Details That Make a Home Luxurious
Here in SoCal, it’s somewhat rare to find abundant square footage, but with an average of 263 days of sunshine, many people still look to call this area home. So, while you may not find a home with an adjacent carriage house, you can find luxury details in smaller homes or even beach cottages.
Here are a few things to look for when it comes to truly luxury properties.
It’s hard to put a price on a view. Even if you don’t have a spectacular Pacific Ocean view, a bay, city or mountain view can still soothe the soul. A well-landscaped courtyard also can bring in a touch of the outdoors inside. Don’t overlook a great landscape as a wonderful view. A variety of colorful blooms is always a bonus for high-end homeowners.
Look for great flooring options that are durable and easy to keep clean. Limestone will always stand the test of time. Plus, it’s a natural stone, which goes well with almost any décor. Hardwood flooring is also a great choice for more formal areas. Marble works great for bathrooms.
Top it Off with a Crown
Crown molding makes any room look great. It adds a touch of elegance to any room. Crown molding has an abundance of profiles and gives a wonderfully luxurious feel without a lot of additional costs. We think it makes a room feel more finished. Plus, it draws your vision upward and highlights wonderful ceilings.
Having touches of lighting throughout a home can make each room feel more inviting and luxurious. Small LED backlit lighting features are now becoming more main stream and offering homeowners a way to accent outdoor areas, kitchen cabinetry, staircases, hallways, closets, and even media rooms. The ability to dim lighting to match a mood will help to bring in a more high-end look. In addition to LED lighting, higher-end lighting fixtures add a more visual elegance to any room.
Kitchens can outdate quickly, upgrading an existing home or finding one that has more recent updates will give you a richer feel. High-end cabinetry is something that should never be overlooked. A well thought-out kitchen gives homeowners a chance to prepare meals and unwind with family and friends with ease. Top off cabinets with countertops that bring in visual appeal by using stone, touches of marble or even glass.
