#2 Create a book nook under your stairs


In true Harry Potter style, turn the cupboard under your stairs into a place where you can escape from the everyday hassles of life. If your foundations permit, take out the space underneath your stairs and turn it into a comfy, warm reading area.

#4 Sun roofs aren’t just for cars


Some homes feature some rather pleasant skylights, but have you every considered expanding them further? In the right room, a sun roof can give you incredible lighting, as well as a place to stargaze at night in the comfort of your own home.

#5 Don’t forget about your pups!


When remodelling your home, include something for the dogs! Whether it be an indoor kennel or a doggy shower in the garage, there are heaps of ways to return your furry friend’s unconditional love!

#6 Create the perfect spa


There’s the excitement you get from installing a bathtub, and then there’s the excitement you get from installing a spa bath in your backyard. Depending on how you’ve got your backyard decked out, the styles of spas are endless. Opt for a natural, sunken tub if you boast a garden paradise, or a chic stone design to complement your manicured hedges and masoned pathways.
