Ask A Carpenter: Bespoke Bookcases

15th April 2019 by in category Bookcases tagged as , , , with 0 and 0

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a book-lover in possession of a good library must be in want of more shelf space. The same could be said of film buffs, or art enthusiasts, or anyone with a collection to display.

bespoke bookcases Bespoke bookcases offer several clear advantages over mass-produced products:

  • They can be custom-designed to make the best possible use of the space you have available;
  • You can choose a style that perfectly complements your décor, and turn a necessary storage solution into a striking feature of your room;
  • Buying from an experienced craftsman such as A D Woodcraft assures you of getting a high quality, long lasting piece of furniture.

When investing in bespoke bookcases, it’s important to find the right provider to be sure of getting exactly what you want. So here are the kinds of questions you should be asking.

May I see your portfolio?

This will give you an idea of the kind of designs this particular carpenter offers, and whether you like their style. It’s a good idea to ask them to come for a home visit – a good provider will offer this for free – to look at the space you’re asking them to work with, and bring their portfolio at the same time.

What exactly does this project entail?

When your carpenter has seen the space you have available, and you’ve discussed the kind of design you envisage, you need to ask them to explain exactly what work is required to complete the project. This should also include a discussion of the best materials for the job, both in terms of visual appearance and any design constraints.

What will the full cost be?

Following on from the previous question, your carpenter should give you a quote for the complete cost of your bespoke bookcases. Don’t be afraid to ask for a breakdown of the total – everything you’ve discussed should be included, ensuring that you’re not hit with any unexpected costs at the end of the project.
