A sunken bedroom with fireplace
Having a fireplace in the master bedroom isn’t something you find in many parts of the country. However, in Colorado, it can be charming and practical. A brick or stone fireplace surround adds warmth to the living space. Some bedrooms may have doors that open to a landing and then step down to the bedroom space, which can also add to the cozy feel.
Outdoor living spaces
Another feature to look for when buying a home in Boulder, CO is outdoor living space. According to an article by U.S. News & World Report, luxury outdoor living is one of several housing trends that emerged from the housing boom but is expected to remain. Many Boulder-area homes have balconies and patios for entertaining. Pine trees, stones in the landscaping and native Colorado plantings can be added, but mature landscaping increases the value of any home.
Distinctive architectural features
Wrought iron on an entryway door and wrought iron stair railings and even decorating lighting fixtures can complement wood in a rustic home. Lanterns outside and lantern-style lighting fixtures in a kitchen, stone backsplashes in the kitchen and a touch of plaid with drapes, warm colors such as brown and deep red in the furniture also add warmth to a Colorado home.
When it comes to buying a home in Colorado, there are some interior design changes you can make yourself to warm up a space and other features such as wainscoting and coffered ceilings that may draw you to the space. Balancing contemporary stainless steel appliances, high ceiling heights and expansive windows with wood, stone and warm colors often creates the most desirable space for Colorado living.
