Why Do People like Custom built-ins?

Why do people like custom built-ins? There are many reasons, among the main ones are to give your home a more finished warm and inviting look, a place to store your books, family heirlooms, or collections. They are also perfect for being the center of focus for your home entertainment, housing not only your television, but a great place to hide all the accompanying electronics that go with it, not to mention the gaming equipment. Maybe you need a home office to work from, or just a place to pay bills, even a separate place for the kids to do their homework. In short, each home has its own particular set of needs, and it needs cabinets designed to best utilize the space available.

When you are trying to decide what you need in a room and if built-ins can help, do some research on the web, based on what you hope to achieve in regard to your own home. In the case of a built-in for your entertainment center, think of how you want to incorporate it into your space, do you need extra room to house your books and family photo's? Do you want it to be simple and just hold the television and its extra components stored in a cabinet underneath or do you want it to encompass the full wall? Usually in a living room it will dominate an entire wall to become the showpiece, where in say, the master bedroom, you may want it to be simple and have a much smaller footprint. But we have built bedroom units that serve as storage for clothing, by using it as extra drawer space and even wardrobe areas where you can hang clothes.

We have also built units to store massive collections of record albums, antique toys, trophies, and of course books. Maybe you have a room you want to convert to a library, a quiet place to curl up with a good book on a chilly winter day.  We have built home study areas where the kids each had their own space and storage area, so they did not have to fight over a space to use their computer and do their homework. Plus, with individual storage for each section, there was less clutter and it made it easier to get everyone out the door in the morning.

If you do a lot of entertaining, a home bar is always a great place to gather, add in some glass doors and lighting, it can have a dramatic impact as well as being useful. It can make a smaller space into something fun and useful.

The uses of built ins are many and varied, only limited by your imagination and space.  They can make your home much more beautiful and easier to organize at the same time. Give us a call and we will be happy to meet with you to help design the perfect piece to take care of your needs while adding beauty and value to your home!
