Fun Ways to Turn Your Home into a Personal Retreat

We know that people are looking for ways to turn their Boise ID homes into personal retreats. While family time can be a good thing, everyone also needs a little time and space to themselves once in a while. Here are a few ideas for cozy hideaways to please every member of the family.

Young children want fun spaces to retreat to. They love the idea of their own personal hideout. Show them how to make a quick fort by draping a sheet or blanket over a small table. Or buy a small inexpensive tent they can pitch in the family room or game room. If your kid is the creative type, let them decorate a large cardboard appliance box to become their indoor playhouse.

Older Kids and Teens often prefer to spend time alone in their rooms. Help them stave off boredom by letting them redecorate their rooms. They can stay busy for hours dreaming up ideas and browsing online stores for just the right bedspread or wall art.

Adults need in-home getaways too, especially when everyone is home for an extended time. Designate a no-kids zone, like your bedroom, home office or the master bath. Hang a Do Not Disturb sign on the door if that’s what it takes. If you really need to get out of the house but don’t want to actually leave home, build a man cave or she shed in the back yard.


Brighton Homes offers floor plans with space for families to spread out. Homes with flex spaces are ideal for creating playrooms or office retreats. We’ve aimed to design a plan for every lifestyle. Most of our plans include dens or flex spaces, including some of our two bedroom homes. One and two story plans are available. Our homes can be customized to create the spaces that you and your family will love. Take advantage of current low interest rates to save money on your new home.

Our models are open for scheduled tours. We also continue to offer virtual tours and video meetings through FaceTime, Zoom and other platforms. Chat with us online or call Brighton Homes today at 208-908-7533 to tour our Boise ID homes.
