How to Boost the Value of Your Luxury Home

There are features that make your home more comfortable and features that are luxurious enough to make your home sell over asking. What are these, you might ask? They range from heated floors to high-end steam showers. Here are some of our favourites.

Steam Showers
Absolute heaven after an intense gym workout or a long day out in the cold, it’s no wonder a steam shower is one luxury feature that can push your home’s sale price over the edge. Opt for marble finishing and a spacious bench seat to really up your shower game.

Home Theatre
If you think people love a spacious sectional and flat screen TV for Netflix marathons or film screenings, why not take it to the next level? A dedicated theatre room with high-end audio, a projector screen and some plush reclining chairs is the perfect touch to set your luxury home apart. Plus, no lineups for popcorn!

Heated Floors
Nothing beats coming in from a Canadian winter or stepping out of a shower onto heated flooring. If you’re already renovating a bathroom or basement, consider adding this upscale touch and watch the offers roll in.

Wine Fridge
Whether full-sized or tucked away underneath an island counter, a wine fridge is a small luxury that packs a big punch. Some of the more high-tech versions have temperature-controlled zones, so you can store both red and white wines at optimal temperatures.

Outdoor Fireplace
Canadians might excel at enjoying summer to its fullest, but it can seem like a pretty short season! An outdoor fireplace is a luxurious touch that makes your guests more comfortable and increases the amount of time that you can entertain outdoors. Some hand-laid brick, a crackling fire and a bottle of wine, and you’ve got the makings of an unforgettable party!

Carriage House or Guest Cottage
Some backyard storage is one thing, but a dwelling that can double as living space, a home office or an artist’s studio is a great way to boost your home’s value while adding extra functionality.
