Staycation Ideas: Creating Your Home as a Travel Destination
Many people’s travel plans are canceled or postponed and we don’t know when we can safely travel around the world. With all the travel restrictions and safety measures to take, traveling to other countries and cities sounds like a far future. So what can we do to go on a “vacation” this year? Here’s a simple answer – enjoy a vacation at home! Vacation at home might sound strange at first but there are many different tips and tricks to transform your home into the ultimate summer vacation destination.
Redecorate Your Living Room
Updating your living room might give the biggest change – considering the amount of time you spend every day in the living room. Rearranging your future to give a different perspective can definitely help you transform your living room and change up the decor, throws, and more. You can even add some vacation theme decor for that extra touch. Also, consider having a mini cocktail bar for you and your partner. With liquor bottles set up and glasses, you can create your own DIY functional mini bar!
Bedroom Into a Hotel Suite
We know that going to a fancy and luxurious resort is another big factor in a relaxing vacation. Easily transform your bedroom or even the guest room into a luxury hotel suite by changing up bed linens to white, crisp bed linens to give the resort vibe. Don’t forget to add a few decors to go with your desired vacation theme! Simple decors like a framed photo of the travel destination can help you change the whole atmosphere.
Recreate a Spa
Ever thought of transforming your bathroom into a spa? Create your personal oasis and set up your personal spa only designed for yourself. Make sure to tidy everything and hide your personal belongings since it will be a spa. Light up some candles and have an aroma diffuser on hand to give that spa-like feeling. Have a relaxing bath with a luxurious bath bomb, essential oils, bath salts of your choice, and splurge on a cozy robe to have in hand after the bath!
Camp in Your Backyard
Who says vacation needs to be a luxurious getaway? For all the outdoor lovers, camping is one of the best getaways. If you don’t feel comfortable going to different campsites, camping in your backyard can be a fun option. Try adding new lights to your backyard or patio to give a more cozy atmosphere along with an outdoor audio system. You can enjoy the night watching a movie in your tent with a cup of hot chocolate and your favourite snacks.
Traveling is one of the common ways people like to escape from their daily life and relax. However, with COVID-19 spreading, it’s better to be cautious about where you’re going and avoid non-essential travel. Planning a summer vacation at your home may be the ultimate solution to adapt to the new normal. Remember to stay safe and healthy everyone!
