For the little ones in your life, reaching the sink can be a daily test. This clever kids’ bathroom has a stool built into the drawers.
Architectural elements add charm to any space, and this built-in seat highlights the beautiful arch above. Lantern sconces and storage bins make this nook feel like a cocoon.
Camouflage everyday storage by hiding it in an unusual spot, as with this pullout wine cubby located under a staircase landing. The beaded-board front panel of this cabinet is identical to the rest of the wall -- the only hint of a secret wine cellar is a single bin pull.
Built-in benches offer easy seating for this backyard pool. Cushions and pillows in bright colors add personality to this simple space.
Organization WallThis custom panel provides hooks for storage and a neatly integrated bench.
Bold ColorWith two walls of shelves and bright blue paint, these bookshelves are both functional and decorative.
Maximize storage and display options by incorporating bookshelves above doorways or along unused wall space.
Bold red accenting gives these two-way shelves a colorful pop. With glass on either side, they link the kitchen and living room.
Flank the Fireplace
Flanking a mantel, window seats create a focal point while offering extra seating and convenient, out-of-the-way storage.
Built-in Drop Spot
An entryway bench lends extra storage and character. Laundry baskets underneath hold towels or toys, and the addition can multitask as a handy seat or shelf for backpacks, groceries, or boxes.
Built-in seating has a place outdoors as well. Concrete benches, accessorized with plenty of pillows, make lounging a breeze in this outdoor living room.
A permanent island wouldn’t fit in this long, narrow kitchen. Instead, a rolling custom cabinet adds stowaway utility.
This hardworking buffet provides storage for silver and dishware, plus two display cases for treasured collectibles.
Cabinets often frame windows, but in this kitchen, shelves span the opening, which backlights the green and turquoise glasses.
Wall of BooksBooks of all shapes and sizes complement the simple, sleek architecture of this custom bookshelf.
The door to this closet once opened into the room, taking up valuable floor space. By taking off the door and adding a few shelves and simple trim work, this former trouble-spot becomes a studious workspace. A curtain made from hemstitched cotton twin sheets hides a metal filing cabinet below.
