If you’re thinking about selling or you’ve just bought a great Oakville home, it’s time to start thinking about adding luxury to your house. Many Oakville homes for sale have a few key features that make them luxurious… but what are they? You don’t need a rolling estate to enjoy your home, but you do need to be able to use your space wisely. Here we’re going to go over how you can create dedicated spaces, break the barriers between the indoors and outdoors and more to have the luxury Oakville home you’ve always wanted. Let’s get started!

Break the Barrier Between Indoors and Outdoors

This doesn’t mean you want your bedroom to be on the front lawn, but it does mean you’re going to want to enjoy more of your home.

Outdoor Kitchens and Dining Areas are a great way to make your real estate pop. While fall is almost here, you’ll still get at least 6 months of use out of an outdoor kitchen! Breaking down the barriers between inside space and outside space is a great way to make your home more luxurious, but it doesn’t have to stop there! A backyard shouldn’t just be there to mow; think about a fire pit, wood burning stoves and more to create a place to recreate.

Dedicated Space Means Luxury

We’ve all heard of those old mansions with different “wings” of the house appropriated to art, collections; but if you divide up your own home in this way with dedicated spaces you’ll be able to hacve the luxury real estate you’ve always dreamed of. If you love books, why have bookcases all over the house when you can have a dedicated library and reading room in a spare bedroom? If you work from home, a dedicated office room is a great way to go. Creating spaces puts you in the mindset to enjoy, work, play. When it comes to luxury homes for sale in Oakville people are going to want to see these dedicated spaces. They may not even use the space the same way, but they’ll find a sense of order and beauty that many other homes simply won’t have.

Upgrade Your Fixtures

If you’ve just moved into a home or you’re thinking about selling, take a look at your fixtures. Look at the ones in the ceiling, the hardware on your doors, cabinets and drawers. Most stock fixtures aren’t all that great and can detract from the luxury of your Oakville real estate. A few hundred dollars can go a long way towards changing the look of your home, and if you want to be able to get a luxury Oakville home it won’t take long! Consider installing chair railing in office and dining areas, adding that designer touch to make your home special.

Real estate is all about presentation. Enjoy your space, project a great image and you’ll have everything you need to enjoy your luxury Oakville home.
