View - A view is often what makes something a luxury property. If you’re going for a home with a view in London, it’s generally going to be an urban view, not a view of the rolling countryside. However, if you buy something on the outskirts of London, you might be able to find a place with rolling hills and a brook nearby. So think about what kind of view you’re looking for before you buy.

Swimming Pool – It is possible to have a swimming pool even if you’re in the middle of an urban area. There are luxury buildings which have pools for the use of their residents. So if you’re really into swimming, you might want to let your agent know that this is one of your requirements.

Sauna or hot tub – Generally, you can’t have a hot tub in an apartment because it won’t be big enough. So this is something that would have to be installed in a house. Sometimes, however, you can get smaller models which can fit in an apartment as well. A sauna can also be set up in any bathroom, even a tiny one. Let your agent know that this is something you’d like to have or eventually install in your home.

Garden – If you’re really fond of gardening, you should really have some space to potter around in. If you’re getting an apartment, it helps to get one with a terrace so that your plants can get some light. If you’re getting a house, make sure it has a sizable front and back yard for you to plant whatever you like. A garden interspersed with a pool in a natural shape and a koi pond can make for a pleasant, meditative place for you to hang out, either by yourself or with your significant other.

Gym – If you like working out, you might want to get a home with a gym. If you’re getting an apartment, look for one in a building which has a gym for its residents. If you’re getting a house, you can always set up your own personal gym with a treadmill and some weight machines. Just make sure that your home has enough space for everything you might require.

These are just a few of the various luxury elements that can be a part of your London home. Contact us for more information or call +44(0)20 7235 8345.

The Ultimate Luxury Is The Intangible

Any property’s finest features is its layout. Above all else, a home must flow very naturally, with no dead space. As opposed to prioritising tangible pieces and specific furniture, Landmass believes it is the intangible should be top of the list when it comes to interior designing homes.

Managing Director describes luxury very differently to most developers and designers. He says. ‘They talk about luxury specifications, iPads in walls and built-in speakers, that sort of thing. But the ultimate luxury is intangible – it’s how you create the wow factor from a space. You might not be able to put your finger on how it’s done, but you know it’s there. its Apple school of thought of creating wow through simple design.’

In this Belgravia basement, you can see the sky from the basement. Glass flooring on the ground level allows light to flow from a retractable roof down to the basement. Alan even says ‘when you turn the lights off, its still a very pleasant space to spend time in.’

Reflecting on the sales of another record priced London property selling, Alan suggested ‘ this is no coincidence. ‘ At Landmass, we spend hours and hours on space planning, it’s a process. We go through lots of different exercises, one of which is to do a walk-through with my Architect, Luxury Interior Designer, Structural Engineer and Estate Agent.’ The five of them walk through the house, floor by floor, discussing which configuration will work best. ‘Each has a different opinion and each is necessary,’ he says. ‘It’s very much a team game. Ultimately, ‘even if the finish is fantastic, if the layout’s rubbish, the whole thing’s rubbish.’

Space planning is about the configuration of an interior space to provide the most efficient and valuable use of a property’s layout. ‘We believe introducing natural light and capitalising on small spaces is paramount in designing a property. Before considering furnishings, our in-house design team propose internal layout changes to properties making full use of space’ Alan says.

The Importance of Lighting in Interior Design

All rooms need a mixture of lighting, be it ambient or simple background illumination or accent lighting to highlight an exceptional feature. You can always update a room and develop the atmosphere with worthy lighting. Equally, nothing makes a room feel old-fashioned and inhospitable like bad lighting design. Ultimately, you want the lighting to bring a space together. Luxury interior design is all about not detracting from the space you have created. The lighting simply showcases that space in all its glory.

We believe you should think about a scheme before you start to decorate an area. First, where is the furniture going to be position, perhaps around a television or fireplace? Posing questions such as would you use be in that room predominantly in the day or evenings/night is very useful in determining the lighting design. Often, you forget whether the room ever be used for entertainment.

Down lighting can be incredibly helpful and effective interior design but it should only be used in its proper place. Throughout the daytime, rooms with well-sized windows will benefit from a significant amount of natural light. In contrast, down lighters can help to create a soft glow that adds ambience in the evening, especially helpful in a dining area.

Landmass Spotlights

Landmass – Spotlights

Spotlights make a feature out of key features and pure architectural detail. When used in the corners of rooms, where you would not normally have light they can be very effective. A room full of spotlights isn’t overly glamorous; the excessive light they provide can be exhausting. However, a dimmer switch can immediately change the mood from intense to cosy.

Lighting is undoubtedly the fundamental characteristic of a frequently used room. For a dining room, the lighting should be subtle. Importantly, chandeliers should always be fitted with dimmer switches, so you can experiment with brightness levels for different occasions. Too dark and you will not be able to see what you are eating, but too light will make for spoilt atmosphere. Wall lights are often a great option.

