Let’s be honest; most of us will not have the wealth necessary to purchase a mansion with extravagant amenities — but that doesn’t mean we can’t daydream about it! Many home furnishings and features seem to cater exclusively to the super-rich. Recently, men and women met in an online discussion to reveal all the things typically found in a rich person’s home.
1. More Than One Kitchen
Having one kitchen is so middle-class! You know you’re in a rich person’s house when they have two or more kitchens. Commonly called a butler’s kitchen or a prep kitchen, secondary kitchens have all the same amenities as the central kitchen, but it’s usually placed out of sight by guests. After meals, you’ll never see dishes washed in plain sight — they are cleaned in the butler’s kitchen instead!
2. Heated Bathroom Floors
According to many, you can tell if a homeowner is wealthy when you step barefoot onto a bathroom floor. If the floor is heated, they’re most undoubtedly rich! However, installing heated bathroom floors is an upgrade the middle class is beginning to afford! “Yeah, I live in a completely average house, and when we redid our bathroom, we installed floor heating instead of a radiator. Not that expensive, not very luxurious, but very nice.”
3. A Grand Piano
Even if nobody in the home can play it, grand pianos are commonly found in the homes of wealthy families. It’s the ultimate statement piece for a large room; it conveys sophistication and class. New grand pianos can cost over $30,000 — that’s an incredible amount of money for something that is essentially used as a piece of art.
4. A High-Tech Surveillance System
You know a person is wealthy when they have a state-of-the-art surveillance system installed in their house! “The first time I visited a rich friend, he had monitors in a separate room with feeds to cameras placed in and outside his house,” recalls one man.
“Normally, you will see this kind of investment in chain stores but households. This surveillance system looked like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster. His parents must have been cautious people or something.”
5. An Infinity Pool
While above-ground pools are common in neighborhoods, in-ground pools are even more scarce due to their high cost. However, no type of pool costs more than an infinity pool, usually found in high-end mansions and summer houses. Is there anything more pretentious than spending hundreds of thousands of dollars turning your backyard into a mini-Caribbean resort?
6. A Wine Cellar
Arguably, nothing screams, “I’m rich!” more than owning a wine cellar. It’s so over-the-top that even middle-class people have to accept it begrudgingly. “My friend has a wine pairing annex and cellar,” reveals one woman.
“It has temperature-controlled elements and an artisan tasting area — think marble-topped table and chairs. What hurts me most is that it used to be a recording studio.”
7. A Grandfather Clock
Grandfather clocks, like grand pianos, are garish statement pieces that offer little-to-no function. Many wealthy homes have more than one grandfather clock, which is a sign that the homeowners have so much money they don’t know what to do with it. (Bonus points to these wealthy homeowners if their grandfather clocks actually work).
8. Refrigerators That Blend Into Cabinets
Rich people love making it seem that their kitchens are nothing more than endless cabinets and storage. They are so obsessed with seamless integration that they will pay top dollar to camouflage common appliances like refrigerators and ovens.
“In the United States, refrigerators that can be seamlessly integrated are exorbitantly expensive — at least ten times a conventional stand-alone unit,” explains one contractor. “It’s a huge price to pay to ‘hide’ your appliances into your kitchen cabinets.”
9. A Soaking Tub in the Bathroom
In many homes, the highlight is the primary en suite bathroom. These rooms are filled with lavish opulence and high-end amenities, so it’s easy to be impressed! Moreover, rich people’s bathrooms have one thing in common: A gorgeous soaking tub. While they’re more for show than function, they are nevertheless the centerpiece of a luxurious bathroom.
10. A Movie Theater
If you find yourself sitting in a movie theater inside a house, congratulations: You’re in a rich person’s home. From authentic stadium seating to a larger-than-life projection screen to a perfectly tuned surround sound system, rich people spare no expense in turning one of their spare rooms into a cinematic viewing haven!
