Case study: Bespoke bookcases in Fontwell near Arundel


Bespoke carpentry by Daniel Fyfe

Our client is based in Fontwell in West Sussex which is well known for the Fontwell Park Racecourse and close to Arundel with its beautiful castle and cathedral, Swanbourne Lake and Arundel Wetland Centre. To the west is the cathedral city of Chichester.


Our client wanted a bespoke bookcase that would be both functional and also fit aesthetically into their home and furnishings.


After looking through different designs and styles they decided on a contemporary design with flat panel doors for storage.


"I would highly recommend Daniel for the quality of his work, professional manner - always on time, polite, neat and tidies as he goes along…very responsive & reliable. We are delighted with the bookshelves he has installed for us!"

What the client chose


They chose to go for a paint finish with 30mm shelving.

The cupboards were fitted with painted flat panel doors made from 22mm moisture resistant Medite premier board. Push latches were used instead of handles for a flush, sleek finish.

Quality hinges were fitted to the cabinet doors with a soft-closing mechanism to avoid any noisy door slamming.
