How to create a bookcase unit


We don’t sell a bookcase unit as such, but we do provide many different open units that will allow you to showcase items. As well as books, you can store other items in the unit that you want to be visible and within easy reach.

Types of open units

We have over 70 different types of open units that could be used for a bookcase. These units can be positioned on a wall, under your worktop, on a worktop and at the end of a kitchen run. If you are considering creating an island then open units can be used to help store your books and create a bit of a feature at the same time.

You don’t always need to have a designated open unit to store books. If you have the know-how, you could even create something unique yourself or request a top box with no doors or drill holes. See the image below for some great examples.
