The concept of what makes a luxury home is never stagnant. As home building and designing trends evolve and new materials and new technology enter the scene, people also expect different features and elements in their custom-designed luxury home.
While the furniture and décor are important aspects of a luxury property, homeowners prioritise the lifestyle their home offers; and the luxury quotient is directly linked to the number and type of amenities that the home has. Here is a list of 7 must-have installations for a custom luxury home:
#1 Current day homes use smart technology
When you get anything installed on your property, you want it to add convenience and comfort to your life. With this in view, most property owners like to add automation to their homes. The latest trend in this space is smart technology and you are able to control and manage everything via your phone, regardless of where you are in the world. With this technology, you will be able to:
- Control all the lighting fixtures in your home
- CCTV cameras
- Motion sensors on outdoor lighting
- Air conditioning
- Heating systems
- Hot tubs
- Music and other media systems
- Window blinds and shutters
- Awnings and retractable patio screens
- Most electrical appliances
- Control the thermostat
- Automatic sprinklers
- And more
#2 Wine cellars or wine rooms
Most luxury homes also have custom-built wine cellars or wine rooms; they become a stunning addition to your home and the prefect setting to show off your fine wine collection. The rooms are also outfitted with luxurious furniture and can double-up as tasting rooms. These temperature and humidity-controlled rooms can also have LED lighting and other embellishments that add to the luxury quotient of the home.
#3 Gourmet kitchen
Most luxury homebuyers or people that get custom-designed homes built like to ensure they have the latest technology in their kitchen. And so, a luxury kitchen will have commercial quality appliances, a temperature-controlled walk-in pantry, warming drawers and wine fridges. Today, many of these kitchen appliances can also be operated via iPhones and all it requires is the touch of a button to get your coffee maker and other appliances started.
#4 Entertainment features
Luxury living is about ensuring that your home has all possible amenities and so an entertainment room is a rule rather than an exception in a multi-million dollar home. Game rooms and movie theatres are a norm. Apart from this, many luxury homes also sport indoor pools, indoor basketball courts and golf courses as well as elaborately-outfitted sports bars. The idea is to create entertainment and relaxation zones that will ensure the homeowner doesn’t feel the need to leave the comfort of their home for any of these things.
#5 Alfresco areas
Current day luxury homes have alfresco spaces that are as splendidly designed as the indoor areas. With floor-to-ceiling sliding patio doors, and expansive deck and poolscapes, the objective is to create outdoor spaces that transition seamlessly from the indoor areas. Luxurious outdoor furniture, spas and giant stone fireplaces and fire pit areas complete the picture. Many people like water features such as Koi Ponds that have exotic fish and aquatic plants in them.
#6 Outdoor Spa Rooms
Semi-enclosed spa rooms add another dimension to the luxury quotient. These areas could have features such as floors with radiant heating, towel warmers, luxurious double vanities and immense soaking tubs and Jacuzzis.
The focus is also on creating environmentally-sustainable spaces; it’s why elements like drought-resistant plants, permeable paver installations and water-efficient irrigation systems are also commonly used.
In addition to these a features, expansive home gyms with the latest equipment, designer dressing rooms and more are what define modern day custom luxury.
