The article offers tips on creating practical built-in storage spaces. For instance, a curio cabinet can fill up a blank wall and, with proper lighting, can add some drama to a room. It is suggested that for angled spaces like bay windows, a bench with a hinged top will work well to provide an area for relaxation as well as for additional storage. An entertainment center can work better when custom-built to suit the measurements of the electronic appliances it will hold.
