1. Heated Floors
Once you try it, you’ll never go back. Heated floors are widely sought out by luxury home buyers. After all, who wouldn’t want to step out of the shower onto a nice, warm bathroom floor? Heated floors are most common in the bathroom, but you can heat almost any floor in any room.
You can also heat your carpet or tile to add extra comfort to your home. Homeowners love radiant floor heating both for their own comfort as well as to add to the value of their home.
2. Wood Beam Ceiling Accents
If you’re looking for a natural accent to add to your home, look no further than wooden beam ceiling accents. When looking to create a unique focal point in your living room or great room, a wood beam ceiling accent is the way to go. This is a way to bring the outdoors in and give you that wow factor you’re looking for.
Whether you want timber or a vintage recycled wood, you can’t go wrong with the rustic charm that wood beam ceiling accents add. You can add a mix of wood and other materials or use a new, reclaimed or recycled wood. No matter what you choose, you’re sure to love the warmth and style it adds to your home.
3. Hardwood Floors In Common Areas
Wood is definitely the most desired and loved flooring option these days, and for good reason. Luxury home buyers are looking for hardwood floors in the living room and other areas of a home. There’s a reason why real estate agents always mention wood floors in the common areas of a home – it’s easy to clean, trendy, and durable.
Even in kitchens, hardwood is a must-have because it’s stylish, comfortable on your feet and has lavish appeal. Hardwood floors have been a lasting trend that continues to stand the test of time, and we’re willing to bet that it will continue to be a favorite for many years to come.
4. Ornate Front Doors
First impressions count! Many luxury home owners want to impress their guests with ornate front doors. Ornate front doors can feature glass and ironwork details, and vary in height from six to eight feet. What better way to increase your curb appeal than to have a beautiful front door that speaks to who you are?
There are a variety of ways to customize your front door, from the materials you choose to the design and colors. Be sure to speak with your builder to figure out what option is best to dress the front of your home.
5. Smart Home Technologies
The luxury homes of today have top of the line security and in-home features. Controlling your home with the push of a button is the way to go if you’re looking to increase your home value.
Partnered with items like Amazon’s Alexa or Google Home, you’re sure to love a home that is able to adapt to your needs. The more smart home features you add, the more convenient your day-to-day living in your new home will be.
6. Large Kitchen Islands
Many luxury home buyers want large kitchen islands to be the focal point for entertaining in their kitchen. You couldn’t ask for a more perfect place for friends and family to socialize around.
Your kitchen island can be customized with different countertop materials, or even by the height of your island. Talk to your builder and choose the options that you desire most.
7. Covered Back Porches
A covered porch can be a lovely place to sit and enjoy your afternoon while adding living space to your home. A covered porch shields from the elements and is an extra space for relaxing on your own or spending time with the family.
Covered porches are a great way to bring the outdoors in, and enjoy your porch no matter the time of year.
8. Stone Accents On The Exterior Of The Home
Including a natural element like stone on the exterior of your home is a great way to give it unique character. Stone is very low maintenance and desirable to home buyers because of its natural appeal.
You can mix stone and brick or use it in a wainscoting effect. You’ll enjoy the look and sustainability of this natural material for years to come.
Opting to install luxury features helps create a home that you’ll be proud to own and will serve as the perfect gathering place for family and friends. When you take the time to feature luxury options in your home design, you’ll get the opportunity to make it more to your own individual tastes, which will add to the joy of owning your home for years to come.
