But you are still considering where all of your favorite books should be placed? As we are the best in finding solutions in non-standard refurbishments, we propose practical and at the same time stylish alcove for your books’ collection.
For all those who loves minimalist style Mogio presents alcove project realised for one of our Client. In order to create the traditional and timeless design of the alcove, the bookcases installed by our team were placed on both sides of a fireplace – two of them on the left side of the fireplace and one on the right. We used MDF system for shelving, which according to Customer’s wish was painted in white colours.
However, to keep the alcove in retro style a hardwood for the shelving, either teak or oak could be successfully used. Top of each alcove has architrave with two spot of lights mounted inside – just to make your books paying notice on them. We refused from skirting board running around the bottom of alcoves. Instead of them we placed mosaic on the floor around the fireplace. The whole of the amazing alcove™s look is stressed by three large spots of light coming out from suspended ceiling.
