Built-ins can make any house more functional, livable, personalized, and comfortable, and they cost much less to construct and install than a whole-room remodel. In this completely revised and updated edition of Built-Ins Idea Book, Heather J. Paper has collected inspirational and practical storage solutions for every room of the house. With the addition of a few well-placed built-ins, a two-small kitchen can become more efficient and inviting, a cramped bathroom can become more useful and organized, and a living room or workspace can become more productive and spacious. By reclaiming space that would otherwise go unused, built-ins offer a way to transform any house into a home.
The latest volume in Taunton's successful Idea Book series, Built-Ins Idea Book is packed with creative yet approachable ideas and is richly illustrated with 260 photographs, practical sidebars, and designs of all kinds that will appeal to a wide range of tastes and budgets. Whether your goal is adding seating to a nook or other small space, creating a mudroom in your entryway to keep messes at bay, or transforming a room into a multipurpose space, built-ins offer homeowners the chance to craft a home that is uniquely their own.
