What we keep in our homes is what makes them uniquely ours. But sometimes, the things that mean so much to us don’t quite fit inside our homes the way we’d like them to. Whether you’re looking for improved storage to control your clutter or an attractive way to display your most cherished belongings, custom built-ins can help. Here are four benefits of including them in your home:

1. They optimize your home’s storage.

Have you ever heard anyone complain that their home has too much storage space? Probably not. Keeping a home organized and tidy is a challenge for most homeowners. There are scores of books and TV shows on the subject. Store-bought storage solutions seldom work. Why? Because they never quite fit your particular storage needs and space requirements. 

Custom built-ins work because they are designed and built to maximize usable space (unlike that Ikea cabinet that will end up on the curb in two years). If you look around, there may be some ideal spaces in your home that could benefit from a custom-built storage solution. “Built-ins are especially beneficial in small or oddly-shaped areas because they are designed to your home’s exact size and space requirements,” notes Simon Thomas, shop foreman at The WoodWorks, Cormack’s woodworking division.  

2. They are versatile.

Custom built-ins are made for a variety of purposes and come in several forms, including bookshelves, cabinets, closets, media centers, under-stairway storage, and more. Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen, bathroom, basement, or attic, a custom built-in will suit your specific storage needs.

3. They blend in with your home’s aesthetic.

Unlike standalone storage solutions, built-ins seamlessly blend in with your home’s overall aesthetic. For example, you could have a custom display cabinet or bookshelf built with the same wood and finish as your trim and crown molding. The result is a functional and attractive storage solution that looks like it was always part of your home. Thomas points out that custom built-ins offer virtually endless style and design options. “Our clients choose from a variety of woods, finishes, and hardware, resulting in a high-quality, finished look you can't get in a store-bought piece,” Thomas notes

4. They are built to last.

Unlike mass-produced storage solutions, custom-made built-ins are constructed with high quality materials that will stand the test of time.
