Top 5 Health and Wellness Trends in Luxury Real Estate

Most luxury homes will offer hotel-caliber amenities –and that means showcasing more than just ultra-chic designs and décor, but also pampering elements that provide that extravagant path towards a happier and healthier lifestyle. Here are wellness features that are trending in today’s luxury real estate properties.

Green Living

Optimizing green spaces at home not only reduces one’s carbon footprint, but a sustainable lifestyle also plays a significant part in personal wellbeing. Innovative designs coupled with energy-saving technologies and practices in the form of solar panels, LED lighting, vegetable gardens, and orchards, as well as green roofs and balconies that provide natural cooling and beautiful landscapes, turn homes into eco-friendly, yet still stunning architectural marvels.

Enlightened Spaces

Zen-like spaces can promote relaxation and a more positive mood. An open flow design, lots of natural daylight, calm color palettes and subtle textures that flow throughout the rooms, along with fresh flowers, potted plants, and soft furnishings –all contribute to a stress-busting sanctuary.

Clean Living

Luxury homes redefine cleanliness with amenities and technologies that make living spaces more health-centric. Advanced air purification systems are installed to enhance indoor air quality by eliminating toxins, allergens, pollen, pathogens and other air pollutants. In addition, aside from best-in-class water filtration system, a new trend includes having Vitamin C-infused showers to help promote healthier hair and skin.

Health-Inspired Kitchens

Thoughtfully-designed kitchens can encourage healthy eating, keep in mind this includes outdoor kitchens as well! Sleek Sub-Zero and Wolf refrigerators will keep fruits and vegetables fresh, while steam ovens allow the retention of food’s vitamins and minerals with less use of fats and oils. Le Creuset cast iron pans, as well as top-of-the-line juicers and premium blenders, will also help homeowners eat and drink their way to wellness. Fire up a state of the line grill to cook fresh veggies and protein, or alternatively, luxury wellness living can also accommodate hiring a personal chef to utilize the kitchen and whip up healthy meals.

State-of-the-art Fitness Room

Fitness fanatics will gladly lose their gym memberships when their residence boasts wellness amenities that could rival those offered in upscale hotels and resorts.

Lavish fitness rooms can have a yoga studio, state-of-the-art cardio, strength and other gym equipment (which can be curated by a trainer), treatment rooms, steam rooms for post-workout relaxation, spa-like saunas, whirlpool spa, heated pool, landscaped gardens and spacious courtyards for outdoor workouts. Some homes boast sports simulator for golf, tennis courts and in some cases, floor-to-ceiling glass windows that reveal beautiful views of gardens, mountains, city skylines or the ocean.
