When you are looking for a luxury property, the functionality must meet aesthetics and as you would expect, there are quite a few layouts and styles to suit every taste. Aside from the four exterior walls, the interior space can be divided into rooms or be more open plan. If you are designing your own luxury home, here are a few of the popular interior layouts in 2022.
The wealthy like to have a country hideaway, deep in the forest and pine is the material you’ll find in this luxury home – that, or oak and ash. Thick carpets and pleated blinds with beige and cream colours blending with neutral browns. Ideal for colder climates, with a built-in fire in every room, of course; some have a real open fire to spread heat around the home. Hardwood flooring is a common feature in the country-style property.
Hollywood Glamorous Style
Born in Hollywood in the seventies, this open plan style is filled with chic Art Deco furniture, with high contrast colours for maximum effect. A central chandelier is a must, which is always the feature of any room, along with rich fabric curtains, deep pile carpets, and imported Italian furniture. If you fancy living in Marbella, you can check out a stunning Sotogrande apartment for sale at a leading real estate agent. This part of Spain is a firm favourite among UK holidaymakers and semi-retired couples, where many have second homes.
The Scandinavian Look
Pine is everywhere, with stone flooring and long white curtains and chic fabric lounge furniture. You would also find lots of baskets and dried grass being added to the decor. Neutral and pastel colours reign and this easy-on-the-eye style is more popular than you might think. The kitchen is, of course, pine with stone flooring, while copper and brass should also be in attendance.
The Coastal Open Plan
Beachfront mansions have sprawling terraces and very high ceilings. The Algarve and Costa Del Sol are places in Europe where you find this open layout, where white, grey and metallic colours are popular. The Costa del Sol new build apartments are a prime example of this. Some luxury beachfront properties also take a lot from Italian designs with imported Italian marble and travertine flooring.
Asian Zen Look
Those who love eastern cultures are drawn to the simplistic and minimalist look of Buddhist Zen. Sleek lines and unusual shapes are the signature of this style and with the right lighting, you have a soothing ambience that promotes relaxation. You’ll find mats and wooden furniture with teak flooring and incense sticks in all rooms. If you love nothing more than being immersed in nature, decorate with bamboo and other timber species.
