Virtually any room in your home could use hidden space. Why not add a cabinet that serves as a design element and functions as a storage solution? Take, for instance, this sideboard. How many uses can you think of for this piece of furniture?
- Media Center: You can easily store your DVDs and components safely inside this functional cabinet while your flat screen sits on top. Can't access your components with your remote control? No problem! Adding an infrared repeater allows access to those hidden electronics so they work correctly. You enjoy the concealed look of hidden electronics with full remote control functionality. You could also choose a cabinet with glass doors, allowing your remote direct line of sight for easy control. Are components too deep? Cutting a hole in the back of your piece will allow those deeper components to fit a shallow space while also giving them extra room to breathe.
- Play Room: Too many toys to hide? Placing baskets inside this sideboard will not only organize all loose toys but also allow you to maintain a classically clean look when needed.
- Extra Bedroom Storage: A dresser isn't the only piece of furniture that stores clothing. Shelving can be used for folded garments, additional bedding, or even your shoe collection. Choose a cabinet with solid doors if you instead camouflage your clutter.
- Bathroom Vanity: Unique buffets and sideboards make for impressive vanities. The way to achieve this is to measure your ideal vanity height, counter depth, and width and then go shopping. You can even have a granite slab countertop cut for a snug fit and either drop a sink in or choose an undermount sink. While this project will need a specialist to complete, the result will be the envy of the neighborhood.
