Five Luxury Home Remodeling Ideas

Luxury Home Kitchen

Everyone enjoys a little luxury at home. Or a lot of it. You can upgrade your home in a major way or just add a few features at a time to lift its appeal. These five luxury home remodeling ideas will make your home (more) luxurious and add to its value while improving your quality of life.

Go Eco-Friendly

Being friendly to the environment and lessening our carbon footprint is good for the planet and for everyone. There are more than a few ways to achieve this eco-friendly living with luxury home remodeling. In this day and age, eco-friendly often means energy efficient as well.

  • Use reclaimed materials, especially to provide a rustic or industrial design. Lumber from old warehouses, railways, bridges and wharves makes for stunning features, beams, flooring and fixtures.
  • Install energy efficient windows, especially using smart window technology that shades and tints your windows automatically according to the light conditions or at the touch of your smartphone.
  • Go solar or geothermal for heating/cooling your home.
  • Use low-VOC paints (volatile organic compounds).
  • Re-insulate with earth-friendly materials.
  • Install energy efficient appliances.

By the way, being eco-friendly also means donating or reusing materials salvaged from your remodeling job.

Dark, Sleek, Modern Kitchens

Out of all luxury home remodeling ideas, the kitchen gets the most attention by far. After all, it’s the hub of the home. How about upgrading the floor from tile to slate, or travertine, or granite? Use large pieces/tiles to limit the seams.

To upgrade to a sleek modern look, use smooth surfaces with definable lines. Metallic-covered cabinets and brushed aluminum islands add depth and texture as well as a European chic factor. Otherwise dark woods look amazing with stainless steel, chrome or nickel-plated hardware.

While you’re at it, talk to your contractor about rewiring the kitchen for new lights and quad outlets, but also for multimedia networking.

Additions and Remodels for a Touch of Class

A little remodeling with luxury touches should make your home a destination where everyone wants to go. It should also add value. Not just the home gym or media room…

  • A steam or meditation room.
  • Private bar.
  • Wine tasting room.
  • Cigar lounge.

It can all be designed and done just for you.

Luxurious Bathroom Re-Do

While you can still have 6-person Jacuzzi tubs and bathrooms the size of a New York apartment, more “in” these days are large showers, steam showers, standalone feature tubs, sleek cabinetry, marble counters and floors, under-floor heating, heated towel rails, and a sauna.

Extreme Filtration

Your home remodel should also do something good for your health. Start with a HVAC system. Then talk to your contractor about whole-home electrostatic filtration. This is added to the HVAC ductwork. Dirty air gets hit with a high-voltage blast that charges the particles. The plates in the system exert an opposite charge that attracts those particles. Then the system removes dander, mites, pollen, even smoke. Do this and you will always have an immaculate home.

These five home remodeling ideas, and many others, will update your home and increase its value, while also providing you with a little well-earned luxury.
