When it comes to our homes, it is fair to say that we regard them as our very own castles and kingdoms. Once you close the door on the outside world, your home is your salvation, your place to relax and be yourself in. When you buy your home this feeling multiplies, and you can start to wonder what it is you might like to do. Sure you may change the bathroom, update the kitchen, but what about those pie in the sky ideas? It just so happens that some of them are more in your reach than you think. Let’s explore some of the ideas.
The man cave
Every husband or boyfriend would live the idea of a man cave. A place for the games console, a place to watch football with their friends, leaving the living room in peace for you to what whatever you fancy. It can seem extravagant. But having a separate space, whether it’s for you or your partner, can help to give you both the time you need on your own. A converted garage, or a reception room that doesn’t have much use can be the perfect options to create this area in your home.
A cinema room
Equally, if you are thinking about converting a garage into a room that you can use, or have a reception room that doesn’t have a sue, then you could also consider creating your very own cinema room. You don’t need the big space like some people have, and in fact having expert aerial fitters fit a big TV to the wall and some comfortable seating is all you really need. The perfect snug for the whole family to enjoy.
Hot tub or swimming pool
Maybe a swimming pool seems far fetched but if you do have a large garden, what is there to say that you couldn’t have one fitted? But a more obvious choice could be a hot tub in your garden, or having a specific outbuilding or fancy shed built to house one. Many people get great use out of one, and it can be the perfect way to destress in an evening.
People who have spare bedrooms or again the garage area may want to use these areas for a home workout gym. While you do invest initially in the equipment, it can be a great saving in the long term on things like gym memberships and fees for classes.
Finally, while it used to be the dream to have an ensuite, many houses that are built from new now offer this in the master bedroom, so perhaps the dream has developed a little bit. A dressing area or room can be what a woman dreams of these days. A big walk in wardrobe with a seating area and. Place to do your makeup and hair. It can actually be possible with spare bedrooms in your home, or if you are adding an extension for a master bedroom, for example over the top of as garage, then adding this into the floorplan is easier than you may think.
Let’s hope this has made those pie in the sky ideas a little more in reach.
