Vacation: an extended period of leisure and recreation, especially one spent away from home or in traveling.

Everyone loves to go on vacation, and the excitement and anticipation we feel leading up to our much-needed time away from everyday life helps get us through those extra-long workdays. We all look forward to our planned holiday but returning home from a week-long stay on the beach can be tough. If you took an early summer vacation this year and are already feeling those post-vacation blues, there are ways you can create a resort-style experience at home to make reality a little more luxurious and relaxing.

Create Open-Air Spaces with Large Folding or Sliding Door Systems

Most tropical beach resorts have a common theme: indoor-outdoor living. The resorts you’re used to visiting probably connect each hotel experience to the sparkling ocean, blue skies, and flourishing nature using large glass windows and doors. Replicating this indoor-outdoor resort lifestyle in your home is easy with the installation of a large glass Bi-Fold or Multi-Slide Patio Door. With wide-open views and a seamless connection to your outdoor space created by a large door system, you’ll feel like you’re still on a relaxing vacation.



Create Resort-Style Ambiance in Your Outdoor Room

Everything about a resort’s interior design is planned out and calculated to provide the most relaxing and calming experience for guests. You can turn your outdoor space into a quiet oasis that feels just like a 5-star resort with some easy updates.

  • Hang string lights outside to illuminate your outdoor space at night with a soft, relaxing glow.
  • Invest in plush, comfortable outdoor furniture, lounge chairs, and daybeds that will leave you feeling sleepy and relaxed.
  • Plant some tropical flowers, plants, and trees to add some extra greenery to your space.
  • Add a water feature to your patio or garden to provide peaceful noise that will help you relax and remind you of your last tropical holiday.








Create an Indoor-Outdoor Tiki Bar with Folding Windows

What would a resort vacation be without a tiki bar to supply all your cravings for Mai Tais and Piña Coladas? You can create your very own indoor-outdoor tiki bar using a Bi-Fold Passthrough Window that connects your kitchen or bar to your outdoor entertainment space. Store the blender and margarita mix nearby so you can whip up some margs at a moment’s notice. Whether you’re fixing a drink for two, or hosting several guests, this tiki bar will be the perfect addition to your resort-style space!

Once your resort-style living space is complete, prepare for some extra pampering. Schedule an in-home massage and have them set-up outside in your new, relaxing space. Spend the whole day lying by the pool and sipping on blended drinks while you soak up the summer sun. A day like this will feel like a mini-vacation and will help you ease back into everyday life after a long vacation.
