I'm trying to create shelves recessed into a wall, but up off the floor. The only builtin shelf help I can find online consist of a floor to ceiling option, which I don't want. I want the shelving in the wall, up off the floor, under a TV. I've attached a picture similar to what I want. How do I do this? Niches don't allow me to make them deep enough or add shelves, and I can't figure out how to surround a wall cabinet with interior walls. Thanks!

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

Think about the tools you have to make this happen.


Hole in the wall with trim? -- Pass Through


Shelves? -- Upper cabinet without doors

Thanks for the help. I didn't know pass through was option. I wouldn't have pegged it as a window option either. Maybe adding it to the wall tool palette would be helpful as well. Adding the cabinets was tricky though. The walls didn't seem to want to recognize the cabinets when I resized around them. Visually what I have will work. Thanks again.
