Attracting High-End Buyers: Top Luxury Home Additions

Our news

When it comes to buying and selling high-end homes, there is big money to be made. But what luxury home additions are people really looking for in 2024? At Balgores, we are highly experienced in selling luxury properties, giving us expert knowledge of the features and amenities that attract the attention of discerning buyers and potentially increase sale prices. Read on to find out what’s hot on the luxury housing market now and how these exquisite additions can maximise your property’s appeal and value.


Luxury internal property additions

Modern properties are often very high-spec and feature state-of-the-art technologies, magnificent amenities, and meticulously designed interiors. Even the simple luxury of extra space and storage options can appeal to buyers who want a home that not only looks great but is practical and accommodates their lifestyle needs.

Utility room and pantry areas

Utility space is now essential in most modern homes. A dedicated area for bulky laundry machines, washer-driers, and other household essentials is usually highly desired by buyers. A sleek design and high-end materials create a sophisticated atmosphere whilst maximizing functionality.

A pantry can be a practical place to store dried goods, baking supplies, and other non-perishable items, offering the convenience of easy access to ingredients whilst helping to maintain a tidy kitchen. With many people taking to Pinterest to plan their dream pantry, the trend for beautifully organised and aesthetically pleasing pantries has surged. Rows of carefully labelled glass jars filled with tasty produce will look wonderful on display. 

Spa-like bathrooms and ensuites

Luxury bathrooms with features such as walk-in showers, heated floors, and high-quality fixtures create a lavish retreat within the home, bringing a wow factor that is sure to impress potential buyers. Wet rooms with sophisticated tiling, rainfall showers, and double sinks will offer an opulent look and feel. 

Walk-in wardrobes

From Carrie Bradshaw to The Beckhams, everyone wants a walk-in wardrobe in which to organise and display their clothing, shoes, and accessories. This luxurious facility not only offers extra storage but also a space to showcase your most loved items with ease. Buyers are increasingly drawn to properties that feature walk-in wardrobes, especially those who have a penchant for fashion or desire for an elegant, organised living space.

High-end kitchen upgrades

Don’t scrimp on quality when it comes to your kitchen. This room is often the heart of the home and by adding key features such as skylights, concertina doors, and modern cabinets, you can create an attractive and functional space that emits a real sense of luxury living.

Luxury external property additions

Don’t forget about your home’s exterior when getting it ready for sale. Discerning buyers are increasingly focussing their attention on outdoor spaces, seeking luxurious additions that extend the living experience outside.

Landscaped gardens

Expertly landscaped gardens with lush lawns, colourful blooms, and well-maintained greenery can transform your outdoor space into an attractive and peaceful retreat that’s guaranteed to attract buyers. Buyers are increasingly drawn to properties with landscaped gardens that can be enjoyed all year round.

Swimming pools and hot tubs

Custom-designed pools or spas with modern designs and sophisticated features can a hefty dose of luxury to your property. However, keep in mind that you’ll need plenty of space and thoughtful planning to accommodate these amenities. Additionally, the right buyer will need a have the budget for regular upkeep and maintenance to ensure they remain in optimal condition.

Outdoor kitchens

Premium outdoor cooking spaces are ideal for dining alfresco with the family or entertaining guests. Quality outdoor kitchens or BBQ setups are weather-resistant and can be used throughout the seasons, making them a truly luxurious addition to any home. Outdoor kitchens provide an extension of living space, offering a versatile area for cooking and socialising outdoors.
