Create a unique talking point in your house
Making unique changes to your home can give it a personal touch as well as being an excellent talking point when you have visitors over. Whilst most of us won’t have the space or budget to make ground-breaking design changes, some people have taken the plunge with spectacular results. Feast your eyes on the following six bespoke designs that will give any home an instant wow factor.
The ping pong door
If you enjoy playing table tennis put don’t have the space to fit a table up at home, then why not create a unique, space-saving games table that transforms into a door? Whilst serving as a normal door, the middle section can be folded down horizontally to be used as a ping pong table!
Every home should have an element of fun injected into it, and there’s nothing more entertaining than coming down the stairs on a slide. The slide can be fitted adjacent to the stairs, so you can decide at the top which mode of descent takes your fancy at that particular time – of course, the slide will win hands down.
Vertical herb garden
Many people have recognised the benefits of having an indoor living wall, where you grow plants vertically against the wall. It can help to reduce toxins in the home but also has great design appeal, as well as saving you space. Incorporating a vertical herb garden into a wall in your kitchen is not only a unique design idea with masses of style but it’s ideal for those with a small kitchen who may lack windowsill space to store fresh pots of herbs. It’s good for the environment, too.
If you’re a bit of a bookworm, then you’ll soon know how easy it is to amass books but struggle for that extra storage space to tidy them away. For a really bespoke, space-saving design, consider incorporating bookcases within your staircase. Each step can be pulled out to store books underneath, and the sides of the sides can also be made use of for storing books. The only dilemma will be every time you use the stairs you may find yourself getting lost in the nearest book.
Dining pool table
If you like the idea of having guests over for dinner and then carrying on the entertainment by transforming the dining table into a pool table, then this unique design idea is likely to get the thumbs up from all your guests. It’s also perfect for those who don’t have enough space to have a dedicated games room.
Light up your stairs
Who says that your stairs should be functional and boring? Instead, inject some style into them with LED lighting. They’ll add visual appeal to any home and will make monotonous trips upstairs a little more exciting.
