A holiday is always a good idea, but it isn’t always feasible. With work or business and family to manage, there’s rarely time to drive to a Perth hotel or resort and relax. Fortunately, though, you don’t have to pack your bags and go far just to enjoy time with family and recharge. You can do it right in the comfort of your home.
Take a look at these three simple ways to turn your home into a mini holiday sanctuary:
For the outdoor area:
It’s never a complete holiday experience when you’re not able to bathe in the sun and hang out by the pool. Spruce up your outdoor space with the installation of a small fibreglass pool. Your Perth property will instantly look appealing, and your backyard will become more than a spot to have your morning coffee or cup of tea.
You can also install a pergola to serve as a canopy for al fresco dining, which some resorts feature. Serve breakfast buffet for the family on a weekend morning to complete the “hotel dining” experience.
For the bedroom:
There’s a reason almost all hotel beds are white. They’re exquisite and relaxing. So make the change and swap your dark bed linens for an elegant white. Add duvet covers, throw pillows and faux fur spread across the bed and it will instantly create that hotel-room vibe. For your window treatments, choose ceiling-to-floor draperies, another hotel room signature. And of course, don’t forget, switch off your alarm clock before sleeping so you can stay in bed as long as you like.
For the bathroom:
You know why you look so good when you see yourself in hotel bathrooms? Lighting. Hotel bathrooms are strategic when it comes to lighting. And you should, too, if you’re turning your house into a holiday sanctuary. Maximise natural light by opening up windows and painting the fixtures white. Install rectangular wall lamps on each side of your mirrors. Then, add recessed lights for that glowy effect. For that much-needed bathroom relaxation, go for a candlelit bath.
You don’t have to run to the book the nearest hotel or head to a resort to spend a relaxing holiday with the family. You can transform your home to create a luxurious bit of holiday without the luxurious price.
