Creating the Perfect Holiday Home

When it comes to holidays and travelling many people are always looking for that new destination to explore. However a rising option for many is creating the perfect holiday home, which they can visit throughout the year. This is a great choice as it keeps the cost of a holiday down in the long run, and enables you to get away a lot more often. Here we cover some of the best ways to transform a property into that perfect holiday home you desire.

The Space

The first important step is getting your head around how much available space there is. This means working out how many people could sleep in it, and you can then work out the living space around this. If you are looking at a larger home due to having a big family for example, then a good option to make the most of the available space would be the open plan living approach, which is becoming far more popular in recent times. This could also mean you could rent it out or use it yourself for wedding and family parties that require the big space.

Subtle Style

Colour is very crucial when it comes to renovation, both from scratch or just when updating. Calm and neutral colours such as cream and beige are a growing trend at present and provide a fantastic look for most homes. Then adding colour with cushions, rugs and curtains can result in a great overall look. This can also be done through doors around the home, such as the ones here, which can make a very positive addition to the overall look of the home.


The most important aspect to any home is the lighting. There is no better way to transform a room to a modern look than adding some light. The first point should be looking to add more natural light, such as through replacing curtains for example. These could be updated to blinds or even shutters to not only make the room brighter, but this will make it appear bigger.

Luxury touch

If you are looking to create that luxury getaway then adding features such as a hot tub is a fantastic option. In doing so this is also likely to lure more people to book your accommodation. Of course the property should also include WI-FI and TV with up to date offerings.
