Built-in furniture is an effective way to enhance your home while utilizing underused or unused areas, such as under a staircase or around a fireplace. Custom built-ins can include a number of features like drawers, open shelves, cubbies and doors. Best of all, they’re designed to blend in beautifully with your home and fit perfectly in your space.
Let’s learn more about built-ins and how they can elevate your home in Los Angeles.
What are Built-Ins?
Built-ins can be shelving, benches, drawers, forts and even dog houses! They are built into the interior of a home, such as along a wall, around a fireplace or in a home office. They can also be installed in less obvious places like under a staircase or at the end of a pantry cabinet.
Built-ins are becoming popular additions to homes in Los Angeles because they’re beautiful, elegant and practical. Their purpose is to provide additional storage to your living space. This way, you can showcase your favorite items while keeping your floors, countertops and accent tables clear.
Benefits of Adding Built-Ins to Your Home
Built-ins are a great way to make use of the space in your home. If you’re not planning on moving but could benefit from more storage space, built-ins are an effective solution! If you opt for shelves, you can display collections, glassware, pottery, books, photographs and more.
Built-ins can also store items. By installing doors on the lower half of the unit, you can hide extra blankets, pillows, video games or toys. These cabinets provide a quick and easy way to clean up your living space – which is great when you have company coming!
There is also the option to add unique features like recessed lighting and mirrors. Built-in lighting will showcase collections, while mirrors make the room appear larger than it actually is.
Do Built-Ins Add Value to Properties?
Whether you plan to sell or keep your home, it’s nice to know that the investments you make will pay off. Built-ins bring value to the home, and the right buyers will be willing to pay more. Having these units frees up space, elevates the home and allows you to showcase special items without them looking cluttered.
However, you’ll want to make sure that your built-ins are high quality. It’s best to hire a professional who can measure, design, build and install your built-in furniture. This ensures everything is done to the highest standards. You can also ask your professional builder to make adjustable shelves so that you can reconfigure the space as needed.
