When searching for that perfect luxury home, keep in mind that you shouldn’t have to wait for a vacation to really kick back and enjoy time with your family and friends. You have to find the home that will allow you to feel like you are on vacation every day. Luxury homes should be enjoyable for everyday living as well as entertaining. They should include both family gathering spots as well as plenty of private cozy nooks for everyone and anyone. This applies within the home, but also using the outdoors as an extension of the home with outdoor living/entertaining areas. In the luxury market, these outdoor spaces can be just as captivating as inside living areas.
Luxury outdoor living areas generally focus around a sparkling in-ground pool. The pools vary in size and shape, but they add so much to the outdoor space. They are usually surrounded by beautiful patio tables, comfortable lounge chairs and plenty of umbrellas to provide shade from the sun. This is also a place for a spa and perhaps a waterfall, spectacular lighting, and plenty of vibrant, grand landscaping. Also common around the pool area are other necessities for entertaining… outdoor kitchens, (for a great piece on the latest trends in outdoor kitchens, check out this article by Rismedia) built-in grills, fireplaces, bars, and surround sound music systems.
