4 Elements You Can Replicate From A Grand Penthouse To Your Humble Abode

Interior Design & Decor


 "No Matter Where It May Be;

 A Home Is Where The Heart Is"

RenoTalk Editor

Penthouses sit proudly at the top of buildings. The view from the top captivates any pair of eyes. Offering stunning panoramic view and breathtaking scenes, these penthouses are typically furnished with luxurious creme de la crème finishing.

Penthouses exude luxury and exclusivity and are synonymous with opulence and extravagance. They are regarded as the best in the avenues of real estate and are found at prestigious addresses in any area or country.

With boastful space and loftier ceilings, penthouses prices are meant for the well-heeled haut monde. Such, it is not puzzling that, as expensive as these penthouses may be, they appeal to the rich and wealthy.  


The Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous


If you can afford a penthouse and you have the means to own one, then you are probably a person that like a place that expresses your unique, driven personality and one that reflects your achievements – someone like Dan Lok.

He is a Chinese-Canadian business magnate who is widely seen as one of the top business leaders by millions around the world. He has taught many to develop high-income skills, unlock true financial confidence and master their economic destinies.

An international best-selling author of over a dozen books, he is also the host of The Dan Lok Show – a series featuring billionaire tycoons and millionaire entrepreneurs.  


What maketh a Penthouse?


Penthouses can be found all over the world – in Singapore, Canada, and other cities. No matter where it might be, these penthouses are usually fitted with top-of-the-line appliances, a larger floor plan, Brobdingnagian windows, fancier finishes, and a view to die for.

Let this video surprise you by what a penthouse is; in contemporary terms. Take a look here.


 


Majestic isn’t it? Let’s begin to dissect the penthouse from the ground up, and maybe you can get some renovation inspiration from it. Shall we?  


Flooring

The penthouse in the video opens to a hallway that has a ‘wooden’ looking material as its flooring. Wood flooring adds an elegant and vintage look to your home interiors. Not only does wood look classy; they also mature as they age, producing that sought after patina appearance.

Creating an inviting environment in your home is straightforward when you choose wood flooring. High-quality wood floors add a vibrant appeal to any room, and the choices are plentiful.

With a variety of construction options, you will be able to find a suitable flooring regardless of the style of your home.  


Office


The next scene in the video brings us to an office – a penthouse office or more fittingly a home office. For independent professionals, the home office has become a vital place in their working ecosystem.

A home office has many conveniences, such as no travel time and the ability to work flexible hours. Furthermore, a home office is a commodious place even if it is only meant for occasional projects.

More importantly, the home office acts as a base for work where you can customize almost everything according to your client interactions.

Yes, it is true that most of us operate in a different cyclic rhythm. Others might get off to a slow start only to hit their stride later in the day while some of us get our best work done in the morning.

A home office can compensate for this differential in efficiency. By replicating the flexibility and freedom of working in a ‘home,’ workers might demonstrate a higher degree of productivity.  


The Balcony


The next area in the video lures us to a vast aerial view of the outdoor and immediately revealed the benefits of a balcony.

Balconies can be described as the protrusions that appear on the sideways of any building, apartment or house. It is a beautiful place to spend time in peace and reflection.

The addition of a balcony in the house adds versatility to the house environment. It is a place to adore the free nature and a place to admire the mysterious beauty of the night.

Although the balcony makes for a quiet sanctuary, you can also enjoy the company of friends over a barbeque dinner party at the privacy and security of your house.

One of the ways to achieve the many benefits of a balcony is to beautify the area with potted plants, or hanging climbers. And watch them grow in unison as the pure elegance of your balcony slowly takes its shape.

Kitchen


The video culminates with the brief introduction of an excellent kitchen that was designed by a Ferrari designer. It boasts a hefty price of $400,000 and with a priceless view to match it up.

For some of us, designing a kitchen is about storage, cooking, and ergonomics, but as you can observe, kitchen design involves passion – your passion.

For example, a kitchen with an open layout allows your guests to flow naturally from the kitchen to other areas of the house. Thus, built-in appliances might replace extra work or food storage area.

For those who consider themselves as a serious cook, an appropriate kitchen design might be a gourmet kitchen with functional work surfaces of marble or quartz.

While for those who are busy with children, a kitchen might mean more than a place to prepare meals. It doubles up as a place to do your kids homework and a gathering spot to share the daily meal.

In gist, an inspiring kitchen design is a soul-satisfying reflection of the things you love to do and the way you want to live.  


Conclusion


These are some of the elements that you can replicate in your humble abode at the comfort of your budget. You might not be able to stay in a penthouse, but some features exist in all human dwellings. Ultimately, home is where the heart is.

Still, for those who want to know if penthouses are worth it, check out this video.
