Everyone loves to come home to a mansion. But in reality, only a few of us can afford this type of lavish lifestyle. Yet we can all feel like we’re living a luxurious life by modifying our spaces and adding items that speak the language of the affluent.
The prices of homes have skyrocketed in the last couple of years. And while this has been blamed on a reciprocal effect from the great recession along with market issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, home remodels during this upward market trend have been highly prioritized.
The truth is, you can get as creative as you like with your place to make it feel just the way you want. But if you’d like to envision yourself living among the finer things in life, a few simple installments can help you to meet this goal.
Here, we’ll discuss a few remodel items that you must have if you want to allow a bit of glamor into your home.
It’s often said, you can’t be glamorous without being a little bit vain. But even if you’re the modest type, having a bathroom vanity is not all about staring at your reflection. In fact, the bathroom vanities of today are much more functional and practical.
It wasn’t too long ago when vanities included a large ornate mirror that may cost a fortune in itself. But today, bathroom vanities are more focused on storage and design rather than cosmetics.
While a makeup vanity will serve a different purpose entirely, a bathroom vanity will be where you’ll store your towels, washcloths, toilet paper, and an array of other bathroom essentials. But if you’re looking to add a bit of glamor into your life, the style of your vanity is what matters the most.
Today’s vanity styles offer sleek bowl sinks, Japanese style washing stations, granite countertops, and even minimalist qualities with simplistic hardware and brassware that can make your vanity look like it belongs in Beverly Hills.
If you’re into entertainment, having a bar in your home might be the best addition for hosting lavish parties while also inviting a bit of cosmopolitan flair into your home. And if you’re a part-time mixologist, this will offer you the perfect environment to practice your bar craft.
Home bars are often popular elements of luxurious homes, and today, you can have a simple home bar placed in any room that lends itself to a plethora of styles.
For example, a few popular home bars include a focal wall incorporating many different styles. A few of these styles are as follows:
- Ship’s Interior style
- Urban unfinished concrete
- Exposed brick
- Subway tiles
- Mirrored walls
- Industrial corrugated tin
- Chalkboard walls
- Broken slate
- Marble or granite
Basically, you can create a focal wall that allows your bar to be an area where your guest will want to gather. And don’t forget to stock your bar with all the essentials. After all, you can’t live the cosmopolitan life without knowing how to make a proper cosmo.
A sunroom is often part of larger homes as a simple addition that allows for light to enter a home. And in a mansion, sunrooms often remain unoccupied. But a sunroom offers much more than a place for sunlight to enter your home.
A sunroom can be used for a variety of purposes, and they often are. But when designing your sunroom, you really need to think about what purpose it will serve for you. A few examples of what a sunroom can be used for are as follows:
- Herb gardens
- Grow rooms
- Reading rooms
- Art studios
- Music studios
- Yoga studios
- Home gyms
As you can see, the possibilities are all entirely up to you and the function that you want your sunroom to serve. No matter what you choose, allowing natural light to enter your home will always be a bonus.
Additionally, if you’re looking to brighten up your space, a few of the more common areas for sunrooms to be placed are adjacent to a den, near the back of the home, or as an extension of a deck or porch.
We might not all be able to claim to live a lifestyle of the rich and famous, but we can certainly feel like we’re living the good life simply by adding a few elements of glamor to our homes. And with a little creativity and design, you can have that touch of glamor without completely emptying your wallet.
