Top 5 Luxury Home Trends forecast for 2017
‘Broken plan living’ and ‘high tech homes’ were the buzz words in 2016. So, what should we expect to see at the top of the list in 2017? Luxury property development company, Lusso Homes, walks us through the top 5 trends to look out for this year:
1. The Pet Parlour
No, not just the usual utility room to keep your muddy pooch away from the furniture. We’re talking about a fully-fledged, canine creche. Alongside the human living space on the ground floor, you will soon be finding these kitted out areas in most luxury homes. Complete with underfloor heating, luxury dog beds, showers and overhead lamps to dry them off after a long, wet walk!
2. Upstairs Laundry Rooms
A very interesting new trend that has travelled over with our friends from across the Atlantic. It’s logical, when you think about it, to have the laundry room upstairs where all of the dirty laundry comes from! As well as this new space for washers and dryers, we are also seeing separate drying rooms which dry clothes in record time and keep them crease free.
3. Adventure Playgrounds
Gone are the days when just a swing and a slide could keep the little rascals entertained! Luxury homebuyers are now in search of playgrounds that would put the local park to shame. Fully equipped with everything from handcrafted woodwork tree houses to cycle paths and giant sand pits.
4. Submerging Swimming Pools
A brilliant idea that can give a luxury home the wow factor. The floor of the swimming pool rises up to become level with the floor of the room, cascading the pool water down beneath it. An incredible space saver that will leave your guests speechless (and green with envy!)
5. Top Floor Games Rooms
A huge flat screen and a pool table just aren’t enough anymore. The ultimate games room is now a hive of technology. Music, radio, and TV audio streamed via in-ceiling speakers from any smart device. Why would you ever leave?!
