There are plenty of features that make a home luxurious but here are seven that are sure to be included in Perth’s most luxurious homes this year.
Resort Style Luxury Pool
With our warm summers, the pool is a perfect addition for entertaining. It can keep the kids busy or act as a stunning visual feature of the backyard that can be enjoyed from inside the house and out. Use lighting underwater and above to showcase the pool surrounds, so the area looks great day and night.
The palm trees, outdoor lighting and sun lounges around the pool add to the resort feel of this property.
Luxury Home Theatre with State of the Art Technology
State of the art home entertainment technology means you can have the cinema experience without leaving home. Use luxurious thick curtains, plush carpets and comfortable chairs for the ultimate night-in. To ensure the sound doesn’t travel, use absorbing materials on the walls of your theatre. The theatre’s technology can be part of your home automation system. Smart home technology means you can control the lights, heating, cooling, security and entertainment with the flick of a button from inside the home or when you are away using your mobile phone.
With reclining lounges and cup holders this family would never need to visit the cinema again.
For hundreds of years, a grand staircase has been the epitome of luxury homes around the world, and 2018 is no exception. A beautiful sweeping staircase from the entry leads the eye up to the second storey past the elegant balustrading and generous treads. Depending on the style of home, choose between classic dark wood or modern glazed tiles.
This beautiful staircase uses American white oak for the handrail stained to match the dark finish of the European oak treads.
Butler’s Pantry in the Full-Size Kitchen
The kitchen will always be an important part of any luxurious home. Make sure there is plenty of bench top and floor space that multiple people can work comfortably around each other.
Every luxury home should be designed for entertaining as well as everyday living so include a butler’s pantry in the design. The butler’s pantry allows appliances to be left out ready to use and a kitchen sink for washing dishes. Some people prefer to divide the kitchen into wet and dry areas. A wet kitchen is used for messy, heavy duty cooking while the dry area is for easy cooking tasks.
This kitchen uses different coloured cabinetry and stone bench tops to add interest and separate the butler’s pantry from the kitchen area.
Lighting for Mood and Effect
In large homes, the lighting can be used to effectively zone large open plan living areas. Create different moods in rooms with the right lighting including downlights, lamps, and pendants. Use beautiful lighting as a feature of the home. In the kitchen you can use multiple pendants as statement pieces and for the foyer choose a stunning chandelier.
There is so much choice in chandeliers. This modern, abstract chandelier is more suited to this style of home than a traditional crystal piece.
Entertaining in your Outdoor Area
With an outdoor kitchen that includes a BBQ, sink and drinks fridge, you can choose between relaxed entertaining outside rather than more formal entertaining inside. With enough storage in your outdoor kitchen, you can keep another set of cutlery, crockery and condiments outdoors rather than moving them from your indoor kitchen each time.
This outdoor kitchen and dining area has a touch of luxury with temperature control, airflow and storage for convenient entertaining.
Wine Room for Temperature Control Storage
If you are a wine connoisseur who likes to collect more than the odd bottle, a wine room may be the perfect addition to your new home. The room is custom made to your home and when filled and beautifully lit becomes a stunning feature. The room is kept at the optimum temperature year round to protect your investment.
