3 Reasons to Install Built-In Shelves

When it comes to decorating your home it can feel like an endless stream of purchasing furniture and decor. Furniture and decor that is functional and aesthetically pleasing is needed in every room.

When it comes to decorating your home it can feel like an endless stream of purchasing furniture and decor.  Furniture and decor that is functional and aesthetically pleasing is needed in every room. While some things are purely for decor, most need to serve a dual purpose.  Shelving, for example, holds things like books, collectibles, clothing, other decor and more.  Bookshelves or other types of shelving are useful because otherwise you would have nowhere to properly store things but they also take up space.  Many people are pressed for space in their home and one great way to give a room a completed look, store items and decorate a room is with built-in shelving.  Built-in shelves are an ideal alternative to other kinds of shelving and below we discuss 3 reasons a homeowner should install built-in shelving.

1. High-End Style

Anyone can go to the store and purchase a bookshelf to place in a room.  While this is a practical approach in some instances, for the most part, a built-in shelf is a better alternative because it is functional and looks high end.  Go to any well-designed, high end home and you will likely see built-in shelving.  Why?  Because built-in shelves give any room a seamless, custom, and completed look that simply cannot be achieved with other kinds of furniture.

2. Maximize Space

Whether you have a small room or just want to maximize whatever space you have, built-in shelves are the way to do it.  Have a small nook that is going unused?  Maximize the space with built-in shelves.  Do not want to use precious square footage in a small room with big bulky furniture?  Install custom built-in wall shelves.  Built-in shelves are the ideal way to create more space in any home.

3. Custom Fit & Finish

When you install built-in shelving you get the option to customize it to your home and your needs.  Custom built-in shelves present a unique opportunity to not only maximize space and create a dramatic or seamless look in your home but to get shelves that perfectly suit your needs.  Built-in shelving in a closet can be customized with the right height, depth, width, amount of shelves and more so that you can store more clothing than you would be otherwise able to.  Want to add some extra cabinet space below your shelves to built-in shelving in your office?  No problem.  Rather than buying generic furniture why not design built-in shelving to meet your specific needs?
