6 Items That Should Be on Your Home Bucket List

A large mansion with a pool at night offers a luxurious and dreamy atmosphere.

We all make bucket lists in our mind about the places we want to see and the things we want to do before we leave this world.  Now let’s consider the home bucket list.  This is not about the chores and repairs needed.  This is a list of those things that we dream about related to our home.  Here are 6 items that you may consider putting on your home bucket list.

1.  Walk-in Closet

Nearly every woman – and probably quite a few men – dream of a large walk-in closet with room for everything.  The dream walk-in closet includes drawers for storing delicate sweaters and lingerie, ample cubbies for shoes, and an array of hanging space.  Add to that plush carpet and exotic stone or wood flooring.  Lighting is by an overhead chandelier dripping with crystals and augmented with accent lighting on the shelves and above hangers.  There is space for accessories, such as belts, scarves and jewelry.  There is room to try on outfits and plenty of mirrors for modeling.  There is a soft ottoman for sitting down and putting on shoes.

2.  Spa Bath

Who wouldn’t want to have access to a spa 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?  A large soaking tub, therapeutic showerheads, heated floors and maybe even a sauna encompass the luxury spa bathroom.  At the end of a long day, immerse yourself in the relaxing waters of a spa bath or the soothing heat of a sauna.  A programmable showerhead will get the water warm for you in the mornings and you can step onto a smooth, marble floor heated from beneath.

3.  Home Theater

Movie night can be a whole new experience when you have your own home theater.  Comfortable lounging chairs, perhaps a bar for refreshments, and a large screen to view the latest in movies with friends and family round out the theater room.  To enhance the home theater further, install an LED-lighted ceiling and wire for amplified sound.  Hang a collection of movie posters on the walls and set up a popcorn maker.

4.  Wine Cellar

If you consider yourself a connoisseur of wine and like entertaining, or if you just enjoy a glass of wine occasionally, installing a wine cellar may be a dream of yours.  A cool, dry place is the ideal spot to store wine and reap the benefits of having your wine collection close at hand.  A wine cellar complete with table and chairs and a bar for tasting parties is an added bonus.

5.  Swimming Pool

A luxurious backyard swimming pool appeals to many homeowners.  If your home bucket list includes this feature, add waterfalls and lush landscaping for added enjoyment.  Imagine floating in your pool at night under the stars with perhaps a fire pit nearby.  Weekend pool parties share the spotlight with relaxing days sunbathing between laps.

6.  Outdoor Kitchen

If you love cooking outdoors or enjoy entertaining, an outdoor kitchen is no doubt on your home bucket list.  Go extravagant with a full outdoor kitchen for the most efficiency.  Add a pizza oven for even more outdoor cooking fun.  Plenty of counter space adds to an outdoor kitchen, giving you the area to spread out for meal preps.  A raised counter for bar seating lets you stay in the mix of things during gatherings.
