Clever Built-In Storage Ideas You’ll Wonder How You Lived Without


Built-in storage can add style, function, and value to your home. They can also help you problem-solve those tough storage areas such as under the stairs, attics, or dining rooms in a way that adds charm, not clutter. Read on for a few clever ideas that you’ll want to “build into” your home decor…ideas you’ll wonder how you ever lived without.

Under the stairs

If you have stairs, chances are you have space under those stairs either in a closet or out in the open in an entry or hallway. Make the most of this awkward space with under stair cabinets. If in a closet, maximize under the stairs storage with shelves and drawers. If located in a landing or entryway, consider a built in bench with drawers or a bookshelf/bench combo.

In the bedroom

Creative built-ins go beyond the closet with these bedroom ideas. Consider dressers that are custom built to fit in corners or unique spaces, or floating bedside tables for something that feels one-of-a-kind. These ideas are an added bonus if you have a small bedroom…they will keep the flow of the room uninterrupted.

In the kitchen

Sure we love custom cabinets and all the endless organization opportunities that go with them, but there are other ways to bring custom solutions to your kitchen. Consider your breakfast nook for example…include a built-in bench for your table that features glass display cases on either side. Guests are sure to remember and enjoy this feature in your home.
