ADVANTAGES OF BUILT-INS:
- Built-ins blend in to your interior instead of standing out from it. Free-standing pieces of furniture can sometimes project out into the room as much as 24″ and tend to appear much “bulkier” than built-in cabinetry that is fitted to (or into) the wall.
- Built-ins can provide large quantities of storage because they can use an entire wall without overwhelming the look of the room.
- The trim in your house can be coordinated with the built-ins for a nice, cohesive look throughout.

- Lighting can easily be integrated into your built-in cabinetry which will add ambience to the room it’s in. Double bonus!
