Finding Nemo: 5 Aquariums that Bring the Ocean to Your Living Room
These home aquariums leave no fish out of water.
Many people dream of finding a home with water frontage. But, when the budget doesn’t allow for sand at your doorstep, installing an aquarium can bring marine life to your home in a unique way. Here are 5 homes with aquariums that bring the ocean to your living room.
Many people find watching fish in an aquarium as relaxing as watching a roaring fire. Well, luckily in this Burr Ridge, IL home, you don’t have to choose one or the other. Not only does the bluish purple lighting in the fish tank add a pop of color to this living room, the in-wall installation makes a statement. Kick back in front of the fire and choose between fire & water.
When your home overlooks the ocean, it’s only natural to bring the ocean indoors. Not only does the color palette of this home imitate sand and waves, the large salt water aquarium truly brings the sea inside. We love how it’s incorporated into the built-ins just off the kitchen.
This two-sided built-in aquarium faces the study and the chef’s kitchen. We love the idea of incorporating a calming feature like an aquarium into a study where your mind needs peace and quiet. You can even peek through the coral to see when dinner’s ready!
This custom aquarium is located in the entryway of this Malibu, CA home. What a great first impression! Climb the stairs to the left to get different perspectives of the fish swimming around.
Looking for a way to make an unforgettable first impression? Center an eye-catching aquarium in the middle of a wall of all glass. Visitors to your home will know they’re in for a real treat with this view before they even enter. Coupled with the pool and fountain outside, this Safety Harbor, FL would find no fish out of water.
