Fortunately, you do not have to worry about making any drastic changes to get the job done. There are ways to make cramped homes feel less like the walls are closing in and more accommodating. Here are just a few stress-free methods to follow along with!
Giving your bathroom the royal treatment
While a cramped living space might not be something you can help, it does not mean that you cannot give yourself the best treatment.

The summer is the perfect time to take on a home renovation project. The days are long, and inspiration is available at every turn. This summer, why not channel your inner child and do something that stands out from the crowd!
Here are some fresh and unique home renovation DIY ideas for you to take on this summer.
Upgrade Your Fireplace
Dated fireplaces often get overlooked or forgotten. Traditional red brick brings back memories of shag carpet and wood paneling that many homeowners would rather forget. However, this space has tons of untapped potential for creativity when doing home renovations.
Swap out your old brick for some shale or stone for a timeless, earthy look or install some chic marbled ceramic tile for a luxury feel on a budget. If you’ve used that part of your room for storing photo memorabilia, go and digitize those photos with the help of EverPresent to make them eternal, and clean out that space for a more modern look.
If your fireplace largely goes unused, you can give it a good scrub and place an array of candles inside for a romantic, moody centerpiece to the room. Alternatively, you can use it as a dog bed and pet nook for your pooch. Bring the look together with a custom painting over the mantle depicting your dog as royalty or something similar.
