All homes are unique — whether it’s a classic bungalow or a house built like a flower pot (yes, you read that right!). All spaces have quirks that make them special. The room shapes make interior designer Laura Hall’s end terrace house distinctive.

“The house is a unique shape, not a traditional hexagon, though,” Laura explains. “It is an end house and has a strange layout. We have used this to maximize the space downstairs as much as possible.”

Laura shares the four-bedroom Liverpool house with her partner, Graham, and two kids, Ben and Rory. Throughout the eight-and-a-half years that they’ve lived there, they’ve found ways to make the most of their somewhat awkward room shapes. Namely, they’ve spent around £120,000 (just under $150,000) on renovations. 

“We have completely remodeled the downstairs, creating two living spaces, an open-plan kitchen diner, utility room, and downstairs cloakroom,” Laura shares. “Upstairs, we have renovated the family bathroom and converted the loft into a bedroom and en suite.”

Even though the quirky shaped rooms made furnishing and decorating a bit of a design challenge, Laura admits she was up for it. And it’s fair to say that she won out. The brightly colored rooms and gorgeous secondhand furniture (peep the dining table found on eBay) add so much life and energy to their house.

“It’s a busy family home, so we spend a lot of time at home with the kids, chilling out, watching TV, playing in the garden, doing homework, but we also both work from home so we’re home most of the time,” Laura adds. “My fave room is the green living room. This is known as ‘mummy’s room’ and it’s my haven from the chaos of the rest of the home.”
