Unique features I want in my home

Since I was a child, I’ve dreamt about what I wanted my future house to be like. My best friend and I would spend a lot of time drawing a floor plan of our future homes. Often, they were unrealistic big with a room for everything you could imagine.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to realise that my expectations were a little.. out of reach. But I still like to dream about what key features my future house will have. Here are a few.

Free standing bath.

A minimalistic bathroom is a must, white and clean. One key feature I’d like is a stand-alone bath. I’ve found that a good bathroom suite on a budget aren’t actually that hard to come by, though. Although I might have to settle for a corner bath rather than my dream of a stand-alone one.

Home gym.

I’m sure most of you know I’m a regular gym goer. I love the idea of a home gym! Gone will be the days of not being able to get on the squat rack or watt bike because the place is too busy! I do worry about productivity as I’m sure working out around other people motivates me, but it would make life much easier to be able to work out at home in my own space!

Home bar.

I workout so I can enjoy a drink or two on the weekend. I’d love to have space to have a bar in the house! Wine racks, beer fridges and an extensive gin collection. It might be a good thing we don’t have one currently as it would be way too easy to make a nightcap into a daily thing!

Feature fireplace.

I’ve always loved grand fireplaces and I’d love a feature one in my living room to make the winter evenings cosy. Especially after the awful winter we’ve had this year!

Kitchen Island.

A central island in a kitchen would be amazing! At the moment our kitchen doesn’t have much space and this makes cooking big meals complicated! I’d love a central island not only for cooking but for that ideal place where people congregate during house parties! I’d love a marble worktop like the one above. Stunning.

What would be in your dream house?

    We are definitely on the same line with our wants Corinne! I remember when we first started saving for our first ever home and I was so unrealistic about what we could get! I’m still dreaming of a big free standing bath though and I do love a butler sink…!

    I thought I was the only one obsessed with drawing floor plans as a kid haha, great to know I’m not alone! :))) I remember my dream homes always had a zen garden and an absolutely gigantic bathroom. From a more realistic perspective, a kitchen island would be great! 🙂

    I used to really want a home gym, but I bought a treadmill a few years ago and never used it so sent it back – turns out I need to actually get out to be able to workout haha

    I kinda have a home gym already but would love a purpose made one. I always wanted a kitchen with an island, until I had one, then I hated it ha!
