Owning a luxury home is the dream of every person. The continuous springing up of luxury homes or apartments in Mumbai has acted as a catalyst to the changing economies of this city. As income is going up people are increasingly seeking to invest in a luxury home.
The emerging market of luxury apartments in the country is due to an increase in the demand of modern living in all parts of the country. Mumbai, known for lifestyle and culture, is the hot destination for premier apartment. Such apartments are considered as a reflection of social status among the rich class.
Most of you think about living with Luxury, a house which is having all the modern amenities, good furniture, dedicated spaces for almost everything in a house and you don’t need to think about space adjustments. Inspite of including all the world class things, we feel something is still missing in our home to make it stand out with the other houses. Very few of us enjoy the blessing of owning a house with a beautiful view.A home which is having a beautiful view completely meets all the luxuries a person is in search for! But is it only about the view which gives the tag of luxury to a home? Some may prefer their house in a beautiful locality, some may need it near a secluded space to their terms of luxury, some may need it a small space with all amenities, some may need to get upgraded to a bungalow or to a 3/4 BHK apartment, or for some people luxury might include owning their own house. So in a broader sense if we discuss luxury home definition differs from person to person.
If we talk only about the amenities for luxury then while buying such kind of premier apartment it is necessary to keep certain things in mind which includes space, location, floor to ceiling height, elevators, amenities and view.
A luxury home should comprise of 3-4 Bedrooms with attached washrooms and balconies in each room. It should have a designated dining room, servant’s room and store room is recently added to luxury homes. It should comprise of a big hall and expansive kitchen as well. Open floor plans have become the desired interior floor plan trend. The modern luxury homes do not see separate areas like the kitchen and the dining room. They all come together as one large living space for a more comfortable and flexible living experience. More and more luxury home buyers are nowadays citing open plan spaces as number one criteria when considering a luxury home. It should be kept in mind that in any case space should not be wasted. Every corner of the space should be utilized in some way.
A luxury home should be located in the heart of the city, the connectivity should be great and the environment should be great, moreover, it is good if there are wide roads with less to no traffic problems. A convenient location is one of the most important aspects that must be considered while choosing a luxury apartment. A centrally-located apartment is preferable for HNIs who want to stay in close proximity to important places like airports, business districts, railway stations, etc. At the same time, such a location could also be marred by issues such as traffic congestion, noise and pollution. True luxury is defined by a careful balance of connectivity and general ambiance.
Floor to Ceiling Height
A luxury home’s floor to ceiling height should be 12 feet or more than that. If this particular thing is not fulfilled then the home doesn’t fall under the luxurious category. Any luxury home is ought to fulfil this criterion. Taller ceilings provide a feeling of spaciousness, elegance and help in keeping the room cooler. Large, floor-to-ceiling windows, offering splendid views truly compliment high-ceiling interiors. Tall ceilings had made its mark in luxury housing.
The elevators should be big and spacious. There should be dedicated elevators for servants and household needs. The capacity of the elevators should be good enough to carry heavy loads. Along with the spaciousness and other things the lift should be reliable and of best brand. Elevators can cost your life if they are not carrying the safety measures for a person’s life. Elevators which have proved themselves at world class levels are Otis, Schindler, Kone, Mitsubishi Electric, etc.
Security is the most important aspect of luxury homes. No compromise is made in terms of security. Enhanced, state-of-the-art modern security facilities should be installed in the house. Besides human security in the form of round-the-clock security personnel, electronic surveillance units should be installed in each and every corner of the property. Luxury homes have higher levels of security. Emergency buzzers, intercoms, fire chutes and top of the line security installation ensure a stress free life. Many high end homes provide solar generators, home automation, accident and medical emergency, relief rooms, natural disaster bunkers, and safe rooms in terms of terrorist attack.
Luxury homes are often chosen if their balconies offer a perfect view. Sometimes luxury homes are built such that it makes you view the sunrise as well as sunset. A luxury home without a good view is same as the normal home. If one needs to buy a luxury home its view is the crucial aspect. The window view available from an apartment is also an important aspect. A project may be genuinely luxurious in its specifications and amenities. However, if it overlooks a hyper-busy highway or anything else that is not soothing to the eyes and sensibilities of the occupants (such as a slum, graveyard or even a hospital) then both habitation value and rental/resale potential of the apartment may take a beating. The availability of super-rich amenities such as a rooftop swimming pool and Jacuzziin every bathroom will not make a difference when the very basic ingredient of a luxurious living experience is absent.
Nowadays all modern amenities are the essential part of the luxurious homes. These amenities mostly include a clubhouse, gymnasium, swimming pool, children play area, garden area, jogging area and a hall big enough so that small functions can be organised. Sometimes these luxury homes also offer a terrace garden along with squash courts. HNIs investing in a luxury apartment want the best that money can buy. Luxury homes are meticulously designed to offer maximum comfort, with attractive interiors and cutting-edge facilities. Premium residential projects must offer state-of-the-art facilities such as landscaped gardens, stylish living rooms with LED televisions, sleek and fully-equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi, multiple parking, fast elevators, 24-hour security and gymnasiums.
Low Saturation of Neighbours
The exclusiveness of a luxury home also depends on the number of people residing in the building or society who share amenities.
Backyards and spacious patios are a symbol of luxury. Other features which define luxurious indoor/outdoor living entail floor to ceiling doors which seamlessly slide into the wall and open into a backyard, outdoor kitchens with outdoor seating, water elements like an infinity pool, a fire pit, to name a few. Permeable paving and drought tolerant plants for water efficient irrigation constitute other luxury features for swanky indoor and outdoor living. Out-of-the-box features such as outdoor showers and meditation gardens further add to the beauty of a luxury home.
A luxury home should be exclusive, tailored while keeping in mind the homeowner’s comfort. Apart from fancy finishes and decorations, it should be aesthetically appealing, with world-class architecture and interior design. It can also be customised according to the client’s lifestyle or individuality by interior designers, developers, home stagers and other seasoned professionals who contribute to the luxury real estate.
