Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.
