Hidden Doorway

Usually the setting of a dark yet thrilling mystery novel, hidden passageways have gained traction on the home remodel scene in recent years. Something as simple as adding a bookcase to a door (or as complex as a remote controlled staircase), companies like Creative Home Engineering can help design the perfect setting for your own mystery. (For simpler versions, you may be able to make do with just a hidden doorway. Talk to local door contractor if you’re interested but lacking the cash to build in a new room).

Adult Treehouse

Be honest, you know you want one

You’re never too grown up to come down from a treehouse, but if you’re still spending time in the same small treehouse you grew up with, it may be time for an upgrade. Adult treehouses can include multi-level platforms, firemen poles, rock climbing walls for entrance, canopy walks, zip lining, you name it! Starting at about $40,000, these treehouses can be customized to fit your particular space and your wildest adventures.

At-home Arcade

As the saying goes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Looking for a solution? Consider creating an at-home arcade! We’re never too old to stop playing, and with companies like Dream Home Arcades selling genuine arcade games for in-home use and basement contractors more excited than ever to get creative, what’s stopping you?

Talk with a professional about where to start - you may want to go for a complete bathroom remodel, or you may be content to make upgrades one step at a time. Either way, treat yourself to luxury with a bathroom spa experience that fits your every need (and let’s be real: who doesn’t need a little more pampering in their life?).
