You’ve finally bought the holiday home of your dreams – now to furnish it. After splashing out on the new place, you may now be fixed to a tight budget to help make your holiday home yours. So, we have put together this handy list on how to make your home feel completed whilst on a budget.
Invest In Storage
Budgeting the majority of your spend on storage is a wise move. Storage isn’t at the top of everyone’s to-do list, however, having good storage in place will transform your holiday home entirely. Think about hangers, shoe storage, under bed storage and plenty of cupboard space. Having a tidy holiday home to turn up to is a must, so you can spend quality time with your family without having to worry about a thing. Not only that, but storage will help minimise clutter.
To give your home that cosy feel, add fleecy throws, blankets, large cushions and not to mention snuggly pyjamas for yourself! You’ll soon be feeling at home in the evenings. If you have children, make sure to pack soft toys as well as warm slippers and dressing gowns for the whole family for that luxurious touch.
Make sure you invest in good bedding – there’s nothing like a good night’s sleep especially when you are on holiday. If you plan on visiting your holiday home all year round then make sure you have both summer and winter options so that you’re comfortable in all seasons. Good pillows are a must and adding a little lavender essential oil to your washing machine will help everyone to relax and drift off ready for the morning ahead.
Food & Drink
Make sure to stock up on your favourite tipple or even treat yourself to your favourite coffee – it’s your holiday after all. To help minimise stress, arrange for a food delivery for when you arrive so you don’t have to worry about bringing food with you.
Make sure you have plenty of things to do when the weather takes a turn for the worst or for when the nights draw in. Books, games, music and DVD’s are great for unwinding.
