If you’re looking for home improvement ideas, we highly recommend that you incorporate built-in storage into your home. Built-in storage is a great way to increase the amount of storage space in your home without having it take up space. The following are a few ideas that you can use when deciding what types of built-in storage spaces you want:
- Seating – If you have any windows that provide a beautiful view, consider installing window seating. This could make for the perfect reading spot since you’ll not only have views of lovely scenery to help you relax, but also plenty of natural light. You can use this banquette style window seating as storage as well. Install drawers or cabinets below the seating to hold extra pillows, blankets, books or magazines.
- Vertical Space – Are there any areas above the doorways throughout your home that you are not using? Build a built-in bookshelf above the doorway to store some of your books or decorative items. Not only does this provide you with some out of the way storage space, it provides a unique visual element to the room. You can also choose to build a series of cubbies or cabinets in this space instead of shelves to help store seasonal belongings that you only need to access at certain times of the year.
- Stairs – The stairway tends to take up a lot of room, so why not create a pull-out wine cubby right underneath the staircase landing? This is a great way to make use of space that often goes wasted. If you already have a storage space for your wine, consider installing shelves into the staircase landing instead.
