Luxury ideas for your next home
Luxury home builders in Melbourne have so many high end options to choose from. Here are some of our favourites to shortlist if you are considering building your dream home.
As another high use room, the bathroom can be updated to have a touch of luxury or become designer from floor to ceiling, depending on your budget.
For a higher end finish, not only will there be delicious underfloor heating and warming towel racks for those in colder climates, but you might consider relocating the bath to the centre of the room. A dressing area, storage and large light up vanities surround the walls. Your shower is dual head at least, and natural light and a private garden view is expected. There’ll be seating and even a television on hand to entertain you as you unwind from your hectic day.
Not only one, but two kitchens is the standard in today’s luxury homes. A butler’s pantry will provide additional storage and the mess of food preparation is hidden as they are located near, but separated from your main kitchen. Your central kitchen will have seamlessly integrated smart appliances and design that doesn’t visually indicate that it’s a high tech space. If part of an open plan design, there’ll be ample seating and benchtops for dual use and the space for several people to cook at once. Today’s luxury kitchens have ovens and fridges at waist height to minimise lifting and bespoke, custom made cabinetry would be standard to maximise the space you have available. A climate controlled cellar at your feet of the kitchen is also a highly desirable feature for those who enjoy a tipple.
Also on the topic of technology, the rest of your house is, of course, enabled with high speed wireless, but you’ll also have an application with which to control your heating/cooling, lights, security and even front door if you wish. Advanced photovoltaic glass for the windows not only powers your home and stores excess in an additional battery pack, but will soon be able to become fully smart glass that can display weather, news or any online info on your bedroom mirror as you dress for the day. As your home is now enabled with this technology, you’ll also be able to measure its performance as it captures data about itself, helping you to know when repairs are necessary or when a breech of your security has occurred.
Greenery has been shown to be beneficial for mental and physical well-being so providing your new home with sufficient outdoor space is essential. Trees, grass and flowers of your choosing will brighten your day, but should be coordinated to have colour all year round. For a smaller block, you might consider a roof top garden of sorts that provides a garden with a view. Gardens can be rather water hungry, so install some grey water options or even a rain garden to help you keep it looking lush.
