Storage is something we all seem to need more of these days. Why not find a way to add it to your home while making it visually appealing at the same time? Built-in cabinetry is extremely customizable and adds a high-end look to any room. Cabinetry can be creatively designed in any style or configuration- the possibilities are endless! Built-in millwork enables the addition of plenty of storage without adding bulky standalone pieces. This is especially important if you have a small space or an awkward layout that would not allow for the use of typical furniture. You can turn what could be an otherwise unusable nook into something specifically designed to suit your particular storage needs.
This client’s dining room utilizes the custom built-in by adding extra seating in a room that will truly benefit from it during the Holidays. Just add a long table in front of the bench-style window seat to maximize the number of guests in a small dining space. Plus, it has the added benefit of being a fun place to lounge while enjoying the view during the rest of the year.
Have an empty nook in front of a window? Add a built-in window seat for enjoying a pleasant book and cup of tea every morning. Not only does this space look visually beautiful, but it provides a cozy space for a favorite activity while maximizing an empty alcove.
Creating a custom dividing wall is another great way to enhance your home. While providing room definition between the living and dining spaces, this cabinet also serves to give the client valuable storage space for all their tableware needs. Glass front doors allow for the display of china and other wonderful collectables.
Make even that small awkward nook useful by adding storage space in a bathroom. Custom built-ins can provide you much needed linen storage especially when space is limited. Customize it to your needs- do you want a place to display treasures on open shelving? Or maybe you want to be able to hide all those bathroom necessities behind a cabinet door? There are so many unique and creative options available!

Like most of the world at this moment, all of us at TMS Architects and Interiors are working from home to stop the spread of COVID-19. This means that many of us needed to improvise and put together home offices and workspaces at the drop of a hat. Many of us have converted guest bedrooms, basements, kitchen tables, and cobbled together spaces for ourselves in various corners of our houses while navigating all of the other challenges that the lockdown has brought.
Every April the design team here at TMS makes an annual pilgrimage to the High Point Market – the interior design industry’s biggest trade show. High Point Market, which is open every six months, draws in more than 75,000 designers, architects, and industry professionals. The market’s current demographics are seriously impressive with 180 buildings, 12 million square feet of showrooms and the presence of 2000+ vendors. Each market is bigger than the next! After taking some much-needed time to process all that we saw this year, here are some of our favorite design trends seen at Spring 2019 High Point Market…
A beach cottage offers an escape from reality. It’s a place for quality time spent with loved ones, fun in the sun, and relaxation. Of course, the design of such a place should enhance the experience, creating a soothing sanctuary away from the demands of everyday life. That’s exactly what we did when we transformed the master bathroom of a 1950s beach cottage into an open, contemporary, and all-around luxurious retreat.
