Karl Champley – HGTV and DIY Network star, radio host, author of Same Place, More Space, master builder, home inspector and environmental home consultant – is a pro at making the most out of any living space. He has built, remodeled or renovated countless homes. He knows that homeowners want more space, one way or another. He also knows that most homeowners don’t maximize the space they already have.
From medicine cabinets to kitchen islands, Karl knows how to build the elements in your home to help you calm clutter and find a place for everything.
Karl Champley is now looking for new product ideas that can help homeowners regain space and organize more efficiently. Think of products that can create more room in your home – maybe it’s a new way to organize those pots and pans, or a new way to keep all those bottles in the bathroom under control. It’s time to roll up your sleeves and start thinking of inventions that will complement any Karl Champley-worthy renovation project.
What ideas do you have that can bring organization and space to your home?

We ask for well-communicated ideas. This includes filling out our easy-to-use submission form to the best of your ability. Upload images, sketches and any other media that support your idea. Tell us your story. We even encourage you to create a video demonstrating your innovation. Don’t worry. We aren’t expecting you to break out your inner Spielberg. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
As always, your submission should be unique and protectable (patent protection is helpful but not a requirement).
Each idea costs just $25 ($20 for Edison Insiders) to submit. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, your idea may be submitted to as many searches as you would like at no additional cost. Click here for more details on Live Product Searches.
Is my idea secure?
Yes! Every idea that is submitted to Edison Nation remains private. If your idea is selected to be presented to a partner, we have strict NDAs in place. Your intellectual property is extremely important to us.
If my idea is selected, what do I get?
If your idea is selected for licensing, we will remain in contact with you and our partner from the moment the deal is signed until it is ready for the marketplace. Our team negotiates competitive royalty structures and all licensing revenues are split 50/50 with you, the original inventor.
Why do I have to pay $25?
$25 is a nominal fee to help offset the costs Edison Nation takes on to review each idea that's submitted. It is a one-time cost. If your idea is selected for licensing, we will navigate the road to commercialization -- all at no cost to you. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, the submission fee is only $20!
What do I need to submit?
We'll review all ideas, whether it's a sketch on a napkin or a prototyped invention. You don't need a patent to submit an idea to Edison Nation.
