Default 33 Amazing Ideas That Will Make Your House Awesome


I really like #1, #6, #16, and I drool over #21! If I still had cats, I'd consider #30, also.

But I would NOT use that bathroom in #8. I'll take sponge baths and do my business in a bucket of kitty litter in preference to THAT!

No #8.
Definitely NO on #8.

But the rest would all be cool - and I really really really want #16

I think #1 is very cool but there would always be this little niggling fear of a crack.

#5 is neat, except for whoever does the house cleaning and has to sweep up all the sand. #6 is good but another definite NO NOT EVER vote for #8. Just don't even want to go there.

Love #10 and #14; #16 would be great if it came with a step ladder and I love #17 but then I'm a bookcase slut. I love #22 and #23; and both the staircase slides would make visiting Grandma a big hit with the GK's.

I love the ones for cats. Misty would have a blast. I'd love to have a cat door going to an outside room so she could be outside but in something to keep her safe.

I need a money fairy to make these dreams come true.
There are always dozens of reasons why something "can't" be done. That's no excuse in my book. If you want it bad enough, you find a way. That's how life works for grown ups. -- Booger