A living room is expected to have different seating areas and each chair may require its own lighting. A sofa may require practical lighting for reading, while armchairs can be lit effectively with lamps. The issue with relying predominantly on table and floor lamps is that many require lampshades. Looking like a lampshade shop is never a great look and an array will be for an old fashioned appearance.

The staircase is often a neglected area when it comes to lighting design. They are always built around stubborn angles, so spotlights can create pools of light and shadows. This isn’t very safe and isn’t very attractive. Directional light at floor level avoids this and creates a subtle, evenly distributed design. Stairs are also a great place to showcase pictures, so it is important they are well lit to ensure they can be seen throughout the day.

London’s Basement Revolution

They are the luxurious answer to London’s shortage of space, for those who have the investment and time. Whilst the uproar of living next to or in the vicinity of major construction works will always cause headaches amongst locals, there seems to be no stopping London’s growing population digging down.

Ultimately, if value can be added by excavating a basement, it is no wonder they are so sought after. In 2001, the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea received just 46 basement planning applications. In 2013, the planning department received over 450. By the end of 2014, well in excess of 500 will have been applied for.

Whether you are worried about the hassle and expense of moving, or are simply looking into all the possibilities of an extensive renovation on your property, creating a new basement makes more sense than you might think. Unlike a loft conversion, which offers more space but restricted movement, a basement provides a near whole new floor comparable to the ground level or perhaps even larger.

Given the increasing number of basement works, there is a growing sentiment that restrictions should be applied. In Central London, both the boroughs of Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster have hinted at limiting the extent of works applicable on a project specific basis. Consequently, residents and developers are now squeezing in their applications in the time before the luxury is taken away.

In some instances, the addition of a basement creates homes where there is actually more space below ground level than above ground. An additional floor can add to the feeling of spaciousness. Any further underground space and there is always the risk of having a bunker feeling. Currently under construction, 76 Ladbroke Grove is one example of this 21st century subterranean living. In the heart of Notting Hill, it will benefit from a double basement with 4 bedrooms, gym and media room.

Until any comprehensive new rules come into play, owners’ ambitions for their underground developments know no bounds. There have been cases where owners have applied to turn the basement of his Fulham townhouse into several windowless, air-conditioned rooms to act as one big fridge for food and drink shipped in from overseas. With an industrial power supply, it goes to show that these conversions can be used for absolutely anything you can think of. The possibilities are endless.

Quite simply, there are two types of basement builders. The uber wealthy do what the rich have always done, building basements with James Bond gadgets, which doesn’t necessarily add any value to a sales price. Then there are the spatially challenged who want to create extra rooms and add value to their property for example, additional living space, playrooms for the children, and living quarters for the nanny. If a basement is functional, they will significantly enhance the end price of the property.

“Ensuring any basement is practical is if anything, more important to just having that Wow factor. If the space looks good, but isn’t well arranged, buyers won’t be able to visualise how they use it” says Eleri Lloyd, Senior Interior Designer at Landmass. In a Belgravia mews house, the basement’s sheer volume of of 3.2 metre high ceilings provided the necessary splendour but Landmass ensured that every inch of space within the property is used to its best potential. On completion, Ross Lawson, Head of Projects at Landmass remarked “the house is unique in that if you go in with the lights off, it’s still bright. The fact a buyer paid £6.9m, a record selling price for a London mews is no surprise.”

Mews houses can be dark, so making sure that light came through the property was a priority. Thanks to innovative design and, a glazed roof and glass flooring, light flows from the south-facing roof terrace right down to the basement deep underground.

When it comes to high-end features, another Landmass property development ticks the boxes. In addition to a sunken TV area, bespoke fireplaces, there’s even a 10-and-a-half foot water feature. In this Hyde Park house, there was a huge challenge in that there were no windows at the rear of the property. It had houses all around it so was basically stuck in a box. Managing Director of Landmass then suggesting something truly unique amongst property throughout the world. “We took out a corner and created an atrium from the top floor with a glass retractable roof on it down to the basement with waterfall running all the way down”. That house sold quickly and went on to win Best London Development and Best Interior Design in the United Kingdom.

What is clear is that basements are under more scrutiny than ever. In ten years, it’s possible that permissions for digging basements in some high value areas in London may be stopped completely. So if you are keen to add a pool, gym, or games room to your London property, now might be the time.

Should you be a London Interior Designer?

Have you ever walked into a room and instantly realised that the layout is all wrong, and that all it would take to fix this awkward looking room would be to move a wall, change a few bits of furniture and tweak certain arrangements? If this sounds like you, then perhaps there is a little interior designer in you. It either comes naturally or with the right education and knowledge, you could polish your skills and make a living of advising people on how best to approach a refurbishment project.

One of the most satisfying parts involved in interior design is the pride of taking something ugly or uninhabitable and making it truly beautiful. The transformation process is something you can do so many different ways and with no perfect layout or style, often you have the licence to design something bespoke and tailored specifically for the space in question.

