For most, the idea of designing and buildign their dream home usually began by looking at newly built homes or resale homes on the market first. As there is nothing wrong with proceeding with this option, most people that decide to build have determined that there are just too many unchecked boxes on their wishlist.

While the Toronto real estate market has been on an upward trend for many years it can still be difficult to find that perfect lot for your luxury dream custom home. If you don’t want to buy or build a new home, you can always renovate.

If you’re willing to dream with us for a moment, check out five amazing features your luxury home shouldn’t be without.

1. An Entertainment Room

Modern luxurious houses are never complete without an elegantly and functionally designed entertainment room. Usually located in the basement of the home, this room serves as an amazing place to entertain guests, hang out with the family, or take a little time for yourself. 

A high-functioning entertainment room can have everything from a showstopping fireplace to theatre seating and cutting edge TV. However, you have the freedom to shape yours around what activities appeal to you. You could have lighting control with integrated sound system, a fully functioning bar, exquiste wine room with tasting area, pool table, freestanding arcade games, and more.

2. A Luxury Kitchen

There is nothing quite so appealing to a home as a high-end, fully functional and luxurious kitchen. It’s the most popular room of the house, often referred to as the heart of a home, where families gather daily to enjoy meals and conversations together.

Modern luxurious houses have kitchens to match, with high-quality countertops of marble, quartz, or granite, as well as top-of-the-line appliances. However, it must all be pulled together with clean and open interior design. The consideration of location within the home, the natural light available within the space etc should all be factors in making the right decision.

3. A Spa Bathroom

What’s more luxurious than going to a spa? How about going to the spa in your own home for the ultimate stress relief?

Think about how amazing a giant glass walk-in shower fully-equipped with rain showerhead (or multiple) and body massaging wall jets would be. However, don’t forget to include heated floors, towel warmers and a massive soaking tub to get the full effect.

4. A Luxurious Outdoor Living Space

One of the best things about owning a home is being able to enjoy the great outdoors in your own back yard. Modern luxurious houses can take this feeling a step further. 

First thing to consider for your space in Toronto is a covered area commonly reffered to as a loggia. A covered loggia will extend the season in your backyard, provide a space to entertain or BBQ covered from the elements. Expanding the outdoor living space with the installation of an inground pool to create a great excuse to invite guests over. Add an elegant firepit or custom wood-burning pizza oven! With plenty of seating you’ve got the makings of a fantastic hang-out spot. Finally, you can put the cherry on top with a fully functional outdoor kitchen or bar.

5. A Massive Walk-In Closet

Lastly, one of the most highly demanding features of modern luxurious houses on the market is adequate storage space. While this can certainly pertain to everything from garage space to kitchen storage, it also includes closet space. 

As the owner of luxurious home, you probably have an equally impressive wardrobe. Adding a massive walk-in closet connected to the master bedroom is a wise and necessary investment. You can make it even more appealing by designating  “his and hers” sides.
