Renovations or remodels to your current home can increase your overall home value and make your home more functional. Not all renovations need to be strictly functional and boring though, in fact, there are many unique renovation ideas for you to include in or around your home.
Our experts at Rosewood have worked on a variety of different projects in Utah homes Many renovations can be both visually appealing, functional, and enjoyable. These renovations below are unique and functional to include in any size home.
1- Hidden Bookshelf
Large bookshelves are a great place to store books, photo albums, or small decor. Elevating your bookshelf to include a hidden entrance to another room or reading area behind the shelf. Not only will this be an interesting talking point among guests, but it will also give you some privacy or hidden space to store important or valuable items. This hidden room can be relaxing, or strictly for storage purposes.
2- Stepping Drawer
For families with young kids, any kind of stepping stool or built-in steps is worth the price. Putting a section underneath your vanity in your bathroom or underneath the sink in the kitchen can improve dinner time and bedtime routines. These steps hide away when not in use, which eliminates tripping hazards while giving you a unique renovation. This small step will make a big difference in your home.
3- Magnetic Walls
Something unique and functional is a dedicated magnetic wall. Hanging art projects, making a giant calendar, or including magnetic shelving. A magnetic wall gives you lots of freedom and peace of mind about avoiding holes in your walls. This is a major selling point for potential buyers who have young kids.
A magnetic wall is also great for a home office. Store notes, keep a calendar handy, organize your thoughts, and more while working in the comfort of your home. Elevating an office space will also improve the value of your home when you look to resale.
4- Double Sided Fireplace
Adding more elegance to your home is a unique renovation that will give you cozy vibes and help you unwind after a long day. A wall between your bedroom and bathroom is a great place to include a small double-sided fireplace. A fireplace, electric or otherwise, will help to warm up the space and elevate the atmosphere. If you are looking for a unique renovation with multiple uses and benefits, a double-sided fireplace is the way to go.
5- Sunken Living Room
Your living room is one of the most important places in your home. A sunken living room can add some more privacy to your conversations, be separated from the other activities in the home, and create a cozy environment. A sunken part of the living room can be big enough to include a couple of sofas or just a loveseat. You can choose the square footage of the sunken part and the raised part of the living area.
6- Fridge Inside The Island
Optimizing your kitchen to be uber-functional is always a worthwhile investment. Another way to upgrade your kitchen is to include another fridge inside your kitchen island. This not only gives you more space to store food but also prevents you from having to leave your prep station to get new ingredients. A fridge section on your island will give you a leg up when hosting people or a unique space to keep snacks for kids.
7- Vertical Gardens
Houseplants are a great way to elevate your home and improve air quality, so if you want to take it to the next level, implement a vertical garden. Not only are they visually appealing, but they are also a great place to grow your favorite fruits or flowers indoors. Live your homestead and gardening dreams by making an irrigation system or air-improving plants in your garden. Improve your green thumb from the comfort of your home.
