Using DecBOOKS in your project

To simplify specifying DecBOOKS in your project, we have compiled a simple 4-step process. As ever, we are on hand to answer any questions you may have.


Our DecBOOKS Style Guide shows sixteen distinct and inspiring styles. From the traditional library look, through to the refined vellum finishes or the ultra-minimalist; choose the most desirable style for your project.


All we need are the width and height of the area you need to fill. If it’s a blank canvas, you don’t even need to worry about shelf heights yet – we’ll plan all of this for you. Why not send over a quick sketch, it’s always useful.


We will plan out your complete project, setting shelf heights and filling them with books to match your chosen style. With everything manufactured by hand in Gloucester, you can be sure this part will be done to perfection!


DecBOOKS are supplied in panels and packed by shelf. Each project is supplied with drawings and simple fitting instructions.
