Historically, what has differentiated a Villa from any other type of house, has been the constant emphasis on luxury and the finer things in life. Villas are larger homes with their own gardens, vineyards or courtyards, hotel-like services and water fixtures like pools and fountains. However when it comes down to improving the look of your villa, here are a couple of things you can do to improve the overall look and feel of your luxury home.
Flooring: In trying to maintain a look of luxury one important detail that is often overlooked is the flooring of your Villa. Flooring can be a very important part of a house, giving it a particular look and feel. Floors also come with a wide variety of materials, from Hardwood to tile or even stone to glass, it can complement your Villa’s aesthetic in a very particular way. In addition, some rooms can even have heated floors. While this won’t be obvious to anyone but you, it will certainly be appreciated on a chilly day. Choosing the design of the flooring will enhance the overall sense of luxury your home provides.
Stunning Views: One of the biggest draws to owning a luxury villa is the option to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy some beautiful scenery. It is not surprising then that most luxury villas have stunning views. If you’re looking to improve the look of your luxury villa, make sure the view you want is clearly visible while maintaining beautiful landscapes all around the villa.
Beautiful Grounds: A Villa will always have the feature of a beautiful garden which can range from a courtyard, a vineyard, terrace or garden itself. If you have a small garden, take advantage of your terrace area and populate it with greenery to add character to your luxurious villa. A little manicuring of the lawns, nicely trimmed hedges and floral colours, would add a tranquillity that is often a signature of any luxury villa.
Water as a feature: Adding or updating water features can also improve the look of your luxury villa. There are two main types of water features although, the two can be combined to create a one of a kind pool. One of these is functional, like a pool or a Jacuzzi. The other type of water feature is purely decorative and includes fountains, ponds and cascades. The functional water features include indoor and outdoor pools which provide a place to swim in the privacy of your own villa. Purely decorative water features can add just the right amount of elegant luxury to your villa and also add a calming touch to the atmosphere of your home. With fountains, waterfalls and ponds stocked with fish, these pieces can add just the right touch.
Landscaping: Taker a holistic look at the natural features of your villa, there’s never a good reason not to give your garden space a makeover. The effect that a Villa’s grounds can have over its overall feel is often underestimated. Tear up that patchy lawn and build something meaningful that screams originality to make your luxury villa stand out from among the rest. Be it a multi-layered stone garden or the simple inclusion of a gazebo, landscaping with the correct designer can do wonders.
