You work hard. You spend your money responsibly. You don’t splurge at parties. At the end of the day, you deserve to come home, relax, and indulge in all the perks of your luxurious home. Regardless of whether you are purchasing a home, or you are planning on remodeling your property, there are some high-end elements which will make your life more pleasant than ever. Besides, these upgrades can increase the value of the property, which you’ll appreciate if you ever decide to sell. Here are some ideas to spark your imagination.
An enclosed patio
Having an outdoor space to enjoy with your friends and family is one of the biggest benefits of owning a house. However, you can’t always be blessed with nice weather, not even if you live near the beach. An enclosed patio will provide you with the entertaining area where you don’t have to deal with rain or mosquitoes while giving you an option to enhance the luxury, and install additions such as a kitchen and dining area.
Outdoor fire and water features
Speaking of the great outdoors… The fact that the bad weather and pests can come shouldn’t discourage you from spending time outside. You should make the most of that time with luxury features such as a pool (think of something unusual, like a fish tank design), a fountain, a pond, and, of course, a fire pit or a fireplace, to gather around and enjoy the day.
Your very own spa
Another fantastic backyard addition that would complete your already glamorous exterior is a relaxing 2 person outdoor spa in which you can soak or have a refreshing massage. These affordable spas come in different sizes so you can opt for a bigger one if you think you will need it. The variety of shapes and designs allows you to fit them into your backyard, regardless of your preferred style.
A lit-up home
Moving on to the interior of the house, it is vital to acknowledge the role of lighting in the overall design. While the house can and should be illuminated with large windows, skylights can bring in natural light to the spaces that cannot be lit up with windows. The lighting design is further implemented with layered solutions (accent lights that draw attention to architectural features and artwork are especially welcome), and luxurious ceiling fixtures (e.g., crystal chandeliers).
A walk-in closet
Have you ever caught yourself longing for a large walk-in closet such as the ones seen in movies or supermodel homes? There’s nothing to be ashamed of; you’re not the only one. A spacious dressing room is not only fabulous but also practical. It provides you with ample storage space and frees your home of clutter.
A large kitchen island
Most homebuyers and homeowners give high priority to kitchens. Besides the usual features, the kitchens that are considered high-end are equipped with large kitchen islands that can serve as the centerpiece of the room. Marble countertops are still all the rage.
A world-class bathroom
Bathrooms are just behind the kitchens on the luxury priority lists. Their must-haves are a free-standing bathtub or a large walk-in shower with glass doors. A bathroom that reflects splendour will have some features of a spa, including natural materials (e.g., stone and wood), houseplants, and soft velour towels.
A room just for you
Do you have a spare room in your house? It is time to put it to good use and treat yourself to something you’ve always wanted to have. That can be a home gym equipped with your favourite machines, weights, and other workout equipment. Or you can build your man cave, game room, wine cellar, personal library, home theatre, or anything that you look forward coming back home to.
All teched up
For modern homeowners, luxury has a different meaning than for people remodeling their properties decades ago. The homeowners of today expect hidden, wall-mounted TVs, smart upgrades (e.g., a programmable thermostat, smart teapot, etc.), and everything else that can be controlled by an app.
While we all have a different understanding of luxury, these ideas can elevate every home from a simple building into a high-living establishment.
