Shelving units are among the most important features of a room. Whether in the private home or in offices, law firms and practices, these practical multi-talents are absolutely indispensable, because they fulfil several functions at once. On the one hand, they naturally offer plenty of space for decorative objects, books, files, etc., on the other hand, they can also be used very well as room dividers. For example, when two children share a room or when a visual separation of living and sleeping area or living and working area is required. At Pickawood, you can get shelving units for every need and every requirement. They not only offer you maximum functionality, but are also characterised by first-class carpentry work. They also look great, because we believe that a shelving unit should also be an attractive eye-catcher. And best of all: we can make your individual shelving unit entirely according to your personal wishes! Do you have sloping ceilings, would you like a "corner solution" or a shelving unit with a special compartment division? No problem, we can turn your ideas into reality!

Books are the gateway to the world, they impart knowledge, bring us closer to foreign cultures, captivate and amuse us with their stories and are at the same time probably the best way to completely switch off and relax. Good for those who own so many books that they need a bookcase! If the pile on your bedside table is already reaching dizzying heights or you want your own library at home, our custom-made bookshelves are just the thing. You determine the dimensions, the appearance and the division of the compartments, we take care of the implementation. Whether it's a narrow but room-high solution for a small room or spacious shelving systems for the passionate book collector, we fulfil all wishes reliably, individually and in excellent quality. The same applies, of course, to special types of shelving. In the living room or in smaller offices, for example, a stair shelving unit looks very good. It doesn't look so bulky and still offers enough space to store all the things you always want to have in view. By the way: stepped shelves fill the space under a staircase or sloping roof perfectly and you don't waste a single centimetre of space! Here, too, you can of course determine the height, the arrangement of the individual columns and the material yourself. From the robust multiplex or MDF version to almost indestructible and very noble shelving units made of solid wood, everything is possible at Pickawood. Speaking of solid wood: beech is particularly popular in this context, because the type of wood is extremely versatile and can be customised to suit any interior design style. However, you can also opt for oak or pine, for example: There are no limits to your design freedom with Pickawood!
This also means that you can equip your new shelving unit with drawers and doors if you wish. It doesn't matter whether only individual compartments are to be given a closed look or the entire shelving unit. You can also choose the handles yourself using our online configurator. We have many attractive variants ready for you, from classic and timeless to modern and super elegant. In addition, a shelving unit can also be designed completely or partially as a display cabinet. This is particularly useful if you want to store valuable objects, such as collectibles, protected from dust and moisture but still clearly visible.
By the way: a shelving unit does not necessarily have to be placed on the floor. Of course, you can also choose hanging shelves from us. Hanging shelves are always the ideal choice if a room is already heavily cluttered with various pieces of furniture and you want to make use of the remaining wall space. In addition, a custom-made hanging shelf is also very suitable in the study or office: for example, above the desk. It also looks very good in the living and dining room if you place it above a low chest of drawers or a sideboard.
Many customers also opt for a wall unit in the form of a shelf. This solution looks very spacious, airy and modern. A separate cut-out for your flat-screen TV is of course also possible. The complete ensemble then appears "as if from a single mould" and radiates calm and harmony. The individual shelves also offer optimal storage options for your DVD collection, games console, magazines and the like, so that the room always looks tidy and orderly.
