Design of penthouses in Madrid
Penthouses tend to be the most sought-after properties in large cities. With a property of this type you get wonderful views and a peace and quiet that is unattainable in shared flats in the city centre. For this reason, homeowners who have the purchasing power to buy a penthouse in Madrid are nowadays looking for these marvellous and exclusive homes in the heights.
But… How do you get a penthouse in one of the best neighbourhoods to live in Madrid? The answer to this question is not easy to answer, as there are many issues to consider.
The building must be of good quality, located in an exclusive neighbourhood and the development must have the right amenities are some of the things to take into account.
However, we cannot forget that designing a penthouse in Madrid has to do with more than just choosing a good location.
In today’s article we are going to list the advantages that penthouses offer over conventional houses or flats. From Molins Design we have had the pleasure of working in some properties of this type. For this reason, today we come ready to inspire you with our most exclusive intervention in the community of Madrid: The Rechson penthouse. We will also take the opportunity to write down some design and decoration tips for these homes that are so sought after nowadays. If you are interested, read on carefully!
Advantages of penthouses in Madrid
There are many benefits to living in a penthouse as opposed to a flat in a big city like Madrid. Here are some of the most interesting reasons why you should choose this type of property:
1. Unlike flats, penthouses hardly lose their value over time. Even more so if they are located in the heart of the city centre or in urbanisations with all kinds of services for the daily use of their owners.
2. As they are built on the top floor of buildings, penthouses are the homes that offer the best views. Many of these homes have spectacular terraces, better known as rooftops, where many owners enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city.
3. Thanks to their location, these homes enjoy more hours of sunshine per day. Therefore, they receive more natural light; a wise choice both to improve the energy efficiency of the house, as well as to choose and highlight an exclusive and original decoration.
4. Another of the advantages offered by attics is greater privacy within the home. Unlike a ground floor house, penthouses do not compromise the privacy of their owners, unless they have neighbours on the same level.
5. In big cities like Madrid, penthouses are scarce and have become the jewel in the crown. The exclusivity offered by these properties is maximum, and today they are properties that very few can access.
The Rechson Penthouse in Madrid, a unique piece of design
For us, the property becomes an exclusive project that combines luxury, comfort and functionality in equal parts. Without a doubt, the Rechson home is one of the most spectacular luxury interior design for penthouse in Madrid. It is also one of our studio’s star architectural and decorative proposals and of the highest quality.
This spacious penthouse has a very elegant interior design. On the ground floor we find the rooms of daily use: living room, kitchen and dining room. All of this is connected by a magical hallway or entrance hall of the most sophisticated design. On the first floor of the penthouse we find the rest areas, which connect perfectly with an office for teleworking and a spectacular terrace with a swimming pool.
The outdoor spaces also include: a chill out area with sofas for relaxing, a fully equipped outdoor kitchen and a swimming pool as a decorative fountain for cooling off in the summer.
However, the really interesting feature of this Madrid penthouse is the technology inside. We can say that this home is fully domotized, to make the daily life of its owners much easier. Hence, the house has the necessary technology to programme the home’s heating systems, operate the lighting and even the audio systems even when outside the penthouse.
Design and decoration tips for attics
Finally, we do not want to say goodbye without first highlighting some of the tips to keep in mind when buying a penthouse in Madrid. Take note!
1.- Choose the best orientation and know the state of the property
First of all, you should take into account different aspects that have to do with the space and location of the property, whether your penthouse has a terrace or not, what its orientation is, how many square metres it has, etc.
2.- Check the hours of sunshine your attic receives each day.
It is very important to study the rooms that receive the most sunlight, in order to make the most of the natural light that the attic receives. It is also vital that you know during what hours your home will be exposed to this radiation.
As we have already said, it is interesting to take advantage of this natural light. But it will also be important to protect your home with the best enclosures and textiles to maintain an optimum temperature, whatever the time of year.
3.- Make a correct distribution of space
If you want to turn your home into a premium penthouse, you must go one step further and have a clear idea of the distribution of space. At this point, it is very important to have in mind the furniture to be placed in the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and dining room. This is essential to achieve an optimal and functional space for our day-to-day life.
If your penthouse has outdoor spaces, it is also vital that you think about the distribution of the garden, swimming pool or gymnasium areas that may be available. Leave all the ends well tied up!
4.- Opt for a decoration with light furniture and simple lines.
If you dream of a penthouse in Madrid in a comfortable and peaceful environment, we recommend you to choose a simple decoration. Choose a type of furniture that is practical and adaptable to your space, with straight and simple lines, which also combines with a range of light tones.
