June is recognized as National Homeownership Month, making it the perfect time to make a few upgrades to your home. There’s great value in owning a home, and even more so when you’ve made it into the perfect retreat where you can feel safe, relaxed, and at complete ease. Having a place of your own where you can raise your family, escape from the regular stresses of the outside world and just make memories of your own is truly priceless. 

Now is the perfect time to find ways in which you can make your home more welcoming, whether you’re adding a pool, hot tub, sauna, or even a new patio set! Read on to see why investing in your home this month will help you fall in love with your home once again.

Health, Wellness & Relaxation
Our lives have been completely upturned these past few years, and the new normal has brought about a bit more stress than we’ve previously experienced. By adding a custom poolscape, hot tub, or sauna, you’re making a commitment to regular health and wellness. There are many health benefits to adding a swim in a pool, soaking in a hot tub, or sauna bath to your daily routine. And having access to them 24/7 in the comfort of your own home makes them even more beneficial.

From low-impact water exercises in the pool to 20-minute soaks in the hot tub, you’re giving your body a chance to release stress while putting less strain on your muscles due to the buoyancy of the water. Enjoying the sunshine also means more serotonin in your body, as well as vitamin D. And if you’re healing from an injury, water exercises in both the pool and hot tub can help you strengthen your muscles. It’s time to focus on you this year and give yourself the tools necessary to improve your health and wellness.

Save Money With Staycations
Traveling is hit or miss these days. While many people are itching to get out of the house, many more are realizing the joy being home brings and choose to stay local. Sure, some may want to venture to new places, but others are opting to create a beautiful custom oasis right in their backyard rather than plan elaborate vacations that carry the risk of being canceled. With so many different ways to design a gorgeous outdoor living space, you’re sure to be able to create a space that embodies both relaxation and resort. 

Increase Your Property Value

Home prices are on the rise, and homes that have pools or hot tubs are even more so. Prospective home buyers are looking for turnkey homes that have all the amenities ready to use. A pool can increase the property value and raise the final price. You might be able to add 5 to 7 percent of the home’s value because of the pool. Keep in mind that results will vary based on market conditions, demand, and where you live. Everyone loves a good pool, and it might make the difference between selling the home and not.

The Perfect Entertainment Centerpiece
If the past few years have shown us anything, it’s that nurturing relationships matter, whether it’s with family or friends. Owning a pool or hot tub offers many options for entertaining guests. Imagine an unforgettable pool party for your kids or grandkids. Watch the sunset with your spouse as the sky lights up with vibrant yellows, oranges, and pinks. Invite friends over to watch the big game as you grill outside and have fun. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to entertaining outside. Pools and hot tubs are a great centerpiece for fun no matter the occasion.
