Latest Trends in Luxury Homes
Luxury homes are not only determined by price, but by what they have to offer. Here are a few must-haves that define luxury in a home.
Kitchens are one of the most important features of a home, It's where families come together, where meals are shared, and holidays celebrated. It's no wonder why they are one of the biggest focuses when it comes to a luxury home.
More and more kitchens are adding big, shiny, professional grade appliances fit to rival the most upscale restaurants. Wine coolers, warming drawers, walk-in butler's pantries are also popular, and of course, spacious kitchens are always in style.
Outdoor living space is a major trend in high-end homes. Having the right adjoining living space is the height of luxury. Modern upscale homes also include complete outdoor kitchens, including pizza ovens, built-in barbecues, refrigerator, and stainless workspace. This entertaining space should be ready for the most extravagant outdoor party with cozy seating and lighting, and the ambiance from a fireplace on a cool night is the icing on the cake.
Nothing says luxury like a relaxing day at the spa and many luxury homeowners make it a spa day every day by transforming their bathrooms into hotel-quality oases, complete with heated flooring, large jetted/soaker tubs, oversized walk-in showers and large open space. Bathrooms are no longer the smallest rooms in the house in a luxury home in Evergreen.
In the past, even the simplest walk-in closets were a hallmark of luxury, but not anymore. Most luxury homeowners have taken their closets a step further by transforming them into complete, designer showroom-quality changing rooms. Extravagant details such as chandeliers, and center islands and floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves are all the rage.
Technology plays a huge part in everyday lives. Everybody is always chasing after the latest gadget. It's no wonder smart homes have become so popular for upscale homes. Many high-end homes now include technology that controls security systems, a video camera for live stream feeds, temperature, unlocking doors and turning lights on and off all from your smartphone.
