Designing Your Ideal Vacation Home

The sun is out. The weather is beautiful. If you’re like us at ADŌR, you’re dreaming about vacation. 

If you have considered designing your own vacation home, you’re not alone. Custom vacation homes are the perfect place to create lasting memories with friends and family.

As always, at ADŌR we’re here to inspire you and the spaces you inhabit. Today, let’s look at designing your own vacation home to enjoy for all of the summer days to come!

Your Location Can Guide Your Design

If you’re considering building a vacation home in Minnesota, perhaps you’re imagining a lakefront property. Lakes can offer up peaceful mornings, plenty of fishing, and stunning views. 

As you’re designing your home’s interior, think about how you can reflect or compliment your surroundings. Big open windows allow you to soak in as much of the beauty as possible. Or consider mirroring colors from the outside world  – blues, greens, or even purples – into your interior design.

Whether you want to go cozy cabin or opt for an open, airy vibe, you can easily create a comfortable space that highlights your beautiful surroundings. 

Choose Durable Materials

Since you won’t be in this space year-round, we recommend choosing durable materials that don’t require constant maintenance. This is especially important when it comes to plumbing. Investing in high-quality materials for sinks, faucets, and toilets will help cut down on potential issues when you’re not around.

How Much Tech is Enough?

In a family vacation home, you may want to unplug a bit. Consider limiting TVs or other screens so you can enjoy some time away from technology. 

Our tip: consider keeping technology user friendly so that you don’t have to read that dreaded A/C manual every time you visit.

Elevate With Little Luxuries

Your vacation home is THE place for little touches of luxury. Why not go for statement furniture pieces or a gorgeous countertop (we have some recommendations here).

Adding in elements that bring you comfort or joy (or both) can really elevate your vacation experience. 

Let Your Loved Ones Inspire You

One of the best parts about building a custom family vacation home? Designing around your family’s unique needs. Love playing cards together? Let’s create a big gathering room. Using it to host annual family reunions? We can maximize sleeping arrangements so that there’s plenty of space for even the littlest ones.
