Add Value In Your Home With Built In Cabinets
Built in cabinets can be a big enhancement to a dining room, living room, or just about any room in your home. Built in cabinets can add value to your home, both in resale price and their day-to-day usefulness. Most homes have small nooks or unused spaces that are perfect for built in cabinets. Builders often add these small features to homes to enhance the value of a space. You may have a space that would be perfect for a small built-in cabinet. Building your own cabinet is pretty easy and within the scope of do-it-yourselfer projects. It is also something that a good handyman or carpenter should be able to create quickly and for a reasonable price.
A basic built-in cabinet typically will have a basic design with simple slab doors (flat doors with no panels or moulding) and a painted finish. Common materials include plywood with smooth, sanded exposed faces for the body of the cabinet and for shelves, 1″ thick boards for a face frame and shelf supports, hinges and knobs. You can build a cabinet and then move it to its final location, but built in cabinets are often built in place and take advantage of the structural support of existing walls.
