Park City is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. People come from all around to enjoy our fantastic city’s natural beauty and adventure. Many also come to relax and escape the stress of day-to-day life. Your luxury home can provide that retreat from a hectic world for you and your guests. Adding certain elements and features to your home will help you create a retreat that rivals a day at the spa.
The smell of your home will be one of the first things you and your guests notice as you walk in. You can immediately smell a home that is poorly ventilated, has water damage, or needs a good cleaning!
Finding a scent for your home that naturally brings a relaxing and light feel is a game changer. The best way to accomplish this is with an oil diffuser. We recommend getting a few essential oils–such as lavender, peppermint, and citrus–and trying them out until you find a smell that matches the feel you want for your home. The same thing can be done with candles (just be sure to blow them out when you leave home.)
Lighting is one of the most critical aspects of the overall ambiance of your home. Too bright, and you feel like you’re at the dentist’s office getting your teeth checked. Too dark, and you feel like you’re in a poorly lit 80s crime movie.
The right amount of ceiling light, natural light, and warmth from lamps and sconces can help create a positive and relaxing atmosphere. If you want to take your lighting up a notch, make sure your electrician puts dimmers on as many of the ceiling lights as possible. This will help you change the mood and brightness of the room as the amount of natural light changes throughout the day.
Bathroom decor may seem like a waste of money, but a welcoming and comfortable bathroom will help you and your guests relax.The bathroom is intimate and should feel like a safe and calming place to freshen up. Details to pay attention to in the bathroom include favorably scented hand soap, fresh & soft hand towels, a lovely flowing faucet with a clean sink, and readily available necessities for men and women.
Indoor and outdoor plants are a great way to add color, life and freshness to your home. Several plants are proven to reduce stress–peppermint, chamomile, lavender, jasmine, chrysanthemum, gerber–all have stress-reducing and therapeutic properties that make your home a sanctuary of rest and beauty. A mix of plants inside and out creates a natural feel and flow.
