It might seem like we gave this blog post an unusual title. After all, when you think about storage solutions, terms like “sophistication” and “charm” aren’t the first things on your mind.
But built-in cabinetry adds a sophisticated touch to any room. Think of it as an antidote to knock-down furniture made from cheap materials. With a little additional investment, you can have a designer look that you will enjoy for years to come.
Here are three advantages to installing custom built-in cabinetry in your home.
1. Built-In Cabinetry can Save You Money as well as Space
Most storage solutions require you to set aside space in your home for dressers, bookcases or other fixtures. If you have limited space, things can quickly begin to look cluttered.
Built-in cabinetry, however, fits in cleanly with your walls and existing structures of your home, therefore saving you space. Again, it’s a larger upfront investment, but you’ll save money in the long-run by not having to keep adding new furniture or storage pieces.
With built-in cabinetry, you have a new place to display your prized possessions. It also lets you occupy an entire wall without making your rooms feel smaller
2. There’s Less Maintenance Involved
How often do you dust your bookcases and other furniture? It’s probably not the most exciting part of your week, dusting your storage options, as well as all your books, DVDs, knick-knacks, etc. But with built-in cabinetry, there’s less dusting involved, especially if you choose a design that has a wooden or glass door to protect your things. Just keep the cabinets themselves polished and you can call it a day
3. Built-In Cabinets Have a Sleek Look
Visit a home that has built-in cabinets and you’ll notice the sleek, streamlined look rooms get from this storage solution. They look elegant and well-planned, not messy or cluttered.
Built-in cabinetry can utilize small and awkwardly shaped spaces (think of the area under your stairs, or the space between your refrigerator and kitchen wall). And having custom built-in cabinetry lets you create a cohesive look to your entire house.
