Luxury Home Solutions’ Mediterranean House Plans Offer a Great Design Alternative

luxury home solutions

A home’s design not only impacts the potential sale value but also contributes to the enjoyment a family gets from living in it now, especially in Fort Myers and Naples Florida. That simply means families considering building a new custom home should carefully consider the style of home they buy rather than simply selecting from available properties. Luxury Home Solutions’ Mediterranean designs, for example, are quite common in the Southwest Florida region, and with good reason.

The style’s name suggests its origin. Mediterranean homes emulate the styles of homes located in the areas around the Mediterranean Sea and use many of the materials traditionally employed in that region’s construction. We use tile roofs and stuccoed walls which are the materials of choice and are excellent options for our Southwest Florida region’s climate and home styles. The materials are rugged, withstanding the storms common in our area.

Mediterranean sea areas are quite hot, and the styles originating there were intended to provide homeowners with ventilation, outdoor living spaces, and shade from the hot summer sun. Today, Naples homeowners are taking steps to spend more time outdoors, and Mediterranean house plans easily accommodate those needs. Verandas, balconies, and courtyards all lend  themselves to enjoying the outdoors even during hotter weather.

Another aspect of custom Mediterranean house plans home buyers should consider is the color. Typically, our custom Mediterranean homes used shades to minimize the absorption of heat and still blend with the surrounding environment. While earth tones are often used, other colors are also used to provide style elements and make the homes appear welcoming and comfortable. Sea colors and hues in the yellow spectrum are also common, allowing homeowners an opportunity to express themselves while still keeping the sun’s heat at bay. Interior colors are often more adventurous but still reflect a seaside themes.

The Luxury Home Solutions’ Mediterranean house plans also provide solid value for Naples home buyers, as the style has been a solid favorite for years. Of course, construction materials and interior design have evolved significantly, but the exterior look endures and will likely do so in the future. People love the theme, and its popularity is understandable, as the exterior tends to be low maintenance, which allows owners to spend more time enjoying their property and less time maintaining it. When considering a new home, don’t overlook the advantages provided by the Luxury Home Solutions’ Mediterranean style.

Riverfront Poolside Retreat

Project Overview:

The homeowners were originally seeking to add an in-ground pool to their expansive 13 acre property in Alva, FL. With the help Luxury Home Solutions’ custom home building and remodeling contractor, Norm Bloxham, their vision expanded into creating relaxing pool and guest cabana for the family and their guests to enjoy. The project included designing and building the entire space from concept to completion and taking into consideration all of the special details that make this project so unique.

Special Details:

To accommodate the request for maximized sunlight, the deck area was elevated by four feet, and the degree of the angle the house was built on allows for maximum sun exposure on the pool deck. The deck was also built with a bullnose surrounding for safety to prevent slipping and the bathroom and entries to the house were built to allow for wheelchair accessibility.

Key Client Considerations:

A major consideration for the homeowners was having family members that need wheelchair accessibility, certain safety measures and accessibility aspects had to be taken into consideration to allow for ease and comfort when they are visiting in the guest house. The homeowner also wanted to ensure that the structure of the deck and pool area maximized sunlight for their relaxation and recreation while enjoying their pool.

Services Performed:

  • Built a one bedroom, fully functional guest house
  • Designed and created layout for guest house, pool, and outdoor living space
  • Structurally engineered with steel columns to maximize view

Bonita Bay Outdoor Expansion

Project Overview:

Bonita Bay residents were looking to expand their living space and create a functional and beautiful outdoor entertainment area for guests. Luxury Home Solutions was able to help them accomplish this goal by adding onto their existing space that made it look as though it had always been there. To accomplish this, LHS added onto the lanai area, constructed a privacy fence around it, constructed a custom pergola, and helped build a functional outdoor kitchen area.

Special Details:

This beautiful outdoor living space features a tiled fountain that was installed as a conversation piece in one of the sitting areas.

Key Client Considerations:

  • The clients wanted to be able to seamlessly extend their outdoor living space by expanding it in a way that made it look as if it had always been there instead of looking like an add-on.
  • They wanted to incorporate multiple seating areas for entertaining, and make sure that everything was fenced and screened to keep pests out.
  • With Season approaching and strict community rules prohibiting construction, LHS had a very tight timeline to complete all construction  for the project

I didn’t fully appreciate the extent of the details involved in an outdoor project like this, but Luxury Home Solutions was on top of every one of them. They listened to what we wanted for the space and had great collaboration throughout the project. I believed it would have been a miracle l to accomplish what we did in the timeline we had due to community restrictions, but Keith and the LHS team were able to deliver. I would recommend them to anyone remodeling in Naples or Bonita Bay.
Phil O., Homeowner in Bonita Bay

Special Details:
