If you look back at the architecture of the past, you will notice that there was often less concealed storage (much to the chagrin of modern home buyers) and more room for display pieces. Today’s modern real estate developers try to get the most storage they can possibly squeeze into a space because closets help sell homes. However, too often we see odd, small closets cluttering up otherwise lovely walls. These tiny closets are hardly helping solve storage solutions and can be really distracting from the aesthetic of a room. The solution? Built ins!
I love to create built in display and storage nooks from small, somewhat useless closets. By removing the doors and frames and simply adding in some cabinetry and shelving, the boring becomes beautiful!
