High-end custom homes often have amenities that cannot be found in other homes.
These features are what set these homes apart from average ones and are often the reason why houses are classified as ‘high-end’ or ‘luxury’.
Here are 4 popular design features for luxury or high-end homes:
Vancouver is a picturesque city, with many being fortunate enough to have a view of the ocean, the mountains, or the stunning city skyline right from their homes. For these homeowners,floor-to-ceiling windows are essential.
Why only concern yourself with paint colors or wallpaper to enhance the rooms of your home when you can showcase your beautiful surroundings while enhancing the value and appeal of your home with glorious floor-to-ceiling windows?
Whether it’s for movies, gaming, music, or all of the above, your own designated media room is a high-value custom addition to your home.
When building or remodeling your media room, do it right! Make it just like being at the movie theatre and add features such as soundproof walls, lighting controls, a variety of viewing levels, theatre seats, a bar, dedicated wiring, internet hub and, of course, the big screen.
Oh, and don’t forget the popcorn maker and the fridge!
If you are an aficionado and lover of wine, a wine cellar is the perfect addition to your home. You can have it custom-designed to your exact requirements and taste. Your wine room should also be insulated and fitted with climate control to keep your precious collection at its best.
A wine cellar is a highly appealing, unique aesthetic feature in a home that double features as a custom design function as well as a showcase for your wine collection, which is considered an art piece by many.
Be the envy of all with your own custom wine cellar!
Extend your living space to the outdoors!
Homes with pools, backyard views or spacious landscaped gardens always benefit from having indoor/outdoor spaces for entertainment.
They’re perfect for barbecues, pool parties, receptions or intimate gatherings.
You can have special doors installed that fold away and open up a large wall section to open your entire kitchen, dining are or living room to the outdoors.
This will create a huge, flowing entertainment area.
With an indoor/outdoor space, you will make it easy for you and your guests to get a refreshing drink or just to mingle without having to go ‘inside’. Let both the indoors and the outdoors be equally inviting by blending them into one space. You may even opt to build a fully stocked outdoor kitchen, complete with BBQ, built-in fridge and microwave.
