It's no secret that Sarasota is a top place to live and play. Recently awarded the number one spot to retire by TopRetirements.com, our stretch of Gulf Coast shoreline is known for its abundant sun, beautiful soft-sand beaches, and array of things to see and do.
When you retire in Sarasota, you naturally want to settle down in a spot that's as ready for fun and relaxation as you are--and a big part of that starts with your home's design.
In today's blog, we will be exploring the home improvement features that can make your retirement the easygoing adventure you've been dreaming of. Take a look.
Sun protection features
Florida is a natural choice for those looking to soak up the sun and enjoy year-round warmth and comfort. Even if you spend every day outdoors, however, you may not always want to be in direct sunlight. That's where sun protection features come in handy. From awnings to patio covers and pergolas, these features can help you enjoy time in your backyard or around the pool without having to absorb those strong summer rays directly.
Extra space to enjoy
If you're in the middle of shaping your dream home for retirement, you probably know that it's not all about practicality--this is your chance to design spaces that help you kick back and pursue your passions, whether those include painting, reading, exercising, or just about anything else. In these cases, a room addition--including a sun or acrylic room--can help you make room for the things you love most. These spots are also worth considering for those who hope to do lots of entertaining in their Sarasota home!
Replacement windows for added security
If you're retiring in the sunny city of Sarasota, housework and other chores are probably the last things on your mind. You can remove the need for summer storm prep by installing replacement windows that take care of the protection for you--throughout the year, they look like your basic windows. They let in just the right amount of light and can even help you cut down on energy costs. But should a strong storm every roll into town, you can be confident that your windows can serve in place of basic hurricane shutters, shielding your home from debris and strong winds.
Whether you're a Sarasota local looking for ways to improve your home, or are planning to make a move in the near future, we hope that these ideas help you create a space you truly love. You can count on White Aluminum to be your local Sarasota resource for all things home improvement.
