Right angles can get a bit boring, so consider updating a non-load bearing wall to a more dramatic shape that can help bring about creativity and movement in your home. Usually reserved for art galleries or public buildings, curved walls are known for instantly adding visual interest and being the perfect canvas for framed art. With the aid of a flexible metal track and curved drywall, framing a curved wall can take less than an day and does not require any special tools to put together.
If the construction of a traditional outdoor deck won’t work for your space, the next best option for a elevated outdoor area is a floating deck. Rather than drilling into the ground with a heavy-duty auger drill, the floating desk is constructed with manufactured deck blocks, which give the deck both it’s height and strength. Those few inches off the ground won’t seem like much, but it will always guarantee you the best spot in the whole backyard.
Sunken Alcove Bed
Cramped living quarters may have you wondering how to make your square footage pull double duty. Well, look no further! The sunken alcove bed has a comfy compartment to curl up in, plenty of storage, and when closed.. a sleek, tidy look. To help save on costs, you can build your own sunken alcove bed with inexpensive materials like plywood and MDF.
