When you think of luxurious houses, you have to think of extravagance and opulence. No, in this case, we are not talking about a view, heated pool, or a kitchen the size of someone’s apartment. To some people, having these three may seem like a luxury, but for others, that is basic.
Think of some of the most extravagant things you’ve ever heard of. It can be a tennis or basketball court for those who love sports, a fully stocked kitchen for the foodies, or a home gym for those who love working out. Now imagine all of these in one house. That is a luxurious house.
Some of the things that you only find in a luxurious house include;
There are a lot of technological innovations that are swarming the market. Luxury homeowners want them all. Some builders specialize in turning a house into a technological hub. Some of the technology you can find in a house are:
- Security systems that use artificial intelligence to make security seamless
- Doors with sensitive motion detectors, face and fingerprint recognition
- Kitchen appliances like refrigerators that keep a list of what is inside and ovens that advise you on how to bake or toast your meal.
- Radiant heating systems that directly supply heat to the outdoor driveway, wall panels, and the floor
- Smart lightly that allows you to adjust the lighting of a room remotely
Modern luxury houses are full of such technology and it offers peace of mind, enhances security, and improves lifestyle.
2.Theatre and Game Rooms
This trend may have been there for a while, but owners of luxury houses have taken it a notch higher. According to novushomes.com.au, it is no longer about the room with a recliner, screen, and a pool table.
Here you can find:
- An indoor swing
- A pinball machine
- A projector for movie nights
- A gaming nook
- A cocktail corner
If you love old arcade games, there is no reason why you should not add them to your home. Most of these game rooms are ideal for both adults and kids. The idea of having to watch your kids and their friends play while you do is long gone. Who says you can’t have fun while you do it?
3.Artificial Water Bodies
You are probably thinking of marble fountains you see in front of a marble fountain in front of the house with two lion sculptures, right? Put that thought aside for a minute. Think of a pond beneath the stairs or in the middle of the living room area or a river running through the house. Imagine reading a book with your feet in the water inside your house. Better yet, heating the water when it gets too cold.
Traditional Chinese medicine considers having water bodies close or in your living space restores physical harmony and balances the body. Studies have also shown that water has a calming and soothing effect. In many cultures and religions in the world, water is considered spiritual.
Most of the owners of the luxurious houses have traveled to many parts of the world and come across some of the best spas. They decide to recreate this in their homes. This includes a steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, towel warmers, and massive showers that have head-to-toe jets.
Some of the things are imported from different countries. Imagine coming home to a spa day after having a stressful day. This will not only exfoliate your skin but also stimulate your lymphatic system.
5.A Secret Room
You have probably seen movies with a secret room that most of the time is opened by moving a certain book on the shelf. Some people have this in their houses. It may not be a meeting room for world spies, but most of them are luxurious lounges or panic rooms.
6.A Liquor Room
You have probably seen many houses with a wine seller or a wine fridge and you thought that was the best there ever will be. Some houses have liquor rooms. These rooms have many alcoholic drinks. Some have a champagne spot where, by touching a button, champagne is poured for you. All you have to do is hold your glass.
Another corner of the room is customized to serve as a wine cellar, while another can be a whiskey and vodka corner. The room then has a few comfortable chairs. Some houses even have a barman.
Your version of luxury does not have to be the same as the next person’s but you have to agree, some of these are just things you can dream of. Only that for some people, it is not a dream.
