If you ever wanted inspiration for making your home look more beautiful, there's loads of that online. Even sites like Pinterest make it easy to find ideas for themes, styles, and furniture.
But, there is one thing that I've noticed. There isn't enough inspiration out there if you want to make your home both stylish AND unique! Well, today I'll hopefully be changing that with this blog post.
Here is a selection of ideas that'll give you some food for thought. You can thank me later!
Make watching TV an experience with a movie theater room
Movie theaters conjure up all kinds of memories for people. There's no denying that movie theaters offer the best cinematic experience anywhere.
Why not bring that experience to your home with a themed movie theater room? Believe it or not, there are companies out there that can sell you an entire movie theater room package! If you don't believe me, check out theaterseatstore.com for an example.
Aside from being an outstanding viewing experience, it can also be suitable for hosting parties too. Imagine watching a live football game with your buddies in such a room? Or a music event with your favorite tunes played on cinema speakers?
Don't blame me if you decide to spend most of your time in your home theater. All I've done is provide you with the inspiration!
The 1950s diner-style kitchen for lovers of all things retro
I don't know about you, but I do have a secret lust for all things retro and vintage. If I could have a time machine, I'd probably time-hop to all kinds of exciting eras.
One retro idea that I turned into reality for my own house is a 1950s-style diner in my kitchen. As you might've guessed, I've got black and white pattern tiles on the floor. I've also gone for a red and white color scheme.
The cooking area in my kitchen makes extensive use of brushed stainless steel. You know the thing I love the most about my retro kitchen? I've even got an authentic 50s jukebox in there too!
If I had space, I'd even have seating booths! Although that's going a little overboard, even for me I suspect. Still, it's different, but in a good way.
The ultimate luxury bathroom
Do you want to give your bathroom a design makeover? And are you stuck for ideas when it comes to sticking with a theme? Well, fret no more because here's an idea that is beyond compare.
If you've got a large space, consider creating an ultimate luxury bathroom. Let me set the scene for you.
As you enter through your bathroom door, an open, airy space greets you. Located in the middle is a large tub facing a beautiful forest backdrop. Or, a large voice-activated wide-screen TV!
There are sinks for both you and your partner or spouse to use. And tucked away in a nook is a shower designed to take away the day's stresses from you.
When you're feeling in need of relaxation, you could sit in the spa-bath with some scented candles around you. Meanwhile, some music to chill down to is playing from a Bluetooth speaker system. Naturally, it's also voice-controlled and links in with your Spotify account.
Your new bathroom would become the favorite part of your house if yours were a luxury one!
No parking space? No problem!
Sometimes, it can be tough to choose between having a drive with lots of parking space and a beautiful front garden. It's even more of a problem if you live in an area where parking is at a premium.
The good news is you can now solve that problem with a car lift! In a nutshell, this is like an elevator but for your vehicle. You drive onto a ramp, get out of your car, and have the system "park" your car underground.
Plus, you can also park another car on top. It's an ideal solution if you haven't got much space outside your house. And it's also an effective way of keeping an expensive car out of sight.
Turn your backyard into a theme park
Sure, there are all kinds of ways to make a garden or outdoor area look stylish and unique. Some folks have even created impressive mazes - perfect for getting lost on purpose.
But, has anyone ever suggested you create a theme park of sorts in your backyard? You could go wild and create something that would rival Disneyland. The only things holding you back is your imagination and bank balance!
I have a friend that recently converted several acres of land into a dinosaur-themed garden. He even had some animatronic dinosaurs installed, like the one on onlydinosaurs.com. It's certainly a talking point to any visitor at his home!
