No matter what size your home is, storage space is always at a premium. As your family grows, storage becomes even more important. At TAB Associates, we leverage the functionality of built-ins to optimize the storage potential of every part of your home.
Seating Area Built-ins
Imagine an inviting built-in seating area in front of one of the coziest places in your home; the picture window. A lounging and seating area on top of a bench-style built-in that not only opens up on top with a piano hinge, but also has two or three shallow drawers to hold your favorite blanket. And how about flanking the window with a set of shelves to hold your favorite reading materials.
Platform beds can be improved with deep drawers built in beneath the platform to hold blankets and extra sheets and pillows.
Dividing Wall Built-ins
Dividing walls can do more than define living areas. They are also full of storage potential. Consider a dividing wall with two columns on either side of a cabinet-level divider. The columns themselves could consist of three or four drawers on the bottom half, with lighted, glass door-encased shelving on the top half to showcase family heirlooms or rare collectibles. The middle divider can act as a buffet, with drawers and cabinets on one side, such as facing into the dining room. You could even customize the drawers with dividers and felt lining to nestle your family’s best silverware.
Awkward Space Built-ins
Even the best homes have awkward spaces where you’re not sure what to do with them. These are ideal for custom built-ins. Do you have a small nook with a slanted ceiling in the bathroom? A custom built-in converts it into the perfect spot to store bath towels. Is there unused space on one side of your fireplace? Why not design for a built-in bookcase to house a book collection or to display family photos?
Does your entry way lack a coat closet? Instead of placing a piece of furniture such as a coat tree and bench, you can easily remedy the situation by installing a custom built-in deep enough to accommodate coat hooks, umbrellas and boots.
Custom built-ins ensure that every square inch of your home is put to good use. To get more built-in inspiration, please contact TAB Associates today.
