2. Find a creative space for books–under the stairs

All that space underneath your stairs is so wasted– unless you decide to fill it with books.  It takes less space than a book shelf and gives your room a cozy feel.

3. Staircase storage space

Or, you could use that space for rolling drawers full of storage space.  Store coats, shoes, clothing, linens…whatever you want!

4. Up your space with a custom tree house

It doesn’t get much cooler than a tree house you could actually live in.  If you’re going to be remodeling your home anyway, consider adding a tree house or guest house.  It doesn’t cost as much as you think but it adds a ton of value to your home.

5. Get creative with counter space

Why settle for boring granite or marble countertops…when you could have something totally different and unique like this lovely wood?  Also, note the extra space for storing wine on the side of the island.

You’d never have to drill a hole in the wall again with magnetic paint.  You could hang things quickly and easily.  This is awesome!
