5 Low-Cost, High-Impact Vacation Home Improvement Ideas

Your home away from home should be your oasis – a place you can escape to when you need to get away from the hectic busyness of your everyday life. When you're there, you want to relax, take in the scenery and enjoy the vacation home that you've worked hard for. But every so often, it comes time to update and upgrade your home.

To keep your second home and the updating process stress-free, you need vacation home ideas that are quick and involve very little effort. The following are some simple home improvement ideas to help you upgrade your vacation home without exerting a considerable amount of time and money.

1. Upgrade The TV

Older televisions can be bulky and require whole entertainment centers to blend into the surroundings of a room. Flat screen LCD and plasma televisions, on the other hand, offer a crystal-clear HD picture while freeing up valuable floor space.

2. Replace The Bedding

New bedding and the accompanying accoutrements can not only liven up the bedrooms, they also provide you and your guests with top-of-the-line comfort. Consider purchasing new pillows at least once a year, and new linens and comforters once every two years.

3. Update The Lighting

Lighting is an underappreciated aspect of a home that is easy to fix up and can make everything in a room pop in just the right way. Updating your lighting can be as minimal as installing new light fixtures or as thorough as upgrading the wiring in your home. You’re only limited by your own imagination.

4. Add A Floating Swimming Dock

Vacation home situated on a body of water? Swimming and fishing are an integral part of enjoying your waterfront home. Look into adding a convenient floating swimming dock so friends and family can enjoy the water safely all season long. Floating swimming docks from Jet Dock offer the modularity, portability and non-slip surface you need in a quality swimming dock for your vacation home.

5. Upgrade Your Boat Lift

If your vacation home is also where you dock your boat, consider a Jet Dock boat lift. With our various boat lifts for sale, there's no need to keep your boat in the water during boating season where it’s susceptible to damage and erosion.
