10 Cool Features for Your New Luxury Home
Well Equipped Kitchen
A well-equipped kitchen features commercial-grade appliances, kitchen islands, and seating in a stylish cooking area. In today’s technology driven world, smart apppliances and multiple outlets are important considerations. You’ll want to be sure to have enough outlets in your kitchen to run your favorite appliances and devices.
It is often said, “The kitchen is the most important room in your house design.” That is because, generally, the kitchen is the center of your family’s day-to-day living. Read more about our thoughts on a well equipped kitchen in our post “Why the kitchen is the most important room in your custom home design.”
Master Retreat / Spa Bathroom Suite
The master bathroom / suite and kitchen are the most important rooms in your home especailly if you think you might sell at some time in the future. They are also where you will undoubtedly spend much of your time.
It used to be that the master bath tub was the focal point of every bathroom design. Usually on a platform, they were surrounded with marble or tile and perhaps featured a jucuzzi. Consistent with the trend toward creating a bathroom spa in your master suite, today many luxury homeowners are opting for a freestanding bathtub with no platform, no steps. Thought of as soaking tubs, these beautiful pieces of furniture now very much in vogue and are often complimented by larger custom showers.
The trend now is to create a master suite / spa bathroom that is a place of peace and solitude. For many, it is a home version of a luxury spa evoking your intended feeling: serene, restful, restorative. In fact, we’ve written a separate blog post about how to Make your bathroom a master suite retreat.
His and Hers Master Closets
It’s the space where you start each day. Its where you get ready for work, for play, for the going out. So its ideal if your master closet is designed to help keep your day organized for you. We outlined some things to keep in mind about creating cool master closet spaces in our post Great Master Bedroom Closet Ideas.
Work environements are rapidly evolving. For many, a portion or all of their work is done remotely at a home location. That’s why the home office has become more than just a lavish home study. A true work from home environment is now an important feature in your luxury home design.
You can learn more about how we incorporate a stylish and functional home office in our post “When the Office is Right at Home.”
Another cool feature and growing trend in luxury home design is to include a wine room in your design. If you are a serious wine enthusiast, there are some important factors to keep in mind for your home design. We share the four primary factors in our post Building a Wine Room in Your New Home.
Theater / Media Rooms
Theater rooms, game rooms and media rooms remain popular additional rooms in custom home designs. We just finished a home with a theater room that we’re guessing will get a lot of use this fall!
Laundry and Mudd Rooms
Big family or small, one of the spaces that always gets a lot of use is the Landry room. Given how much time is spent there, the trend to build elegant, effecient laundry rooms makes sense.
In addition to your laundry room, you also need a place to bathe and care for your pets as well as a coat rack and shoe bin that is out of the way.

Outdoor Living Area / Putting Greens
With the beautiful weather in West Central Florida, a fully functional outdoor kitchen and living area is a must from many homeowners.
Complete with a top-of-the-line grill, refrigerator, and sink to make outdoor cooking a breeze and an outdoor living room or seating area to relax with guests and family, these are really cool spaces. Other popular and fine options for an outdoor living space are custom designed pools, landscapes and water features and for the cooler months, an outdoor fireplace.
The most recent trend we love? Adding a putting green to your outdoor living space.
Once called a living room, the space have been transformed. We call them great rooms that reunite the kitchen and outdoor living area creating a centralized living space. Great rooms provide and open floor plan that are at once versatile and functional, while making a statement about the owner’s personality. What makes a cool great room?
