|We're planning a linen closet in a landing area (from the attic stairs), and two built-ins for the family room (adjacent room). |
So, consider it three, 15" deep built-ins.
Cabinetry style will be Shaker, with a wider rail, and inset drawers/cabinets. Maybe rich dark wood in linen closet, maybe some sort of gray.
Please offer feedback/comments on the current plans. The round sconces - were just something I picked in the Sketch-up 3-D warehouse. I think I'll need something really sleek to go with our Techlighting K-Hello's (in place, shown in final picture).
Family room built ins (from bottom to top):
Wicker baskets of some sort
What the room currently looks like. Sofa, rug, light, table will all be moved elsewhere. The little brown table - DH made in shop in High School and I make use of it all the time. That, may stay :)
|I think it will look great in your space, very cozy. I like the white in the room as you have it with the baskets and then the dark wood in the hall closet.|
|Quoting mjlb on another thread: |
"I think the linen closet proportions would be improved by increasing the height of the doors. Currently the piece is divided top/bottom in roughly equal parts, which is less pleasing, IMO. "
Here's a comparison with the taller upper cabinet doors. I think they do look better. Drawers are still 15" tall on the linen closet cabinet, and I think those will be fine.
With respect to color suggestions... Here are planned colors for the sofas I've ordered.
|Are the panels under the shelves by the sofa a flip down? If so, you can skip the slides entirely and line the inside of the flip down with formica type product and use them as your end tables. I think that would be easier to use than the slides....the slides, being stone, are heavy. Sort of like the cabinet on the right in the pic... |
|Those were drawers but I see what you mean with the suggestion of a flip down. Hmmm. |
Alternatively, it could look like a drawer, have a handle, and act sort of like this:
