Your idea can apply to any of these rooms


Constraints to consider:

  • Each room has 150-200 square feet of total space
  • It’s unlikely moving or tearing down walls will be possible due to space and cost constraints.

Recent redesign successes:

  • Installed USB ports in the electrical outlets for easier phone-charging
  • Painted walls
  • Refinished furniture.
