A common misconception among homeowners is that you can either have luxury aesthetics in your home or feature bulky, eye-sores to increase storage. But what if you can indulge in both? A freestanding shelf unit is something that can move around, but clutters the room for example. To enhance the beauty of the architecture and increase storage, opt for built-ins that are permanent fixtures that blend with overall look. These built-ins are made to complement your home’s architecture and increase your property value, much like a beautifully tailored gown that flatters your figure. Other options that can increase storage possibilities can include inside a bench, around the fireplace, in a kitchen island, under the staircase, or a hallway.
Custom Cabinets, Built Ins & Woodcrafts
Future Vision Remodeling would like to share some examples of how you can further your storage space and still have a tasteful appearance.
Custom Kitchen Cabinets & Islands: There is so much that belongs in the kitchen; cookbooks, utensils to fresh food, pots, pans, canned goods, and so much for. To maximize the space, planning plays an essential role. A built-in bench seating or a bar style counter maximize the space for the family as well as an otherwise empty wall be turned into an ideal place for storing cookbooks and displaying a precious collection of glass art. Additionally, a TV can be tucked away in its own little nook or the next to your stove can become a handy built-in spice rack. With custom kitchen islands the storage possibilities are endless; a built-in storage space for amenities like a beverage cooler, warming drawer, or even extra cabinets are just a few examples.
Custom Bedroom Closets & Office Desk Built Ins: Install custom floor to ceiling built-ins for your clothing, linens and other personal items instead of buying bulky dressers. By installing a built-in desk, storage and shelving perfect for homework and keeping paperwork organized you create a much needed work space along the wall of a bedroom.
Built In Bathroom Cabinets & Shelving: Storage often needs to be enhanced because the bathroom is typically the smallest room in the house. Particularly above the toilet, install built-in shelves in any unused space to offer you plenty of room for all of your accessories and personal items. A small bathroom would also benefit from a built-in corner medicine cabinet that not only adds function but beauty as well.
Custom Family Room Entertainment Center: Often designed to be your family’s entertainment hub, built-ins on an otherwise empty wall, are a great way to store all of your electronic equipment, as well as display books and other home accessories.
Custom Hallway Display Cabinets: Hallways have the potential to add space in your home. In a generally wasted space, the hallway is the perfect area to add functional storage and display areas. An example could be to display treasured possessions in a beautiful display case, complete with storage beneath it on a small wall.
Laundry Room Storage: By adding built-in storage below a window, you can enhance the utilitarian space in your home. Custom cabinetry, open shelving, and even a clothing rack are just a few examples. Utilize built-ins to maximize the beauty and function of the room by installing custom built-in counter space, if the laundry room is near your main living space and use it for storage and even a pet station for the furry members of the family.
