Create Your Resort Living
Imagining yourself back at that last resort you went to? The good news is that you can bring a piece of the tropics inside your home and recreate that relaxing atmosphere whenever you choose. Here are some ways to bring that island spirit into your house wherever you live.
GREEN IS YOUR GO TO
Add some palm trees and other dark green plants to your interior space. Palm-like plants can give the impression of a tropical setting. Alternatively, for something that requires less maintenance, you can achieve this by placing some clippings of foliage in a clear vase. Be generous and you can create that oasis!
You can also bring that pop of deeply saturated green in your furniture. A splash of vibrant green, especially with sumptuous velvet upholstery, creates a tropical atmosphere, while leafy prints on the walls take you away to the tropics.
USE TIMBER LOOK TILE
The use of timber tiles throughout a home can create that resort feeling, bringing warmth, elegance and relaxation. The timber tile in any form when used in a grand scale, paired with high set ceilings, large windows, indoor greenery, touches of pastel colours, all sets off a feeling of tranquillity.
For outdoor areas, the exterior finish of timber porcelain tile spanning over a large patio area and the pool surrounding oozes resort living. With the addition of sun lounges, wicker furniture and a BBQ area, the timber tile is the perfect solution for durability whilst creating that warm, calm natural surround.
Timber porcelain tile still delivers that ultimate resort living while being easy to maintain in comparison to real wood flooring, whether you go with traditional warm timber colours or more modern greys.
CONNECT TO THE OUTDOORS
It’s easy to feel like you’re on holiday year-round when you have an open view. Open up your living areas whether through a sliding glass door, a set of French doors to let the breeze in, or bi-fold windows that create a cabana effect.
Kitchens that may open out to the outdoor area as a servery are another current trend in kitchen design. This truly helps to create a resort feel, as it enables the homeowner to prepare food inside the kitchen while still having the impression that they are a part of the outdoor entertainment area. An outdoor bar is also popular idea.
