Over the past few years, the real estate boom in the country has made it irresistible for those who have the resources to invest in apartment units whether for personal use or for profit. What’s more, apartment living provides various modern conveniences that are just plainly impossible to attain otherwise. Because of this, millionaires, and even billionaires, have tried to get in on the movement. You might be wondering how a person with such means can possibly live in a flat in this country. Despite the initial challenge of space, living like a billionaire is possible. Regardless of what theme you’re going for, you just have to make sure you have the following elements in your home:

1

Bespoke furniture

One of the advantages afforded by luxury is personalisation, and this is especially useful when it comes to furniture. Custom-made pieces are great because the artisan can tailor his work to your specific taste and requirements. You also stand to own something that’s truly one of a kind.

2

Curated furnishings

Your home should be a reflection of your personality and experiences, and the best way to get this across is by choosing the right décor. For example, a seasoned traveller will have mementos from his trips, while a film buff would have signed posters hanging on the walls.

Prized art

Art breathes life into any space, and for a bare-bones penthouse apartment in particular, a good selection of artworks can make the place come alive with character. Do buy from trusted sources, and get your pieces insured while you’re at it.

Open spaces

Living in a flat is not a hindrance to having the luxury of space. Whether it’s organising things in a smarter manner or throwing away old or defective knick-knacks, you just have to make sure there’s room for you, your fellow residents, and your guests to move about.

5

Private pool

Another important aspect of luxury is exclusivity. While most properties already offer top-notch amenities that rival those of luxe boutique hotels, there are some things that are best enjoyed exclusively. Having a private pool and lounging area, for instance, takes apartment living to the next level— a lifestyle that a billionaire will truly enjoy.
