There is nothing more satisfying than being pampered with luxury living. However, the contemporary age of living has altered the meaning of luxury living to more relaxed and comfortable living with minimal lines, and less “stuff”.
Bare floors in gorgeous finishes such as hardwoods, ceramic and porcelain tiles, travertine stone and marble have made way to contemporary living. Natural and organic materials are also a must in contemporary living. Turn your simple home into a luxurious one with these simple ideas.
The Modern Chandelier
Chandelier stands as a sign of regality and luxury. This luxury light fixture is now viewed as a minimalist home design feature. The use of metals to replace the standard crystals of a chandelier provides a more minimalistic & modern take. Geometric angles and monochromatic light fixture designs can give your home a simple touch of elegance.
A Gourmet Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home and the most important feature of the house. A luxury kitchen will always have warming drawers, restaurant quality appliances and a walk in pantry. The stainless steel tap designed to fit into any tabletop is a collectors’ item that adds value to your home.
Fine elements such as lighting fixtures that are distinct and look like works of fine art can be kept simple to reflect luxury. Hand railings and banisters that were once large handcrafted pieces of wood in past design decades can now be replaced with innovative tension cables, glass, or industrial materials.
Indoor Sports Spaces
The rise of extravagant indoor recreation spaces is all about brining luxury into your home. Full blown bowling alleys and indoor basketball courts along with swimming pools can give you the experience of being anywhere by your house.
Designer Dressing Room
What used to be a closet has now transitioned into a formal dressing room and can be much more important than a kitchen or home theater in a house. High-end dressing rooms go well beyond the typical walk-in and are created to look more like plush lounges or designer stores. Clothing and handbags in glass display cases are lighted like sculptures with custom-designed couches arranged within. Lighted clothing rods and shoe racks coupled with automated lights that turn on when cabinet doors open, are popular features of a luxury home.
Antiques and vintage finds are such a sophisticated way to add history and interest to your interior design and add a touch of luxury. Take that up a notch with antique doors and windows, which can be repurposed into one-of-a-kind furnishings as well as built directly into your home’s architecture. Incorporating an antique door or window into your living space pays homage to the homes and families of years past. There is something indescribably genuine about a century-old Indian window framing a large piece of art in your great room, or ancient Egyptian doors acting as the gateway to your garden.
Imagine having a luxurious bathroom just like they have at a world-class spa or resort. Luxury homeowners want to recreate that lifestyle into their everyday lives with a spa like bathroom. They feature walk in showers with seating, a rain shower, steam shower, large soaking tub, radiant heated floors, double vanities, towel warmers, and heated toilet seats. Adding wood elements and natural stones give it a natural and organic appeal.
