As we approach Valentine’s Day and love is in the air, do you love your home? Your home is a sanctuary, the place you share your love with your family and friends and it should have features that you love, that make life less complicated.
Here is a look at things we love in a custom home and a few things that will add joy to the lives of your loved ones! Simple to complex items that can bring happiness to your heart not only on Valentine’s Day, but everyday!
A Custom Home Built with Love
A space to cook with your spouse, your children, your friends. Food and love are linked; preparing food together is a wonderful, special way to spend your Valentine’s Day. Celebrate with a home cooked meal created in your custom space.
The Dining Room:
Set the table with your favorite dishes, china, pottery, whatever you love! Add candles and flowers, even a love note for your Valentine! Your dining room says romance with the right lighting and ambiance. Don’t forget that special bottle of wine that you brought up from your home wine cellar.
This is a sacred space, and whether the master bedroom is for a couple or a single person, this room should create a feeling of relaxation and refuge from the world. When creating your custom home, the master bedroom should be thoughtfully and carefully planned out so that it does just that. Today there are endless ideas to make this room your personal shelter. Fireplaces with remote controls, wine bars, sitting areas, coffee bars… the ideas are endless and the results will leave you with a space you love and want to escape to everyday.
Along with the master bedroom, the master bathroom is just as important. Luxurious showers and steam showers, soaking tubs, instant hot water, his and her vanities and wet closets are all part of the options for a spa-like setting in your own home.
Of course when your custom home is on a lake, the addition of a hot tub and sauna are a must and a luxury that you will love year-round. But Valentine’s Day is a perfect day to enjoy either! Indoor saunas from lower level walkouts make a perfect way to end a cold winter day, as well as a swim on a cool summer night. Hot tubs as well are a comfort and place for gathering with your loved one.
Happy Valentine’s Day from everyone at Colby Construction. If you are ready to fall in love (with your home!), or create a new custom home that you love, contact us.
