If you live in a property which is already considered a luxury home, you may find it difficult to think of ways to add to the overall value of your property. Many luxury homes have either been built or renovated so that everything is of the highest quality possible, and changing this may feel like a false economy, so thinking outside the box is essential if you want to truly add value while also enhancing the quality of your luxury home. Here are five things that you can do to your property which will potentially both increase the value and maintain its high end feel:
Add a Lift
One relatively simple way to add value to your luxury home is bye installing a luxury home lift. Here in the UK having an elevator inside a family home is very unusual, which means that your home will already have an extra selling point that others in the same price range probably will not have. As well as giving your home a luxury feel, home lifts are actually surprisingly practical as they will increase the accessibility for elderly and disabled people and will also make moving heavy pieces of furniture between the floors of your home much easier.
While many luxury properties will have a driveway which is large enough to allow you to drive in and out, some properties such as those in expensive places in London, will have a smaller driveway thanks to the urban surroundings. One way that you can make your life significantly easier is by installing a car turntable. This is an automatic turning device which is added to your driveway which allows you to drive in and then have your car automatically turned around so that you can drive back out again. They are an ultra modern and attractive way to add both value and kerb appeal to your luxury property.
Electric Car Charging Port
Many new build properties actually have charging ports for electric cars as standard, but if your property was built before a certain time there’s a good chance that you will not already have this feature. Adding an electric car charging port either inside your garage or on your driveway will make your property more attractive to buyers and will potentially add value as this is something that the new owners will not have to have installed themselves. Eco-features are widely sought-after by homeowners these days and adding them yourself will get you ahead of the curve.
Today’s homeowners want it all when it comes to technology, and the builders that cater to this tech-trend are the ones who stay at the top of the real estate market. Literally, with a touch of a button on your iPhone you can now lock your doors, control your home’s climate, control lights and control your alarm system, all from the other side of the country! These are the built-in features that today’s luxury homebuyers are looking for.
Modern luxury homes may have all the technology and high-end luxury features you can cram into, but nothing beats having special living spaces like secret rooms! These secret rooms are rooms where the entrance or the door is hidden from the rest of the home, but it can be anything that you want it to be, and as well as adding a fun design quirk, they don’t have to cost a fortune to create. A secret room can be behind a bookshelf or an obscure wall, and when opened, is a secret retreat from the rest of the world, or at the very least, the rest of the household. A secret room can also act as a security and safety measure.
