conversation-pitAre you ready to step outside of the box when it comes to remodeling? If so, here are some clever remodeling hacks that will add to the originality and personality of your home.

Sunken Living Rooms

With a nod to the 60s and 70s, sunken living rooms are making a comeback. Also known as Conversation Pits, this renovation hack involves lowering a portion of your living room floor to make a cozy pit. Line it with sofa’s and an abundance of pillows, and you’ve got a great place to get together with family and friends.

A Special Spot For Spot

Creating a built-in nook for your favorite pet is a great way to express your love with a renovation hack. More and more remodeling projects are including a special spot for furry friends. Under the stairs is a perfect area to create an indoor dog house, complete with arched entry and even a mail slot for treats. You can also create a specialized, built-in nook near a window so your pet can enjoy the view.

Add A Treehouse

If you’re doing a new house build or an extensive remodel with Daniels Design and Remodeling, ask us about adding a custom treehouse to your property. The costs may be lower than you think. Another creative idea for an outdoor structure is a miniature replica of your house for your kids to use as a playhouse.

Create A Secret Room

Have you ever fantasized about having a secret room in your home? At the push of a button, shelving or a staircase would reveal itself to be a hidden door, opening into a private room within. When you’re already in the middle of a home renovation, it is the perfect time to talk to your contractor about installing the secret room of your childhood dreams.
