Thinking of some renovation? There are probably about a million things you could add to your home, ranging from the expensive to the relatively affordable. The following are what we think are worthy home improvements that you may consider getting.
Get A Spa On Your Deck
There’s nothing more relaxing than having a soak in bubbly warm water, and doing it at home will make it convenient. Luckily, inflatable hot tub models available nowadays are very affordable and it doesn’t take much to set them up and get them running. There are even many eco-friendly options that won’t cost you too much in energy bills every month.
You can use the spa for barbeque parties in the summer, or even during the winter where everyone wants to warm up in the water. Just make sure your deck can handle the weight of the hot tub (or go to https://www.orangecountydeckbuilder.com/ to hire a deck builder), and you’re good to go. It will add to the aesthetics of your home as well.
A Vegetable Garden
If you’ve never had a home grown tomato, then you’re missing a lot. You don’t need to get a compex vegetable garden, but a small patch in the backyard is usually enough for most people. Even if you don’t have much of a green thumb, you will find that many vegetables are easier to grow than you think. Once you harvest them, you’ll enjoy the fruits of your labor and a simple salad will taste exceptionally good.
Kids particularly enjoy learning where their food comes from, so you can use the vegetable garden as an educational tool. Add different herbs so you can always have them on hand, and don’t hesitate to add a few strawberries when they are in season too. Your meals will taste better, and you can be confident that the vegetables were grown organically – because you grew them yourself!
A Fully Functional Basement Home Gym
Stop spending money on monthly subscriptions to the gym that you are always skipping. Having a home gym means it is much more convenient – making it difficult to skip your workouts. Also, you can get the equipment that you know you’ll use, and skip equipment that you tend to skip more often than not. It doesn’t need to be an elaborate setup, either. For some people, a full set of free weights and a treadmill or spinning cycle can be enough. Make sure you add a TV to your gym, so you can watch a movie while you run – you’ll get through the workout without ever noticing it. Also, a mini fridge (like the ones in hotel rooms) can be useful to keep water close by.
These home improvements will not only improve your home but also your quality of life. Especially given the amount of time we spend at home these days (due to the pandemic) it doesn’t hurt to make sure you have everything you need at home. If you had these in your home at the start of the pandemic, quarantining would have been a breeze!
