Construction2style: Before and After Project

By Morgan Molitor

Holla! Another fun project wrapped up. This past month we’ve been kicking out built-ins like no-ones business. Three to be exact. We love our built-ins. They always make your room feel larger and more put together, and best of all- a lot more added storage.

Built-ins are all about the style and function. Looking at this particular room, storage was a problem as well as space for decor.

Our built-ins are custom made so we always maximize every square inch of our clients homes. If you ask us, built-in storage units can add hundreds of square feet to your home without the need for renovations.

So here it is, check it out and let us know what you think…

We wanted to go with an all white design style being the space was a little smaller. We fell in love with this Moroccan lantern shape tile from Home Depot, and bonus- great cost. We ended up painting all of the cabinetry White Dove by Benjamin Moore (our favorite!).

We custom made the built-ins at home in a few different pieces. Once we were finished we did the full install and all finishing detail and touches within the home. And luckily for us, everything fit like a glove with no mishaps. That doesn’t always happen.
