Custom Built-Ins in Children’s Rooms

When it comes to room design, adding built-ins can often be just what’s needed. There is something to be said for existing furniture that has sentimental value, but when it comes to adding function and creating the perfect fit, a customized piece is often the best solution. Custom built-ins are great, and designing them with personality is what makes them one-of-a-kind.

Built-ins create storage areas that are functional and beautiful. The ability to design exactly what you need and add your own finishing touches allows for unlimited creativity.

Built-ins are also perfect for tight spaces where maximizing space and storage is a must. Creating nooks and platforms in unexpected places can be great fun.

A special window seat with a customized shelf system is one of my favorite ways to create a built-in. It is intimate and functional at the same time.
