panels as well as side-panels have to be divided when the following dimensions are exceeded: MDF/ chipboard/ real wood veneer: 272 cm, plywood: 245 cm, solid wood: 300 cm. The division is based on the maximum panel dimensions available in the trade. Please discuss with us where your division should be. Otherwise we will make a division that is advantageous for the construction.

How do I decorate a bookcase?

There are various ways of arranging your books on your shelf. For example, you can sort the books by colour, this is soothing to the eye. If you prefer to keep your arrangement simple, you can place the books on your shelf with their backs to the wall. You can also divide the layout and order by placing some books vertically and horizontally in your bookcase. In addition to books, decorative elements such as figurines, vases or small plants can also be placed on a shelf. Our colour choices allow your bookcase to match your room.

What are pre-configured products?

These are configurations of shelves, cupboards and sideboards that you can either add to your shopping basket as shown and specified on our website or can be utilised as inspiration when planning your furniture. You have the option of adapting the products to your wishes in our user-friendly online configurator. If you have any questions about our pre-configured products, our team of specialist furniture consultants will be happy to help.

How long does it take to assemble a large bookcase?

For a small bookcase, assembly will usually only take an hour. However, if you have chosen a large bookcase, the assembly can take several hours. If you need assistance with the assembly, our clearly diagramed assembly guides are provided with your order and are also available on our website here.

How narrow can I plan a bookcase?

The smallest width in our configurator is 30 cm. If you are planning a narrow but high shelf, we strongly recommend that you fix the shelf to the wall.

In which colours can I order a bookcase from Pickawood Europe?

The most frequently ordered colour for our bookcases is white. Therefore, we offer various white coatings and varnishes. However, you can of course choose from many other colours and solid wood types.

Can I mount a bookcase on the wall?

If you are planning a bookcase without a plinth, you can select the wall hanging option in the last step of our configurator. In this case, a wall bracket with a load-bearing capacity of 60 kg per panel will be embedded in each vertical panel. Please note the total load-bearing capacity and ensure that your shelf is fixed to a solid wall.
