Built-in Furniture Ideas - Photos

These photos come from the Washington Post giving the reader some great ideas on built-ins around a wall where additional storage is utilized with drawers while also serving as a wall seat or window seat idea. Today, drawer glides are available that are mostly hidden and soft closing ranging in price from $50 to $75 per set. Plywood can be used and solid front in construction.

Here we have built-ins next to a mantle design where normally the mantle section would protrude into the room. With this style, a seamless unit is portrayed that blends into the mantle as one piece offering a clean unobstructive appearance and use.
