Defining a Luxurious Lifestyle
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? Whether you’re 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, there are common qualities that can define a luxurious lifestyle. Millennials consider luxurious lifestyle as associated with convenience, healthy living, good experiences, social conscience, a positive state of mind and it is no longer dictated by location.
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. At present, many people nowadays live in great pretention and everything they have is superficial, and the richest people truly know that not all that glitters are gold. 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. If a single family dwelling or luxurious apartment is located centrally, it will take the highest bidder because luxurious living now is equated to convenience rather than location. Today, comfort and convenience means luxurious living, not having to deal with heavy traffic, pollution, long distance travel, blistering heat or freezing temperatures. 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. It means being able to sustain the kind of lifestyle you have beyond using LED lights and recycling.
Today, having more means needing more effort, time and money to sustain them, so the richest people keep everything simply 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. It actually, all boils down to a person’s state of mind because luxurious living can be experienced by anyone, it is a matter of choice, choosing to be contented and comfortable with what you have and working harder for other things you want to achieve.
