Easy to put up, well made and brilliant range of widths (14cm fits a paperback without taking too much room)

We've used Shelfstore several times because it's so good and the service is reliable. Easy, step-by-step design and ordering process to get exactly what you want. Delivery on a day to suit. Easy assembly, with good instructions. Would definitely recommend. More...

I was very pleased with the service from Shelf store. The shelving arrived on time, well packed and the wood is of good quality and makes for both an attractive and practical feature. In particular, I would commend the website which makes it easy to plan the shelving and is backed up with helpful videos and FAQs. More...

Fantastic service from this company. Goods arrived with superb packing and protection. We didn’t order sufficient shelves and were able to easily order an extra one. The shelves are solid and well finished and look great in the bedroom alcove we wanted them for. More...

Excellent product & service. All the components are very well made, from high quality, strong, well-finished materials, the shelving units are incredibly easy and quick to assemble, and the website is extremely well thought-out and put together, so ordering is very simple and straightforward. They provide lots of how-to videos on the website and answers to every possible question! Very good value, and arrived within a couple of days of ordering too! Would definitely recommend these shelving units to anyone looking for a bespoke or modular shelving system. More...

The shelfstore website makes it very easy to plan and to price your storage units. These are equally easy to assemble and reconfigure with no tools needed for assembly, and the quality of timber and fittings is excellent. Solid wood - no veneers. First class service, too. More...

I'm very pleased with the two sets of shelves. Arrived exactly on the day I specified, early on so I had lots of time to get them up and in position. Very easy to assemble. One set was quite large and had to be fitted into an awkward space behind roof joists, and it certainly would have been quicker to have had a helper when manoeuvring them into position but I managed to get it done okay. Look good, and are now full of books which has made a big difference in the rest of the house! Would buy again. More...

Shelves have been sent quickly and simple to put together. The different sizes provide real flexibility and make it easy to design shelves to fit requirements.
Only slight negative is that as the shelves are wood there may be some minor 'digs' in them from carriage/handling. However these are not noticeable once the shelves are in place.

Great modular shelving system I was able to design myself to fit a corner alcove. Quick delivery (next day), well packaged (so no damage in transit) and was easy to assemble. Really pleased with the whole process and final result! More...

I was very impressed with the quality it was better than expected. All packages arrived next day as scheduled.

Their planning tool is really easy to use and it was a piece of cake to assemble, 3 bays 21 shelves in half an hour. Would recommend.

A little background first. I'm your average DIY'er, confident in what I do - who has been promising himself a large shelving/bookcase unit for years.
I'll start the process at planning, which I thought could have been made better. The wizard relies on building units 'vertically', I wanted to go 'horizontally' - to make cupboards under shelves. This was a large unit near to 3.5 metres in length, 2 metres tall.
Delivery and packaging:- This was superb 10/10. The packaging ensured that everything arrived in pristine condition. There were 15 packages.
Assembly:- This again relies on vertical assembly, and then turning each unit to a wall. In my instance this was very difficult, limited space and the need for each unit to be fully secured to the wall made this very awkward. This gets a 6/10.
The finished job:- Very clever machining has produced a very neat unit, however - the wood used is a very soft, open grain, pine. I suspect that some of the shelves were machined in the green and have shrunk since, leaving large gaps around the shelves. I've had to fill some of the more visible gaps, and I've also given the whole unit an extra tough varnish. So an 8/10 here.
Would I recommend this company, yes I would, with caveats. I'd even like to buy some more units myself as finances allow.

System flexibility is excellent and as furniture it enhances the room. We are pleased with our purchase.

Would recommend. Would send a picture but our books and papers are too untidy! More...

Product is excellent; the design s/w works well and the cost seems reasonable. Delivery was swift and good with a driver who'd bought shelfstore for himself having seen how good it was! I built a five-bay bookcase and another single-bay and was just in awe of the quality and the thought that has gone into the design. More...

An outstanding product. Looks great, and it fits perfectly; each part of the process has been thought through with care. For once the assembly instructions are clear and easy to follow. The packing on delivery is also superb. 100% satisfied. More...

Thanks again

Great selection of shelf sizes and depths to fit any wall space. Delivered in perfect condition, very securely packaged. Easy and quick to assemble. Lovely finish to the wood. Would buy from again. More...

Great system, with the layout designed on the Shelfstore 3D software, which also then lists the parts required. Delivery was on a specified date and assembly was simple. The Shelfstore system then allows adjustment of shelf spacing to be changed at any time to allow suit changing requirements. Very impressed, More...

Fabulous! Lovely good quality furniture, easy to assemble, reasonable price, very speedy delivery with a one hour slot so you don't have to wait around all day. And the best customer service I've ever had, by far. Highly recommended! I actually wanted something not quite to specifications so ordered accordingly and the rep phoned me up to make sure that I had everything I needed, then offered an extra baton to strengthen the desk free of charge. Fabulous. More...

Exactly what I was looking for, very flexible with so many size options. Ordered one to see the quality and very pleased. Next day delivery is a bonus. I'll certainly be ordering more very soon. More...

Many thanks for everything. The order arrived the following day, all items were correctly supplied. As previously, I erected it in minutes, and it all looks great. It is sturdy, flexible and nicely finished, many thanks for a first class product. Ideal for books - no sagging or bending. More...

We’re really pleased with our shelving system from Shelfstore. They’re beautiful made, look great, and are clearly of a different class and quality to the perfectly acceptable mass-market shelving that we’ve used before. Shelfstore are lovely people to deal with, too. More...

Great service. Well made and easy to put together. Takes one hell of a weight of books, even on the wide shelves. Will last me out and can be handed on. They are that good. Pricey but very good value and they look good also. Myself and my family have bought four lots of shelving and desk space from the company. More...

I have been using Shelfstore shelving products for longer than I care to mention. This is a measure of not only the quality, flexibility and consistency of the system, but also the ease of construction and its sheer usefulness!

As an avid collector of books, LPs, CDs and DVDs - not to mention cassettes, videos and reel-to-reel tapes, the system answers my every requirement. It’s scope is almost unlimited and I cannot think of any shelving situation which it could not cope with in a straightforward and elegant way.

After all these years, since I first purchased a few simple shelves from the Finchley Road shop, the shelving has stood the test of time - the only change is that it has mellowed in colour to a lovely golden brown.

Absolutely brilliant!

I have built 3 separate installations using this product; a wardrobe in a bedroom alcove, a complete office shelving and desk system and a bookcase/wine rack.

The quality is excellent, the assembly instructional videos are very easy to follow and, above all, the customer service from Tony and his colleagues is superb. Unreservedly recommended.

Firstly, this is a most adaptable system. Secondly, I have been using the system professionally for many years  heavy books  and not a suggestion of bowing to the shelves. Thirdly, it is simplicity itself to construct. And finally  these are the most helpful contact staff you could possibly wish for. More...
