Can luxury be defined?

Managing Real Estate Broker

I think Luxury is relative and not absolute. It’s all about the person’s point of view on the particular subject that really matters. Below are the dictionary definitions of luxury!

1.a material object, service, etc., conducive to sumptuous living, usually a delicacy, elegance, or refinement of living rather than a necessity: Gold cufflinks were a luxury not allowed for in his budget.

2. free or habitual indulgence in or enjoyment of comforts and pleasures in addition to those necessary for a reasonable standard of well-being: a life of luxury on the French Riviera.

3. a means of ministering to such indulgence or enjoyment: This travel plan gives you the luxury of choosing which countries you can visit.

4. a pleasure out of the ordinary allowed to oneself: the luxury of an extra piece of the cake.

Maybe luxury could define when and where do you give yourself time to listen to nothing and to think about what drifts into your over-stimulated mind?

Luxury is relative, not absolute, so it’s your point of view on the subject really matters.  The idea is something that few people really stop and think about. Do you know what luxury really means to you? What is it you find luxurious and fabulous?

Rarity, price, and one of a kind crafting are integral elements of luxury. But luxurious things, materials or the way they are made do not always create true luxury. For instance, a counter top of rare marble is not automatically a luxury. If it lies in an kitchen where it frequently becomes wet and scratched with knife marks, it is not necessarily a luxury.

Life without ANY luxury is hard. Please remember that you can’t always take it with you. Here, we explore it is all about your choices and the community, this perspective you can apply to your personal life.

When it comes to real estate, luxury is not just the high-end finishes and materials described but rather a decision. This is a decision to decide what is an important luxury to YOU!

Luxury to me right now is a good book, a walk, lots of chocolate and some relaxation.
