Sunshine and nature in bloom are forecasted for us Vancouver West Coasters. What better time to bring vacation cheer into your Vancouver home and patio? We believe the best way to achieve this is by updating your décor, incorporating nature, and utilizing space wisely. Look around your home. Does it feel a bit stuffy? Are there many dark colours? Do the windows provide adequate sunlight? Now is the time to lighten up and bring spring into your Vancouver home.reVISION contractors can work with you to help brighten up your space. Start off small: replace heavy draperies with luminous sheers, opt for white or pastel towels and linens, spring clean any clutter. Remove tablecloths for a light and airy feel. Incorporate baskets in your bathroom to hold towels and magazines. Baskets also work well in the kitchen for fruit or small appliances. Fresh flowers make any space more welcoming, from bathroom to hallway. If budget allows, consider bigger changes: open up your space by removing a wall or adding windows in places starved of sunlight. Seek out advice from Vancouver contractors to explore more options.Still not getting that vacation-feel? Think outside the box. Consider options in your back yard or front porch. Every successful summer Vancouver home boasts an entertainment area. Ensure everyone feels pampered by including an outdoor kitchen complete with bar and lounge area. Remember to include heat lamps, awning, lattice or partial roofing to prepare for unpredictable weather: this also gives you an entertainment area that works year round.Remember, space is never an issue. No matter the size of your Vancouver home or backyard, you can create a memorable space. Whether you want an outdoor escape or a more glamorous indoor view, a Vancouver contractor can help make your dream a reality. Only problem you may encounter is a desire never to leave your comfortable new oasis.
