There are rules for everything in life, and there are people who break boundaries to create new rules and inspire new ideas. In the world of interior decorating, the people who push design limits and the rooms that they create can be an incredible source of inspiration.
When looking for new ideas for your home, it can be so much fun to dream about grand, over-the-top designs and work out how to fit them into your bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen. Here are some of our favourite inspirations that really push design limits.
Aquariums are incredibly relaxing to have in your home. So what better place to put one than in your bedroom? However, we don’t mean a little bowl with a goldfish in it sitting on the book shelf. In these room designs, the fish tank is the focal point.
Instead of having a television in your bedroom, try a fish tank. It makes a beautiful statement and can be so relaxing to watch the fish swimming around.
When fitting a fish tank into the wall of a room, always get an expert to advise you on maintaining temperature and cleaning the water.
Sandbox home office
There’s nothing quite like the feel of sand between your toes. It conjures up images of seaside holidays and taking long relaxing strolls down the coastline. This brilliant, boundary pushing idea for a home office allows you to bring the beach into your study. Just think how nice it would be to sit and work while burying your toes in the sand.
There is the potential for this idea to get a little messy, but store a vacuum cleaner close by and everything will be fine. It might also be a good idea to keep your pets out of the room.
Stainless steel farmhouse kitchen
Blending design styles together is very much in fashion right now. In this kitchen, the designer has taken a classic country style and modernised it completely by using stainless steel for all of the fittings.
Stainless steel is used in kitchens all over the world and is preferred by professional chefs. It’s easy to clean, highly durable and needs very little maintenance. However, it can be a little cold on its own. This is why adding the charming country style makes a room like this work perfectly.
By creating a fusion between two styles, you will end up with a home that reflects who you are and is completely unique.
