How to Turn An Unused Space Into Something Useful

before-after-renovation-1

Haven’t you craved for a room in which you can do all of your work or have a designated place for your kid to play, but your home doesn’t have the space for it? The owners of the townhouse you see in the photo had an amazing idea! They’ve created an extra place for play or office stuff by using the ceiling space above their entrance door. This great example of how you can make use of every inch of your home can be furnished with a nice cabinet, desk and plenty of toys. The workload is substantial, with all the installing of the floors, support beans and railing, but the paintjob is in place making it much easier than a complete overhaul of a regular room. A few decorations in place and the creative corner is now completed. Check out all of the pictures with the finished result. It looks truly amazing and inspiring! Before & After !!!!

    Hi, I just came across your site, and saw this particular post about the unused space over the stairwell. The idea was brilliant and my wife and I want to do something similar in our home. The photos provide a very basic understanding of what was done. but it would be very helpful to see additional photos of the build in progress, if there are any. If the person who posted the oriiginal pics wouldn’t mind, could they email me any additional photos that were taken during the build?

    Thanks again for posting the idea!

    Regards,
    Keith

  • So just please give me your ideas free of charge because I’m too cheap as well. I’m another person who wants a Ferrari on a yugo budget.

  • I am a remodeling contractor with several decades experience, this is a extremely dangerous design and it is irresponsible to post this on the internet.

      Your “translation” is pretty dumb. It’s not his post, he is a professional who simply stated that this type of design is dangerous. He isn’t trolling for business, he is trying to keep people safe.

    How do you think upstairs floors are made? You don’t see brackets holding it up front the ground floor🤦‍♀️

    You did great! You do not need a builder for this simple project, or “architect”. Lmao Your not building a mega structure, good job gentlemen. Any dad with beer and a drill (and level) should be able to do this. Stop hating on the guy!!
