Many aspects need to be considered when you install your own built in cupboard, of which the material and colour and cost is but a few to mention.  

Suffice it to say that the built in cupboard is an excellent way to make space in a room and utilize the room to its fullest potential.

With many built in cupboard manufacturers the norm is to build the cupboards by components, for lack of a better word.  This ensures that should a certain part be damaged, only that part needs replacement and not the unit as a whole, which is quite a nice feature.

Depending on the part of the house, built in cupboards is often made from melamine or veneered board or also timber. So the choice is unlimited and you are able to style your room the way you want it.

If you doubt that the DIY route is going to be fruitful, you can choose from a range of shop fitters and carpenters alike, to fit you built in cupboard professionally.  Of course with everything that is done by a professional, the cost rises significantly, so do keep in mind that your budget will be a slight bit higher.  Perhaps the fact that your budget is higher is not such a bad thing, if you consider the medical aid bill if you fall of the step ladder whilst trying to fit that last lost screw.
