Spending more time at home, especially when you can enjoy the beautiful features of your spacious custom house in Destin, can be extremely rewarding!  You have the rooms you need, the options you desire, and the neighborhood you deserve to enhance your life. So, to make sure that you are getting the most out of every glorious square foot, we have compiled a list of today’s most popular choices for in-home entertainment and hobbies for you and your family to experience.

Catch Up on Book Reading

Of course you can never go wrong with a good read. Curl up in your inspirational study or inviting sunroom and lose yourself in historical fiction, an emotional tear-jerker, or a mind-boggling mystery.  Some excellent biographies have also been recently added to bookstore shelves including Always Young and Restless by Melody Thomas Scott, Time of the Magicians by Wolfram Eilenberger, and Memorial Drive by Natasha Trethewey.

Board Games and Puzzles

If you are looking for something that includes the whole family, puzzles or board games are always a great pastime.  Grab those classic board games such as Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit or Monopoly and challenge your loved ones with a little healthy competition.  You can also choose to head west at the beginning of the 19th century as you seek to tame the American frontier in Settlers of Catan (also known as just Catan).  In the past decade or so, a plethora of strategic board games such as Catan have gained in popularity and are a great way to spend a quiet evening in your home. If board games are already an important part of your life, ask your Destin custom home builder about including a room devoted to your chess set or Majhong table.

Binge-Streaming TV Shows

For more of a guilty pleasure, we suggest catching up on fan favorites via your streaming services.  Whether you want a nostalgic throwback with an 80’s sitcom or you want to binge an award-winning show like Outlander or Yellowstone, you will have plenty of viewing options..  Don't forget to share your TV nook or home theater design ideas with your Destin custom home builder of choice

Reviving Forgotten Hobbies

We also want to remind you of those hobbies that you may have forgotten. Roll up the rug and brush off your dance moves, dabble in a new art project and rediscover your love of painting, put pen to paper (or maybe we should say fingers to keyboard) and churn out the next great American novel, or delve into the world of knitting or crocheting.  Not only does knitting produce beautiful handmade crafts but it also provides incredible health benefits such as a lower heart rate, lower blood pressure, and reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Who knew? 

If you are looking for a break from the summer heat or thinking of how to spend the upcoming cooler months, these activities are a few of many perfect ways you can enjoy your custom home in Destin!  For more information on building your new custom home in Destin and accommodating all of your unique hobbies and interests, call us at (919) 521-4345 or schedule an appointment.
