Renovation In A Whole New Way

If you know your home needs some updates, but you haven’t worked on renovations before, you might not even know where to start. You want your home to be your own and that means incorporating unique elements that show off your personality. If you are looking for something that is completely your own, consider one of these unique ideas for your home renovation.

Idea 1: Use The Stairs For Shelving

If your stairs have a wall beneath them, consider knocking that wall out and installing shelving instead. The open look gives you more storage and a unique appeal. You can place books on those shelves for a hidden library or statues and other items. Using this area is smart for out-of-the-way storage and brings a unique look to the hallway as well.

Idea 2: Consider Baseboard Drawers

Is there ever enough space in the kitchen? But there is only so much room for more storage, right? Make the most of the space you have by installing baseboard drawers into the kitchen. Those baseboards are usually just taking up space, but if you make them into drawers, you will have storage space for pans and other items that won’t clutter the area.

Idea 3: Streamline Trash And Recycling

Have you ever had or seen a laundry shoot? It is a convenient way for the people on the second story to get their laundry to the basement where the washer and dryer are. Why not incorporate that idea into trash and recycling? No one enjoys having to take the trash out, right? So install a trash and recycling shoot in the kitchen so it can head right to the garage for storage until you drag it to the curb. The chutes can have a stylish look that fits into the look of your kitchen.

Idea 4: Create Platform Storage

You may think that a platform is simply a style look in a room, but you can use the platform as a way to store your things and increase the space of a room. Consider installing one in the guest room, for example, so the room is clean and orderly for guests, but still, a great place to store things. You can put drawers beneath the platform or even hinged lids that open up for extra storage.

Idea 5: Create Your Own Renovation Ideas

When you are working on home renovations, the decisions are ultimately all yours. You are the one who has to love the results you end up with. The sky’s the limit when it comes to renovations. You can do something standard like upgrading your kitchen or bathroom or you can do something more unique like adding a platform for storage to a room. Whatever you do, make sure it enhances the functionality and aesthetics of your home in a way that helps your level of comfort. Whether you are looking for something unique or not, the professionals at O&R Building can help with the process from start to finish.
