As people continue to spend more time at home, 65% of homeowners have invested in refurbishments to upgrade their properties and make them more luxurious. Custom building a property creates a unique luxury home, but many of the elements of such a property, such as a larger footprint or a high end kitchen, can be replicated with renovation and extension. Space can also be created by choosing a more minimalist design to make the most of the room you have. At the same time, unique features and accessories created from high quality materials can add a feel of simple elegance, whether you are creating a luxury bedroom or remodelling your whole house to a high spec.
Building A New Luxury Home
In the latest new and remodelled homes, luxury designs are less about extravagant and opulent décor, and more focused on creating spaces where experiences can be enjoyed in style. Outdoor space has been sought after recently, and healthy, sustainable homes that offer a seamless connection with nature are now more highly valued.
Creating A Feeling Of Space
Luxury homes are associated with large, open spaces, but if remodelling is out of your budget, paint effects and other decorative treatments can make your home seem more spacious. Neutral colours give an airy feel, and can make a room feel larger, while painting the skirting board in the same shade creates a feeling of height. In addition, decluttering, removing oversized furniture, and generally following a more minimalist design will simply create more available floor space in any size of room.
High-End Finishing Touches
While luxury homes tend to be less opulent these days, adding finishing touches and accessories in high quality materials such as antique gold, solid wood or natural stone throughout your home can make it look more luxurious. Real wood flooring and marble countertops help to create a polished look, while replacing shabby and mismatched bathroom taps with high-end coordinated fittings will add elegance to an ordinary bathroom suite.
While many luxury homes have high end kitchens, elegant terraces and outdoor pools, the creation of a more harmonious space is an element that can be enjoyed in any home. Fittings and accessories are easy to upgrade to give your home an elegant and polished feel.
