Innovative Built-In Ideas

We know everyone has seen built-in bookcases, entertainment centers and mudrooms. So here is a series of innovative built-ins that we thought were very creative and useful. These tend to leave you thinking...

"Why didn't I think of that?!"

 Why just have recessed panels when you can use them to hide your books! This is just like in the movies when people reveal the hidden rooms by pulling a book, only you reveal the book by pulling the wall! This is great because it hides the clutter, and you can double the use for the space by hanging photos or dry-erase boards on the panels!

 This picture has been circling the internet for some time now, but no matter how many times we see it, I think I can speak for everyone when I say - I WANT THIS IN MY HOUSE! What a great use of space!

I love this one! If there isn't enough room for a cabinet, or cabinets aren't going with your style in a small bathroom, try recessed cabinets! It's great because the room is there behind the sink (thanks to plumbing) and it adds more space to your room! Plus, those nosey friends and family members will struggle to find what you're "hiding".

 Ok, I need this one. How great would it be to climb into the bathtub and have everything you need at your fingertips, and get out without leaving a mess? I don't like clutter in the corners, and with this design, you can hide all the shampoo and body wash bottles when you're done. Easy-peasy.

My laundry room is tiny and very difficult to organize. This is a terrific idea! Utilizing the doors, this person added built-ins on the doors and a shelf above the washer and dryer to come up with the most space-saving and ingenious design that is practical for any house!

I want this in my house! Save space by installing this cutting board inside one of your cabinets - now you can pull it out when you need it, and store it when you don't. Or, just use it for added counter space when you're busy in the kitchen!

Here's another ingenious idea for a staircase. No more wasted space under the stairs. This guy actually has a movable island that he uses as a wet bar. This would also be a great idea for a craft island - pull it out when you're working, and slide it away when you're done!

Ring in the New Year with Organization!

With the arrival of 2014, New Year's resolutions are sure to be on everyone's mind.  If your New Year's resolution is to get organized, here are a few ways to accomplish that.

1.  Desks

Desks with multiple drawers, file cabinets, and storage spaces can be the perfect solution to cleaning up the clutter.  We all know that paperwork can cause a lot of headaches.  However, a custom desk with multiple compartments for paperwork can help you maintain your composure and excess papers.

2. Built-Ins

Custom built-ins can give you added space for your family's newly acquired board games, TVs, DVDs, and any other gifts or treasures that were received during the holiday season.  Rather than trying to find ways to fit everything in the old and cramped spaces, a custom built-in can help you organize your new belongings while keeping them accessible for any occasion.

3. Custom Spaces

A custom space may be the ideal solution for getting organized and maintaining the clutter.  Designating a certain area to indulge in your latest hobby can help to eliminate the mess by providing a home for any item (i.e.- art supplies, craft supplies, etc.).  You can customize the space by adding cabinetry, built-ins, a desk, or even a curio cabinet to display your favorite pastime.  Your imagination is the only boundary (and the dimensions of the room of course!)
