Remodeling or renovating your home and looking for ideas? Well, you’re in luck. Today, we’re showcasing some of the cleverest ideas in home renovation. Many of these are just minor tweaks but can have a significant impact on the mood and feel of a room.
One idea is to lower the living room.
Drop it down by a couple of feet, add some stairs, and turn it into a conversation pit. This can make the area feel cosier, while also adding the illusion of space. At the same time, the pit is enclosed, so it encourages more actual conversation, rather than staring at the TV.
Turn the attic into a pillow room.
The attic is either used as space or as storage. Change that by covering the entire ground with pillows and sleeping surfaces. It makes for a great guest room or a place for people to hang out. Put a TV on one wall, and you can use it for family movie nights.
The stairs can be perfect for storage.
Stairs are practical, but with the right materials, you don’t need to have them eat up so much space. Turn what’s under them into storage space or a bookcase. You free up more room in your home. I’ve seen that same area transformed into a wine rack or shoe rack sometimes, too.
Invest in a double-drawer dishwasher.
These things are ideal for homes or kitchens with minimal space. They’re quirky and fun and save space. Manufacturers are realising this too since they’re making more and more of them.
Install in-wall pest control.
You have no idea how great these can be. If you’re doing a remodel, you’ll probably be having walls taken down anyway. Install some pest control choices and add that extra level of peace of mind.
Finally, think about installing garbage chutes in the kitchen.
These can save you a lot of time. Install chutes and containers at the other end, and just remember which chute goes where.
