We may drool over homes that we see on TV, wondering if we could ever have a home that measures up. The truth is that anyone can have the benefits of luxury living with the right adjustments made to a property. We’ll take a look at some of the most prominent features of luxury homes and how you can have them in your own home- all at a less-than-luxury price. 


Open Floor Plans


Homes with grand entryways, and elaborate architecture present as you enter tend to be a sign of luxury. However, the open floor plan is the most important part of a luxury home. This gives the feeling of open spaces, large rooms, and an airy feeling. Why wouldn’t you want to feel this way? Everyone can afford to make their home a bit more open simply by removing furniture or doing some simple remodeling.


Smart Homes Rule


A sign of a luxury home that’s actually readily accessible to everyone is that of a smart home. The more technology that’s present in the home, the more luxurious a home feels. Homeowners want every piece if technology that they can get their hands on when it comes to smart living. With the touch of a button, you can lock your doors, control the alarm system, or control your home’s climate. You don’t even have to be anywhere near your home to perform these operations. Installing wireless technologies is a great idea because they provide ease and a sense of security for homeowners. 


Be Environmentally Friendly 


If you decide to install some solar panels or build an addition to the home with reclaimed materials that could be very attractive to homebuyers. People are looking for ways to contribute to a better environment and save money at the same time. Environmentally friendly features in a home are very attractive to buyers. and provide a sense of luxury.


Outdoor Kitchen And Seating


An outdoor kitchen is truly a luxury item. People who are looking for a bit of luxury in their life look for a great outdoor living space. The kitchen should include a built-in grill, a sink, and a food prep area. You should also have adequate seating for this outdoor area. If you’re unable to install an entire kitchen, consider possibly installing just a built-in grill on its own. If you have the budget and the room, consider putting in a hot tub for the ultimate backyard of luxury. 


Game And Theater Rooms


If you have a room of the house that can be used as a home theater or a game room, you have a golden piece of luxury that many people crave. Separate entertainment spaces are really an item that not many homes have. If you can finish your basement and transform it into either a home theater, game room, or both, your property has a piece of luxury with it.  


If you want to sneak a peek into the lives of the rich and famous, now you can. Many prominent features of luxury homes are accessible to everyone with a bit of planning.

In the quest to find a new home that you love, there are two fundamental things you must know: how much you can realistically afford to spend and what you need to be happy.

Qualifying for a mortgage is one of the first hurdles on the road to home ownership, but loan approval doesn't necessarily mean you can comfortably afford a house you have your eye on.

There are other expenses to factor into the equation, such as closing costs, the down payment, school and property taxes, possible HOA fees, and maintenance costs.

If a house you're considering needs a lot of repairs, updating, and decorating, for instance, those projects could take a big bite out of your bank account and household budget. First-time home buyers and growing families moving into larger homes often have to consider the cost of furniture, new window treatments, and painting supplies. People moving from an apartment or condo to a house may also need to buy a lawnmower, tools, and property maintenance machinery (weed whackers, leaf blowers, snow blowers, etc.)

Once you've determined that you can absorb all those costs without being "house poor," the next step is creating a list of requirements, preferences, and lifestyle goals. For example, if privacy is important to you, you'll need to narrow your search to homes that have a sufficient amount of frontage and space between neighbors and streets. Fences, privacy hedges, and mature trees could also help provide you with the kind of living environment you're looking for.

While the emotional appeal of a house is an important aspect of home-buying decisions, the location of a property and the amount of living space it provides will play a central role in your level of satisfaction. In addition to having enough bedrooms, bathrooms, and storage space, you may also want to consider things like the home's architectural style and whether the floorplan is to your liking.

Many families prioritize the quality of the school district, the look and feel of the neighborhood, and the distance from shopping centers, recreation, and needed services. Also highly desirable is a daily commute to work that isn't too grueling or time consuming!

Since everyone has different goals and needs when it comes to finding the ideal home, there's no one-size-fits-all strategy for zeroing in on the house of your dreams. Although there are a lot of websites that provide great ideas on everything from flooring and countertops to cabinetry and room color, having your real estate agent show you houses that match your specifications is the most productive thing you can do.

Getting out there and physically viewing and walking through houses in your price range will eventually lead you to the home that's just right for you and your family. It's a process in which you need to immerse yourself, but with a little persistence and a clear idea of what you want, you're sure to find the home that checks off most (if not all) of the boxes on your priority and wish lists!
