The word ‘luxury’ can have quite a tricky of meaning behind it, with each person’s understanding of what constitutes something as luxurious being specific to their own tastes.
The problem is when we fall in the trap of excess and there is a display of wealth and grandeur equate a lavish lifestyle, which not necessarily means “luxurious”.
For any architect, our target is to find our client’s personal understanding of luxury, and only then we can define something is subtle and sophisticated. But , you will ask us, how can lavish elegance be met with the warmth and coziness necessary for a family home?
How can opulence be moderated yet still be desirable?

Some amenities that are common components in creating a luxury home are Marble, hardwood, wood cladding, crystal, and top quality appliances.
Great interior finishes plays a great role but the exterior and its surrounding grounds as landscaping makes a home luxurious.
Today we would like to discuss what are the key elements that will make a home “home” and luxurious in same time.

Smart systems and home security are very important features if wanting a luxurious homes. The drapes, air conditioning systems, lights and gadgets are operable via smartphone apps as so are the music and security systems.
Home security is one of the extraordinary elements of the modern luxury home.

luxury kitchens and most wanted dressing
Kitchen and dressing plays a very important role in every home, but having them separately, this is what makes it luxurious.
Of course,the kitchen should have uniquely-designed function and be an attractive space, with large counter tops, and latest appliances, fittings and finishes. Smart system drawers and walk-in pantries are all part and parcel of having a luxury kitchen.
The dressing room is an extension of the bedroom.
A high priority for luxury homes is to provide owners a place to store and display high-end garments.
A walk-in closet with proper designed lighting, mirrors and racks to display purses and shoes is a must-have.
Perhaps the interior design of the home is the aspect that is most significant in maintaining a luxurious yet tactful style, filled with clean shapes and an elegant use of space rather than overloading with ornate and unnecessary decoration.
Even if your budget don’t allow extreme features, still clean contemporary shapes , quality finishes and great few smart elements can give your home that feeling of ” luxury”.
The ultimate luxury is being able to relax and enjoy your home.Jeff Lincoln
