Build a wall-to-wall gridGot a big blank wall somewhere in your home? You could fill it completely with bookshelves like they’ve done here. To maintain the bright, uncluttered feel of the room, the designers have used a neat grid layout and kept it all white to blend in with the walls.
Calculate dimensionsWhen you’re measuring up for your new piece of furniture, it’s important to be as accurate as possible. This is particularly important if it is fitting within a pre-defined space, such as an alcove. Of course, the joiner you hire will take their own accurate measurements, so you shouldn’t need to worry about this too much. However, it’s a good idea to measure at the pre-planning stage to make it easier to obtain estimates and work out your design. Don’t forget to take into account any inherent features in the room, such as sloping ceilings, dado rails, cornicing and skirting boards.
