Embracing Modern Luxury: Top Trends In Luxury Real Estate

Share This Post:

As a realtor, I have seen firsthand how the definition of luxury has evolved over the years. In the past, luxury homes were characterized by their size and opulence. However, today’s luxury buyers have different priorities and the definition of luxury has shifted to include features that cater to a more modern lifestyle. This blog post is all about the top trends in luxury homes.

Smart Homes

Smart home technology has become a must-have feature for luxury homes. From controlling the temperature to security cameras, everything is now automated, and luxury buyers want a home that can be controlled from their smartphones. Home automation systems have become more advanced and easier to use, which is why luxury homes are integrating these systems into their design.


Sustainability has become a crucial consideration for luxury buyers. They want homes that are environmentally friendly and energy-efficient. Energy-efficient appliances, solar panels and plugs for electric vehicles are some of the features that luxury buyers look for in a home. Luxury homes are also starting to integrate water-saving systems and sustainable materials into their design.

Private Spaces

With the rise of remote work and virtual schooling, luxury buyers are prioritizing private spaces within their homes. Home offices, home theaters, and private gyms have become must-have features for luxury homes.

Staycation Backyards

Homes with a vacation feel in the backyard are a must in luxury homes. Multiple outdoor living spaces such as pool houses with bathrooms and change rooms, heated walkways and even separate workspaces are also in high demand.

Open Floor Plans

Open floor plans have been popular for years, but they have become even more desirable in luxury homes. Luxury buyers want homes that flow seamlessly from one room to the next, creating a sense of openness and spaciousness. The trend towards open floor plans also reflects a desire for a more relaxed, informal lifestyle.

Spa-Like Bathrooms

Luxury buyers are investing in bathrooms that rival a five-star spa. Large, luxurious bathtubs, high-end fixtures, and steam showers are some of the features that luxury buyers look for in a bathroom. The trend towards spa-like bathrooms reflects a desire for relaxation and wellness.

The luxury real estate market is constantly evolving, and luxury buyers are looking for homes that meet their changing needs and priorities. Smart homes, sustainability, private spaces, open floor plans, and spa-like bathrooms are just some of the trends that are shaping the luxury real estate market. As a luxury market realtor, it is important to keep up with these trends to better serve my clients and provide them with the homes of their dreams.
