What would you do if you won $600 million? That is the question on everyone’s mind as Powerball fever sweeps the nation. The water cooler within our office has been all-abuzz as Wednesday’s estimated $360 million swelled to an unfathomable $600 million Friday.
As speculation turned to anticipation, we began to discuss the luxury upgrades we would each make in our home. We debated everything from a personal in-home spa to a zip-line in the backyard. I mean really, who wouldn’t want a zip-line running through their backyard? Well, maybe that is just the kid in me.
So what upgrades would you make if you won the lottery? Here are a few ideas to get you started! (And if you find yourself reading this Monday from work, there’s always next time!)
5 Dream Home Upgrades
1. Swimming Pool
What better way to stay cool in the summer than by adding a pool to your backyard? It goes without saying that this cannot be your standard pool. After all, if you are going to dream big, you might as well go for the gusto!
Luxury pools range from infinity vanishing edge designs, to sweeping tropical oases and even pools suspended over the ocean. Make a splash in your backyard with custom-designed (and completely over-the-top) amenities opulent enough to keep even the most posh friends singing your praises.
2. Media Room
The three fundamentals of a luxury media room that suits the whole family are an HD surround sound system, custom built furniture and a dizzying array of snacks.
However, if you’re standard indoor theater room won’t fit the bill; why not try an open-air design!
