Did you know that romance and home renovation go together like champagne and chocolate? This Valentine’s Day, we’re telling you about 5 libido-boosting home improvement projects that not only make your home a more comfortable place to live, but also help you renovate the romance at home. So, if you’re interested in taking on a home improvement project with added benefits, one of these 5 projects is sure to add spice to your happily ever after.
Upgrade Your Shower
Get rid of that old cave shower, or the outdated shower/tub combo in your master bath and replace it with a gloriously spacious walk in shower. Because nothing says, “let’s get steamy” like a shower built for two. Go with an unfrosted glass enclosure for an inspiring view, and definitely splurge on multiple showerheads. Finish it all off with gorgeous tile and good lighting to give it a sensual spa-like feeling.
Finish the Basement
If you live in a busy household full of kids and pets, it can be challenging to grab a romantic moment alone with your significant other. That’s why turning your basement into a fun, family hangout is such a great idea. It gives the kids someplace to be other than underfoot. Keep them busy with a game room, media room, or even an indoor hockey rink. Then, you might be able to steal away for a little romance …even if it’s something as simple as an uninterrupted smooch.
Add a Kitchen Island
There are numerous benefits that come from adding an island to your kitchen –they look great, they anchor the room, and they provide a nice big surface that you can use to …prep your meals on. In fact, the added surface space and storage is what really makes a new island a reno with romantic potential. That’s because adding extra storage and prep space can help clear up the clutter in your kitchen, and it’s a documented fact that clutter is bad for the libido. What, you didn’t think we were suggesting you’d use your new island for anything else, did you?
Buy a Hot Tub
Backyard hot tubs seem to naturally conjure images of love and romance. They offer a relaxing way for you to unwind and reconnect with the one you love. Just imagine coming home from a long day at work, to a steamy tub, your favourite beverage and some alone time with your significant other. Add a hot tub enclosure for more comfortable year-round enjoyment and added privacy … just in case.
Revitalize Your Bedroom
Of course, the most obvious romance-related home improvement project is to reorganize, redecorate, and possibly renovate your bedroom. Clear the clutter, slather on a new coat of paint and add some fresh, new touches to the décor. To make setting the mood even easier, install a dimmer switch for better control over the bedroom lighting …something that also comes in handy if you and your significant other have differing wakeup schedules.
