With the hectic hustle of everyday life, a vacation seems like an ideal escape from the usual routine. By simply revamping your back and/or front yard, it can result in you having that dream vacation feel throughout your year, without ever leaving the comfort of your home.
From foliage to fire pits, there are so many ways for you to increase the value of your home and have the vacation you always dreamed of! For the wilderness lovers, what could bring more nostalgia than your own fire pit? Having the ability to enjoy the night sky while cuddled up by a fire is an amazing option, and can easily be achieved by installing a fire pit in your own backyard. This can also add value to your home since it is a feature piece that many people may not have.
For the adventurers who love the tranquility of being near a body of water, there is a way to have that serenity from your own home: a pond or a water feature. The benefits span way beyond being appealing to the eye, or the soothing sound of flowing water. It again adds value to your home by being that “standout” feature that many homes don’t have. It also attracts wildlife to make your home more of a dream oasis!
For the climbers and hikers, why not bring part of the mountain to your home? Decorative boulders are a great addition to your landscape, and are a low maintenance feature piece for any yard! Not only do they make great accents that spice up a plain or boring landscape, they can also be used to hide property eyesores or elements that can’t be moved (such as an irrigation pump or cable box).
And finally, for the luxurious foodie, the grand outdoor kitchen, Pizza Oven or BBQ with an island bar. Installing an outdoor kitchen would make it easier to clean after making a large family meal, while adding another feature area to your home. The number of BBQ’s would increase, along with the value of your home!
There are so many ways to create your own dream vacation in your own home. Stop dreaming about your dream vacation, and invest in making your house a home that you dream about coming home to!
