Affordable Remodeling Ideas
Lowered living room
Lower the height of your living room, maybe three to four steps lower than the dining room, to create a conversation pit. Make this place as comfortable as possible with the right furniture. This will make it a social gathering hub for your family and friends. Also, this bi-level front room will give a more spacious and comfortable feel to your home.
Convert an attic nook to a movie room
Attic nooks, especially rectangular ones, are a great place for a movie room. Install a TV, and add some comfortable mattresses and pillows to have a slumber-party or a family movie night.
Use the space under your stairs
The area under your stairs may be too awkward for any piece of furniture. However, it’s a great place for a book shelf. You can convert the entire area into a shelf or you can simply create shelves behind every stair. Besides books, you can also use it to store CDs, DVDs, mugs, trophies, alcohol, and just about anything else. It can even be a great way to showcase your hobbies and skills.
Another good way is to create a storage box under each stair to give you some extra space to store your things.
Make a treehouse
If you’re planning a huge remodel, you can consider adding a treehouse to your backyard or lawn. This will make for a great entertainment spot as the kids can run and play in the treehouse while adults get to catch up in the space below. It can also double up as a guesthouse to make your guests feel extra special. Hammocks, lights, and basic wood furniture is sure to add to the appeal of the treehouse.
Having a proper pest-control system is vital to prevent pests, rodents, and other such creatures from invading your home. While remodeling, and putting together your remodeling ideas, consider installing a pest-tube in the walls. This way, all that the exterminator has to do is to add pesticides at one end of the tube. Should you need this tube, your everyday activities don’t have to be disturbed every time the exterminator comes to your home.
Increase storage space with baseboard drawers
Baseboard drawers are a great way to add some extra storage space to your home. They can be particular handy in kitchens and bathrooms to store your large and relatively less-used items and utensils.
Magnetic walls give more flexibility
Magnetic walls give you a greater degree of flexibility to hang a range of different things, including shelves and even TVs. So, you can have more storage just in the areas you want.
Stretch a hammock across your ceiling
If you have a really high ceiling, then it makes sense to string a hammock across it for some extra relaxation. Can you think of a better way to read a book?
