You can get so caught up in all the added amenities in a luxury home that it is easy to fall in love with the idea of having a certain feature and jump on a certain property. Even though there are many luxury extras that serve the home-dwellers well, there are others that can be questionable. In all truth, luxury amenities can be incredibly valuable or not really worth the added investment in the overall price of the home. It is up to you to decide which amenities would be a worthy investment for you and your family. Here are a few things to consider to help you decide.
Large Indoor Pool Area
Finding a home with an indoor pool is always impressive, and anyone who likes to swim even just occasionally can appreciate such a feature. You may envision lazy days spent by the pool, birthday pool parties for the kids, and other ideas. However, an indoor pool is not for every homebuyer. If you rarely ever swim already, don't really enjoy spending time in the water, or prefer to swim at the beach, your indoor pool may rarely get any use. Therefore, it would be better to allocate that part of the money you would spend on an indoor pool toward some other amenity.
Luxury Walk-In Closets
Walk-in closets are rather typical even in ordinary houses. But the walk-in closets in a luxury home are a room all of their own. These closets can house drawers for storage, rows of hanging racks and shoe shelves, a dressing area, and even a center island. It's easy to be enamored by such closet space, but not every person needs all this space for clothing and shoes. If you have a rather conservative wardrobe size, the closet is more likely to become a catch-all for other stuff. In that case, the space used for such a closet is better designated as something else.
Massive Pro-Level Kitchen
The kitchens in luxury homes can be incredible. Yet, some architects take things a step further and implement a pro-level kitchen that is so massive and so impressive that it can even be outfitted with commercial-grade appliances. While it is easy to convince yourself that if you had a kitchen like that you would cook every day, that probably won't be the case if you don't already love to cook as it is. These kitchens can truly be valuable to some, but it is something to consider.
