A very common way to add a doghouse indoors is to use the space under the stairs, which is indeed a good idea, but not everyone has the space. Instead, try this nightstand-house to keep your pooch close to you! It’s an awesome way to add a place for your pet that won’t be an eyesore.

This baseboard vacuum(A.K.A toe kick vacuum or automatic dustpan) is a home feature that can make your life a lot easier! Instead of having an actual vacuum that will take space in your storage, – and sometimes even make cleaning not so practical as we’d like it to be – get this genius baseboard vacuum installed.

It’s most commonly installed in:

  • Kitchens
  • Pantries
  • Mudrooms

Though you can find the best, most strategic places to install a baseboard vacuum in your own home.

A hidden kitchen space will come in super handy whenever you want to throw a dinner party and need to cook more food than usually. It gives you that extra space to work with and after you’re done, just clean it and push it back in the counter!

Even though it might come off as a more expensive project at first glance, it’ll be worth it since you’ll be able to eliminate the need of chairs and other extra seating and create more space in the living room. Oh, and there’s also the possibility to make a beautiful decor with pillows!

Replace Door Knobs

Now, if you want something really simple, this is the idea for you: replace old door knobs! It’s a part of your house that doesn’t really get the attention it should, but once you start noticing it, you realize just how much it adds in your home. So you can try something that really stands out, like the one above, or something simpler, but that’d still look different – such as an all-black doorknob.
