Accentuate Your Home’s Features

When installing built-ins for living room spaces, it’s important to consider the overall design of the room. For a room that’s long and narrow like the one pictured above, it’s a good idea make use of the longer wall by installing wall-to-wall cabinets. These cabinets look substantial, whereas a free-standing entertainment center may not look anchored in the room. First, we mounted the television and hid all the electrical cords. Then, we mixed it up with both wood and glass cabinet doors. The wood provides hidden storage and the glass allows entertainment systems to be operated by remote.

Clean and Modern

For this bright and airy living room, we wanted to add utility without weighing down the room. First, we added built-in shelves and cabinets on either side of the window. We made sure to leave enough room for the client’s modern navy couch. Then, we added a compact workspace at the front door with white cabinetry and a walnut desktop.

A Living Room and Foyer Combination

For this Philadelphia client, space was definitely at a premium. Their front door opens to their living room which left them with no place to store their coats (let alone their guests’ coats). To solve this problem and add some dimension to the room, we installed bright white wall-to-wall built-ins. The open shelving provides storage for books and other small items while the two cabinets with doors are actually coat closets and shoe storage! Because these are custom built-ins for their living room, we ensured our clients had full access to the window in the corner by installing the last section of shelving at an angle.
