Built-Ins Boost Storage for Tampa Custom Homes

Home Builder with Javic Homes

By Missi McCombs

From making use of an awkward space to defining a room, built-ins add warmth, color and style to any room in your home. But, equally as important as style, built-ins are functional! They add value, end clutter, and answer the never-ending call for more storage space. So, if you aren’t in the market for a custom home you can take another look at the space beneath your stairs, the entryway, bedrooms, and just about every other room in your home. Chances are, there’s a way to make better use of the space. To offer up some inspiration, here are a few ideas to get your creativity flowing:

As a new home builder Tampa, you might be surprised to find that the most requested built-in is a Mud Room! No, we aren’t storing snow boots…but a well-designed mudroom eliminates clutter from the kitchen counters and provides an organized way to store backpacks and sports equipment.


Family computer areas are also a big plus for a shared work area. As a parent you can organize the family calendar and pay bills. And, watch over your children during computer time. This example shows a great way of maximizing space by using the seldom used area beneath the stairs. Another work-oriented built-in option is a homework nook. Read our past blog to learn how to create a personalized area for your children to study and complete their homework.

Built-ins can also provide display space for art and other collectibles, while eliminating the need for bulky bookshelves. This type of built-in works great in family rooms, bedrooms, and even bathrooms. Built-in shelving and cabinets can even surround a garden tub, providing extra space for storing towels, candles and other bath necessities.


Window seats add comfort to your home by creating cozy places to relax, adding extra seating in a bedroom, and can also add extra storage for seldom used items. This window seat eliminates the need for a reading chair, while also providing a picturesque view.

Tampa new home builders can utilize built-ins in just about every room of the house, in any style of home. These small and simple additions are a stylish and practical way to add organization to your home and allow you to maximize your space.
