10 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR HOUSE COOLER AND MORE FUN

 PRINT  |    EMAIL

Home is where the heart is, but, increasingly, it's also where the cool is. The latest tech creations and fun features that make everyday living so inspired you don't want to leave can turn a good home into something spectacular.

Whether you're looking to build a home that is the envy of the neighborhood - or one that could double as the next James Bond pad—or simply add a few features to up the fun factor or increase recreational opportunities, we've got some great options here.

1. Indoor resort pool

Anyone can have a resort-style pool. But how about an indoor resort pool complete with waterfalls, a grotto, and even an underground sound system? Hello, Playboy Mansion!

Not only is this one of the coolest pools we've ever seen, it's also usable year round - perfect for the Lake Tahoe, CA homeowner who wants to luxuriate by the pool even when the ground is covered in 10 feet of snow.

2. Dining room/pool table

This could save a lot of marriages. It's a hybrid dining room table-pool table that will end the argument about what goes in the dining room. I need this. Everyone needs this.

3. Classic car pool table

Don't care about your marriage (or have a separate space for your pool table other than the dining room)? This one's for you.

4. See-through bathtub

We're not sure who this is for, exactly. But we're pretty sure we want to know them.

5. Pouring light lamp

Part light fixture, part sculpture, this lamp "uses LED lights that are situated in the bucket and with the help of phosphorescence in the "water" it lights in a marvelous way," said Design your way.

6. Putting green

Have a side yard you're not sure what to do with? How about turning it into a putting green?

7. Tabletop fireplace

Sad because you don't have a fireplace? Add a tabletop version and create a little romance and intrigue for just over a hundred bucks. It might not keep you warm and toasty, but it will give you that flickering flame effect, and it burns clean liquid nu-flame bio-ethanol fuel.

8., 9., 10. Secret rooms

If you're building a house, you have infinite opportunities for creating something cool. Like this secret cellar hatch. Or any of these secret rooms. Or this hole in the floor...

Testimonials

I used Zillastate to purchase my first ever home. I'll admit, I was a little nervous and overwhelmed by the whole process. Jed and the Zillastate team turned this "overwhelming ordeal" into an incredibly smooth and seamless process for me. They took the time explain each and every detail so I was looped in and knew what to expect. They listened to my wants and needs and got me the home I wanted at the price I needed. I can now say that it was truly a great experience for me from start to finish. As of a few months ago, I've now used Zillastate to purchase my second home! I guess that speaks to how highly I think of this team.
