“Luxury must be comfortable. Otherwise, it is not luxury,” the beautiful Coco Chanel knows what she is talking about. If your luxury home is not comfortable enough, it is not necessarily a luxury to be considered laudable. Let us ponder over what all luxury entails- elegance, serenity, splendour, flamboyance and above all an affluent leisure. Till now, we have been entitling ‘location’ as the primary consideration for all our luxury real estate requirements. But, things are not the same in the market as they were earlier. Times have changed, prices have changed, people have changed as so has the expectations.
I completely agree that the location of your dream home is of paramount importance, but should it be your only concern? Your home is your special place; it is where you relax, where you can feel safe and above all feel content.
Without further adieu, let me present some significant factors that you should consider before investing in your next big real estate home:
Being Unique is being Beautiful
Don’t you just love those pristine homes built around the rarest of architectural splendour? Everyone loves a home that promises luxury, artistic beauty and exclusivity. A good way to buy luxury homes is to ascertain their visual appeal in terms of future preferences. How would the present architecture style be considered in later years? Also, it is best never to forget about useful architectural elements like extra details to minute components, top quality materials, a strong foundation, etc.
Let the Light In
How good is a luxury home if it does not have plenty of natural lights and views of the beautiful skyline to feast your eyes on. Your luxury home should have large windows and design elements that facilitate an unobstructed view of your surroundings. This will not only lift your mood up, but also your resale price as well.
A Practical Design
You are going to entertain friends and guests in your luxurious home. However, you do not wish your socialising to hamper your personal framework. For instance, you do not want your guests to enter your personal bedroom just because they want to use the bath. How could you ensure this? Well, a practical design and layout is the answer to your problem. The layout of the house should not consist of unnecessarily long hallways, coarse design elements, and other graceless construction flaws.
Reaching Out to Greater Heights
The perfect height for your ceilings to be is the closest to fourteen feet. Any height above this could mean diminishing marginal returns for you. And if the ceilings are way below 14 feet, you know what to do. It is better to measure in terms of cubic feet than in square feet.
Your Recreational Refuge
Health and fitness are important. Most luxury homes provide inbuilt gyms and other fitness amenities. It is essential to consider the area and design elements in terms of their monetary as well as aesthetic value before settling down for your perfect choice.
The More Storage Space you have, the Better
We all have so many possessions we value. We want to ensure that their quality is maintained throughout. Besides our valuables, there are other belongings that have to be stored properly. A good luxury home is one which has ample space to suit all your storage needs.
The Name Says it All
Some might feel that this feature is not worth the trouble, but your future home’s reputation could have a high impact on your image and the resale aspects. It is good to ask around, do some deep research and most important of all, trust only the best in business to be your agent!
I understand that investing in luxury real estate is not the easiest decision of your life. You could consider these aspects, and your work would get a lot simpler. After all, owning a luxury home can make you the talk of the town as well as the object of envy and admiration amongst your friends.
