The Lure of Built-Ins- They’re Not Just for Books Anymore

Built-ins can be amazing assets to new construction homes, existing houses and properties of all shapes and sizes. As the quest for minimalism grows alongside the simultaneous acquisition of more stuff, homeowners need more space. Sometimes the space isn't for items, it is to accommodate more people or plants. But one thing's for sure- today's built-ins are not standard issue; these wonders of design can be beautiful as well as practical. Check out some of the amazing ways to use built-ins in the home.

There is really no limit on the ways a homeowner can incorporate built-ins into a home. It just depends on priorities, taste and budget. Kitchens are ideal places to create that idyllic breakfast nook. Bathrooms are notorious for needing extra storage for towels and toiletries. Extra shelving is always welcome in the utility room. Entertainment areas benefit from shelving for games, movies and equipment. Additional seating like window seats make charming retreats for the readers in the household. Owners of vacation homes may consider adding bunks or daybeds as built-ins to provide more sleeping room.

Own an older home where storage is an issue? No problem. Building a new construction home and want to make sure it has all of the modern touches? Sure thing. Built-ins answer both of these concerns with ease and flexibility. Homeowners with existing homes can contact skilled contractors who can aid them. Those building new homes can work with their builders to find out what type of built-ins may be available. It is rare to find new homes being built without these requested features nowadays. Built-ins bring fun and function to new construction homes, older houses and condos alike.
