When designing and building a new home, one thing to consider is the inclusion of built-ins. They are architectural elements that can offer functionality, space savings and add that special something to the overall look and flow of the home. For this first feature, we are including examples of Visbeen Associates' designed built-ins for the main living spaces - kitchen/eating areas, living rooms and bedrooms.
