Discover innovative ideas to unlock your home’s hidden potential.
Today, we’ll dive into the often-overlooked concept of hidden potential in the square footage of your home. While square footage is traditionally measured from the outside of the house, there are creative ways to reclaim and utilize spaces inside the walls that might otherwise go unnoticed.
In many homes, there are areas that seem to serve no real purpose or remain underutilized. One such example is the awkward space between two bedrooms. By recognizing this untapped potential, we embarked on a remodeling journey to transform it into something extraordinary.
To reclaim this space, we installed a Murphy door—a fantastic and space-saving piece of equipment. This innovative door, when closed, blends seamlessly with the bedroom wall, appearing as an ordinary wall panel. However, with a gentle push, it opens up to reveal a concealed storage area. The Murphy door was a game-changer, providing both functionality and aesthetics.

While this project was rewarding, it did come with its challenges, especially during the DIY installation process. But the end result was well worth it. Now, we have a versatile space to display items, stash suitcases, and keep clutter out of sight, leaving our bedroom sleek and organized.
Every home has unique spaces waiting to be discovered and transformed. Whether it’s an underutilized corner, an empty alcove, or an awkward area, these hidden gems offer exciting opportunities to add value and purpose to your living environment.
