Steve Jobs once said, “Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. It’s not what it looks like and feels like. The design is how it works.” A growing number of people want to turn their houses into unique places that will bring joy to their hearts and will be pleasing to the eye. The list below is a compilation of design ideas that combine both: a stunning appearance and a practical approach.

We at Enlighten collected some unusual design ideas from the internet and are excited to share them with you. Look at these photos if you want to feel inspired to change your house and to boost your creativity.
