Five Brilliant Built-Ins
It’s true that adding custom cabinetry and shelving to your home takes more of a commitment than a regular stop at The Container Store, but for organization that fits your lifestyle and makes the most of your space, it can be the best solution. If you’re considering built-in shelving, design with the help of an expert and gather as many ideas as you can because “custom” means that (almost) anything is possible.
For inspiration, here are five smart built-in spaces with tips you may not have considered:
1. Be Smart About Corners
In a kitchen by Kristina Crestin Design, there’s no wasted space and no risk of drawers colliding.
2. Add Interest to Cabinet Doors
This bedroom closet built-in by Theodore & Company has varied detailing for added interest.
3. Build in the Center of the Wall
By Kristen Rivoli Interior Design, this center-wall entertainment unit is painted to stand out.
4. Use the Entire Space
The space above the mantle can be under utilized, but in a living room by LeBlanc Designs hearthside shelving is connected over the fireplace.
5. Build to Blend
In a sophisticated space by Charles Spada, glass-front cabinets are painted a crisp white to match the walls and molding.
