For a commoner, living a luxurious lifestyle even just for a day is a big dream. But what do we mean by living a luxurious lifestyle? When do we say, an item is considered a luxury? There are common qualities that define a luxurious lifestyle, whether you are a young professional who wants to land a good position for higher salary to buy the best things in life or a real estate investor buying and renting out high-end apartments. Surprisingly, today’s luxurious living is not dictated by location anymore, it is more of living conveniently, with social conscience, quality living, good experiences and a positive state of mind.
Display of wealth and power is no longer obvious, so when it comes to real estate, young professionals prefer to live in discreet and very private emerging luxury real estate markets. The wealthiest people in the world know very well that not all that glitters are gold because many people nowadays live in great pretention and everything they have is superficial. In the past, luxurious living means having a very big house with exquisite landscape gardens and all sorts of helpers around, different models of cars, and very expensive furniture, but all of these toned down came the modern age. Luxurious living is equated to living in convenience, so a luxurious single family dwelling or luxurious apartment always take the highest bidder if it is located centrally. Living in today’s world is really a challenge and living in comfort and convenience mean luxurious living, not having to deal with pollution, heavy traffic, long distance travel, freezing temperatures and blistering heat. Since only a few people can spend on smart homes or environmentally-friendly homes such as having solar power installed and heat and cooling alternatives, all of these also equate to luxurious living. Investing in a smart home or eco-friendly home needs expensive and rare materials as well as the expertise of professional engineers and architects, so these are all the elements of luxurious living, sustaining the kind of lifestyle you have beyond using LED lights and recycling.
If you interview the richest people in the world, they are actually living simple and really just mind the basic things in life because they don’t want to be enslaved sustaining a hobby, a vice or an addiction because they know the value of having good quality than more quantity. It is best to gain more experience in life than actually gaining wealth, and staying healthy than being wealthy. Finally, it all boils down to your state of mind because luxurious living can be experienced by anyone, being contented and comfortable with what you have and working harder for the things you want to achieve.
