The Must-Have Features People Want In Luxury Homes
A luxurious home is not simply defined by its size. The epitome of a luxury home is defined by what is inside, and what you decide to do with all that space. Although there are a few things that come to mind when we think of lavish homes such as a tennis court, or an indoor movie theater, what are the must-have features that will turn your home into a showstopper fit for Royals?
Open Floor Plan
When it comes to luxury homes, the devil is truly in the details, and what finer detail is there than your floors? Any type of flooring can look luxurious enough if it’s done correctly, and the materials are top quality. Having an open floor plan draws more attention to the quality of the floors, creates more natural light, and enhances your living space.
Building your home with a grand entrance hall with an open plan layout screams luxury the minute your guests walk through the door.
Outdoor Kitchen & Bar
These days, having the best quality kitchen countertops, or an island counter with a built-in sink, is simply not enough in terms of luxury homes. True luxury is being able to create the ultimate outdoor kitchen and bar area that is kitted out for convenient outdoor entertainment.
Some of the top features you should look for in a luxurious outdoor kitchen area is a built-in gas grill, a designated area for food preparation and clean-up, a built-in fridge and freezer combination for food and drink storage. For even more luxury and convenience, the outdoor area should be equipped with a bar area and bar stools, as well as an extra seating area for lounging, dining, and entertainment.
If you are looking for a place to start in making your home more luxurious, look no further than upgrading your bathroom to a place of sanctuary.
A bathroom is a place of relaxation and there are so many different ways luxury can be introduced to your bathroom. Luxurious bathroom fixtures that will transform your home include:
- A sunken bathtub with massage jets.
- A walk-in shower with a rain shower head.
- Heated towel rails and underfloor heating.
- His and her sinks with built-in drawers.
- A skylight above the bath to create more natural light or stargaze in the tub at night.
Walk-In Dressing Room
One of the top must-have features to make a luxury home is a walk-in dressing room to store your clothes, shoes, handbags, and even jewelry. To make this dream a reality, the room would be an add-on to the main bedroom and should definitely include lots of shelves, hanging rails, a dressing table, and lots of mirrors.
Nothing is cozier on a cold winter evening than cuddling up on the couch with a fluffy blanket, some hot cocoa, and a fire. A fireplace is a perfect addition to make your home seem even more luxurious and is always beautiful to look at. Plus, a fireplace provides the extra bonus of heating up a room without having to turn up the heat for the whole home.
A home gym is extremely convenient on the days that we’re too busy to hit the gym, or would rather skip the crowded weights section. A home gym can be filled with a built-in bar, a mirror that covers an entire wall, and even a home sauna. You can fit the room with speakers and television so you can choose to listen to your favorite songs or catch the news, while you sweat it out.
