So you’re thinking about remodeling or renovating a room, or adding on to your home, and then Valentine’s Day rolls around, and BAM! Inspiration strikes!

It may seem trite at first, but there really are a lot of ways to set the stage for romance through the design-build process. Whether you are new home-owners looking to extend your honeymoon bliss, busy parents searching for a romantic home-oasis or empty nesters seeking a way to spice up your space there are some great design and décor techniques to add some romance to your remodel, renovation or addition.

“I know for a fact children were conceived in homes we’ve renovated, so I guess you could say we’ve created some romantic spaces,” says Mike Spreckelmeier of Progressive Builders with a chuckle. “Seriously, I think a sense of intimacy is always important for any home, and many of our customers seem to have an appreciation for that.”

For example, one customer chose a “dual” tub for their master suite. This beautiful, historically accurate claw-foot tub is large enough for two people, and the faucet pours into the center of the tub, so bathers can rest their heads comfortably at either end. Dual shower heads are another highly desirable feature in high end bathrooms.

Many couples enjoy having a wet bar in the master bedroom, and a strategically placed wine refrigerator helps spark romance anywhere in the home. A beautiful chandelier with a dimmer switch can set the stage for a romantically-lit dinner, as do indoor and outdoor fireplaces, hot tubs and a wireless sound system.

In the end, romance is personal and depends greatly on the individual couple’s taste. It could be an outdoor space conducive to star-gazing, new windows that open the home to a beautiful view, or planters where a husband can grow his wife’s favorite flowers.

Romance is a customized experience, and Progressive Builders has the experience and know-how to make couples’ dreams come true. With our easy 3-step process and dedication to excellent customer service you will soon be on your way to enjoying your personalized, romantic retreat!
