Semi Custom Cabinets—Use Them in Rooms Throughout the House for Prettiness and Polish

Semi custom cabinets: They’re not just for kitchens any more! In fact, built-in cabinetry seems to be quite a popular trend for all kinds of rooms, like these…

Semi custom cabinets in home offices

Using semi custom cabinets in the home office can yield gorgeous and useful results. If you have a home office, you know how hard it can be to keep the clutter at a bay, especially when work is extra busy. Built-in cabinets can give your home office a much tidier look compared to a room full of free-standing furniture. In addition, using semi custom cabinets gives your home office a professional look, which is helpful for getting you into a work mindset when you first walk through the door in the morning, and impressive if clients come to your home office.

Semi custom cabinets in mudrooms

Mudrooms are not big rooms yet they are expected to do a lot of heavy lifting, managing the family’s coats and footwear in addition to various and sundry other things (at least in our mudroom). And…they get dirty, hence the name “mudroom,” I guess. Using semi custom cabinets in the mudroom can greatly increase the efficiency of that small space, while keeping it tidy and neat looking at the same time.

Semi custom cabinets in quilt or craft rooms

I had not heard of a quilting room until I went on a holiday home tour two years ago and saw one. As someone who hopes to have more time for crafts and sewing in the future, I was intrigued, so I looked into the idea of craft rooms and learned they are growing in popularity. And semi custom cabinets are just the thing to make rooms like this highly functional! Only consider all of the supplies you have on hand if you’re a sewer, crafter or quilter. Now imagine having built-in cabinets that are lovely in appearance while providing a place to store all of those supplies, neatly out-of-sight and (we hope) well-organized.

Semi custom cabinets in the playroom

My kids didn’t have a playroom when young. Instead, our small house was the playroom and toys would be flung about by the end of the day, when they’d be picked up and put back into toy boxes or on to shelves. I can only imagine how nice it would be to have semi custom cabinets in a playroom for stowing those toys away, especially since it can make it very easy for the little ones to do some of the stowing on their own! As with the other rooms mentioned, the playroom can also benefit from the neat appearance of built-in cabinets.

Semi custom cabinets in the entertainment room

Perhaps this one goes without saying, but if you’re building a house that includes an entertainment room and you’re not yet thinking about using built-in cabinets, maybe think again. Check out all of the creative ideas people have pinned on Pinterest using semi custom cabinets as part of their entertainment rooms, to see how polished, pretty and efficient this can be.

In today’s homes that favor open concept living, using semi custom cabinets makes a lot of sense because these built-ins have a polished look yet offer an extremely efficient way to provide storage. If you’re building and remodeling your home and looking at cabinets for your kitchen, maybe take a look at some cabinets for your other rooms too.
