Staycation: How to Renovate Your Home to Create a Resort Style

Everyone loves a holiday at a luxury resort however there are good reasons why you may choose to stay at home this Christmas and new year season. While we may choose to limit our travel this year, there is so much for us to enjoy locally. You may also choose to invest in your own home so you can enjoy it for many years ahead. Rather than spend all your savings on a one-off vacation.

Whatever the reason you choose to stay at home this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy resort-style comfort. We’d love to help you transform your home into an oasis, setting yourself up for the perfect staycation for many years ahead and for all seasons. The following DIY tips might help you give your home that vacation feel.

Bring Hotel Style to Your Bedroom

Have you noticed how well you sleep when you’re on vacation? Creating a soothing atmosphere that’s conducive to sleep is a great way to create your own oasis at home. Wicker bedroom furniture including headboards, night tables, dressers and accessories are all great options. You could also use dimmer lights, add soft pillows and burn incense. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you drift off to sleep.

Get Your Resort Bathroom

Luxury resorts have amazing bathrooms. While they’re hard to replicate at home, you can bring that same serenity by removing clutter, possibly painting the walls and lighting scented candles. To keep the bathroom looking, clean and tidy like a resort, try wicker cabinets and hampers so your household items all have their place. You can also finish off the styling with mirrors, shelves, stools and tissue boxes to suit your taste.

Bring the Outside In

While this time of year is a too cold to spend too much time outside, there are ways to bring some of the outdoors experience inside. Vacation accommodation is often full of exotic flowers and plants. Why not buy some exotic looking plants that are suitable for our climate? Not only will they brighten your décor, they’ll also help purify the air. Why not try some Resort Style Bean Bags or look to add some colorful cushions and accessories to compliment your wicker furniture?

Setup the Fire Pit

As mentioned, the outdoors might be too cold to enjoy at this time of year however, installing a fire pit can be a great focal point for your backyard. When the weather starts to warm up and you want to get outside and enjoy your yard, you’ll be all ready to go. A fire can stir up wonderful memories and bring warmth to your evenings. Whether the pit is made of stone or cast-iron, it’s a great way to spend time with friends and enjoy the night sky. Don’t forget to roast a few marshmallows while you’re at it.

Rejuvenate the deck

If your backyard is looking a little unkept, if might be time for a makeover. If you have a deck, nothing kills your vacation buzz more than a stains and splinters. If it’s quite damaged, it may need a good sanding to restore it to its former glory. If it’s not too bad, a wash of the boards and applying a new stain and sealer might be all it takes. It may take a couple of days to cure however, it’s well worth the wait.

Build a Fountain in Your Garden

Building a fountain may be easier than you think. With the right know-how, a few large stones, a pump and some water, you can have the soothing sounds of a brook right in your backyard. If DIY is not your thing, you can buy a small fountain from your hardware store or garden centre. Either way, you’ll enjoy the serenity of your garden oasis in the warmer months.
