It’s a New Year, and many of our New Jersey clients are buzzing about the latest comeback in the design world: custom built-ins. Why? It gives them the opportunity to take full advantage of their dream home by maximizing the space, flow, and functionality. This tailored approach gives our clients the opportunity to personalize and maximize the space they are going to live in. Here are some of the biggest reasons why you should consider using this creative solution in your next New Jersey home build project.
A Storage-Friendly Solution
First and foremost, freestanding furniture can take up a lot of space in your home. If you’re in the middle of a new build or renovation, it’s unlikely that you picked out all the furniture ahead of time. Sometimes the furniture you choose, no matter how beautiful, does not sit right in the space it’s meant for. Quality built-in furniture will open up any space without taking away from the aesthetic of your dream home.
The Best Home Organization
There is no better way to organize all of your knick-knacks than by opting for a custom design. Whether you have children, hobbies, or a lot of memorabilia, this choice is guaranteed to free your dream home from unsightly clutter (and impress your guests). Not to mention, you’ll be nearly doubling the area in each room by giving the items in your household a dual purpose. Consider using this organizational technique in your bedroom, family room, or kitchen to keep things neat and tidy.
Adding a Personal Touch
If you’re spending the time and energy on a custom New Jersey home, make sure you add a personal touch to make it your own. Built-ins offer a unique look and feel that you won’t find in any furniture store. You have the unique ability to make your own mark on the home, whether it be a covert bookcase in the study or a luxurious closet in the master suite. What you choose to incorporate in your space is only limited by your imagination.
A Premium, High-Quality Finish
When you’re thinking about your ideal life along the New Jersey coastline, consider focusing on quality over quantity. Free-standing furniture might save you money in the short term, but built-ins will give you the best value for your money. Forged with premium materials and high-end craftsmanship, these custom touches offer maximum functionality that are guaranteed to withstand the test of time.
Give Everything a Dedicated Space
Your home can lose its charm by making the inside feel crowded, awkward, or too busy, even with a generous amount of square footage. Keep your belongings separate, but not “noisy,” with a built-in area that blends into the space. Not to mention, these sleek home additions can serve as the perfect display for nostalgic keepsakes or personal collections. Make sure your valuables have a dedicated space without taking away from the overall ambiance. Custom built-ins will give your New Jersey home a high-end look and feel, brining all of your décor, heirlooms, and mementos to life.
Use a Cohesive Look Throughout
When you begin to fill in the space inside your custom home, you do not want it to look mismatched or choppy. Even if you choose high quality furniture and décor, it can be tough to smoothly transition from one room to the next without feeling like there is disconnect. Integrating custom designs into the home’s foundation will add synergy, ensuring that there is proper balance and flow regardless of independent style choices. Consider using a durable material, like solid hardwood, for a column of shelving in your kitchen and a cubby configuration in the living or dining room.
Compliment Your Home’s Architecture
Last but not least, custom built-ins are a creative way to compliment the architectural style of any property. Perhaps you want the interior charm of a bungalow, but have a different vision for the home’s exterior. By starting from scratch, you have complete flexibility to tailor each element of the build to your liking. You do not need to take a single, unified approach to your home – you can replicate a variety of architectural features. With the right vision and high quality craftsmanship, the options for your New Jersey dream home are limitless.
If you are considering a renovation or new build, you are probably on your way to creating your forever home. Custom built-ins will give you the quality and durability you need to make the most out of your investment. The end result will be a space that is one-of-a-kind and fully tailored to meet your needs.
