12 Incredible Home Aquariums That Will Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

Decoist / Architecture Art Designs

A unique home will not only get you compliments, it will also make you love living there.

I've repurposed some antiques I bought at a garage sale into all sorts of things, like lamp bases, towel racks, and my newest obsession, aquariums.

Check out these 12 incredible home aquariums to get your creative juices flowing! It worked for me!

1.  Fish drops

Go inside your attic, garage, basement, or anywhere else you store your antiques or things you have no idea what to do with and find something you can repurpose into a fish bowl.

An antique gumball machine like the one above is so perfect, and it's great for betta fish. This is great if you're on a budget.

2. A colorful wall

If I was on a home renovation show, I'd definitely ask for my wall divider to look like this.

It makes your home look bigger, and appear like it's open concept.

3. All glass aquarium

Most aquariums that I see have a black outline on the edges. If you have a lot of colorful coral, it'll definitely look nicer in an all glass aquarium.

If it's against a white background, it looks like it's floating.

4. A cupboard

Turning one of your bathroom cupboards into a fish tank would definitely make bathroom time more interesting.

The average person spends at least 92 days in the bathroom in their lifetime, so might as well have a good view.

These next aquariums are just incredible!!

5. Aquarium or terrarium?

Big aquariums filled with plant life looks so appealing to the eye. If you've got the space for it, you should definitely give it a try.

6. TV aquarium

Turn your old TV box set into a small aquarium for your favorite fishes to swim around You'll get 24 hours of entertainment for free!

7. Mini Nile river

Jesus walked on water, but you can give off the illusion that you can too.

Renovating your floors to look like a river would be extremely expensive. Once you're done, I'd imagine it would be a lot of work to maintain, but how awesome is this?!

8. A divider

Here's another incredible wall divider. This one's a little bigger, and they've used smaller coral so that it makes the home look more spacious.

If I could have these next aquariums in my home, I'll never complain about my home decor every again!

9. Your kitchen sink

You'd definitely excite the fish too much if you ever decide to turn your kitchen sink into an aquarium, but the aesthetic is probably worth it.

My kids would also do the dishes more often, which is a bonus.

10. Your kitchen island

Transforming your kitchen island into an aquarium is visually appealing, but I'm not really sure where the pipes of that sink is going...

11. Old piano

Placing a mini-ocean over an old piano is genius!

Stacking an aquarium on top of something other than a table will always get compliments.

12. An ocean above your head

Another expensive one, but we can all dream, right? I'm thinking about the soothing sound of fishes swimming and how that would definitely help me fall asleep faster.

Which aquarium off this list is your favorite?
