The definition of luxury is “the state of great comfort and extravagant living.” That being said, what may be extravagant to one person may not be to someone else. Perspective plays a role in determining whether or not your home is considered luxurious, but there are a few tell tale signs that certainly indicate extravagance and great comfort!
Is My Home Luxurious?
Lets take a look. The following are signs that your home is in fact considered luxurious, regardless of someone’s impression of the way you live. It is the combination of these characteristics that will help in defining your home as luxurious.
While not everyone will enjoy living at the beach, beach living has the feeling of luxury all its own. Do you reside on a tropical island? Do you live at the top of a mountain? Location itself does not define luxury, but it does play a role.
Let’s face it. The more luxurious the home, the more expensive it will be. But location does play a part in the price of the home as well, so not every expensive home can be considered a luxury.
3. Style and Amenities
The largest factors in determining whether or not you’re living in luxury come down to the overall style and the amenities your home is adorned with. As per the definition, great comfort and extravagant living make a home luxurious. Does your home look like all the others in your neighborhood but have features that are considered extravagant like an indoor swimming pool? The pool would be luxurious, but not necessarily your home.
If your home is at the peak of the neighborhood, significantly different in style, large enough to sleep 8, each with their own bathroom? This type of home may be considered luxurious, compared to the others on the same street.
Luxurious homes often have at least a few of the following:
- A sauna room, spa-like space, or home gym that resemble that of a resort.
- A level dedicated to entertaining, maybe with movie theater style seating.
- A finished basement complete with bedrooms, a separate kitchen, and entertaining space.
- An indoor swimming pool.
- A garage for multiple cars, and possibly an extension for an RV or a boat.
- Extravagant decor like one of a kind artwork, sculptures, or chandeliers.
- Top of the line comfort in furniture.
- An outdoor entertaining space like a kitchen with a pool.
- More than one fireplace in the home.
As I said previously, not everyone has the same idea of what a luxury home is, but the signs provided in this post are a great way to determine if your home meets the luxury standard.
