What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Built-in cabinetry. Built-in cabinetry is both luxurious and practical. It has the potential to add character, practicality and personality to a space.One of my favorite types of built-in cabinetry is integrated bookshelves that create a warm library feel when done with wood surfaces, as shown here. Another idea to consider is a concealed TV and entertainment unit. As TVs get bigger and bigger, there is a growing need to hide them so they don’t become the feature of the room. Woodwork is a wonderful option for hiding technology, so you can appreciate a lovely piece of built-in furniture instead of yet another screen. Some cabinetry items need to be accounted for at the design stage, while others can be added during the build-renovation process. Your designer should be able to help you plan for each.
4. In the hallway. If there is one space in your house almost guaranteed to have an open wall, it’s your hallway. Before you get too excited, however, take note: Hallways can be slim and dark. That’s why this example is so inspiring. The shelves are built into the wall, so they don’t jut out and get in the way. Moreover, there is plenty of lighting, effectively turning this corridor into a comfortable library.
