Using Cabinetry as Furniture for the Entire House


Cabinetry used in living room.

Designing your house can become difficult and overwhelming when trying to figure out how to compliment each room with one another. Most go directly to an interior designer without knowing that a kitchen designer can help them with the majority of the work.

Our designers at Columbia Kitchens will be able to assist with designs for all rooms of the house. This is because wherever furniture is needed, cabinets can be used. Cabinets are made of wood just as furniture is, and are used in all rooms of the house, not just for kitchens and baths. This means that all rooms of the house can include cabinetry for all types of storage. It is less than custom furniture, and you will be able to see each room in 3D perspective before making your purchase.

Bar area cabinetry.

Besides kitchen and baths, the top 6 rooms/areas that clients have chosen to include cabinetry in are:

The Bar Area

Incorporating a bar area in the home is very common nowadays. Most homeowners like to store and hide alcohol away in a designated area for many reasons. It is used for display purposes, as well as entertaining.  Large bars, for larger entertaining purposes, are typically designed to go in the basement area. However, you can plan for your bar to go in the dining room or across from the kitchen area, as others have done. No matter what room you decide, it will provide storage, display, and flair to any home.

The Living Room

Almost every living room has an entertainment center in it. You will typically find a stand for the lamp or pictures as well. These are all standard options using cabinetry. If you need a place to store the flat screen, DVD/blue ray player, stereo and other entertainment devices, order an entertainment center with open shelving for all of your best display items and pictures to be displayed.

The Bedrooms

Dressers are a must for any bedroom, just as much as closets and night stands. In every bedroom, there needs to be an area for clothes storage and personal items such as jewelry. This can all be done using cabinetry, which one of our professional staff will show you using our design program. This helps in planning out the best use of the space, and shows how the area will look ahead of time.


Use cabinetry to create an area to organize and store your coats, games, and shoes. Instead of leaving the shoes at the front door, you could design an area with cubby slots to have them easily accessible, or hide them away in a cabinet or drawer. Your coats could be organized to hang above the shoes and game area. You can also include a place to sit while you are taking off or putting on your shoes.

The Laundry Area

Besides adding in a countertop to fold the clothes, you will need to include cabinets to store dirty clothes, detergents and other items affiliated with the area.  This is also a great place to store pet needs, sports equipment, or infrequently used kitchen items.

The Office

With the rising cost of fuel, it is a great idea to work from home and a home office is a perfect place to add extra cabinets.  Whether it is used for work, kid’s homework, family businesses, or just entertainment, a computer is a major part of the home and having a designated space makes the whole home more efficient.  Cabinets can be used to create desks, book shelves, and additional storage for office supplies.
