We know built-ins are very popular in this part of the world. But if you want to create a real Scandi home, that is not the way. We seldom see this in Scandinavia, only as wardrobes. Instead, use storage as decor. The shelf or basket that you would have likely have hidden in your closet is instead a work of art in its self. We all have small nick nacks we want to hide, put them in a basket and place on a shelf. There are plenty of woven or wooden baskets, even paper boxes from Ikea adds to the homely feel. Please avoid Toyogo plastic containers. See the difference in warmth and homely feel in the photos below.
Bookshelf at its best, open shelving
