Having the opportunity to live on the water is amazing, and when you have the ability to customize your home to spotlight the gorgeous scenery, you’d be foolish not to take it! Here are some of our best tips to transform your current house or empty plot of land into a luxurious waterfront property.
Choose Windows to Highlight the Water
If you are building your luxurious waterfront property from scratch, you should take care to orient the windows so that they show as much water as possible. By installing windows that take up as much of the wall as possible, you can truly enjoy the scenery. One way to integrate more window-like space is by using bi-fold doors. These give you the versatility of having a door with the beauty of traditional windows.
Use an Open Floor Plan
Try an open floor plan to make your luxurious waterfront property feel even more luxe. Open floor plans eliminate some of the visual obstructions that might distract from the gorgeous outdoor scenery. Existing waterfront properties can be renovated into open floor plans if you are not designing a custom home from scratch.
Don’t Forget Outdoor Space
The inside might seem like the most essential part of your luxurious waterfront property, but you shouldn’t neglect the outdoors! Balcony decks, patios, and docks can all encourage you and your visitors to spend more time outside enjoying the water and the fresh air. Depending on your budget, you can add features to make things feel even more luxurious, like an outdoor kitchen, pool, hot tub, or outdoor recreation areas.
Think About Your Lifestyle
Finally, when designing any type of home, you should consider your personal lifestyle and hobbies. Make sure you design your home to have comfortable furniture where you spend the most time. Additionally, as you customize your luxurious waterfront property, you should plan on maximizing your waterfront views in the parts of the house where you spend most of your day.
