Have you ever been to a lovely hotel and longingly wished your home felt a little more luxurious the way your holiday accommodation does? Much as there is ‘no place like home’ most of us have felt this at some point and longed to achieve the same feeling of indulgence and luxe at home that we have enjoyed elsewhere. Here at Lifton Home Lifts, we have put together a list of five ways you could give your home a feeling of luxury to spoil yourself and impress your guests.
A spa bathroom
Installing a modern luxury bathroom will ultimately help you relax, add class to your home and enhance the value of your property. In our fast paced lifestyle it can be hard to find the time to really wind down at home. With a little work, you can transform your bathroom into a relaxing haven to give you the perfect antidote to a busy lifestyle.
Consider introducing a whirlpool bath to help relieve tension at the end of the day, nothing can soothe your worries away, not to mention any aching muscles, like a relaxing bubble bath. Look at the latest luxury showers too, as well as large rain effect shower heads, modern ones offer thermostatic controls to allow you to select both temperature and water flow. This results in the ideal shower to suit your mood.
High quality appliances
For many, the kitchen is the heart of the home and we use it to cook, dine and entertain in. So, whether it is the built-in large appliances like the refrigerator or oven or a counter top bean to cup coffee maker, this is the place where many of our luxury brands can be found. However, if you are not looking to update your kitchen and change these, perhaps it is the living room that could do with a refresh. Entertainment and sound systems have moved on a lot in the last few years with the introduction of smart technology that enables you to control your speakers from your voice and you can even update your thermostat to allow you to control your heating from your phone or tablet too.
The right lighting can make every room a perfect space. From beautiful chandelier style overhead lights to add sparkle and a beautiful effect to the room to soft wall lights and feature lamps, the right combination for a room can completely transform its look and ambience. Check that your lighting suits your needs and the design of your room. If you have gradually re-organised your living room and changed the furniture, it is easy to overlook whether the lighting still suits the room. Pick up an interiors magazine or check out Pinterest for inspiration and to see some of the latest in lighting products, or better still, visit your nearest department store or lighting showroom where you can see the lights you admire in their full dazzling glory.
No home will feel truly luxurious without going through the process of de-cluttering, simplifying and organising your spaces. This is the one thing we notice most when we stay in a hotel, the beautiful clear surfaces, which enables the features, whether that’s the luxurious soft furnishings, the impressive flat screen TV or the stylish furniture, to stand out. Start small, choose a room and be thorough. Sort out the contents of all the storage in the room and make sure that the items you have out on display are still those you love the most.
A luxury home lift
A domestic lift can add a touch of luxury to your home, bringing with it a fantastic practical benefit. There is a certain wow factor to being able to move from floor to floor at the push of a button. Modern home lifts are far removed from the space consuming, noisy domestic lifts we might recall from years gone by and they are far from ‘medical’ in their look and feel. A contemporary, stylish Lifton Home Lift can blend beautifully with your décor, is whisper quiet to run, takes up minimal space and will add a stamp of excellence to your property. In fact, it will most likely add to its value just the same as investing in a beautiful kitchen or bathroom. Their clever technology and expertly engineered design add something very special as well as ensuring that should you or family members ever struggle with the stairs, your home is already future proofed.
