A bespoke built-in bookcase for your book collection.

Spraying your furniture gives you the best possible finish. We can spray paint your furniture with any of the above paints, or alternatively in an extra hard lacquer to provide a lifetime of use in any range or sheen levels, from eggshell to gloss and is available in any colour.

Finishing is carried out in our workshop prior to each piece been fitted to your home, meaning your furniture will be ready sooner with less disruption.

Quality Finishing of your Furniture

Every piece of fitted furniture that we create for your home is made with the best quality material and professionally finished and installed.

Creating the perfect finish for your furniture is perhaps the most important factor bringing to life your design, as this is what makes the furniture look great, therefore we offer a range of finishes from hand painted with paint from various suppliers for example, Dulux, Farrow & ball, or Little Greene,

What you should look for is a reputable company with good reviews that will make the furniture and complete most of the finishing off site in their workshop where the quality can be controlled and is not dependent on having to finish, pack away and tidy up before time to go home.

By selecting Built in Solutions to fit your alcoves, you will benefit from the following

  • Pre-finished in our workshop before hand
  • Usually only One day required for fitting
  • Professional Accredited by The Furniture Ombudsman
  • Quality Handmade furniture you will be very happy with
  • Dealing with a friendly local company

Houses shift and move a little over time, so generally speaking, the older your home the more likely the walls will be uneven. So in terms of measuring of your bookcases, the width of the wall will be different all around, the same applies for taking measurements at floor level and ceiling level, meaning that you will have to select a company with skilled craftsmen to take account of all this to trim all the panels to fit perfectly.

There are so many on the job carpenters and companies with a wide variation in the quality they provide, typically most 'companies' are on the ‘job carpenters’ that will typically spend the best part of a week to start making your alcove units by cutting up all the material, probably in your beautiful garden, followed by allot of drilling and screwing to assemble the pieces and then sanding, usually in the room the fitted units are to be fitted. After this the bookcases will require painting, which will require 2 coats of primer, and then two coats of paint, oh and not to forget to mention, sanding down between each coat (more rubbing down and sanding of edges if MDF is used) so a good finish can be achieved, allot of disturbance. So probably a good week in total !
