Luxury Home Upgrades to Transform Your Space

If you are considering building a custom home or updating your current residence , you may be considering which features to add to your wishlist. From technological enhancements to design components, there are certain elements that can elevate your home to the next level. Details such as these can make all the difference when it comes to creating a space that compliments your lifestyle and personal taste.

Continue reading to discover luxury home upgrades that will transform your home into the ultimate coastal oasis.

1. Coastal Landscaping

    The landscaping surrounding your property greets your guests even before they step inside your home. To create a coastal outdoor ambiance, consider planting vibrant flowers or even creating a charming southern garden. Plants that thrive in coastal environments include lilyturf, beach roses, sea lavender, and Adam’s needle among many others. To make even more of a statement, consider planting palmetto trees to frame your luxury home.

    2. Smart Home Technology

      Smart home technology, or home automation, is the future of luxury living. The term refers to the use of technology to automate your home and simplify your life. A central home automation system can take care of everything including controlling your lights, thermostat, security, TVs, speakers, and more. This can provide the ease of living while also giving you peace of mind when you are away from home.

      If you are an avid cook, you may also want to invest in smart technology specifically for your kitchen. A smart refrigerator can let you know what items you may need to buy, while a smart oven and dishwasher can be controlled from anywhere. That way, you can preheat your oven while you're on your way home or run your dishwasher while you’re relaxing on the beach.

      3. Home Fitness Room

        When it comes to working out, maintaining a consistent routine can be difficult. If you struggle to stay active, a home fitness center may be a worthwhile luxury home upgrade. When your gym is located in your home, you can easily fit in workouts between errands and other activities.

        When selecting a location to transform into your home gym, consider a room located near a bathroom that allows for plenty of natural light. That way, you can quickly and easily head to the shower once you have completed your workout. To make your home fitness center feel luxurious, consider adding glass walls and state-of-the-art equipment. Interactive fitness systems can also help to guide you through your workouts so you’re never bored. With all of these features and the upscale design, you will actually look forward to staying active in your home fitness center.

        4. Spa-Inspired Bathroom

          An opulent bathroom inspired by Spa Montage is a must-have in any luxury home at the Bluff. To create this spa-like atmosphere lean toward neutral colors that promote tranquility. Add features that are perfect for pampering yourself, such as a sauna, a freestanding bathtub, and a waterfall shower. These luxury details will transform your bathroom into a relaxing oasis that you can escape to after a long day.

          5. Statement Lighting

            Although often overlooked, lighting plays an important role in setting the mood of a room and creating ambiance. A statement light fixture can elevate any space in your home and provide a luxurious feel. For an elegant focal point, consider adding a crystal chandelier above your foyer. Or, for a more modern vibe, consider a uniquely shaped pendant to draw the eye of visitors in a contemporary fashion.

            6. Floor-to-Ceiling Windows

              When your luxury home is also situated in a picturesque setting, you want to make the most of your breathtaking views. Adding floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the interior with sunlight will allow you to admire the surrounding scenery, while also creating a modern aesthetic. As a result, you will enjoy a seamless connection between your home and the lush Lowcountry landscape.

              7. Indoor-Outdoor Living

                Not only will outdoor living areas increase the value of your home, but they will also make you the most popular neighbor on the block! When living in a place with such beautiful weather year-round, the outdoors is truly the best gathering space to host parties, barbecues, and more.

                To make your outdoor living spaces feel extra luxurious, consider adding an outdoor kitchen to prepare delicious food while entertaining guests. Televisions are also wonderful additions to your outdoor living area allowing you to watch sporting games and host movie nights under the stars.

                8. Wine Cellar

                  If you are a wine connoisseur, a personal wine cellar may be a wonderful addition to your luxury home. With temperature control that protects your wine for years to come, this feature will allow you to grow your collection with confidence, all while adding value to your home.

                  9. Interior Elevator

                    If you are planning to retire in your home, an interior elevator may be one of the most practical luxury home upgrades. This way, you are prepared and can still access your entire home if, in the future, you find it difficult to use the stairs. Plus, your visitors will think it's pretty cool too!
