Must I have built in units in my chimney alcoves???

8 years ago
I am a bit reluctant to spend thousands on built in alcove units for my living room unless it is really necessary or will make a huge difference.. I have Ikea shelves in my bedroom alcoves and although they don't fit perfectly i.e there are gaps between the shelf and the wall I don't think they look bad at all.... Would it be a faux pas if I didn't he same for my living room? Then I could get some free standing units for the bottom of the shelves? Many thanks for your time.
By the way my living room is in F&b Joas White, and ceiling Wimborne white.. Any ideas for colours for shelving units for the alcoves? I am leaning towards Wimborne white.
