A New Luxury Trend: Experienced-Based Homes

As the younger generations begin to fill the housing market, we will begin to hear a lot more about “experience-based homes”. Currently we are seeing a lot of the “dopamine decor” and “personalized eclecticism” as the popularity of personal creativity mixed into our home styles continues to grow. 

An experienced-based home is just as it sounds, a living space designed to enhance one’s experience and well-being. The focus is to create a space that encourages and includes the stuff you love to do and surround yourself with, overall improving one’s quality of life. There are many different styles of experienced-based homes, as everyone enjoys a different experience, but they tailor to your specific interests or hobbies. 

As we look deeper into 2024, Architectural Digest is calling this the year of the “Both/And” floor plan, creating a more unique design compared to the typical style we’ve been seeing. Although open floor plans will still hold an important role in today’s homes, there are new and old trends coming about. We can expect rooms to change in their order of priority and time-spent. For example, we can begin to see dining rooms change to offices, and offices change to wellness spaces. Whatever the change may be for you, we can see rooms conforming to their owners desires to provide the best overall experience for them, rather than just a functional one. There are currently seven categories for experienced-based homes to help better understand the styles and ideas we are seeing today.


Equipped with advanced technology for convenience and entertainment, such as automated lighting, thermostats, and entertainment systems controlled by voice or smartphone apps. 


Designed to promote health and well-being through features like indoor air purification systems, natural light optimization, and spaces for meditation or yoga. 


Focused on providing entertainment options such as home theaters, game rooms, and outdoor entertainment areas with features like fire pits and outdoor kitchens. 


Incorporating eco-friendly features like solar panels, rainwater harvesting systems, and energy-efficient appliances to reduce environmental impact and provide a more sustainable living experience. 


Designed to inspire creativity with features like dedicated art studios, galleries, or spaces for performance art, as well as unique architectural elements and decor. 


Reflecting the cultural background or interests of the residents through design choices, decor, and amenities that celebrate specific traditions, cuisines, or art forms. 


Geared towards outdoor enthusiasts with features like gear storage areas, proximity to outdoor recreational opportunities, and amenities for activities like hiking, skiing, or water sports.
