What Makes The Burford Painted Wide Bookcase Great?

Had some difficulty with the first product I received. I thought I'd need a lengthy negotiation to resolve the issue, but the customer service was first class and they replaced the product almost immediately. Once I found the best size screwdriver, it was easy to assemble. It looks great and is very sturdy - holding all my children' many many books. The only design issue, that wasn't obvious from the photos on the website, is that the front side panels obscure the ends of the shelves from view. If you completely fill the shelf from end-to-end, the first and last few books aren't readily visible. Maybe better suited as a reception room piece displaying a mix of books and objects as shown in the images, rather than stuffed full of books - but I'm happy with it nonetheless.

Material: Painted

This product has a wooden base with a painted outer shell. Any marks that do occur should be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.

Collection: Burford Painted

This elegant shaker style collection is made to last. Lovingly constructed from solid pine and composite wood, utilising time-tested technics like tongue and groove for extra strength. Its beautiful soft ivory painted finish will add light to any room. Some pieces are also available with a choice of metal or painted handles making it even easier to mix with other ranges.

Lovely case with what seems good quality materials. The feel and look are great and my daughter loves the case. Much better than anything else i had seen as the there is a solid feel to this compared to many flatpack items. Looks great in her bedroom and is an ideal sizeThe instructions could do with being clearer. You need to be careful when assembling to make sure top and bottom are flat before screwing in as you cannot undo . Never understand why companies produce poor quality drawings and minimise words when producing these sorts of goods. Little expense would make enhance the experience.

The bookcase has exceeeded our expectations, so much so that we have ordered another one to compliment it. My only criticism (which applies to most furniture manufacturers) is that the enclosed instruction sheet could be clearer. Given that it has negligible cost, it would help if it included a picture of the assembled bookcase to supplement the schematic drawing, and also for the two packs of screws to be colour coded. The screws look very similar when one is assembling the pieces, and neither pack included the number of screws specified in the instruction sheet.

Very well made nice looking bookcase, perfect for our requirements, but as happens often these days...missing screws, and poor assembly instructions.My husband put it together thanks goodness despite these problems. Having paid for package removal I was very cross with the delivery guys who refused to unpack it on the grounds of damaging 'small parts inside`' which was rubbish as they were sealed in a box. I called customer service and the girl couldn't help me as she was a relief rep. or something, so very displeased with the delivery.

5

This bookcase is bigger than it looks and has ample space for all my books and bits and bobs. Ive bought a few other pieces in this range and just love it. This was the only piece that I bought that was flat-packed and, although the instructions for putting it together are limited and one of the diagrams is slightly misleading, it doesnt take a rocket scientist to put it together. The furniture is strong, great value for money and looks lovely in my newly decorated bedroom.

5

We were very pleased with the bookcase and it was easy to assemble. The only problem I have is the packaging that the pieces came in - there is a very large box and a lot of polystyrene and this was not made clear in the description. Our local Council recycling policy means that I have to take this to a Recycling point (its too big to fit in my car!) or pay the Council to come and collect it. Had I known the size of the packaging I would have purchased the packaging removal

Stunning bookcase that looks perfect. It is so beautiful that we have had to carefully 'style' the books and items on the shelves to do it justice, as opposed to just cramming all our books in! We had a little trouble with the back panel not fitting perfectly on and we had to slightly file down some of the wood base on the bottom at the back, but overall we are very happy with the end product.

5

We were delighted to receive our Burford bookcase. It.was speedily delivered and assembled without fuss. Our books were placed on the beautiful shelves and it must be classed as outstanding quality and great value for money. Our bookcase is admired by all our visitors as it is placed in the hallway. In fact I think I am going to secure it to the wall in case it disappears! Ok

4

Nice looking bookcase at a good price. There was a small split in the wood about 5 inches long on the front. Ironically right next the the quality control sticker. I guess the guy who checked it was having a bad day. Not worth sending back but if it was a more expensive piece it would have been more of a problem for me. Delivery guys were friendly and prompt.

3

The connection points for the back (dowel connections) were badly aligned so that when connecting the screws they were not central causing them to nearly break the area around them. Fortunately this is not seen from the front but could be a serious problem if the screws did break the side of the back section.

4

These are excellent shelves for the price and, as proof, this is the second set Ive bought. They look quite stylish, they are fairly sturdy for the price, and they fit a lot of books. The self-assembly is a bit of a drag, but they are inexpensive for what you get. Happy to recommend.

5

I'm a bit cautious about ordering online without being able to see how the object really looks but I'm absolutely delighted with this bookcase. It is sturdy, extremely well made and easy to put together - and looks exactly as pictured. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

5

Love my new bookcase. I received it very quickly, delivery man unpack and took the cardboard away. Look so smart! Can hold lots of book. Only downside is that the material can mark easily, so need to be careful with it. And also the step 3 instruction on the sheet is not correct.

5

On purchasing this along with a bed we paid 45 for installation thinking this covered the bed and this bookcase. It turns out this is not correct and the installation fee does not cover the bookcase !! This was not explained to us in the shop at the time we placed the order.

3

Of the pair of bookcases, one had a slightly bowed bottom shelf/base and top.The locator pegs in the bottom shelves/bases had to be removed because of the tight space between the sides.A lot of polystyrene and cardboard to dispose of.Otherwise, they look good and work well.

4

Didnt read the description properly as have stopped buying self-assembly as Im not a DIYer. The instructions werent very helpful and it wasnt clear which set of screws to use. Its a nice looking piece of furniture but I would have wanted it ready assembled for that price.

4

An excellent bookcase that is very good value for money. Solid, well made and very smart. There was one small mistake on the instructions and the back brace was tricky to locate (due to the dowels) but all in all I am very happy. Another good purchase from Cotswold Co.

3

Very nice bookcase and easy to build. Looks much more expensive than it actually is. Deliivery was punctual and we were kept well informed about delivery times. We have now ordered a TV stand and will be ordering more from your company in the future.

Solid definitely worth extra money. Replaced flat pack furniture. No comparison to me the quality is on par with oak furniture land. Thoroughly recommend, these will last forever. Plan on buying different range for my bedroom in near future.
