Custom furniture can be really expensive. Because it is that little bit more desirable and original, the manufacturers seem to think they can charge silly money, and perhaps they are right. Sales of custom furniture seem to be gathering pace, and personally, while I would love to purchase some of those beautiful items, they are simply out of my budget.
However all is not lost, as while perusing the internet, I stumbled across expertaquariums.com, a website that specialises in reviews novel and original fish tanks. Now whether the rich and famous haven’t entered this market, or the very thought of caring for the fish puts them off, I simply don’t know, but these unique and original pieces of furniture are much more reasonably priced.
Fish tanks come in all shapes and sizes from small lights to large tables or cabinets which can then actually serve as the focal point of your room. The variety and choices available to you are virtually unlimited, and I can almost guarantee the tank will become a talking point for any guests who pop over for a cup of coffee.
Without going through every aquarium available, there are a couple of ones that really caught my eye.
The first is an aquarium grandfather style clock. Effectively the tank is a free standing rectangular shape, and at the very top is a proper clock. So the fish are swimming about in what would be the innards of the clock if indeed it was a real working clock. This looks stunning but also has the benefit of adding a clock to your living room, so it is more than merely decorative.
Another totally original piece of furniture that incorporates an aquarium is the leather sofa. The arm rest supports contain the aquariums, one at each end, and this really has to be seen to be believed. Due consideration would need to be taken with this one, as I am unsure how child-friendly and childproof these tanks would be.
The third and final piece of furniture I want to highlight today is the fireplace. This is quite simply breathtaking. The aquarium forms the surround of the fireplace itself, and therefore will naturally be the focal point of the room anyway. But just imagine in the middle of winter turning down the lights, putting on the fire and watching two of the more mesmerizing sights on the planet in your living room, an open fire, and a fish tank. There is no other word for it but stunning.
These are just a few ideas to get your mind going and perhaps allow you to come up with something really special for your home. When you consider that research shows that watching fish is very relaxing and therapeutic, the furniture is relatively cheap all things considered, and the fish provide ever-changing scenery, it is my strongest recommendation that you visit Expert Aquariums today.
