Built-ins could be the permanent solution for the space you need.
It’s true, all over the globe, when it comes to home design and home remodeling, there is a love affair with built-ins. Many question why. After all, you can’t
take anything built-in with you, if you decide to sell your home. Considering that fact alone makes many homeowners wonder what the fuss is all about.
Yet, once you fall in love with built-ins, it will be hard to ever live without them. The beautiful design to accommodate a built-in and the fact that built-ins add space to your home, make it a permanent solution for hard to find added storage areas.
Planning Your Built-ins
A built-in is defined as something built into the home that becomes a permanent attachment. If you are doing a home remodel to include built-in features, you want to make sure that the built-in meshes well and blends with your existing architectural aesthetic.

You may be unsure as to how to incorporate built-ins into your home remodel, rest assured that Roeser Home Remodeling will go over every minor detail with you. Since built-ins are a permanent solution for space and will stay with the home through every owner, what are some of the more desirable built-in options?
The first thing that may come to mind when considering a built-in is bookshelves. Built-in open bookshelves, or bookshelves with drawers, either way, it is a winner. Adding drawers to the built-in bookshelves will give added space to hide away items you don’t want in clear view. It is also a great place to add a cabinet area to store games, craft or school supplies. Built-in bookshelves give a special place to display not just books, but those special mementos and collectible items.
With weather changing the way it does in St. Louis, Roeser Home Remodeling thinks it’s a great idea to add a built-in gas fireplace for those cool and chilly evenings we have. Not only will a built-in fireplace add ambience, but it is functional as well to add warmth and coziness to your family areas.
While thinking of warmth and coziness, how about a built-in window seat? This would be the perfect spot for reading or relaxing on a rainy St. Louis day. An added benefit to a built-in window seat would be to add underneath storage below the cushions. This would be a great spot to store rarely used items such as extra pillows or throws.
Clean Up Your Electronics
When designing your built-in space there is no limit as to what you can do. A perfect solution for extra space is to add a television entertainment area with built-in space to store electronics and charging stations along with routers and computer gear. It is also the perfect built-in space to store DVD’s and computer games.
Divide a Room
Built-in shelves can also be used as a room divider to provide some privacy in open design areas. You can incorporate built-ins for laundry rooms or mud rooms adding built-in coat and shoe racks. In home office areas, adding lofted shelving and cabinets would serve for easy organization and additional storage for office supplies.
