Alcove Units: A Clever Storage Solution For Home Or Office

alcove unit with shelves

Ever wondered what to do with that empty recess in your room, office, or commercial space? That alcove, also known as a ‘nook’, is the perfect place to install a bespoke storage unit.

What is an alcove unit?

Alcove units can refer to shelving systems, cabinets, and wardrobes. Depending on the amount of space available, it could be a combination of all three, but the structure is designed to fit within the recess. An individually designed alcove unit is undoubtedly one of the best ways to maximise on your living or working space, offering additional storage space and an opportunity to transform the appearance of your room.

Where can I put an alcove unit?

A made-to-measure alcove unit can be installed in your bedroom, bathroom, living room, or office - wherever you have an empty recess! We can create a contemporary or classic design that complements your existing furniture and interior décor. Does your room have an awkwardly shaped recess that can’t accommodate standard furniture unless it is made-to-measure so it stands empty instead? We can design and install a custom-made alcove into any space no matter its layout. You can choose to have your alcove unit manufactured from a wide range of different materials, confident in the knowledge that we use only premium woods and the finest of finishes.

Are there any added features with an alcove unit?

We can install integrated lighting so you can shine a light on your favourite belongings or design the media unit around any audio-visual equipment you want to store, incorporating solutions to conceal cables and wiring. Push-open catches, soft-close hinges – the options are countless. Do you have valuable items you want to store safely and discreetly? Did you know, with a bespoke alcove unit we can include an integrated secret storage compartment so you can keep your treasured valuables stored away securely?
