By Design Perspective on February 18, 2014
Custom built-ins can really make a space shine. They can be a great architectural detail to a room, and the perfect solution for extra storage as well as displaying all those accessories.
We typically see bult-ins in family rooms or living room, but those aren't the only places you can have custom built-ins. Today, we are adding them to dining rooms, bedrooms, hallways, etc.
There are several ways built-ins can be designed, and below are some key elements to think about when designing your custom built-ins.
Full-height vs Short-height:
Design: Traditional, contemporary, etc. The options are endless
Finish: Stain vs Paint
Storage: Open shelves vs Closed Doors or Both
Shelves: Glass vs Wood
Backs: There are so many options here, face with wallpaper, paint the back an accent color, face with paneling, etc
Door Design: To be faced with a mesh, unique wood panel design, or standard wood door
