Transform Your Home Office With Built-In Cabinets

Built-In cabinets can really transform your office space. Check out these stunning ideas for yourself! 


Tired of your Home Office? Built-in Cabinets just might work for you!  I’m grateful every day for my home office. I adore having my space to create, play, and learn in.

When we first bought our home over 10 years ago, I was happy to choose some office furniture that met my needs. I even got to squeeze some space for my books through the built-in bookshelves as shown in the above photo. They’re not cheap, but I was able to buy the furnishing at a reasonable price.”

I have lots of electronic equipment and needed lots of desk space. Plus, this office isn’t that big of a space. Also, I had to house a guest bed in here as well! We get company at least monthly, and I want them to be comfortable and have a space of their own.

As you can see in the below image, it’s a small space, (about 11×11) and I had to make it work. I have my red daybed, which I adore. It’s so comfortable and great for additional room for guests and while I love that red cabinet I know I can have more room with a built-in cabinet.

A built-in desk and hutch would surely solve so many storage issues for my office. Built-ins are great for small spaces too. Instead of having a chest of drawers that are in the way, this space would be so much roomier with some built-in cabinets.

Then, as you can see above, I have a beautiful chest of drawers that I use to store a lot of various items from socks to electronic equipment.  This piece of furniture has to go too! OK, so now for the make-over! I’m still in the process of working this out, but I think I want built-ins. I could easily find a nice desk and hutch, but I’m seriously considering this look!

I have a friend who designs home cabinetry  – he does this for his living. I spoke to him about creating a built-in for me, and he said it’s totally doable! And the price wasn’t so bad either. It helps to have friends in high places :)

Below, you will find some examples of the look and functionality I have in mind. While none of them are exactly what I vision, I feel these options are headed in the right direction.

I love the amount of space they packed into this unit above. And the lighting – wow.

Not exactly what I have in mind, but I do love the workspace.

example six
In the image above, this is more in line with my vision. I love the ambient lighting both high and low. I would need to expand this across the entire wall which would give me far more workspace  – ideal!

Here is another beauty! In the photo below, even a small office can benefit from some beautiful built-in cabinets. I could live with this with some tweaks. I think I would choose black as my final color – and possibly a granite counter-top!

I’m not sure of the ETA for this project. It’s on my radar for sure! Keep you all posted if this dream manages to come true!

  1. Carolann, these built-ins are gorgeous! I have a theory, storage is everything. It doesn’t seem that we need so much space sometimes as it does just practical places to keep what we use. Thanks for sharing.
