Building new homes is what we do on a daily basis, so at Exclusive Residence we get to see some of the most amazing trends in luxury home designs in Perth. If you’re thinking about adding a bit more class to your project, here are a few features that can make really good statements in your house.
A sweeping staircase
There are two ways to make a stairway grand. You can focus on size, or you can hone in on clever implementation. For example, when you step into an entrance hall and see a wide stairway heading up towards a landing, with polished wood bannisters or gracefully curved wrought iron, a certain sense of grandeur is achieved.
If you want to make the most of space, but still want a staircase that inspires, material choice is key. Floating wooden steps with glass balustrades can create an open feel, with light streaming through what could be a dark area. Another great feature is a wrought iron spiral staircase.
Most modern floor plans have done away with long, dark passageways and small rooms. These kinds of designs can inhibit the flow of light and air, making it harder to keep your home comfortable all year round.
By choosing an open floor plan, you not only improve the practicality of your space, but you can also open up your decor palette. Open living areas can often be rearranged for an entirely different floorplan or function if you feel the need for change.
There are very few things that say ‘refinement’ better than polished stone from the hills of Italy. However, it’s easy for people to make the mistake of quantity over quality. Instead of overwhelming your kitchen or bathroom with marble tiles or granite benches, try and implement these finishes in a more subdued manner.
A feature wall can help your chosen tile standout, where floor-to-ceiling wall coverings on every visible surface can make a room appear crowded or gaudy, reducing the refined and elegant effect of the material you’ve chosen. Highly decorative natural stone bench tops can also be overpowering if used in abundance, so try and limit these to smaller surface areas, such as bathroom vanities. A nice finish can still be applied to large spaces, such as an expansive kitchen, but a more neutral tone will be easier to mix and match everything else with.
No matter what features and finishes you choose, you can be sure the implementation will be spot on. When you work with Exclusive Residence, you get one-on-one time with an award wining interior designer who can help you pick the perfect style for your luxury home.
