Custom Built-Ins For a Functional Home

Custom built-ins are a great way to make your dream space a reality. They can add value to your home and increase its resale potential (should you ever decide to move).

The French Refinery features beautiful built-in ideas that will make your home feel luxurious and chic. These are some built-in ideas for every room:


Instead of adding bulky cabinets to your kitchen, you might consider using a wall or corner space as a blank canvas and creating stunning built-in shelves. This will ensure that all your essential items, including cookbooks and fine dishware, are easily accessible.

Living Room

The living area is a top choice for built-ins. Built-ins let you transform a portion of your space into an accent wall. You can be creative with the configurations and shapes you choose to create an entertainment center that surrounds your TV wall.


Built-ins on the stairway can be a great way to add a bit more storage space to your home if you have limited floor space. These built-ins can be customized to fit your staircase and are extremely useful.


You could think about it: a slim unit with built-in storage that rises between your mirrors. They can be a great way to keep your towels and toiletries close by as you get ready for the day.


Although the office may be the most common place to see built-ins in, the bedroom should also be considered. A bedroom can have the same corner or wall built-ins as an office space.

Laundry Room

The laundry room is also important! To streamline your laundry room, add shelves, racks, or built-in cupboards around the washer and dryer. This will make it possible to organize, iron and, dry clothes, and store laundry supplies in practical areas.
