George Nettles, Denver CO – I read an interesting article in Realtor Magazine that may interest our web site readers, entitled:
5 Popular Luxury Amenities
- Wet rooms: These rooms boast multiple types of shower heads, a steam feature, and a bench to sit or lie down.
- Infinity pools: These seemingly endless pools are often being combined with a fire feature — such as standing urns — that reflects on the water at night.
- Media centers: High-end media centers that include comfortable seating, high-def TVs, cameras for videoconferencing, and digitally controlled sound systems are being topped off with extra amenities like a wet bar, small catering kitchen, and a refrigerator.
- Wood finishes: More high-end homes are paying careful attention to grain patterns for wood finishes for a more consistent look and focusing on elaborate staining processes that may include up to eight steps.
- Wine cellar: It’s “more than just a closet with wine in it — it’s an intimate entertaining space,” says Malcolm Morris, an architect and owner of MDM Development Architecture, based in Chicago. “Some are in the style of a castle grotto with stone and wood and a little table to have dessert, even within the wine cellar. The lack of windows increases the level of intimacy.”