Most of us have just the one home, and a few of us lack the budget the reinvent the interiors over and over again where our home furnishings are concerned. Being a professional designer allows you to express all of the different decorating styles within you and end up furnishing clients houses without spending a penny.

If shopping is a sport to you, where you consider yourself worthy of a gold medal, you may be perfectly suited to an interior designer career. Choosing what looks best where and challenging clients on what is and isn’t timeless, what is stylish or just hideous are just a few qualities you need for this profession.

Have any of your friends and family walked into your home, taken a look around and said “wow this place is amazing, can you come and sort out my place? I need your design influence!” A space does not need to be packed with an expensive furniture, priceless ornaments and famous paintings. More often than not, it is a case of whether the space is seems right or not. Ultimately, the most desirable homes are those in which space and light flow seamlessly throughout.

Do Fireplaces Add Value To Property?

Historically fireplaces are the absolute centre of any home. They provide your home with not only heat and light, but more importantly they provide a focus for the owners and their families. They are typically used as either a place to relax in peace and tranquillity or a perfect area to socialise and play host to friends and extended family. Fireplaces always dominate the room they are in, chairs are organised to face it, making it the focal point of the house.

Regardless of changing fashions, original fireplaces are certain to remain a major asset, on a par with wooden sash windows and period cornices. However, we believe modern fireplaces can add significant and bring a whole room together. Fireplaces can be truly unique and a newly developed Belgravia Mews House we recently designed benefits from a bespoke fireplace. On the ground floor, an internal glass window creates the symmetry behind the circular chrome fireplace. It is this London interior design that played a part in this house being short listed for Best Residential Property 2014.

Belgravia Mews House Fireplace

As of late the fireplace has been pushed aside by state of the art flat screen televisions, thus impeding any chance for socialising and providing noise as opposed to relaxation, but the fire place is making a comeback. Fireplaces and televisions can now both exist together. This can be achieved in various different ways and looks. Because all furniture tends to face either a fireplace or a television then most believe that the best option of including both of these features into your home is to have a fireplace situated underneath the television so as to not have to change the way most furniture is pointed. This will enable you to enjoy both relaxation and television at the same time.

The London basement interior design of another newly developed luxury Knightsbridge house, we designed what is considered to be the ‘largest bespoke copper clad fireplace in Europe.’ With a television recessed inside, it provides both a focal point of the room and the perfect setting for a media corner in an informal reception area.

If you are lucky enough to have a large living room then you can always split the room so you have furniture facing a fireplace on one side and a TV watching area on the other to cater for whatever mood you are in. Sleek, modern fireplaces, with flush facings, oblong shapes, glittering glass and light-show effects, are designed to fit in better with the sharp angles and edges of modern décor—especially those of flat-screen TVs, which are often mounted right above. These new fireplaces can turn a whole wall into a design element that draws the eye to the fireplace first, TV after.

Modern fireplaces are built no more just with stone and brick, now they are being built by marble and even glass. Contemporary fireplaces have not changed very much in terms of their appearance, just the material they are built with. Tell any estate agent that your home has a unique fireplace and their eyes will light up like kindling. Sadly, many fireplaces were ripped out after the Clean Air Act of 1956, which prevented solid fuel from being burnt in the centre of big cities. But they made a comeback in the 1990s as homeowners wanted home comforts. And what could be more cosy than a roaring fire.

Using Marble Flooring and Custom Closets for High End Interior Design London

When it comes to high end interior design London, the options are endless. There are so many things that you can do within your home to make your life easier and more comfortable. Aesthetically as well, there are a number of options to increase the beauty of your home. Whether your priority is comfort or aesthetics, we can help you to build the type of home that you want. Here are a few tips to increase the luxury quotient of your home:

Marble Flooring

Marble usually comes in white with grey streaks running through it but it can also be found in pink. Using marble in your home can give it a classical feel because this is the substance that the Ancient Greeks used for building and sculpting. There’s a solid feel about having marble under your feet. Plus, you can decorate marble flooring with a plethora of rugs which will all stand out against the whiteness of the stone.

Marble can also be used for kitchen counters, decorative columns and side tables. Marble sculptures and furniture will make great conversation starters when people come over. Italian marble is known for its high quality and the rich feel that it will add to your home.

Custom Closets

Whereas marble flooring will make an aesthetic addition to your home, custom closets are very practical. This doesn’t mean that they can’t be easy on the eyes, of course. In fact, most custom closets are aesthetically pleasing because they ensure that all your things are in place and shown off to best advantage.

Sometimes, people make use of extra rooms to create walk-in closets. At other times, they just customize smaller closets by dividing them into various sections that can be used for various things. Walk-in closets are wonderful because they’re like rooms in themselves. You can have a dressing table and chair within your walk-in closet; you can also decorate it with plants and artwork.

Still, the main advantage of a custom closet is that you get to see everything at one go without having to hunt for things in the back. All your clothes and accessories are organized. So you can begin the day by getting dressed leisurely instead of having to hunt down your favourite scarf.
