Dynamic Spaces

How a Container Can Transform From Work to PlayHow a Container Can Transform From Work to Play

One of the most innovative products over the past few years has been the use of shipping containers for the creation of new and dynamic spaces. These containers were once used specifically for shipping purposes but are now being repurposed for use in a number of different industries in many creative ways.

Shipping containers are extremely durable, and in addition to moving products all over the world, they can be used in the following ways as well:

Swimming Pools

Shipping container pools are a unique option that will elevate the appearance of your outdoor space, it is also cost-effective, so you will be happy with every aspect. When installing a container pool, the container must first be insulated to eliminate any water from leaking. The container is then cleaned and painted. If you’re looking for an underground pool, you’ll have to dig a hole that is the same size as the container so that it can be placed in the ground. Protect the soil with limestone and line your pool with insulation foam.

Affordable Housing

Shipping containers are being used more and more to make homes. This is a great way of utilizing used containers because the results are sleek and the homes are more affordable when compared to traditional housing options. Container homes can also be used for rental properties and this idea will help create a lot more homes for those in need.


Hotel rooms can be constructed out of used shipping containers because their durability allows them to be stacked, so multiple floors can be created easily as a result. Plumbing, electricity and décor are all key elements that must be added but the use of shipping containers will ensure your hotel is unique and one of a kind!


Shipping containers are versatile and give you the ability to be as creative as you’d like. If you want to create a space where you can relax, you can turn your shipping container into a sauna and can heat it using a wood-fire stove. You can also incorporate mood lighting and a stereo to enhance your experience, so go ahead and treat yourself to this idea.
