After several years of diligently saving money, I’m nearly ready to purchase my first home. Because I’ve been thinking about buying a home for so long, I know exactly what I want my house to look like. I desire a place that has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. I also need a quiet space to set up my home office in. I want a massive, walk-in closet in my master bedroom. My master bathroom needs to have double vanities, a tiled, walk-in shower, and a Jacuzzi tub. On this blog, I hope you will discover how to set priorities during your new home search. Enjoy!
If you're in the process of having a new home built, and you are someone who takes their health seriously, and is really into fitness, then it's a great time to plan some custom features for your home. Now is the time to incorporate them into the design. You can speak with the home builders and have them work with an architect to design exactly the layout you want. It's always better to get something done during the initial build rather than try and retroactively incorporate it into a finished build. Here's three things consider.
An Indoor Lap Pool
If you have the luxury of having a really large home being built. then you should definitely consider having an indoor lap pool built. These are perfect if you love to swim, but don't like heading to the gym every time you want to do laps. These indoor lap pools are long and narrow, and can either be designed into a semi-open space (such as a glassed in room that leads to your back yard) or they can be in a room without any outdoor access.
A Dedicated Room For A Home Gym
This one is a bit simpler than a large lap pool, but it's still something really nice to have. Instead of having your treadmill in the corner of your bedroom, or in the basement, you should have a room built that will function solely as a gym. This means the floor can be padded (to help with dropped weights), special air vents can be installed (so that the air doesn't get stale) and proper lighting and mirrors are setup. You might also want to have the home builders add special insulation to the walls. This can help prevent sounds from leaking out to the rest of the house. This is great if you like to blare music while you workout and you don't want to bother the rest of the family.
Your Own Private Sauna
A sauna is not just a relaxing experience, there are quite a few health benefits, but if you don't live near a gym that has one, you should really consider building one into your new home.In fact, many people who have access to a public sauna prefer to have a private one. This might be for hygienic reasons, or because they prefer more privacy. Either way, it's something you should consider if you like the benefit of dry heat. You can have a special room built right next to your bathroom and design it in nice kiln dried cedar wood. This way you can enjoy the sauna whenever you like, and don't have to worry about other people sitting down next to you and disturbing your relaxation.
