Surprise, surprise. You don’t need a tremendously high ceiling to build a loft. Just take cue from this opportunistic study room that manages to find room for a loft overhead. Note: some of you might need to get a permit for that!

“Do you even lift?” The answer is yes. With a gym at home, you’re lifting all day, and pumping those muscles. Now, you’ll have no reason not to stay trim and fit, and you’re on the road to becoming a true fitspo. What’s not to love?

Interior Designer: Lux Design
Location: Skyville @ Dawson
Cost of Renovation: $42,000

Guys, it’s the man cave of your dreams. Great for having your “bros” over for an all-nighter of shooting and other savageness while downing some beer. (Food for thought, ladies, if your man has a cave like this… does it give you free reign over the rest of the house?)


8. A Treasure Chest

This one’s for the hoarders of eclectic knick knacks and family heirlooms (or so you say). With space to grow a massive collection, just imagine entertaining guests with all the trinkets and curios you’ve brought back from your travels… or your parents.
