Who doesn’t want their vacation to be a flawless experience? Unfortunately, what with all the preparation, time spent on the road, and the stress of trying to see and do everything in a few days, vacations are less relaxing than they should be for many of us. Instead of stressing out while you’re on your spring vacation this year, take a moment to sit down and plan a few things to make sure your mobile home getaway provides an enviable vacation.
Prioritize your comfort
The most important part of taking a trip to your vacation getaway is your comfort. So, instead of going for a practical design, think about what you’ll enjoy and what will make you the most comfortable during your vacation. What are some of your favorite activities? What do you do to relax? These are some things you should think about while you’re turning your mobile home retreat into a fantastic vacation experience.
Everyone needs a good television setup
Although your vacation will be full of various activities, there’ll be a night or two where you’ll just want to relax and watch a good movie. The best way to have a cozy movie night is to set up your television in your bedroom, so you can watch a movie from the comfort of your bed.
Keep good snacks around
What is a good movie night – or an entire vacation, for that matter – without some good snacks? Fill up your cabinets and refrigerator with your favorite snacks so that they’re readily available for movie night, a trip to the beach, or a hike. That way, you won’t have to make extra trips to the closest grocery store.
Now you can use that impractical furniture that you love
Maybe it’s a giant bean bag that doesn’t make sense for your living room layout, or perhaps it’s a unique bookshelf that won’t quite fit in your bedroom. Whatever it is, that one piece of impractical furniture you want to use in your home can be a part of your getaway mobile home instead.
A giant bean bag sounds like a great place to take a quick afternoon nap, while a huge bookshelf will hold all the books you’ve been wanting to read for years. This is your chance to choose the furniture that makes you feel relaxed and creative, even if it’s not space-saving or efficient.
Create your personal getaway home style
Of course, part of feeling relaxed and restful in your getaway mobile home includes giving it a personal touch.
Use your favorite colors
A great way to make a getaway home restful is to utilize your favorite colors in its interior design. Additionally, you should include colors that are naturally calming (any shade of blue is a good choice.) Use creativity and mix it up as much as you want – you don’t have to please anyone but yourself with your color scheme!
Be unique but simple with your decorations
Choosing decorations that you like will give your getaway home a friendly, familiar feel that you’ll enjoy. However, don’t allow your space to become cluttered – a clean and organized home reduces stress and will keep you feeling relaxed and cozy. Additionally, a clean, orderly home won’t give you the urge to clean while you’re supposed to be enjoying your time on vacation.
Plan for visitors
You never know when you’ll have company during your vacation, so it’s a good idea to keep your getaway home ready for visitors.
Make your television portable
Which is better, movie night with friends or movie night by yourself? Fortunately, you can have both during your vacation if you make your television portable by using a portable television stand. That way, you’ll be able to watch movies alone from your bed or have a movie night with your friends in the living room.
Stock up on sleeping bags and maybe an air mattress or two
If you’re planning on having your guests stay overnight, you should invest in some sleeping bags at the very least – or, if you’re feeling generous, a few air mattresses. A sleeper sofa is also a good choice for a getaway home.
Use furniture for storage
You and your guests will need to store clothes, toiletries, food, and other supplies. To accommodate for this, purchase several dressers (or other storage furniture of your choice) and you’ll be able to keep everything pretty well organized. Ideally, you’ll allot each person a certain number of drawers for their possessions.
Most importantly, keep your vacation stress-free
Rest, relaxation, and fun should always be the focus of your yearly getaway. Of course, planning is pretty important too, but just keep in mind that all the preparation you’re doing doesn’t need to be stressful. Vacations only happen every once in a while, so remember that the most important thing is to keep your vacation getaway stress-free. With a little bit of creativity and organization, you’ll be getting all the rest you’ve been needing this year!
