Built-in bookshelves, with their visual heft and custom touches, are the ultimate luxury for the organizing-obsessed—especially if you`re renting and can only dream of such things. However, even if you do own your own place, they can often be prohibitively expensive to build. (And then there`s the matter of deciding where they should go . . . forever.)
With its tall silhouette, narrow upper window, and blank face, this house in the Auckland suburb of Waterview could almost be a utility building, were it not covered in cedar weatherboards.
Pair shelves with a bigger piece. Have an empty nook that you`re unsure how to approach? Bring in a floating console and top it with a few minimalist floating shelves. Wedged in between two walls, the setup looks meant-to-be.
