Home services marketplace Plentific.com has been exploring how Lego can be used for home decoration and furniture creation.
Established in 1949, Lego has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the world’s most well-known brands. With Lego construction sets, blockbuster films, theme parks and now a growing community of artists and designers, Lego has established itself as much more than a mere child’s toy.
When it comes to home decor, many homeowners like to think outside the box, exploring some rather unusual and creative ideas. Lego is a versatile and dynamic design tool which can be used to create some amazing home additions. With quirky property designs emerging as a new trend, Lego decor has been seen popping up in more and more homes, adding colour and unique style to properties.
Spokesperson for Plentific, Stephen Jury, commented: “People are always looking for new and exciting ways to revamp their homes, and Lego has provided just the tool for homeowners to design their own unique decorations around the house. With hundreds of different colours and shapes, carrying out decoration work using Lego bricks provides unlimited options and ensures each design is customised to the homeowners taste.
"There are plenty of designs out there from creative individuals who have pushed the boundaries of what these bricks can be used for. Here are a few examples we love:"
Add a splash of colour to your kitchen with this bright utensils pot. Ideal for storing your salad servers, spatula, ladles and whisks, this Lego pot is guaranteed to liven up any kitchen. By experimenting with Lego brick sizes and colours, it’s possible to produce a truly bespoke kitchen accessory to display in pride of place in your home.
This Lego kitchen splashback is a great way to inject colour to the room in a fun and unique way. The use of different size bricks means adding little details such as functioning windows and doors is easy, and due to the structure of the bricks, keeping features like wall sockets exposed for that all important coffee maker is simple. You could take this one step further by designing a food themed pattern to decorate your walls, or even use the basic idea to add a touch of colour to your living room by running a line of Lego bricks along the skirting board.
A Lego lamp is great addition to any home. The sleek style is clean and crisp, with the use of solid colour proving how diverse Lego home accessories can be. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could experiment with your own shape designs and size to suit your preferences and create a talking point within any room.
Feeling under the weather? Cheer yourself up with this brightly coloured Lego tissue box. If you build the cover around an original box, leaving out the base, you can slip this over a new box when it runs out. No need for any deconstruction when re-stocking your tissues.
Of course, it would be easy to take it one step further: instead of enclosing the top, leave it open, add a few more layers, and hey presto! You’ll have a completely new design fit for all those lovely spring flowers, ideal for freshening up your home.
