Built Ins for Showcasing your Stuff

What do you think of the homeowner's collection of items as grouped together?

Re: Built Ins for Showcasing your Stuff

The whole room makes me dizzy.  Looking into the next room only adds to the chaos.  Also, how would anyone be able to comfortably watch the television where it is located?  Looking over their shoulder? 

 

Not for me.

IMO it's too much, too dark, the shelf divisions are too busy with the variety of artifacts, and the display lacks a focal point(s). With those shelf divisions, I think common items or common shapes or only 1-2 colors  would create a better visual.

Uh, Nope.  I LOVE built in Shelving  but those cubbies look like permanent  Clutter cubes.  The wet bar is okay for the set up but the T.V. is in an odd place.

There is nothing that I like about this room, and the built-in just looks cluttered.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

Sadly, there is nothing attractive or comfortable about this room. Call Goodwill and donate everything and begin again with a respectible carpenter!

The room and the built in shelving have possibilities but I don't like anything about this busy, mash-up type decor.

Holy cow - that mirror must go! It's the only thing I see - and that sees me!!!! Yeah, tv's not in the right place at all. What's in the shelving seems to be okay, both sides seem to be balanced.

The wall unit on the left is a wet bar.......I think I would have decorated that side differently.......Ya know, BOOZE bottles........or "maybe" a snack bar.......

Kinda looks to me like a gift shop.   The mirror is to look for shoplifters.
