When it comes to decorating your vacation home it is critical to give thought to the emotional feel you desire to create and not aesthetic appeal only. The word vacation itself implies getting away, vacating your normal environment in order to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing experience.
This home away from home should be designed with these goals in mind and is achievable with a well thought out plan. A great design will include an open floor plan that showcases ease of interior and exterior movement, an abundance of natural light and a central gathering space for eating and entertaining.
The kitchen design should include multiple task stations that make it easy for family and friends to prepare meals and snacks. Personalizing your kitchen appliances is done by placing refrigeration drawers, dishwashers, microwaves and even coffee and charging stations in separate locations within the kitchen to manage needs comfortably.
Outdoor kitchens for vacation homes are being designed fully equipped for storing, prepping, grilling and enjoying a meal without relying on your interior kitchen.
Color themes also impact the emotional feel of your vacation home by inviting relaxation, fun and spontaneity. This is achievable by taking your cues from nature. The colors of your surroundings can be brought into your home, placed on the walls, in the fabric, flooring, furnishings and accessories.
If your vacation home is coastal outdoor showers are a must and some are designed with access to the home. Bathrooms should provide ease of use for multi-generational users and designed with aging in mind.
Enjoy creating your perfect get-a-way!
