Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful shelving We have bought 4 of these shelf units, different sizes to fit awkward spaces. Very easy to assemble, and when in position and full of books, they look really nice. Very pleased with them. 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal Narrow Bookcase for a Busy Room Very pleased with this product. Well-designed; easy to assemble (although the instructions left a bit to the imagination) and good finish 25 March 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not bad for the Money but instructions complicated I was quite please with the bookcase - it is reasonable quality for the money. The only issue on style is that the plastic plugs that cover the fittings on the underside of the top of the unit do look very cheap and could be improved. I'm tempted to leave the metal fixings showing. The instructions were all graphic, and were a bit of a challenge for someone not very used to self assembly. However, got there in the end and it looks fine. 18 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased I bought two of these to flank the media unit. Very pleased with them - they are sturdy, attractive, and straightforward to assemble. The shelving is very flexible. My only hesitation is that plastic blanking plugs that cover the screw panels. Surely it would be possible to make them in a colour that blended in a little better! 25 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well-finished I'm impressed by these narrow shelves, delivered by helpful delivery people who placed them where I'd asked. The shelves have a nice rounded edge to them, and fit masses of books. One note: these shelves are very tall, and the flat-pack boxes they're delivered in cannot be stored upright, so you will need a long hallway to store them horiziontally. 18 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall a quality unit but spoiled by by design flaw The unit is spoiled by the top; when it is assembled the metal fixings are covered by plastic blanking circular covers. These are very noticeable and give it the look of budget flat pack furniture. It is not possible to reverse the top as holes are drilled to attach the plinth. If the holes for the plinth were drilled on the other side the metal fixings would be hidden by the height of the unit. 13 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and easy to assemble Or should I say relatively easy, because self-assembly instructions are often ambiguous and there always comes a point where two or three sections that have been made ready need to be fitted together at the same time. Delivered on time and finished product looks good. 06 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by exactly what I was looking for Two teenage grandsons put them together very easily 29 April 2014
