Ah, it’s that time of the year when we show those closest to our hearts how much they mean to us. Sure, candy, teddy bears and romantic dinners are classic gestures, but, we at Pink Verbena wanted to offer up a few Valentine’s Day Home Improvement ideas that we think will earn you a smooch or two around the house.
Dim the Lights
Nothing sets the mood more than lighting. Why not add a wireless personal light systems like this one from Philips to your home? Philips offers an impressive array of smart light bulbs and lighting kits. Their Hue Wireless Dimming Kit is AWESOME and doesn’t require any installation. The kit comes with 1 smart bulb and 1 switch/remote (you can mount the switch to a wall if you choose). Simply screw in the bulb and use the remote to turn on the light…as bright or as low as you want. You create the ambiance.
Hang Out Together
Nothing says I love you more than spending time together. It’s easy to fall into routines where each person retreats into separate areas of the home. Try creating a shared space you both can enjoy. One of our local favorites, Custom Carolina Hanging Beds, makes some of the best outdoor seating we’ve ever seen. Imagine enjoying a nice glass of wine with your lovebug as you both cuddle-up on one of these comfy beds. You can also consider installing a classic porch swing.
Enjoy Some Good Clean Fun Together
Been banished to the guest bath due to space constraints? Here’s one solution…a Double Shower! After this bathroom remodel is complete, you two can occupy the same space when preparing for work in the morning. Local mainstays like Moluf’s Kitchen and Bath Supply of Charleston offer a tremendous selection of bathroom fixtures. Their online showroom gives you plenty of ideas on where to start your project. Check ’em out.
Spend Quality Down Time with One Another
Take a good long look at your mattress and bedding. How long have you had that mattress? How old is that comforter? It may be time to invest some new wares for the boudoir. It has been said that you should replace your mattress every 7 years. If you think your bed has seen better days, you should try to locate a quality mattress retailer like the folks at Charleston Mattress. There, you can pose specific questions to a professional that’s sure to pair you and your honey with the perfect mattress. Next stop, bedding. A classic down comforter adds a a super cozy touch to a new bed. Take a look at this neutral tone option below. Try one or both of these upgrades on Valentine’s Day and watch the sparks fly!
Rekindle the Flame
We here in the Lowcountry love enjoying our outdoor living spaces. Fire pits are just one of many ways you could enhance your yard and enjoy a special Valentine’s Day with someone you love. We wrote a blog post in the Fall on how to build your own fire pit. Give it a glance and see if it inspires you this weekend.
Let us know what projects you have planned for that special someone this Valentine’s Day in the comment section below.
