Unfortunately for many of us these grand designs remain just that - fantasies that stay far removed from reality and that never come into fruition. This is a big shame however, when actually there are many ways you could get more from your homes and all kinds of projects you could put into place that would make your home into something much more exciting but not necessarily cost you the Earth or require any particular skills that regular building contractors can't provide. Here we will look at a few of those ideas that you can make into a reality.
Many of us love the idea of having a balcony and why not? This gives you a way to get some fresh air and sun from the comfort of your upstairs bedroom, and at the same time provides you with a great view and lots of light. It can be a great place to stand and think for a while, or perfect for having a romantic meal with a partner over a candle-lit meal. You've probably thought of getting room extensions, so why not just get a balcony instead which actually requires considerably less work (as long as your building lends itself to the project)?
When it comes to decadent homes, the bathroom often stands out as one of the most impressive areas and will be more like a home spa than just a bath and a shower. Using a hot tub you will have the perfect place to unwind after a day at work, and you might also want to include a sauna or a steam room to make your bathroom the envy of anyone who comes to visit. Note that hot tubs are great outdoors as well where they can offer perfect respite from the cold.
When it comes to bodies of water in our home there, there are few additions quite so exciting as a swimming pool that will make your home perfect for throwing parties, getting some exercise or just relaxing after a rough day at work.
Every woman wants a walk in wardrobe and it's also a highly practical way to keep your furniture and belongings. This is something relatively small and easy to find too, and there's no reason not to go for it and get building.
Rather than making yet another spare room, why not do something more interesting with your extra space and put up a home theatre? This way everyone can watch films on a huge screen and in a room that's conducive to focussing on the action - you will become host for every big sporting event and every new film release.
