4 Built-In Storage Ideas From Your Local General Contractor, Rainy Lake, Minnesota

If you’re looking for ways to maximize space in your home, built-in shelving is an attractive way to create extra storage. You can build functional storage solutions in any room or available corner with the help of a general contractor. Our team at Up North Builders, located in International Falls, MN, can help with your home improvement project and add more style to your living spaces. Check out a few convenient ways we can add built-in storage and function to your home. 

General Contractors Explain 4 Ways to Add Built-in Storage

1. Kitchen & Pantry Shelving

Adding custom shelves in the kitchen or pantry is a smart way to incorporate storage solutions of any size to match your lifestyle. If you collect spices or kitchen knick knacks, hire a general contractor to design 5- or 6-inch cubbies to store your collection. Additionally, open shelving can be built into side walls and used as extra space to store dishes, linens, or canned goods.                                                                       

2. Under-Seat Shelving

A convenient place to store books, throws, or even toys is available with under-seat shelving. You can transform any space with a seating area and make it more functional by building storage areas underneath. A sun room with a corner window seat can quickly be transformed into a gorgeous lounging spot complete with inner shelves to tuck away your favorite books and magazines for safekeeping.

3. Pull-Out Steps

Steps that can turn into drawers sounds like an ingenious hack that will quickly become the go-to drop spot for the entire family. If guests are coming over, you can quickly hide shoes, toys, or other clutter in a pinch. Ideally, pull-out steps will help to organize your home and keep things looking tidy.

4. Hallway Shelving

Build a small space to set a potted plant or to drop your keys and mail when you walk in the house. Crafting a storage area in the hallway is a clever way to add dimension and depth to your interior design.

Building unique, space-saving storage solutions is a stylish way to decorate a custom home. At Up North Builders, our team loves what they do and takes pride in constructing designs that you will love, too. Our general contractors specialize in home remodeling and commercial construction.
