Really Cool Home Remodeling Ideas

I came across this article by written by Peggy Wang on the BuzzFeed Staff and I must admit…its’ really ‘cool!’  She lists 43 unique and ‘Cool’ remodeling ideas.  It’s a great, fun article with quite a few really custom and useful interior and exterior designs.   Some are really ‘out of the box’ thinking compared to traditional remodeling options.

Here are a group Peggy’s ideas I felt were standouts: enhanced-13793-1405531626-1

6.  Display your book collection under the stairs or even add a ‘wine cellar style’ wine cabinet under the stairs

11.  Make space for two dishwashers instead of one

16.  Maximize your space with baseboard drawers

17.  Consider building a hidden room

18.  Make some of your walls magnetic.  

20.  Add a multi-directional steam shower

24.  Put a ‘bar’ rail on your deck for extra outdoor eating room

31.  Add recessed hallway or basement lights along the baseboards

42. Cut out ‘overlooks’ for your second storyenhanced-buzz-15087-1388183167-9

Again, just a really fun read. Some of these ideas left me scratching my head because – they really make sense!  How could we not be doing these?
