Coastal Living Rooms with Built Ins

For a quality built in, it is best to use solid wood. For example, a high-quality cabinet-grade birch plywood and hard maple boards for shelving. You can work with an interior designer or go directly to a local woodworker to install a custom built in. 

For DIY built ins, there are plenty of videos on youtube and tutorials online to help you out. A simple way for a DIY custom built in is to combine quality bookcases, shelving and cabinet units and/or media center, then create the built in look with face frames and/or moldings, and baseboards if applicable.

For the living room, a full wall of built-ins that houses the television is a very popular way to create a beautiful focal point in the space. If you have a fireplace you can wall mount the TV above it as seen in this coastal living room design by Barclay Butera. For a room without a fireplace, use a cabinet unit instead, which could hold the TV.
