Built-ins make cozy comeback
Built-in furniture and cabinets have cycled in and out of favor for centuries. Now they’re making a comeback, inspired by the better-not-bigger trend in residential design.
“Built-in storage seems to be more on people’s radar,”said Jean Rehkamp Larson of Rehkamp Larson Architects. “There’s also a thoughtfulness about making them part of a home’s architecture.”
Today’s built-ins house everything from flat-screen TVs to kids’ sports equipment, but their smart, space-saving utility is timeless — and adds to a home’s appeal.
