6 hot trends in today’s luxury homes

trends for luxury high-end homesBeyond the great room, soaring, vaulted ceilings, amazing views and high-end communities, today’s luxury homes must stand out from the crowd. That’s why developers of homes and communities designed for upper echelon buyers are pulling out all the stops. Here’s a list of 6 hot trends that luxury buyers can appreciate:
1) Safety and Security
Luxury homebuyers are looking for a home that provides safety and security. That’s why whole house back-up generators, secure wireless home networks, state-of-the-art security systems and even safe rooms are in demand.
2) Unique, High-end Communities
Communities are more important to today’s luxury homebuyer then they ever were before, and we’re not talking about country clubs and golf communities. Consider one option: the Private Reserve community that offers an earth friendly option for the nature loving, environmentally conscious homebuyer.
3) Amazing Backyardsluxury home
Luxury homebuyers are looking for a backyard to relax and entertain in style. Think multiple gardens, top of the line outdoor accessories, swimming pools, tennis or multi-sport courts, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, pizza ovens and more.
4) Home Management Center
A room adjacent to the kitchen to use as a home management center is increasingly becoming popular. You can think of it as the perfect place for kids to do their homework and any family member surf the Internet.
5) Wellness rooms
Luxury homebuyers want their own steam rooms, saunas, massage rooms, home fitness facilities and media and game rooms. Home swim spas or treadmill-type pools are in particularly high demand with health conscious buyers.
6) His and Hersluxury inside pool
Take the his-and-hers idea to new levels: rather than just offering separate sides to a bathroom, think separate his-and-hers bathrooms, separate closets, dual dressing rooms, even garages, and individual living areas are increasingly common features in million-dollar properties. Gender-specific spaces may include yoga rooms, cigar rooms, reading rooms and putting greens by the pool.
These are just a few of the trends in today’s luxury homes. You can find more in the publication for architecture and fine interiors, Home & Design Magazine.
