A Lego stairway to heaven! How homeowners are including the beloved toy bricks in their interior designs Read

This blog showcases a range of home designs using Lego, ranging from a useful keyring holder to an entire staircase banister. The Lego staircase banister consists of almost 20,000 pieces of the colourful toy brick.

Most people have spent part of their childhood playing with Lego. But it seems that some adults are simply not prepared to pack away the lovable toy bricks once they own a home of their own. A series of photos has been released showing how the toy can be incorporated into people’s homes, in a useful and colourful way.
They cover everything from keyring holders and kitchen splashbacks to an entire staircase banister consisting of almost 20,000 pieces.

Stephen Jury, a spokesman for Plentific, the home services website which identified the photos, said: ‘People are always looking for new and exciting ways to revamp their homes, and Lego has provided just the tool for homeowners to design their own unique decorations around the house.’
He added: ‘With hundreds of different colours and shapes, carrying out decoration work using Lego bricks provides unlimited options and ensures each design is customised to the homeowners taste.

Architect Felix Grauer, 30, who designed a Lego keyring holder has been playing with Lego since he was a child. He now regularly uses Lego in his architecture work, to construct things and see how they work – albeit on a smaller scale. He explained how he designed the keyring holder, saying: ‘I initially had the Lego on the keyrings in my pocket and then decided to attach them to a board. ‘The keyring holder was really easy to make and I keep it inside the door of my flat. As soon as I get in I put the key on the board and it works really well. ‘I use it for the keys to my home and for my scooter. I have different coloured lego attached to each keyring to know which key is which.

It follows the launch of Lego compatible tape earlier this year.
The sticky tape – called Nimuno Loops – allows Lego and similar brick-style toys to be built around corners, upside down and on objects.
Co-founder Pierre Swart recently visited the London HQ of MailOnline to give us the first UK demonstration of the prototype tape, which is expected to sell for around £12 when launched in August. The tape’s launch could see interior designs using lego become even elaborate.

The Danish company first started manufacturing the toy bricks in 1949 and have since become a firm stable of most people’s childhood.
The brand has also grown to include movies, games, competitions and amusement parks.
