Welcome to alcove bookcases, I have a supply and both a manufacture and fitting service available. Alcove bookcases can be both painted or stained, so feel free to inquire for your particular alcove bookcases.

Why not consider turning your ideas for alcove bookcases into reallity using information collected here? Most people when thinking of making alcove bookcases are torn between using solid wood and the ultra thin, usually high gloss, or pretend wood bought at some high street stores. Well there is an alternative.
There are various stages that have to be followed.
Stage 1:
find the measurements of the shelves you require including the length width height and quantity.
Stage 2:
Here you'll need to decide on the materials, this can simply be a question of money or finish. I'll explain: Solid walnut/oak is expensive and requires lots of hard work to make it the right size and therefore fit but the finish will always be great regardless of it being painted or varnished etc. Or you could chose MDF which is much cheaper and also takes less work to make it fit and it's just as easy to paint and stain as walnut/oak. But ofcourse with MDF you run the risk that your shelf fail, due to excess loads. So walnut/oak is a cost=lose quality=win strength=win and MDF is a cost=win quality=win strength=lose. It would have to be excess loads that made a MDF shelf fail. So perhaps the middle ground is MDF with a strengthened core?
Stage 3:
The fitting or putting together of your project is next. This happens with either fixings are bought somewhere or by using fixings you've made. I'd recommend using iron rods when it comes to floating shelves and good glue and screws when it comes to hardwood bookcases.

Stage 4:
The fitting process is about preparation. First mark the position of the walnut shelf/bookcase.
Next level a line along the wall where the shelf/bookcase will be touching the wall.
Next drill holes where either the screws for the walnut bookcase is going or where the rods are going for the walnut floating shelf.
Next bang in your rods or wall raw plugs.
Next place the shelf/bookcase into position and with the walnut bookcase put the screws through the back of the bookcase into your prepared holes.
Next it is just a question of caulking or finishing of the seen edges that need a little filling to make everything look perfect.

The difference between made to measure joinery, fitting some joinery into position that has been made to fit as best as possible, but is free standing vs the made to measure joinery that has the fitted look. Joinery that has been made to meaure and as a finishing touch looks fitted also and has no gaps, and is not free standing, it may also fit floor to ceiling and it looks great!
