Redesigning your home is one of the greatest benefits of homeownership. Rather than just buying a home, leaving it as is, and then eventually selling is the boring way to go, but redesigning your home in fun, creative, and original ways can be amazing.
Here are a few creative remodeling ideas that you can use in your home that will not only look great but will also save a significant amount of space in your home.
- Space Above Closet — Imagine having a bed or a workspace or both above your closet. That would open up so much more space around your home. Just install a sturdy wooden frame above your closet — you might have to take out a wall or two — and set up whatever you want. You can lower the closet if you want or if your ceiling is high enough you can just build right atop your closet.
- Building a Living Cube — One of the greatest ways to save space during your home renovation process is to install your own Living Cube. If you take the time to create a nice looking cube, you can have an aesthetically pleasing cube that also can act as an entertainment system, storage component, book shelf, closet, mini fridge, and just about anything else you decide to do.
- Take Advantage of the Space Under Your Stairs — Another great area of your home that usually goes untouched by homeowners is the space under the stairs. Rather than just leaving it empty, or keeping dirty laundry under there, take advantage of this space. Work with experienced contractors to install a beautiful bookshelf, a bedroom, a workspace, or anything else you’ve ever dreamed of having in your home.
- Lifted Floors for Storage — Creativity has no limits, so you can truly redesign just about anything in your home. If you’re looking to get more storage around your home, consider installing various drawers underneath items in your house. Lifting entire rooms can seem like you’re actually losing space, but if you lift the floor up enough to install storage drawers, you’ll be able to free up much more space than before.
It’s important to go into your home remodeling project with an actual plan and you should consult with professionals who really know what they’re doing, but don’t ever think you have to leave your home the way it is.
