There are many ways an automotive fan may express fondness for cars and vehicle. There are those gearheads who tinker with automobiles by restoring vintage models in their garage. Other enthusiasts choose to upgrade their car’s interiors and add comfortable leather covers, as well as the latest gadgets, to keep up with digital car trends. Others even install an in-car computer mount so they can work within their beloved vehicles.
And then there are those who bring their passion literally inside their houses and give their interior décors a spin. If you are that kind of car guy (or gal) who is looking for some car-inspired home concepts, here are a few ideas to get your planning engines revving:
Drifting to dreamland. Step on it and head on to a good night’s sleep with a car-inspired bed. With this one waiting for you in your bedroom, you no longer have to wait until the morning to get cozy in your favorite vehicle.
Gearing-up bathrooms. Trade in your typical bathroom sinks to one that resembles wheels and change your faucet heads to fuel-nozzle-ended ones. You can even go for a gear-shift-operated lavatory or change the door handles into wrench-shaped ones.
Living (rooms) on the fast lane. Showcase your car-loving persona to your guests with a vintage car-sofa and some motorsports inspired chairs or ottomans. Go for bookshelves adorned with book stoppers resembling car mags and wall clocks designed to mimic race car rims. Or you can choose to give your home speaker system a boost, with car-inspired speakers that are made of original luxury car exhaust parts. Make your low table the center of attention by adding automobile-related touches such as toolbox pieces or engine motor designs. Lastly, keep your guests’ eyes glued to the screen as they watch on your flat-screen that is propped on car-bumper TV lifts.
Accelerating kitchens. If you also want your kitchen to reflect your fondness for cars, try adding appliances that have car-inspired themes and designs. From retro-looking Volkswagen refrigerators, espresso machines, toasters, and even car-themed kitchen counters and shelves, you’re sure to race off to your kitchen, any time of day.
