It seems we are spending the majority of our time sitting in
traffic, chasing the kids from one activity to another or finishing up one
project after another at work only to get up the next day and do it all over
again. It is so important that our homes feel like more than just a roof over
our heads. One of the best gifts you can give your family and yourself, is to
create a relaxing environment to come back to at the end of each day. Spending
the time and money to make your home relaxing will have endless benefits to
your family. A relaxing home can quickly become a money saver when you skip the
out of town traffic of for a stay-cation in the comfort of your own home. Here
are a few suggestions to make your house the most relaxing place you know.

Backyard Bliss
One of the most popular trends in houses right now is
outdoor living. As you begin the process of that hot tub, don’t forget the
grill and patio furniture. Grilling and cooking outdoors can bring the whole
family (and hungry neighbors) running toward the savory smell. Right now is a
great time to add some outdoor furniture and create a sitting area right on
your back porch.
Lose the Junk
Clutter creates chaos. Get rid of the things you don’t need.
Clean out a closet and make a donation or have a garage sale and use the money
for your backyard project. You may be shocked at what is hiding in those
closets. Whether it is hidden treasure or trash, there may be a better home for
it in someone else’s house.
Hot Tub Time
Somehow the stress of the day seems to melt away as soon as
you settle into a hot tub. It is a great way to unwind alone or with the family
or friends. The benefits are twofold. Not only will you be able to enjoy the
hot tub any time you like, it is a great feature to have if you ever decide to
sell. Consider finding a hot tub dealer in Reno to get started on completely
customizing your relaxation.
Pillow Talk
An inexpensive way create a relaxing home is to make your
bedroom a retreat. A new bedspread or adding new decorative pillows may be just
change you need to feel a little more peace as you turn out the lights at
night. From a designer comforter set to a bed in a bag, fresh bedding can do
wonders to make a room feel like a retreat. Turn off the television and take
some herbal tea and let the dreaming begin!
Paint the Town…Or At
Least The House
We’ve all seen the dramatic reveal on those decorating
shows. They all say the most bang for the buck comes from fresh paint. Hardware
and paint stores can help with paint colors. Let them know you are looking for
a relaxing change. The beauty of spending money on paint is that it is an
investment in your home.
Soak Away the Stress
The bathroom is a great place in the house to relax. With a
few simple changes you can create a spa like environment you may not want to
leave! Seek out your favorite bubble bath or bath oil. Don’t forget the
fragrant candles. Every spa has great towels and robes and your home spa should
too. It is a treat you can indulge in every day.
From a hot tub to a soak in the tub there are many ways to
create a relaxing environment for yourself and your family. We all deserve a
place to come home to where the troubles of the day are left at the door. The
