Home prices are high, inventories are shallow, and personal savings are rising, which is leading everyone to say 2018 is the year of remodeling. People are choosing to stay in their homes and elevate the space, rather than sell it and buy a new one. 

Built-in storage is a reflection of that—today’s designs demand less clutter without sacrificing space. It’s a real challenge, because storage itself takes up room, and so to have one without the other would initially seem paradoxical. Done right, built-in features can bridge the gap between saving space and creating storage. 

Here are a few examples from designers and remodelers in the know.
