We love the dog nook under the stairs – tell us about it The black labrador loves it and makes herself at home here every day. It has a hydronically heated slab to make it extra warm and cosy. Other dog-friendly features include doggy doors in the single-pane windows so she can access the backyard and courtyard, and a customised water/food bench in the laundry with an integrated dog-food dispenser.Dog Days: 8 Garden Features to Delight Your Pooch

Fluid spacesA truly ambiguous space allows you to reconfigure your home to suit your needs, not just now but in the future. Changes in lifestyle and new members of the family are cleverly accommodated without encroaching on anyone else’s space. Making the most of under-utilised space is a crucial factor. In this renovation, the underside of a staircase was turned into a charging station and cubby space for a beautiful black lab. Down the track, this versatile spot could also be used as a study nook or for storage.15 home office nooks that might be right under your nose
