Here are 4 ways to incorporate an aquarium into your home.
In the Kitchen
From handle-less soft close cabinetry to remote control lighting and the latest built-in kitchen gadgets, creating a kitchen with a wow factor is fairly easy these days. Adding an aquarium can take it to a whole different level. If your kitchen is big enough and you can free up some counter space, why not have a large aquarium built between your base and wall cabinets. It will not only look amazing but will create an incredible focal point. If that doesn’t appeal then you can take things one step further and build an aquarium island! Instead of a run of the mill cabinets underneath your worktops, you will have lots and lots of beautiful fish! You would need to ensure that the aquarium could withstand the weight of your countertops, but if you take professional advice, there is nothing to stop you from creating this amazing feature in your kitchen.
A Room Divider
If your room is fairly substantial in size, adding a division to create two separate smaller yet more functional spaces might be a consideration. Instead of going down the usual route of having a builder create a stud wall partition, why not incorporate an aquarium? Adding lots of beautiful fish, differently colored coral, and some stunning reef lighting will create a room divider with more character than you could ever have imagined.
A Coffee Table
Another unusual way to incorporate an aquarium into your home is with a coffee table. Placing an aquarium on a lower shelf and adding a tabletop will not only create a statement piece but will be extremely functional too! Add some color changing lights and succulent planting, and coffee time will never be the same again.
A Piece of Art
If you love the idea of having an aquarium in your home but don’t want a huge statement piece and fancy something more portable, have a go at making a lightbulb aquarium. Just to be clear, you don’t add fish – that would be dangerous and cruel. Adding glass beads, moss, embellishments and water to a lightbulb or lightbulb shaped bottle or container can be a really fun craft to try and the finished result can look amazing! It’s a great way to add splashes of color to your home and the kids will love getting involved too.
