Home Design: Outside the Box

For this year’s Home Design guide, we asked readers to submit their best space-saving and storage ideas. The winner? Bobby Gignilliat, who found a new use for Ikea kitchen cabinets.

Gignilliat didn’t have enough storage space in his one-bedroom apartment on DC’s Capitol Hill, and after consulting with his architect sister, he came up with the idea to build the Ikea modular cabinets across one side of the living room. He topped the cabinets with kitchen countertops, creating not only extra storage, but also a seating space for visitors. Take a look at the finished product and read more about his project here.
