Storage Cabinets Beyond the Kitchen

Storage Cabinets Beyond the Kitchen

When it comes to savvy storage cabinets, it’s time to think outside the kitchen. Most people desire more storage in other areas of their home, but regular kitchen cabinets aren’t often considered. With cleverly-designed custom cabinets, you can add a plethora of storage options to other areas in your home you might never have considered.

Family Room

The family room tends to be a central spot for everything, from movie-watching to study hall to family game night. It also tends to attract the most clutter! A great storage and de-cluttering solution is to line one wall with Denver custom cabinets that include doors and open bookshelves surrounding the TV. Add pull-out shelves within the cabinets to house gaming devices or pull-out bins to hold toys. You can also customize cabinets with glass doors which will make it easier to locate games, DVDs, and other entertainment items.

Home Office

Working from home is becoming more popular. And with it, the demand for dedicated office space. With such a wide variety of kitchen cabinets available, you can create a unique space far-removed from the typical office desk. Countertops make elegant desktops, built-in cutlery trays keep small supplies organized, and a deep roll-out tray can house a printer, ready to be tucked away when not in use. For an added benefit, you can incorporate hanging file hardware and dividers inside full-extension drawers. Keep trash and recyclable items out of sight with custom pull-out bins. Most people would agree that working amongst clutter is distracting, but a well-designed cabinet layout will keep you organized and focused.

Study Nook

Homeowners have started to realize the potential of unused space beneath their stairs. Because of this, the creative ideas are flowing. Custom cabinets can transform the challenging space into a charming desk area or intimate reading nook, complete with built-in storage. To showcase your personal style, tailor the layout to offer a mix of open shelving and enclosed cabinet boxes. There may be some items you wish to display, while others you may prefer to keep tucked away. To further save on limited space, add a pendant light or recessed LED light on the underside of the stairs to eliminate the need for a table lamp.

Crafter’s Room

Every crafter dreams of an organized, dedicated area with enough counter space to work on and plenty of places to stash away craft materials. A seamstress would especially benefit from a tall cabinet that can store an ironing board. Plus, open shelving to showcase fabrics, yarns, and other DIY supplies. Plenty of divided drawers for beads, buttons, glue guns, decorative paper and all other crafting necessities will keep the space streamlined and manageable. Many styles of kitchen cabinets can be customized with built-in features to accommodate the crafter’s dream, so let your creativity flow!
