Most of us spend hundreds of hours and thousands of pounds keeping our homes looking good every year. We do it to add value and to ensure our homes represent what is attractive and fashionable at the time. But it’s important our homes service us as well. After all, we want to live comfortably and enjoy our leisure time in the house. There are lots of ways you can treat yourself at home with just a few additions.
Many people have gardens at home. Too few of us are really making the most of our outdoor space, though. One addition you might enjoy is a hot tub. Hot tubs have been popular for several decades now. But they’re more affordable than ever. Best of all, if you have a covered outdoor space, you may even be able to make the most of your hot tub all year round. Just imagine all those warm bubbles soothing away a tough day. Luxury!
There are many electronic gizmos and gadgets that can make our lives at home even more pleasurable. One of the best ones has to be the app-controlled thermostat. This can be used to make sure the house is warmed up ready for your arrival home from work. And if you forget to turn the heating off before you leave, just log in and do it from your phone. Now there’s no need to get up and adjust the heating in the home. It can all be done from the comfort of your bed or sofa.
If you’re thinking of having your bathroom fitted out soon, then why not add a jacuzzi shower cubicle? You can enjoy your own iPod playlist and even some interactive lights to make the most of your time in the shower each morning. Jets can soothe your body from head to toe and everywhere in between. And with touch screen adjustments, you can get everything just the way you want it.
Many of us have a spare room that doubles up as a junk room. It may be a bedroom, or maybe a basement. Perhaps your loft is boarded out but full of boxes? Now is a great time to turn that wasted space into your very own hobby room. Clear out the clutter, add some carpet and a fresh lick of paint, and you’re ready to go. Whether you’re an artist, a musician, or even a wannabe novelist, you can make the most of your brand new hobby room.
The ultimate comfort at home has to be the bed. In the last couple of years, mattress technologies have bloomed, and there is now more choice than ever. Do you get too hot at night? No problem. Choose a cool foam latex mattress. Need something that supports you while you sleep, so you wake up refreshed? Memory foam could be the answer. Go on. Treat yourself to a super king size bed.
We love our houses. But you can love them even more if you treat yourself to a little luxury and pampering. Go on. Spoil yourself!
