9 Unique Home Renovations You Probably Haven’t Thought Of

When it comes to improving your home, there are some pretty standard options, like updating your kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, or remodeling your bathroom. But if you’re looking for something a little more creative, we’re here to help. Here are some unique home renovations you probably haven’t thought of.

Under-the-Stairs Bookshelf

Use that space under your stairs for something practical and kind of artsy! Use the structure of the stairs themselves as built-in shelving for books and nicknacks. Or use it for an out-of-the-way but still easy-to-reach storage area. Or if you’re feeling a little Harry Potter, transform that space into a cozy little reading area or kids’ hideout.

Old Shed? New Workshop!

Store Stuff… Under the Floor?

Raise up your floor a bit and use the extra space underneath for storage! Even a foot or two is enough for a trapdoor-style storage area, but a few more feet and you might even be able to get in some drawers or a trundle bed.

Mudroom? Pet Spa!

Turn your mud or laundry room into a pet center with a pet shower, some built-in storage, and a feeding station. It’s not just a place for your pets; it’s a way for you to minimize messes, too!

Space-Saving Under-Cabinet Drawers

Instead of just sealing up the space under your cabinets with baseboard, why not give yourself some more storage space with a handy drawer?

Hammock/Loft in a Two-Story Ceiling
