Tired of cramping everything in one closet, or sleeping and working in the same room? Maybe your shoes need a separate room, they probably do if you are a shoe-fanatic like Carrie Bradshaw. If moving isn’t an option or if you don’t want to throw insane sums of money on new Ikea products, this clever project will give you some inspiration on how to remodel your home. Here are some ideas compiled by Artlovers.
1. Create a room addition above the foyer
Maybe you have friends from abroad who visit you often and you don’t want them sleeping on the couch. If you have a two-story foyer, you can create a new room as shown on Apartment Therapy.
2. Faux baseboard
If you are a crafty person Home Depot will teach you some great tricks on how to add height to your baseboard and make it exaggerated. It will add appeal and dress up the room.
3.Tiling cabinet floor under sink
Why not cover the surface of the cabinet under your sink with tiles. It will save it from all the products spilling, bottles dripping and water leaks. What a smart idea by Apartment Therapy, definitely would not have thought of it myself.
4. Drawers under sink
No matter how many drawers you have in your kitchen, it will never be enough. Especially if you have kids and you always find some of their toys mixed with the spoons. We all need these pull out drawers providing extra space.

5. Get your closet door a makeover
Hard work always pays off. You will not regret all those hours spent in upgrading your closet doors if they end up looking anything like these. This one was made by Rita from How Fantastic and we have to say it’s very impressive.
Just think of your old doors like blank canvases. Play with colors, patterns, add wood trim or add a second layer of trim for extra texture. You always wanted to have a French style door, now you can create one.
