Create a Large Dog Space or Whole Room If you’ve got multiple pets or one very large dog you might want to just go ahead and give them a designated large space or an entire room! It seems extravagant but if you’ve got the space, it can make it easier to keep the rest of your home organized and clean. It’s like having a man cave…except that it’s for your fur kid so you can skip the giant flat screen TV if you want!
DIY chaise sofa. This would work well for my spa room. Twin size mattresses with simple frames and furniture legs. Just add extra large pillows and lots of them. I love this whole style for upstairs loft idea!
The front door of this home opens directly into the living room, but a folding screen creates a functional foyer: http://www.bhg.com/decorating/small-spaces/strategies/space-solution-every-room/?socsrc=bhgpin051114makeyourownroom&page=5
