Maybe you have lived in the same house for years or maybe you have the opportunity to design your house from the ground up. Whatever your reason is, you are now looking for cool ideas that you can incorporate into your existing or dream home.
Here are some fantastic things that can modernize and spruce up a real estate property:
A Bowling Alley
Tired of your cold and boring basement? Why not make the space a place for you and your friends to chill in during the weekends by installing your own bowling alley right at the comforts of your own home. You can call a professional who has the experience to draft a home bowling alley design that will work with the space.
This way, instead of going out every Friday, you can invite your friends over and go bowling no matter how long you want. If you have the budget, you can even add a makeshift bar in your basement to make it the perfect place to hang out. You never have to wait long lines at the bowling alley again and, if you get drunk, you only have to go upstairs to reach your room.
Sometimes, you just want to be alone. Whether you have work and you do not want to be bothered or you have a hobby that you want to keep out of your children’s reach, having a secret room (or more) inside your home can be useful and fun. To conceal a room, instead of having a regular door, use a rotating bookshelf. That way, you can have your peace to read, paint, or whatever you want to do in private.
Your bathroom is going to feel like an expensive spa when you upgrade your shower. If you have never heard of steam showers, it involves heating water to its boiling point to produce steam that is dispersed around your body. If you have a steam shower, you enter a small space that does not allow moisture to escape. Basically, it is like being in a sauna except that you have it more often inside your own bathroom.
Having a steam shower also offers the benefits of going to a sauna. The steam can clear congested sinuses — perfect when you have a cold or the flu. It also improves circulation and helps with preventing sore muscles. There is evidence that it can lower your blood pressure, too. Moreover, warmth and steam open your pores, keeping your skin clear of blackheads and acne.
Love watching movies? Turn your backyard into an outdoor theater where you and your friends can enjoy watching your favorite movies on a larger screen. This one is easy: you need a projector and a big blank wall to screen videos. You also have the option to bring out a couch to make it feel more luxe, but laying out a couple of pillows on a large blanket can also work.
USB Wall Charger
If none of the ideas mentioned above appeals to you or you have a limited budget, then why not modernize your home by simply putting up wall outlets that accommodate USB. This is incredibly useful; an easy fixture to incorporate into your home.
These, of course, are just suggestions that you can choose to ignore or customize based on your tastes and interests. There are still many ideas out there if you do your research.
