Not enough room for everything? We know the feeling. Take a look at these inspirational, FUNctional storage ideas that we've come across for every home!







 This small cabinet has a drawer that stores Fido's food and water - close it when you need the extra space! You can also use the other drawers for storing extra food, treats, toys, & leashes! 








Can you smell Fluffy's litter box from the front door? Or are you always getting the litter stuck to your feet? Fix both problems with this discreet cabinet. With a small door for Fluffy and a larger door for cleaning out the litter box, it contains everything in one place and can double for a side table. I definitely need this one!



How many times have you walked out the door to go to a meeting or a grocery shopping and your phone is dead? Laptop at 13%? This creative innovation gives you a charging station in your cabinet drawer! Always leave fully charged with this cabinet modification.

Check out this jewel. Instead of wasting floor space with trash cans/recycling cans (which can leave the room smelling like last night's pizza), add a trash can pull-out to your cabinet! Voila! Cleaner looking & cleaner smelling room!

Reusing to Redesign

Tired of looking at the same ol' same ol' in your home? Me too! But sadly, redesigning the entire house is way out of budget! Here are some tips to help redesign your home without breaking the bank:

1. Rearrange the furniture
Sometimes you can rearrange the furniture that you have in each room to make the space feel new again. However, it can sometimes surprise you to see what you can do by pulling from throughout the house. For instance, take a chair from your living room and swap it with one from a bedroom or game room. 


2. Refinish items
Instead of buying new furniture or knick knacks, try refinishing or painting them. You can bring an old 90's frame up to date with a simple coat of paint! Plus, painting some of your decor will bring consistency to your room. 


3. Change out your Pictures
Sometimes the tiniest details can bring new life to a room. Experiment with changing out pictures in your picture frames, or changing up your wall art. If you want to get crafty, you can always make your own art out of other household items, or try your luck at a flea market for some unique, inexpensive art. 

4. Paint
Paint is cheap and can make a big difference. Try painting just one wall or the whole room to give your space a whole new feel!
