As chief operations manager of Vucina Construction, Inc., Ryan Vucina focuses largely on the building of custom luxury homes. Recognized as a premier and select builder, Ryan Vucina commits himself to providing clients with their desired features and amenities.
In the luxury home market, buyers often favor features that make the property feel on-trend and modern. In 2016, one of the most popular such features is radiant floor heating. This innovation has become an in-demand amenity in kitchens, bathrooms, and even mudrooms, and its widespread popularity suggests that it will be a highly desirable element of luxury homes for many years to come.
The same may be said for smart home technology, which allows owners mobile control over lighting, temperature, door locks, and other connected features. The kitchen has become a particularly popular location for smart technology, as owners appreciate being able to customize refrigerator functions or receive alerts if the stove is on for an extended period of time. Technology has even made its way into the bathroom, where shower doors turn opaque when the shower is on and mirrors become television or Internet-enabled screens.
Despite all of this technology, however, luxury home owners still appreciate the ability to entertain their guests face-to-face. Outdoor kitchens are in high demand, as are wine-tasting rooms and even private movie theaters. The combination of features depends on the homeowner's personality, which ultimately may be the greatest appeal of the custom-built luxury home.
