North Shore Builders' Historically Inspired Green Homes Have Form and Function
Built-ins are not a new concept - the earliest examples of wall benches, settles, and aumbries (small cupboards in churches) date back to the Middle Ages. Originally built as architectural features, built-ins have evolved over the years into stand-alone pieces of furniture. With input from some of the top local interior designers, North Shore Builders has developed home plans that boast sensational built-ins, finishes and details; epitomizing the style and craftsmanship one would expect for a new home on the North Shore.
While North Shore Builders is known for building historically inspired Green homes, its built-ins and finishes create an interior that is both functional and attractive. “Many of our clients were seeking upgrades and high-quality finishes in their mudrooms. As mudrooms typically serve as the primary entrance for many families, creating built-ins that would stand the test of time, be easy to clean and also maintain their beauty, has become a priority for our new homes on the North Shore,” notes Therese Schaefer, Sales Manager for North Shore Builders. “Though function is key, the aesthetic of the home cannot be compromised to accommodate it. We strive to create built-ins that not only satisfy the homeowners, but also their taste.”
Whether homeowners are looking for an area that provides storage, an adequate space for technology or they want to create a prep area in a quaint Butler’s pantry, incorporating built-ins and decorative trim work can add form and function. With the esteemed team from North Shore Builders and their interior design partners, options for built-ins are endless. From rustic to regal, simple to chic designs – built-ins can transform a room from utilitarian to unique and add an element of luxury and attention to detail.
