1. Blended Indoor and Outdoor Living Spaces

One of today’s most prominent luxury trends is the blending of indoor and outdoor spaces, or lavish outdoor living spaces that blend seamlessly with indoor areas. The backyard has been transformed from an area of child birthday parties and Fourth of July barbecues to an island oasis, fully stocked with cohesive and functional areas. Luxury buyers are adding everything from expansive pools with waterfalls and grottos to complete outdoor kitchens with built-in barbecues and stainless steel refrigerators. 

The sky is truly the limit in terms of usage of your outdoor space. Other features include hot tubs, changing cabanas, fire pits, koi ponds, and more. To blend this outdoor living space seamlessly with your indoor living space, many luxury homeowners are opting for floor to ceiling glass doors that open directly into the backyard.

2. Smart Home Technology

What modern luxury living excels at is the incorporation of smart home technology and devices that allow you to manage and monitor all systems inside and outside of the house. Whether your task is making sure all the doors are locked before you go to bed, controlling the thermostat, turning off the sprinkles, or simply cutting the lights, you can get the job done from almost anywhere in the world with a push of a button on your smartphone. It’s also a great security measure as you can monitor any security cameras or systems and be notified when motion is detected. What’s better than curtains that automatically open and close at sunrise or sunset or a thermostat that adjusts automatically according to the weather outside? 

3. Spa Bathrooms

Luxury homeowners want to recreate the feeling of a world-class spa or resort inside their bathrooms. Once again, the options are limitless and may include walk-in showers, rain showers, steam showers, heated floors, double vanities, saunas, touch screen mirrors, and more. For energy efficiency, you can have high efficiency showerheads and faucets installed. For that natural and organic appeal, we recommend a sunken bathtub, wood elements, natural stone, and skylights for ambiance. 

4. Home Gyms

Last but not least, more and more luxury homeowners are opting for extensive training facilities inside their home to accommodate their active lifestyles, such as home gyms. Apart from ample space for weights and equipment, these home gyms often include televisions, wireless speakers, saunas, and indoor pools for post-workout relaxation.
