50 Favorite #BuiltInStorageIdeas

Though this dining room is hardly big enough for a table and four chairs, sleek, glass-front built-in shelves and drawers make use of the space underneath the windows.

Storage is a common problem for most homeowners, but with effective and clever built-ins, organization is a no-brainer. Because built-ins are custom-made for each space, they maximize every square inch of your home. They can turn empty, unused space into hardworking home offices, drawers, shelves, or even entertainment centers. Essentially, built-in storage units can add hundreds of square feet to your home without the need for renovations.
