When it comes to new construction, I am always fascinated by – and quite envious of – built-ins. I’ve seen unique storage solutions that run the gamut from a gigantic owner’s suite walk-in closet featuring a custom-built and upholstered circular seat complete with shoe drawers to the more common “Costco” pantries and well-purposed kitchen cabinet/island designs.
Built-in storage can be used to fight clutter in virtually every room of your home. From simple shelving to intricate cabinet installations, whether building or remodeling, the key to success is planning ahead.
With over 200 innovative options, KraftMaid® provides an organized place for just about everything you can think of, starting with smart food storage that gives you easy access to all your pantry essentials and cooking ingredients with a selection of roll-out trays and rotating shelves. Then, there’s a drawer for every pot, pan, lid and tray, as well as a pop up shelf for your mixer and a cooking center base to keep all your knives, cutlery, gadgets and table ware neatly arranged.
In the bath, you can hide your wastebasket in a cabinet, create a custom vanity with hamper base and pull out appliance organizer, add storage to cabinet doors for small appliances and a linen closet plus vertical lift doors around the tub so towels are always within easy reach.
Along with these practical solutions, consider a built-in ironing board and open basket cabinets for the laundry room, window seats with drawers or cabinets below in just about any room, mudrooms and entry ways with storage lockers plus basket shelves above and/or below with cupboards alongside are both practical and attractive, while cabinets for filing and organizing supplies make the most of the space in home offices, libraries and craft rooms.
KraftMaid also has a wide selection of stylish entertainment centers and display/storage cabinets that can be mixed and matched in great rooms and dining rooms, accommodating everything from table linens and china collections to bar supplies and wine collections. Beyond that, customized bedroom suites, closet designs and armoires elegantly store clothing and bed linens.
