More and more Americans are embracing the small living lifestyle, whether they are flocking to the cities to live in micro-studios or embracing the tiny house movement that is sweeping the nation. However, the fact is that homeowners and renters often need to be creative when it comes to making the most of their smaller living quarters. Many websites offer advice to those new to this living situation about different products that they can buy to make their space more versatile. However, combining too many of these storage solutions and other products can make a space feel cluttered or overly utilitarian. Many homeowners are looking for options that can make their small space both more livable and more beautiful. One option is considering adding built-in cabinets and shelving. Built-ins are reminiscent of the details and craftsmanship of older homes, helping to keep them feel more homey than many of the more modular and temporary storage spaces used by many in smaller homes. Built-in storage also offers a great opportunity to show a homeowner’s personality through the use of interesting shapes, colors, trim, and even other details such as unique drawer pulls and knobs. There are even ways to get the built-in look for less by using prefabricated furniture like the kind that can be bought at stores like Ikea. This means that everyone living in a small space can enjoy the look and functionality of a built-in, regardless of their skills as a handyman.
