Built-in Closets & Cupboards – Palm Beach
If you are looking at having built-ins installed in your Palm Beach home, there are a few things you need to bear in mind. The design of your built-in closets should incorporate all your needs. You can work closely with a cabinetry company to ensure your design reflects your lifestyle. The sky is the limit. Here are some tips for designing built-ins for your Palm Beach home:
Decide what the built-ins will be used for
This seems obvious, but sometimes closets are simply installed without much thought other than that they fit. If you are fitting built-ins for your wardrobe or dressing room, take into consideration your clothing and accessories. Do you have a lot of hats? Then have a shelf designed for them. Are most of your shoes boots? Then ensure your shoe rack is long enough to accommodate them. Built-ins needn’t just be for your wardrobe, though. Bookshelves, storage closets, TV consoles and laundry rooms can all benefit from the built-in treatment.
Decide whether you are displaying or storing
Open shelves and cabinetry are on-trend: displaying pieces like your books, knick-knacks, prized crystal glasses collections and more. However, sometimes you have items you don’t want to show off. This will help you decide the style of your built-ins. You can spend more on the doors of the closets as opposed to the design of the shelves. Display built-ins needn’t be open to the elements, though. You can have closed doors with glass panels, allowing the contents to be seen.
Take advantage of some of the latest trends
Your built-ins needn’t be boring: there are so many ways you can express your style. Look on Pinterest and you will see that black and charcoal gray built-in bookshelves are a huge trend. Some other trends include:
- Complete white or off-white closets and cabinets;
- Colors like dark gray, navy blue, and even dark green;
- Built-in bookcases on either side of a doorway;
- Pairing white bookshelves with reclaimed wood;
- Floor-to-ceiling cabinets on either side of a TV, mounted on the wall;
- Light gray cabinets paired with gold or brass hardware.
