Being rich can be a bit like living in a bubble. You don’t have to interact with any non-rich people at all. Your neighborhood is gated, your kids go to private schools, you play golf at expensive golf courses that are also gated, and you shop at pricey stores in parts of town where people without Lamborghinis would never go. The rest of the world is just sort of…out there. Well, that’s us. The poor folks.
From our perspective, the rich life seems a bit mysterious. Make no mistake, most of us want it. It’s just that we’re not even sure about what it really is. Heated driveways? That’s a thing? How does that even work? And seasonal furniture? Okay, wow. So you’re telling me that I have to change my furniture every few months? This all seems like a lot of work! Yup, it is. But guess what? When you can afford to change your furniture that often, chances are you can afford to have people to do that for you. As you may have guessed, rich people have room service not just at their fancy hotels, but in their fancy homes as well.
After reading this post, the next time you drive past that nice gated community, you’ll know what’s hiding on the other side. These are 25 home features that only rich people have!
This isn’t your ordinary library though. Most of these libraries are full of books that rich people buy simply to stock their library, but never to read. And yes, this is an actual thing. The books are usually old and have antique spines.
Intercoms in every room
So that you can talk to each other about how rich you are without ever having to get up.
A house with a name
Nothing screams “I’m rich!” more than naming your house. This is especially true if the name is followed by the word “Estate.”
Lots of space
Unless you live in Texas, having lots of room is at least a partial giveaway that you’ve got deep pockets.
A basketball court
Statues of themselves
You might be laughing, but just think of almost every king ever. Rich people aren’t too different.
Support staff living on the premises
Except for Asia, this is one of the most reliable signs of wealth.
Note: In Asia, middle class families have servants, too.
We’re talking about wearable chips that the house actually interacts with in order to modify the room temperature to match your preset preference.
Not a boat, a yacht.
A bowling alley
With a snack stand.
Well, they probably own the bank anyway, so having an ATM at home is probably no big deal.
An indoor swimming pool
Or a heated outdoor pool.
Heated bathroom floors
So that your feet never get cold.
Gold plated toilet seats
Because they can.
A heated driveway
So you don’t have to plow snow in winter
Everything gets swapped out, from the tables down to the napkins.
A home theatre
And we don’t just mean a big flat screen TV. We mean an actual theatre with stadium seating.
This is usually one of the first things you’ll notice when you roll up.
A walk-in humidor
Because a regular humidor couldn’t hold all those cigars.
When you can’t fit all of your Lambos and Ferarris in one spot, you just stack them.
A blank spot on google maps
Because the house is either not there, or it’s blurred out.
A central vacuum cleaner
It’s a vacuum cleaner that’s built into the house, so basically you have little slots where the wall meets the floor. That’s where you shovel all the dirt to get sucked away.
A guest house
Because your guest’s deserve more than just a room
They usually look like cabinets.
A panic room
Just in case anybody finds out that you’re rich and tries to steal your seasonal furniture.
