Allen's Custom Built-InsSeptember brings big changes for many families with the return of school. Is your home ready to handle all the backpacks, shoes, outerwear, papers, lunch boxes and laundry that come with sending the kids back to their classrooms? Allen’s Custom Built-Ins can create what you need to survive this school year (and many years to come).

Entryway “lockers” are very trendy these days but for good reason: they offer lots of style and even more storage options. You can build a space for each person in your family so they can easily put away backpacks, coats, boots and other items in their very own space. Alternatively, a wall of hooks with cubbies above and a built-in storage bench below offers lots of space for everyone to get in and out the door. Either way, you’ll have, as they say, a place for everything and everything in its place.

Homework abounds no matter what age your students are. A dedicated, built-in space for homework, whether it’s in the office, den or your child’s bedroom, will provide lots of room for that homework to get done – without cluttering up your kitchen table or island with papers, books, binders and a laptop. If you’re thinking that built-ins are too expensive for your child’s bedroom, think again. Built-ins actually appreciate and add value to your home over time. Plus, with the various design options that Allen’s has available, whatever you create will grow right along with your child.

Built-ins in your bathroom will make the morning routine a little less hectic and a lot more organized. Recessed shelves work well for storing bathroom items for everyone in your family without taking up space. Another option is floating cabinetry; it creates an abundance of space for drawers.
