Pop Out stairs

Most starter homes or apartments in metropolitan areas aren't usually the largest of places, but with the right furniture, things can appear to be a lot more spacious. For example, installing drawers and shelves directly into your staircase might be an option to consider, especially if your home is still under construction or due for a big renovation.

Radioactive Shelf

Web designer / graphic artist Mat Brown created these awesome shelves with his own hands, and not some computer program. He says, "We were running a bit short on shelving in the kitchen and wanted somewhere we could store all the preserves we're going to make from the garden this year, so we went to the timber yard to see what they had. They had this, 155cm long piece of chestnut. It was pretty heavily cracked and pitted, with knotholes and so on. But, I had a plan. Resin inlay. A technique traditionally used with a colour-matched epoxy to the wood, to give an 'invisible' repair. I'm taking a slightly different approach."

Ultimate Man Caves

Man caves have multiple purposes: they are a place to be alone, to indulge in hobbies, and to hang out with male friends. It is, loosely, a male-only space to retreat to watch sports matches, play video games, or catch the latest television shows as well as movies. However, all of these activities would be so much better in one of the above rooms. Click here to view the first image in this week's WINS gallery.

Transparent Bathroom Floor

No, this isn't a theme park attraction where the floor suddenly drops out, just a real bathroom inside a penthouse. The luxury penthouse is located directly on top of a 1970s Mexican colonial building in Guadalajara, Mexico. The adventurous architects said: "A characteristic feature of the project is that a volume that was originally intended for a second elevator, and was never installed, becomes a powder room with a glass floor that looks down all the 15 levels."

Cool Shower

The ancient Greeks were the first people to have showers. The first mechanical shower, operated via a hand pump, was patented in England in 1767 by William Feetham, a stove maker from Ludgate Hill in London. His shower contraption used a pump to force the water into a vessel above the user's head and a chain would then be pulled to release the water from the vessel. Now, you can have a shower built with heat-sensitive tiles that change color. Continue reading for more.

Improve Life Invention

There are some inventions you use once and then throw to the side, while there are others that are used daily.

Stepping out of your home for a few minutes to pick up groceries, kids, etc.? Make sure you set the alarm (if you have one), as it doesn't take long for a burglar(s) to pilfer whatever they've been looking to snag, especially if they know your daily routine. Another simple way to deter burglars is to make sure the door knob flyers are always taken down rather than left to collect dust. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Tiny Island House

It's technically not an island, but the Recreational Island House by 2b4-architects isn't your average home, as it's designed to interact with the environment. For example, the northern facade opens up toward the water while the living room floor becomes a jetty, on a hot day. There's also a hanging fireplace and surrounding lounge area that can be rotated towards the outdoor terrace when it gets chilly. Continue reading for more cool homes geeks would love.

Super Mario Fish Tank

Unlike other aquariums, this 55-gallon example looks to be a stage straight from the original Super Mario Bros. game. It was created by graphic designer and blogger Kelsey Kronmiller, taking approximately 336-hours to complete. According to Kelsey, the number of coins will be tied to the number of fish in the tank once it's fully set up. She plans on filling it with Electric Blue Jack Dempseys.
