A few weeks ago my new Tylko bespoke shelves arrived – somewhere for storage as well as a place to show all my favourite accessories. Here’s what I thought of my experience with Tylko.
What I love about Tylko shelving is that it is completely bespoke, and I don’t just mean the height and width of the whole module – but you can also customize the height of each individual shelf, for example I knew that I needed some shelves tall enough to hold large coffee table books and another exceptionally large section to fit a tall desk lamp. You can use their clever app to visualise what your new shelves will look like, so you can easily check that they will suit your space before ordering them.
I wanted to make the most of this space, I didn’t have a lot of width to play with to fit the shelving in next to the sofa but I thought if I got the shelves to fit almost to the ceiling then I could get a lot more on them and make best use of the space. Once ordered, the shelves took about 4 weeks to arrive. I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived at how simple it was to put together (warning – they do come flatpack so there is a bit of work involved) – but theres no screws involved, they connect together using a clever snap mechanism which is much less fiddley. You assemble the shelves facing down on the floor in front of where it is going to live and then once the whole thing is connected you carefully tip it up (assembly is much easier with at least 2 people). You can also secure the shelving to your wall should you wish to, which we did since there is a lot of weight on the shelves now and it’s better to be safe than sorry.
You can see what this corner of the living room looked like beforehand further down, it was very dull and boring but the white shelving has really brightened it up and added an entirely different dimension to this corner. I went for white as I know that my living room is the darkest room in the house so it needed to be at bright as possible, but Tylko is also available in black and grey too depending on what kind of look you’re going for.
I’m so so pleased with the Tylko shelves, they feel so unique since I was able to design the layout of the shelves and they are beautiful to look at, the plywood gives them such a minimalistic, Scandinavian feel – right up my street.
