Three luxury renovation inclusions to consider in your next project

Luxury renovation inclusions are a fantastic way to spice up your home and also add value. When starting a new renovation, you might be looking at adding some ideas to create a luxury feel in your own home. If you’re looking at renovating and need some ideas here are our top three inclusions to complete any luxury modern home.

Butler’s pantry

This has got to be one of the most common additions to a modern home renovation. It’s favoured across many renovation shows such as The Block, and is always a crowd pleaser. But what is a butler’s pantry?

Well, it’s a kitchen INSIDE a kitchen. Sounds extensive, I know. But it can actually be a lifesaver for a larger family or somebody who loves to entertain. Butler’s pantries allow you to meal prep in large quantities. This can be for you and your family, or a large number of guests. You can also host a party with catering and have them access the butler’s pantry. This allows them to prepare the food without being in the main living space and kitchen.

Another benefit of a butler’s pantry is storage for day-to-day life. It allows you to essentially have 2 x the kitchen storage, and therefore counter space. This can be great for keeping your appliances tucked away and reducing clutter in your main kitchen. Now while not every house has the room or budget for this kind of addition, it can come in many different shapes and sizes. While some renovations or builds opt for an entire second kitchen, some butler’s pantries can simply be a large walk-in with additional bench space and an extra sink.

Home cinema

One of the best ways to upgrade your homes entertainment value is by adding a home cinema. This can be added into any spare room, but a couple of adjustments need to be made to make it the right fit. The first is lighting. Usually, we are all trying to find ways to add more natural light to a room. For a home cinema, there needs to be none. This is particularly important if you are opting for a projector over a larger TV, as any natural light will interfere with the viewing quality. Another aspect to consider is room size. While the theatre doesn’t need to be massive, it does need to be large enough that you can view the screen from a comfortable distance. Nobody wants to watch a movie while 1m away from a screen. Some form of soundproofing can also be a great idea when building a home cinema. This will allow for a more immersive experience, without being interrupted by other household sounds.

One other benefit of adding a home cinema into your build or renovation is resale value. Homes that feature additional recreational aspects such as home cinemas tend to draw attention and set you aside from the crowd. While this can be an expensive addition once you add up the cost of furniture, the screen, and ambient sound and lighting, it can often be found in return when selling in the future.

Home gym

Similar to the home theatre, this is a great addition to your home when it comes to resale value. With the pandemic still in full swing, many people are spending more and more time at home. Including a home gym in your build or renovation can be a fantastic idea to keep your family fit and active without needing to leave home.

Home gyms can come in all shapes and sizes. Some are built outside of the home in a shed or granny flat, and some are built into existing carports or garages. No matter where you decide to add the gym, there are a few important features to consider. Perhaps the most important is the flooring. Gyms generally mean lots of weights being used and stored. This also means potential to drop them or damage flooring. Including traditional gym flooring will create a safe space, free from damage.

How immersive of an experience you create is also up to you. A home gym can consist of a couple of pieces of equipment, or a large array complete with mirrors and surround sound. This will all depend on your households needs, and budget. Any kind of addition of gym to your household will help create a luxury feel, and also be a great help during this pandemic!

The most important aspect of a new build or renovation is making sure the additions fit you and your households needs. These three luxury modern renovation ideas may suit, or they may not. Either way, do your research and try to think outside the box. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your next project, contact AMS property renovations today.
