Is your home feeling cluttered? Do you spend hours looking for something you “stored” away in the attic many years ago?

What makes custom made bookcases great?

  • The bookcases are built specifically for you, and installed to fit perfectly in the available space.
  • The shelving goes with the design of your room, adding a touch of style and practicality.
  • You get flexibility and attention to detail that you can’t find in off-the-shelf furniture.
  • Working with an Interior Designer opens up new options to creating something that's right for your home.

The biggest reason to opt for custom made bookshelves is because rooms come in varying sizes. This means that mass produced furniture will rarely fit the available space very well.

There's always a choice when it comes to alcove units. With an array of different styles, our workshop team can create something truly unique for you. Our goal is to make them stylish, practical and timeless so that you won’t have to think about changing anything for years to come.

We make our clients happy!

We are extremely happy with the service provided from start to finish. Derek, Alan, Vanessa and Declan were very thorough and accomodating with all our requirements and provided an extremely professional service. It was a delight to work with Vanessa. She is an extremely good designed and very accomodating. We have plans to get a few more things done and I will definitely be going back to Custom Made in the near future.


I am delighted with the service received from Custom Made! They designed and built an alcove unit and two built-in wardrobes for me, and in each case I was delighted with the difference they made to the rooms: they feel brighter and more spacious now. The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.


Custom made previously provided stunning alcove cabinets for our new home. This year we gave them the difficult job of exactly replicating those units after we had extensive flood damage to our home. Vanessa and the team did an amazing job and now our sitting room feels just like home again. It was a pleasure to deal with custom made throughout the whole process from design to installation. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautifully finished custom carpentry.


We cannot recommend Custom Made enough! From the moment I first spoke with Vanessa their attention to detail was incredible. Derek dropped in to discuss our requirements and measured up, then we received emailed drawings of our units for our approval. Eoin, their cabinet installer, was an absolute gentleman, very polite and professional. We are delighted with our finished cabinets!

Thomas & Martina

We are thrilled with the quality of work and customer service we received from Custom Made. They designed and built a big kitchen unit and a desk that fit our needs perfectly. We asked for the unit to match the colour and design of our kitchen and they did it to perfection. The installation team were neat and efficient, and were happy to make any changes we requested. We cannot recommend Custom Made highly enough.


I found the team very professional and helpful throughout. In particular, Vanessa was fantastic to deal with — and the main reason we went with Custom Made in the first place. The end product (built in shelving units and floating shelves) was spot on. Couldn't be happier and would highly recommend.


We couldn’t recommend Custom Made highly enough. They were very professional and reasonably priced. We are delighted with our built in wardrobes, alcove units, floating shelves and kitchen. Vanessa worked with us at every stage from initial call-out to installation to make sure we were happy with everything and any late changes were very kindly accommodated. We will definitely use Custom Made again and recommend them to friends and family!

The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.


We recently engaged Custom Made to design and install fitted wardrobes, hallway storage, alcove storage and a TV unit in our home. From the initial emails to meeting the designers and fitters, we were very happy with the service. We felt our ideas and requests were really taken on board during the design stage; no question or request was too trivial for Vanessa. The team who worked in our home, from the fitters, apprentices and delivery men were incredibly helpful, professional and hard-working.


Delighted that we selected Custom Made to work on our new furniture. Thanks to their invaluable help at the design stage (thank you so much Vanessa!) we can enjoy our bespoke furniture which we absolutely love. It has been a great experience from the design stage to installation; they are very professional, the quality of work is second to none and they are such a pleasure to deal with. We have a few more rooms to fill and will definitely use Custom Made's services again.


Custom Made are a very professional outfit! They made and installed a walk in wardrobe with revolving floor to ceiling shoe racks for us as per our design and we absolutely LOVE IT. Many many thanks to Vanessa (best of luck in your new home!), she was extremely helpful and patient, always in good humour while dealing with us, such a lovely person to deal with. Thank you!


Simply brilliant to work with. We went with Custom Made because of their strong reviews — So glad we did! Vanessa designed the pieces and worked with me to adjust the designs until they were perfect, being super-responsive and patient all the way through. She kept us up to date about installation dates, and the team arrived on the date promised. The result is delightful - we're so happy with the two units! Highly recommend them!


We installed alcove units with floating shelves in our living room and were delighted with the finished product. Our house is old so it wasn't a straight forward job but the team did an outstanding job fitting the units to such a high standard on the day. Vanessa is fantastic to work with. She was prompt with answers to any questions we had and was happy to help with every step of the process. I would happily use Custom Made again for work in our house.


We had wardrobes built by Custom Made recently and couldn't be happier with them. We had some ideas but Vanessa's suggestions were invaluable, they were also flexible about what we wanted to do unlike some other companies we had approached. The team were great and we are delighted with the finished product. Highly recommend!


Bookcases Ireland

If you are a budding chef, our bookcases can be a great way to store your various cookbooks. We recommend a bookcase which incorporates drawers underneath- great if your existing fitted kitchen is short on space. If you are thinking of revamping this much-loved room in your home, we also design and manufacture a range of kitchen doors.

Our made to measure bookcases are produced from start to finish in our Dublin-based workshop to your exact dimensions and design specifications. Each of the projects we undertake is unique based on our client’s needs, however we have suggested some ideas later in the article which can offer inspiration.

Bespoke Bookshelves

In many homes there is a room or space which is used as a home office or study. These spaces whether large or small run smoothly when organisation is at the heart of them. Ordering a bespoke bookcase which incorporates a desk is a great way to utilise the space in your home and create the ideal home office.

As our furniture is all made-to-measure, we can create a bookcase which fits perfectly into your home office design. If you have a larger room, consider a wall to wall bookcase with an attached partners desk.

This can accommodate couples who both need a space to work or serve as a study space for children to complete their homework. For those with a smaller room, corner bookcase units with an attached desk is a great way to maximise the space in your home.

If this is included in another room such as the kitchen, the bookcase can be finished in colour which compliments the current design.

Traditional & Modern Designs

In living rooms, a well-designed bespoke bookcase is both a stylish and practical feature. In recent years, wall mounting TVs has become a popular alternative to traditional media units. However, with this modern design trend there can sometimes be a lack of storage space.

Opting for a bookcase design which surrounds the TV and includes storage cupboards and drawers offers a fashionable storage solution as well to display books and family photos.

As experienced furniture makers the possibilities of our bespoke designs are endless. We can combine our shelving units with our solid surfaces to make a unique bookcase which really stands out.

Custom Made Bookcases

If like us, you are a book lover you may often dream of owning a home library; somewhere you can get comfortable and lose yourself in a book. Filling a room wall to wall with shelves is a great way to make this dream a reality.

Whatever the size available in your home, we can make this dream a reality. In fact, we have experience helping our customers to furnish libraries by providing alcove units Ireland as well as larger libraries with wall to ceiling bookcases.

When thinking of designing a home library it is important to think about lighting within the room.

It is extremely important to think about lighting and how much time you will spend in your home. If you are really wanting to create a relaxing environment opt for a comfy traditional wingback chair in the corner of the room with a statement lamp. With this chair we would also recommend a footstool and rugs to make the room feel warm and inviting.

If you are parents, you are sure to be keen about instilling a love of reading in your children- creating a book-nook which is their own is a great way to do this. As mentioned previously we have a wealth of experience creating custom-made furniture to fit our clients needs and love being creative with our solutions.

If you are short on space, check out our under stairs storage which could be a great space to create a home library your kids will love!
