7 Design Features Loved By The Rich And Famous

When it comes to listing the luxury design features found in the homes of the rich and famous, it’s all about lifestyle. Sure, individuals have their own set of priorities and each property is different, but there are some common items being asked for. If you were to draw up a list of must-haves in 2018 for the world’s have-all’s, this would be it.

Shut the Front Gate

When you’re in the public eye, being able to retreat from prying eyes (and paparazzi cameras) is crucial. Substantial perimeter fencing, a code-locked front gate and perhaps a location in a gated community with private security are all luxury design features that make the list.

Well-heeled Wellness

While we’re now all familiar with luxury design features such as spa-like bathrooms, the wealthiest are taking this design concept a step further. Having a private wellness spa — complete with treatment rooms and the latest spa technologies (think sub-zero cryo-therapy) — is what’s drawing the billionaires. These serene spaces aren’t for making your homemade avocado face masks, but rather receiving the therapeutic benefits of custom-designed water features and Zen teachings.

Room with a View

Having a home with million-dollar view — be it waterfront or Cityscape — is paramount to the one-per-cent. They will build a house around it, change the design concept to enhance it, and buy up surrounding properties to protect it. Not only is it about enjoying the vistas from the comfort of your own home, but there’s also an element of showmanship.

Wine O’Clock

Having a wine fridge or built-in rack isn’t going to cut it for the cognoscenti of this world — they want a full-blown cellar. A subterranean tasting room is a popular luxury design feature to store those priceless Bordeaux vintages and Porto ports. This won’t be a musty basement with a few bottles, but a high-tech, temperature-controlled homage to the art of wine-making… and collecting.

Scaling Up

Not surprisingly, in a world where bigger is better, most moneyed individuals are sure to ask for one thing — mega square footage. With a minimum of 20,000 sq. ft., luxury home buyers want rooms for guests, rooms for staff and rooms for 1,500 Christian Louboutin shoes. Expansive kitchens, a mammoth master suite and a home theater – all that space is used to create a contained, bespoke world.

Manic Panic

Jodie Foster gave an incredible acting performance in Panic Room, but the fear is real for some of the world’s wealthiest families. A panic room is a must-have for many A-listers, but these may not be your run-of-the-mill metal boxes. Kitted out with Kevlar lining, air-filtration systems, entertainment centers and bathroom facilities, panic rooms have become a luxury design feature in their own rite.

Chef’s Kitchen

Blame it on Instagram’s #instafood photo-posting trend, but the demand for high-end kitchens among the highest earners is hashtag high. Commercial-grade appliances are among the most sought-out luxury design features, even when the owners are not professional (celebrity) chefs themselves. It’s all about maximizing the potential of cooking prowess in the kitchen — or maybe it’s at the request of a personal chef
