Why You Need Built-in Storage

Why You Need Built-in Storage

For many people, the biggest gripe they have about their home can be summed up in one word: storage. No matter how many closets, drawers, cabinets, chests, cubbies, or bins they have, it never seems to be enough to hold all the things they own. Some people view this as an opportunity to purge. Others, though, view this as an opportunity to buy more containers of one sort or another. And while that might work for a while, there comes a time when all of those extra chests and cabinets and cubbies (and everything else) start to get in the way. So, what’s the solution? Well, you could go the purging route, or you could consider something different: built-in storage. What is built-in storage? Simply put, built-in storage is exactly what it sounds like. Rather than using “extra” items like crates or chests to store things, storage areas are literally built right into the walls of the room.

Here’s why built-in drawers are great:

Better use of existing space

Everyone’s home is different, but most likely there are spots in your house where the space is not being used effectively. These could be corners, nooks, weirdly-placed crawlspaces, openings under the stairs, or other spots that just don’t let you use the space the way you need to. By turning these areas into dedicated built-in storage areas, you take awkward or unused space and give it a function.

In addition to using that space more effectively, you are also able to get rid of some of those chests, cubbies, and other containers that have been crowding your rooms. So, you not only make better use of your existing space, you also are able to declutter your house a little bit in the process.

Creative design options

As long as you’re adding built-in drawers and other storage options to your house, you might as well go all out and get storage that is not only functional, but visually exciting as well. The great news about built-in drawers? You can pretty much have them look anyway you want, so whatever your house’s design, layout, or decorations are at the moment, you can have storage that fits in and enhances the look and feel of your home.
