Want Some Outrageous Decorations in Your New Home?

Want Some Outrageous Decorations in Your New Home?

When you are moving to a new home, this is often the time when you might consider adding one or two outrageous design ideas that you have always wanted but couldn’t have because of space, budget, or other reasons. The fresh start of a new home often can give you the room, space, and time to design something crazy but fun and functional for your new house. Of course some ideas might be too crazy or are out of budget to consider this time around, but it is definitely fun to think that some of these designs could be in your near future if you put your mind to it.

Consider these options to make headlines and all your friends jealous!

If you are in love with the sea, fish tanks, or keeping fish as pets, then this is the way to spend your nights. You can do a little more than dream about the deep blue sea – sleep under it! The archway and lighting add quite a spectacular feature to your bedroom.

Inside – Outside Pool

This is the type of interior design that definitely would be considered outrageous and even luxurious. You also have to have the right type of house layout in order to make it work. If all those are in place and your budget allows for it, an indoor – outdoor pool can certainly turn your home into an oasis.

Walk-in Pool

Perhaps the indoor-outdoor pool is a bit too extravagant for you. However, it you are having an outdoor pool made for your home, you might consider this beautiful walk-in entry for your pool. It makes the pool look that much nicer and more elegant and also creates a great place to relax half in and half out of the water.

If your new home has a spiral staircase and the layout allows for some extra space, a spiral staircase slide will make your kids and your inner child as happy as can be. It’s a fun design element that is sure to have all the neighborhood kids wanting to come over and play too.

This indoor slide model might be a bit more extravagant than the spiral staircase slide, but it can mean a lot of space age fun for the kids. Every kid probably dreams of a slide inside, you can make your kids’ dreams come true if the layout and plan of your home can accommodate something like this.

Double Duty Dining Table and Pool Table

This outrageously cool design actually can be a space saver and budget conscious because it is less than buying a dining room table and a pool table too. It also saves space. If you have always wanted a pool table and never had the space for it, then this idea should be on the top of your new home design list. Of course, you can also seek out a table tennis, ping pong, or maybe foosball is your thing.

If you are stuck finding other ways to get your game play into your new home, you will probably be both impressed and amused by this ping pong table door. It folds down into a horizontal position so that you can play. When you aren’t playing, it’s just a regular door.

Storage Under the Stairs

I imagine that this might fall more under “practical design” and not as much as an outrageous one, but it still is a design that will make you very happy in your new home when you have less clutter and a ton of extra storage space. Once of the chief complaints to home décor designers and interior decorators is a lack of storage space. This is an organised storage space at that, which is an even bigger bonus.

Stairs Hammock

If you don’t have any place else in your home to lounge around, then a staircase hammock is the perfect thing for you. It’s a great conversation piece and also a peaceful place to read a book too.

An outdoor cinema motif is an excellent way to make friends with your new neighbors. It can be a temporary or more permanent set up depending on your budget. Either way, it is a great idea and perfect for entertaining. Start popping the popcorn to help get your ideas flowing and create some movie magic in your back yard.
