House for hamsters from plastic bottles

Wood is a natural and environmentally friendly material, which is very important in arranging a room such as a kitchen. After all, here not only food is prepared, but the whole family gathers for Sunday lunch. In a standard apartment, it is difficult to roam fantasies and come up with something like that, but the designers manage to beat the wood in the kitchen.

Clapboard ceiling

This modern interior of the studio kitchen is very original. Particularly noteworthy is the idea of ​​a clapboard on the ceiling, which smoothly passes into the wall, thereby changing the space. The same texture is on the wall near the table - the bar counter. The wall not only serves as a decor, but also closes the heating and electrical communications, while a special window is equipped for the flow of warm air.

Natural furniture

Every housewife dreams of getting a wooden kitchen set, as in this project. After all, wood is much more resistant to temperature and humidity extremes than chipboard - the material from which facades are usually made. It is much more durable and practical, since over time the facades can be opened with varnish, and the set will be like new.

In addition, the natural wood grain gives the room a unique atmosphere. True, the price of wooden furniture is much higher.

The main thing in the kitchen is the table

The large round wooden table in the center of the kitchen is a picture from the novels of the early 20th century. It is difficult to fulfill such a fantasy in 6–8 square meters, but an oval table near the window solves a functional problem and becomes a stylish decor itself. The tabletop of the working area is made in the same concept. And wooden chairs are the logical completion of the general idea.

Solid wood

A large kitchen gives you more room for ideas. Here the designers have tried their best - from redevelopment of the kitchen to finishing. There is a parquet board on the floor, the work apron is tiled with wood grain tiles, and the wall near the kitchen table is decorated with 3D panels, which are made up of small cubes of wood.

At the end of the picture there is a wooden window frame, opened with stain and varnish.

Wood in the interior of the kitchen in the apartment: 6 interesting ideas with photos

Many, whose childhood and adolescence fell on the beginning of the 2000s, remember the BBC series of popular science films "Walking with Dinosaurs / Sea Monsters / Monsters, etc."

I especially liked the second one, because before that I learned in the museum that the Moscow region had been an ancient sea for hundreds of millions of years, and on the banks of rivers and rubble mountains, even a 6-year-old could find ancient shells of abodes of the sea depths. In other words, he associated it with his native places, and not abstract America, where dinosaur fossils are found.

Actually, one of the first episodes featured an ancient cephalopod mollusc - the orthocon.

I was impressed enough by this and was eager to find at least part of his shell among the stones. Well, at least the logic was such that no one else is looking specifically, but if you are careful, you can find. So for the next couple of weeks I was looking at random street stones and. luck turned up at one point!

On the stone there was a bead imprint of a shell with spiral curls, well, very similar to what I have been looking for for so long! There was only one nuance - the print, although small, but the stone was a weighty cobblestone, so I decided to approach my parents with a proposal to sharpen it a little. However, my father, looking at my find, hehnul and offered to leave it as it is. And then you never know will be lost. And so it will, they say, lie at home, grow up - you will study.

I was even a little upset at first, but come on, it was a print anyway, not a fossilized shell, maybe I can find a better sample. but over time, I somehow lost interest in this adventure, and the stone lay for a long time in the closet.

I drew attention to this stone again when I was ten years old and already thought a little, because the cobblestone was not quite a stone, on which an imprint was not quite a shell, not quite an orthocon.

Actually, this "fossil" was a piece of concrete with an imprint of reinforcement. But the main thing is that the find of childhood is still pleasing to the eye)

In a positive world

Making a maze of plastic bottles for a rodent

Hello world, today we will make you a little cleaner! Yes, another milestone has been added to the history of plastic bottle recycling. Indeed, what is not done only from plastic bottles! But, unfortunately, many people continue to throw them away thoughtlessly. Today we invite you to step back from this traditional practice and make something useful out of empty plastic bottles. And we will make a labyrinth out of them for mice, rats, hamsters or other funny rodents, which many positive people like to keep at home.

A bit of background. I first encountered such a labyrinth when I was a child. I loved to do all kinds of homemade products. That only is our turbojet aircraft on a rubber engine. It all started with the book Crazy Hands.

It was there that the idea of ​​using empty plastic bottles to create a kind of enclosure for domestic rodents was proposed and even an assembly scheme was proposed. The beauty of this eco-friendly engineering solution is that the bottles are transparent and you can easily watch the adventures of your mice, rats or hamsters inside the maze.

I didn't have my own little gnawing pet, but my friends helped me out. Or rather, friend Alexei, at that time it was just Lesha. A whole pedigree rat lived in his house. The animal was very friendly, but it could bite. The color of the animal had a beautiful metallic sheen, and the tail was of an interesting block-like shape. By that time, Lyokha's rat had lived for quite a long time, had already eaten two sea turtles from the aquarium, and once climbed into a cage with a parrot and fought with him (the parrot was big, and this saved his life). Therefore, we boldly decided to use a rat as a tester for our labyrinth, it can handle everything. The project was completed successfully, the maze was assembled in the shortest possible time, the rat is happy with the new home, and we, in turn, were very interested in posing as insane scientists in a top-secret laboratory.

And now, many years later, I decided to revive this project! But this time we'll do deeper research, use more test subjects, and capture the whole process for history. The Ambrela corporation is resting! I present to your attention a cybernetic den for rodents, codenamed PROJECT MYSHKO.

PROJECT MYSHKO - assembly instructions

We need a lot of empty plastic bottles to work. Their number depends on the desired size of the future labyrinth. More bottles - longer and more intricate maze. You also need scissors, a sharp knife, a marker, tape or glue may come in handy.

Now let's start creating the first working module of our ultra-modern cybernetic mouse den. To do this, draw two circles on one of the bottles, along which we will then cut the airlock.

There should be two circles: large and small. Subsequently, another bottle will have to crawl into the large circle, and only the neck of this bottle should crawl out through the small circle on the other side. Be sure to keep these dimensions in mind when designing the airlock (I figured out my bulging naval eye, but experienced engineers can use a caliper or a simple ruler).
