So if you’re stuck at home and you’re tired of binge-watching Netflix, why not work on your dream home? Here are a few quick home remodeling ideas to break up the monotony of life indoors, and they’re fun too!

Interior Shutters

An office nook is great for maximizing your space, plus you don’t need much, just a desk, a lamp, and some shelves. It’s possible you could even pop in a window, depending on the adjoining wall. Our favorite office nooks are hidden under arching stairwells. This is a fairly easy home remodeling project, and you’ll feel more organized too.

Whether it’s for the butterfly garden or the bedroom, there are some great tutorials on building your very own hanging bed.
