Staycation Heaven! Turn Your Home Into a Staycation Paradise




When it’s time to take some time off from work and other such responsibilities, a lot of people jump to the conclusion that they need to hop on a plane and go abroad for an amazing vacation. And sure, that can result in some amazing and relaxing adventures. But let’s face it: sometimes going somewhere new for a vacation can induce its own unique stresses that we’d rather not deal with!


So what other options do you have? Well, there’s taking time off of work and staying at home instead of going to pastures new. You may think that staying at home defeats the point, but face it: there are few places on Earth more relaxing that one’s home.

Set up a restful space


You should create a little ‘nook’ for yourself as a retreat from other areas of the home. This doesn’t need to be its own room, of course – a small section of the living room with especially comfy furniture, a good temperature, and pleasant lighting is enough! Use this space to kick back with a good book – reading will help your relax while keeping your brain nice and active.


Boost your entertainment


One of the benefits of going somewhere exotic for a vacation is that there’s usually a plethora of things to do. This isn’t always true with a staycation – but you needn’t feel guilt about simply taking the time to catch up on some television shows and great movies! They’re great ways to unwind, so consider getting a Netflix subscription, or using a Blu-Ray rental service to ensure you can get the latest films that don’t usually show up on streaming services for a long time. Consider boosting your equipment with new speakers or bigger screens if you’re feeling indulgent!



Upgrade the furniture


If you really want to relax and feel comfortable during a staycation at home, then it stands to reason that you need to ensure the furniture is as comfortable as possible! Everything from luxurious new living room furniture to bedroom furniture from Cuckooland should be considered. Uncomfortable or worn out furniture can simply increase stress levels, and may not be good your spine and hips in the long run.



Make your garden luxurious


Of course, the aim of a staycation isn’t to stay inside your home all the time. Staycations still include heading outside to local areas of fun and relaxation. But you needn’t venture too far to go to a luxurious outdoor location if you set your garden up right! Adding some decking is great for those who are really ambitious, but others may prefer to simply revamp it by doing some gardening.


Turn your bathroom into a spa

Don’t underestimate your bathroom when it comes to the creation of a relaxing haven. At the end of the day, there are few rooms in your home more relaxing than the bathroom. Thankfully, we’ve already got an article for those who want their bathroom to feel like a personal spa!
