Built-in furnishings offer many advantages over freestanding furniture: They are generally less expensive to build than stand-alone furniture of the same type and size. They give you great latitude in designing the look and function of your interior spaces - you are not limited to designing around existing furniture pieces. And, because of the manner in which built-in furnishings are constructed, you can maximize the use of the most unusual spaces while creating an effective and aesthetically pleasing design solution. In this book, you'll see some of the finest examples of built-in furniture and cabinetry for nearly every room in the house. You'll be treated to a room-by-room survey of unique design solutions and strategies that you can use to add functional and delightful built-ins to your home.
