Custom Built-Ins for a Luxuriously Functional Home

Whether you want to transform a lackluster space with limited storage or add a unique flair to your living room, custom built-ins can help make your vision a reality. Better yet, custom built-ins add value and quality to your home, upping your home’s resale value (should you ever want to leave, of course)!  

The Cabinet Chic showcases beautiful built-in ideas so you can truly have happiness built into your home! Get ready for some design inspiration for your haute couture home.

The Benefits of Built-Ins  

For homeowners wanting to maximize the space in their homes, there is nothing more satisfying and versatile than custom built-ins.  

Suitable to transform any space in your home, custom built-ins:

  • Add functionality  
  • Reduce clutter  
  • Improve space utilization
  • Enhance your home’s decor  
  • Increase the value of your home as built-ins are an attractive proposition for prospective buyers.  

Beautiful Built-In Ideas

Here are a few built-in ideas to consider for each room:  


The kitchen is a great place to start because, let’s be honest, everyone could use more storage space in the busiest area of the home!  

Instead of adding bulky cabinetry to your kitchen, consider taking an available wall or empty corner space and designing stunning built-in shelves instead. This ensures that your most essential items are showcased and in arm’s reach, from cookbooks to your fine dishware, there is space for everything.  

For extra functionality and style, reinvigorate your space with a breakfast bar nook with a desk and extra cabinet space.  

Living Room

When it comes to built-ins, the living room tends to rank high on the priority list. Built-ins allow you to transform part of your space into a functional accent wall. This is where you can get creative and play with different shapes and configurations to create an entertainment center that surrounds the TV wall.  

Built-ins open your living area
and add character and charm to your space.

Think of all the storage that you will gain with custom built-ins. You’ll have a place to store books, DVDs, records, board games, and more!  

More Design Tips > Living Room Storage Inspiration


If you lack floor space, built-ins in the stairway could be a unique option to infuse your home with a little more storage space. These built-ins are especially great because they are designed and customized to your staircase.  

They can include shelves, pull-out drawers, and cabinetry to help you make the most of your limited space. No more shoes, coats, and dog leashes in the hallway!


If you have ample small toiletries that clutter up your bathroom no matter how much you organize, make the most of your space with built-ins.  

Think about it - you could have a slender built-in unit that rises between the mirrors, keeping your toiletries and towels close at hand when getting ready for the day.  

No wall space is too skinny for built-ins!
Look for small slices of space
often lurking in your bathroom.


While the office is usually where you might see built-ins, you should consider the bedroom too. The same wall or corner built-ins that you might use in an office space can be just as functional in a bedroom.  

Cabinet Chic Tip: If you have a small bedroom, consider removing the limited closet space and expanding it to create a full wall built-in unit that hides away your everyday items.

Laundry Room

Don’t forget about the laundry room! Add racks, shelves, or built-in cabinets around your washer and dryer to streamline the space. Doing so will allow you to create practical zones where you can fold clothing, iron, hang clothes to dry, store laundry supplies, and more.
