There’s tax refund fun to be found at home, too

Spring is a great time to get started on sprucing up your home — spring-cleaning is done, summer entertaining is on its way and your tax refund cheque is in the mail.

No matter what your price range is, adding a few luxury items to your home can enhance the time you spend there — creating an atmosphere of fun, relaxation and style.

Nice three-piece?
Refund $130
A contemporary three-piece bistro set from Canadian Tire is a chic way to dress up any patio or balcony. It’s great for early morning coffee in the summer or a romantic dinner at sunset.
“Two folding sling chairs and sturdy frame make storing easy during the winter months,” says Radha Bharania, spokesperson for Canadian Tire.

Brand-new BBQ
Refund: $600
Adding a brand new barbecue to your patio is the perfect way to kick off summer for family and guests. The Broil King BBQ from Sears has 400 square inches of cooking surface and 235 square inches for its warming rack to make sure there’s enough room for everyone’s steak. It also has a stainless steel Flav-R-Wave cooking system, which instantly vapourizes drippings. A deluxe rotisserie kit is also included.

Refund: $1000
If you have extra space in your rec-room, a pool table is a fun addition for get-togethers for you and the kids. A Mizerak Donovan Billiards Table from Sears comes with cues, balls, a triangle, chalk and a brush — everything to get you started on your game.

Hot tub luxury
Refund: $5000
For year-round luxury, a hot tub is the ultimate home addition. The Outlaw from Arctic Spa can fit five to seven people comfortably for a relaxing soak with 18 powerful jets. “With multi-level spacious seating for the very tall, very small and everyone in between, the Outlaw is perfect for families of all sizes,” says Philip Edey, spokesperson for Arctic Spa. It also has a wall plug option, which enables the Outlaw to be plugged into any outlet to provide easy and economical installation.
