The choice is yours if you want to add a modern or traditional holiday resort features to your home. A simple home can be enhanced to look more appealing like romantic getaways. Instead of spending money on weekend vacations, brainstorm on how to replicate the features of your favourite holiday resort in your home. Check out these resort features and integrate them into your home’s floor plan.
Create a Tree Swing
It’s useful to convert an old tree in the yard into a swing than cut it. Kids and teenagers love to a swing on sturdy branches of shady trees. Summertime being a long season for vacation could also avail your little nieces and nephews a perfect reunion at your home. Instead of spending the rare moment in getaway locations, be generous and use the big shade tree for fun-filled activities that promote bonding.
Create a Backyard Pond
Find areas with uneven elevation and undulating landscapes at your backyard. Naturally, ponds collect rainwater and turn the pool into a habitat. Find the best location to dig a backyard pond and attract colourful birds, and aquatic animals. At sunset when the lake is serene, you can take a restful view beside the lake and enjoy your home’s holiday resort. Add some flower pots around the pond to attract butterflies; their sight helps to recreate the tranquillity of getaway resorts.
Add a Relaxing Fountain
Add a water fountain to your green area. Water fountains increase the level of oxygen within its surrounding. It also adds a touch of luxury and style to your relaxation space. The fountain might be too small to wade in its babbling brook, but the sound of flowing waters might bring tranquillity to your backyard. Build an ecstatic fountain with a pump and garden pots. It’s an inexpensive feature that helps you unwind, and see you home as the extension of a beautiful resort. Also, install a barbecue stand, or outdoor cooking space beside the fountain. If there’s enough space, create a fenced garden as a secluded place for evening and weekend relaxation.
Renovate your Deck
The patio and decks of resorts are designed for people to enjoy the natural ambience of isolated getaway locations. You can create a deck that transforms your home into a resort. If you have an existing deck attached to the building, check for areas that need renovation. The quality of outdoor relaxation on decks can be affected by smells of mildew and moulds. You can protect the deck with tarpaulin covers during fall and winter months. Then apply paint to enhance the structure and make it a comfortable hangout that puts you in vacation mood at home.
Transform the Porch
Turn the porch into an open-air dining room brings elegance to your home. Usually, resorts in African safaris offer breakfast service on porches to guests. Instead of transforming the porch into another room, make it your summer outdoor dining room. Decorate the porch with dropping flower beds, sideboards, artworks, curtains, and furniture. More so, a serene porch should have a free-swaying rocker or swing for ladies. If it’s properly designed, the porch can serve as a hangout zone for evening relaxation with friends and space for romantic dinners.
Revive Old Furniture for Outdoor Use
You can enjoy nature’s touch at home by touching up old furniture for outdoor use. The yard and balcony at home can appear like a resort’s when there’s outdoor furniture at strategic places. Bamboo chairs, farm table, recliners, the couch on your patio can add outdoor loungers to your home. Usually, a holiday resort put guests in romantic and relaxation moods because of the natural ambience. Leather upholstery on outdoor couches and loungers are more durable than fabric that will readily absorb moisture and fogs.
