5 must-have features of a modern apartment
As all fashion and technology trends change from year to year, the field of architecture and buildings has been affected by offering us new luxury properties, providing us with all the comforts. However, the trends in the field of architecture are gradually changing, at least as far real estate in Limassol, Cyprus (EU) is concerned.
1. Energy Class A+
Energy consumption is one of the most important factors to consider when starting a new building. The energy class of the apartments results from the use of energy, i.e. it has to do with the energy savings that result from some factors such as orientation and lighting of the building, thermal insulation. Category A represents buildings or building units with the highest energy efficiency and low operating costs. Renewable energy sources generate 25 % of the energy required for energy class A, so the use of photovoltaics helps save energy.
2. Open plan kitchen with Dining and Living Area
Now, most modern, and contemporary apartments are designed in such a way to provide wide-open spaces, giving the feeling of a larger and more convenient space since there are no partition walls. An open kitchen and dining area offer excellent flexibility and convenience in the way we live. Also, an open kitchen with shelves and many cupboards helps us to have our things in order, finding them makes space look bigger and more spacious.
3. Smart Home Automation
The technology hides behind the beautiful interiors of the apartments. One of the features of modern flats that everyone loves is details. There are innovation and evolution in the field of technology. Not only in our phones and computers but also in our apartments. Through wireless and remote controls, we can control the electronic systems, the heating and air conditioning system, the lighting, the security and much more. Technology has paid off much of our lives that can be considered a luxury.
4. Swimming pool and Fitness Center
Most of us like to have access to a swimming pool. Although it varies from installation in both hotels and homes, many luxury modern apartments have a swimming pool for its residents, offering them moments of relaxation. Many of them have their private pool in addition to the common one. Many apartments also have a gym. We may pay more to live in such a luxury apartment, but we reduce and avoid other expenses such as an expensive monthly subscription to the gym.
5. Excellent Materials
Another feature of modern apartments is the use of materials to be used both outdoors and indoors. Traditional materials such as glass, wood, brick, metals, marble, and aluminium are highly preferred. Also, the plants give a special feeling in the field of modern architecture, especially on the roofs, ceilings but more on the walls.
