If your home is starting to look a little tired, maybe you should think about ideas to remodel some of the rooms to give them a new look? It doesn’t matter if your home is a new build or an older house, there are plenty of ideas that you can use.
Here are some clever remodeling suggestions that you can use in your home to give it a new lease of life.
Lower your Living Room
It might sound a little expensive, but lowering an area of your living room will give you’re the appearance of space and make it look cozy. The great idea is to have a lowered section as a conversation pit. By lowering an area and fitting comfy chairs around the edge, you have a nice space for talking or even playing games. As this may involve a lot of underfloor work, you might need to consult a structural engineer to take a look before proceeding.
These are a great idea if you only have a small amount of free space to use. It is ideal for the loft or attic, but it can also be used in a small box room. The idea is to cover the floor of the area with large cushions or a fitted sofa so that the whole space is soft and comfortable. You can then add cushions on top to add extra comfort.
The space can be used for anything from watching television to sleeping or just as a quiet room to read.
Storage Under the Stairs
When you think about storage under the stairs, you might have the image of a dark cupboard with a dull light and cobwebs. It doesn’t have to be like that; there are many options you can use to make the space useful. You can build bookcases underneath, or you can fit it with wine racks to keep your favorite bottles handy.
If you have enough space, you can even use it as a small book nook to enjoy your latest novel.
Double Dish Washers
It might sound like an extravagance, but having two dishwashers can save you a lot of time, especially if you have a big family or entertain a lot. It can be easy to do if you are remodeling the kitchen, as you can set aside space while you are designing.
You can get two slimline dishwashers if space is at a premium, or you some companies are now selling two drawer dishwashers that wash independently.
Whatever room you are proposing to remodel, take a look and see if there are any ways you can use the extra space or change the purpose of the room itself. With clever use of hidden cupboards and beds, you can have a room that can be used for many things instead of just one. All it takes is a little imagination and planning to create a room that others will be talking about for some time to come.
