When designing a luxury home, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of considerations to make, which can be incredibly overwhelming without the right guidance.
At Azure Luxury Homes, we take pride in designing and bringing stunning luxury homes to life, with a dedicated team who are committed to working with you throughout the entire process.
If you are in the midst of planning your dream home at the moment and you are looking for a little nudge in the right direction, you can read our tips below on the architecture must haves for luxury homes.
Home Architecture Must Have 1: Open Floor Plans
An open floor plan isn’t a new concept in home architecture, but it is a must-have for the modern luxury home. The term is used in architecture to describe a house where the walls between living spaces, such as a lounge, kitchen and dining room, have been removed to create a more open space.
Spaces such as bathrooms, bedrooms and home offices are generally excluded from the open plan layout, as these rooms tend to require a degree of privacy.
In the current home building market, open floor plans remain on-trend because they provide benefits such as improved natural light flow throughout the home, better pedestrian traffic flow and flexibility with space layouts.
For those who love to cook, the architecture of an open floor plan also makes the kitchen a focal point, allowing family to come together for breakfast or friends to join you for dinner and drinks in a large and inviting space.
Open floor plans add to the luxury feel of your home with an air of sophistication, effortlessly combined with the modern feel of the architecture.
Home Architecture Must Have 2: Modern, Affluent Kitchen & Bathroom Design
Kitchens and bathrooms are both important rooms in your home architecture; one is a hub of activity for friends and family while the other is our place of relaxation.
Perhaps the most important design element of both your kitchen and bathroom is the layout, with both rooms requiring a significant degree of practicality and planning over simply looks.
If you had to name a room as the true soul of your home, it would more than likely be the kitchen; kitchens aren’t just for cooking and enjoying a good meal, they are for family time, for entertaining and for coming together.
So when it comes to designing your kitchen, even the smallest, well-thought out design element can go on to improve the look and feel of the rest of your home.
When designing your kitchen with a luxury home builder like Azure Luxury Homes, details such as counter top and splashback materials, cupboard doors, lighting and fixture designs all have an impact on the overall ambience of your room.
Your bathroom acts as your own personal sanctuary, preparing you for the busy day ahead or helping you unwind from one.
Luxurious modern bathrooms are characterised by an actual or perceived amount of spaciousness, luxury fittings and finishes, clean lines and the right balance of textures; they are the kind of bathroom that homeowners can’t wait to come home to and guests don’t want to leave.
An affluent bathroom is worth the investment, not just for you and your family to enjoy, but also to increase your home value if you were to sell down the track, with homebuyers often paying particular interest to the bathroom design features.
Home Architecture Must Have 3: Backyard of Your Dreams
Our love affair with the outdoors means that many balmy summer nights are spent outdoors, with the sun setting over the Indian Ocean, casting our homes in a pink glow, while the sound of laughter and the smell of barbeques fills the air.
While we have always an appreciation for outdoor entertaining, the way we entertain is changing; more homeowners are opting to include outdoor kitchens in their home architecture, ensuring a fridge, counter space and sink are within arm’s reach of the cooking.
This brings the meal preparation, cooking and dining all outside, making it a more interactive experience for hosts and guests alike.
Pools have always had an air of opulence about them, even more so when their design and surrounding environment has been carefully considered. From timber decking overlooking the pool to natural stone pavers outlining the pools edges, water flowing gently from a water feature to an infinity design that gives your pool the design sophistication of a resort-style pool, there are many ways to personalise your pool design to reflect the style of your home.
