Custom Living Room Shelving and Cabinetry
At Tharp Custom Cabinets, we believe that every home should fit the family who inhabits it. We can help you take any house and create your family’s home. When it comes to custom cabinetry, shelving, drawers, and built-in entertainment centers, desks, and bars, your imagination is the only limitation! View our online galleries for inspiration and set up a consultation with one of our designers to create a custom experience for you.
Upgrade Your Living Room
The living room is home to some of the largest furniture in your house including luxurious couches for lounging, tables for gathering around, and televisions for catching the big game. With all of the furniture and friends and family gathering together, saving space is always a great idea. Some custom home design ideas include installing built-in shelves for your entertainment center or storage, a built-in desk, and a built-in wet bar. Whether you prefer a small bookcase with doors to store media or your family demands ceiling to floor shelving on an entire wall, we can create a beautifully tailored piece for you, fireplace included.
Entryway Storage and Seating
Welcome your family and guests while keeping outerwear accessible and organized with a custom-built entryway coat rack and shelf option, complete with storage shelves and a bench. If you already have a coat closet, we can install custom shelves and drawers to keep everything organized and your front entryway clear. View our gallery to see previous projects we have completed.
Optimize Dens and Rec Rooms
For most families, the den or rec room is for gathering, playing games, and hobbies. With so many activities going on in these spaces in the house, messes can spiral out of control without the right organization. Create storage space for all of your family’s books, games, and toys when you have custom cabinetry and shelving installed. Whether you’ve created a playroom for your kids, a sitting area for your book club, or a man cave, the talented cabinet makers at Tharp Custom Cabinetry can optimize your space and provide comfort in your home.

Reasons to Invest in Custom Living Room Shelving
If your home is like most American homes, your living room is where your family spends the majority of their time. Whether you enjoy family game nights, entertaining guests, or relaxing and binge-watching your favorite series, your living room is the grand room for living life together. Along with comfortable oversized couches you can sink into, at Tharp Custom Cabinetry, we believe that every living room should feature custom built-in shelving and cabinets to store all of your entertainment belongings.
Built-in shelving prevents furniture from being bumped or knocked over and can help keep things much cleaner. By adding cabinet doors to shelving options, you can ensure your items stay neatly tucked and dust-free, and you can eliminate unsightly cords from showing.

The Ultimate Luxury Entertainment Room Must-Haves
At Tharp Custom Cabinetry, we are no stranger to custom-built luxury. For those homeowners who want to add style and comfort, we can build to suit. Entertainment rooms are some of the most fun rooms to custom design and, second to kitchens, get the most use in the home. Here are just a few of the entertainment room must-haves we’ve helped create over the years that we think every homeowner can appreciate.
Built-In Entertainment Center
A built-in entertainment center is a perfect solution for saving space and keeping things organized. Custom building the entertainment center allows it to be tailored to your family’s interests. Avoid wasted space and crowded shelves when you have the right spacing. Add some cabinets to store games, gaming stations, and sound machines. Consider building in the surround sound and lighting systems into your entertainment center, and don’t forget to account for power supply!
Are you a family that enjoys family game night, doing puzzles, or hosting game night at your house? A game closet is a perfect hideaway to keep all of your board games, cards, props, and puzzles contained, organized, and readily available. Custom shelving allows you to store everything in its own place, ready to pull out and play.
Beverage and Snack Station
We believe you cannot properly entertain without proving drinks and snacks. Whether it is a family movie night or a slumber party for your kid’s entire class, you cannot go wrong with a custom snack station. If your entertainment room is in close proximity to the kitchen, consider keeping the snack station limited to a few cabinets and a beverage fridge. If you use the space often and it is located on a different floor than the kitchen, consider one of our custom wet bar ideas.
3 Ways to Optimize Your Living Room
We are sure that your living room is the featured room of your home and has undoubtedly had some special attention paid to it. At Tharp Custom Cabinetry, we have been designing, fabricating, and installing custom cabinets and shelving in homes on the Front Range for decades. We have helped optimize our fair share of living rooms and we are excited to pass along some of our favorite ideas to increase home value, comfort, and luxury.
Install a Fireplace
If your living room doesn’t already feature a fireplace, we can’t think of a better way to add comfort and elegance to the space. Our favorites are double-sided fireplaces with a custom mantle and shelving built around the fireplace. With the right set-up, your built-in fireplace can either stand out as the featured image or be tucked in among floor-to-ceiling shelving to hold your stunning book collection.
Upgrade Storage Options With Custom Cabinetry
Custom cabinets are a great way to provide organization and luxury to any room in the home, especially the living room. Built-in cabinetry is a great way to customize an entertainment center and under-cabinets can be used to create storage and a seating option in front of the windows. Use custom shelving and cabinetry to create a snack center or an island in the center of the living room to hold games and movies.
Divide the Space
Don’t get us wrong, we love open floor plans, but we also love distinct rooms and intentional spacing. Rather than building a wall to create separate rooms, another idea is using custom cabinetry to create double-sided hip-height storage that creates distinction for the space as well as offers storage for blankets, games, and entertainment supplies.
