When closets are bursting and drawers are jammed full, it may be time for a homeowner to consider investing in built-ins. This convenient and classy storage method can increase the usability of a living space by keeping everything neat and tidy.
Home improvement financing can be used to craft a built-in specially designed for an individual’s preference. Here are the three options that could provide the storage a homeowner needs:
1. Under stair cabinets. The dead space under stairs is the perfect opportunity to install a combination of open shelving and cabinets. A homeowner can take advantage of the cabinets to store items while leaving open shelves to display memorabilia.
2. Fireplace wall. Extend the molding and architectural details of a fireplace out into an expansive built-in. It will add personality to the space by continuing the theme of the fireplace mantel while still providing storage.
3. Nook desks. A common area desk conveniently placed in an unused nook in the kitchen or living room can make a great addition to a home. Whether a homeowner uses the space to pay the bills or children use it for school work, it can offer a solution to stacks of paper piling up on the kitchen counter.
