Did anybody read the tile for this article? These pictures show an alternative to built-ins. Although I personally like built-ins, its interesting to see another perspective on a design element. Good job. Keep mixing design up.

I want something besides built-ins for the sake of resale and to leave choices to the next owners. We are in our 70s and have no illusions about living here until the house dies of old age. It'll outlast us by a long shot.

also to love the mirrors and lamp example.
