I don’t know why, but this kind of thing is so cool to me! When it comes to home wares and buildings, I love items/spaces that have multiple purposes, hidden rooms behind fake doors, and things that turn into other things! I’ve always loved caravans for this reason - I remember being so amazed when I realised that in one caravan we used the dining table turned into a bed! This is a super cool round up of hidden beds. I personally wouldn’t have a hidden bed for everyday use but if you’re living in a super small space (dorm rooms, tiny apartments!) and need space these would be perfect - also good for unexpected guests. My favourite is picture 5 & 6 - that bed looks like it might actually be quite comfy!
p.s. if you watch Grand Designs as much as I do, you will recognise the bed over bath picture! That house in itself was an amazing feat of design, especially that sliding roof!
Many of us adore our cats; and it looks like the Japanese regard them like children. Some Japanese housing builders have come up with designs with special features for cats. Here are the images from a house called Plus-Nyan house by Asahi Kasei, a leading house builder in Japan. This could be a dream house for every cat owner and their cats, as it would require great deal of research to design these houses keeping in mind the requirements of the clients and their cats. Here are a few key features: open air cat walks, climbing steps, cat doors in every door, deck built in to the window, extra space in the bathroom designed for their compartment, cat room hidden under the stairs, special fencing to prevent cats from getting away. Apart from these, there has been use of cat friendly construction materials as well.
BABE WE HAVE TO
Fuck, I would just settle for the bathroom designed to hold the litter box.
