I am always looking for ways to create more storage or to better organize my house. Lately, I noticed that I could really use a medicine cabinet, but I didn’t want just any old cabinet.

After several hours of easy, although messy work, I finally got what I wanted. This post will show you how to make and install a medicine cabinet into your wall space.

One of the things I find that I often do is to look through a wall rather than at it. That is, every time I see a blank wall, I ask myself, “what can I do inside that wall?” I guess because I am a space hog, I hate to ignore those 4-6 inches of space that are just sitting there being wasted.

(i.e. hooks for each person, easy to clean flooring, etc.) Generally, all these considerations are designed around children and/or pets. So, the one thing that you may have not incorporated into your plan is a keys and mail center. However, these home drop zone ideas can help you with that!
Dog Space Ideas
If you have a dog, then you probably know how important it is for them to have their very own space. Usually, we look to provide them with a spot to sleep, or we need a temporary safety area. Most dogs, by nature, prefer their private space to be semi secluded. Probably because it provides them with a cavernous feel.
In the wild, a dog would look for caves or some other similar habitat to ensure safety. Even dogs that are used to bedding up with their owners will often paw at blankets or pillows, in a subconscious attempt to hollow out a hiding spot. Whether you prefer bedding that has open access or you need a closed crate, these dog space ideas are sure to inspire.
