Creating a Luxury Workout Space at Home

Dana & Jeff


A well-designed home gym can be a convenient addition to your luxury home, but planning the perfect luxury home gym can be difficult. The best home gyms work to maximize the homeowners workout while at the same time maintaining the home’s character. When planning your home gym, there are a couple items to keep in mind, including the space your gym will occupy, the amount of equipment you’ll need, and the design aesthetic you hope to achieve in the room. These helpful tips below will leave you well suited to create the at home workout you’ve been dreaming of.

Analyzing the space your luxury home gym will occupy is the first step in your design process. To maximize your gym experience, the room should include windows that bring in natural light and proper ventilation to ensure comfort. Skylights and air filtration systems are also features that will enhance your workout by making the room more light and airy. And gyms that open to the outside allow you to seamlessly transition your workout from indoors to out in seconds.


Consider fitting your home gym for for technological advancements. In addition to a large television, adding a surround sound system to your luxury home gym can provide added entertainment. Smart home gym equipment is also a terrific way to enhance your workout even further.
While technologically advanced equipment is a smart addition to your luxury home gym, traditional equipment is tried and true. Making room for large pieces of gym equipment is essential, but also remember to account for the space needed for cardio workouts or yoga. Creating an open-concept layout in your home gym will help you maximize your space and give you the option to include a variety of workout routines into your regimen. 

The room’s design aesthetic requires attention when planning your luxury home gym. The design of your home gym should match the aesthetic of the rest of your home while taking into account the functionality needed in a gym area. The floor in your gym should be durable enough to withstand the everyday stress placed on it from workouts and heavy equipment, soft enough to cushion someone if they fall, and non-slip to prevent accidents. 
Lighting and storage are other design elements to consider when planning your luxury home gym. A gym area should be well-lit and make use of both natural light from windows, as well as artificial lighting from recessed lights or other light fixtures. Ceiling fans with lights are also beneficial to increasing light in the room and assisting with air circulation. Your luxury home gym will need ample storage space to put away smaller equipment when it is not in use. Open wall shelving or built-in cabinets are great options for gym storage.
You can’t forget about decor when designing your luxury home gym either. Large wall mirrors are useful decorative accents, as well as inspirational artwork, decorative moulding, or an accent wall of wood, brick or a bright color. Bringing in decorative accents will help you bridge the style of your luxury home gym with your home’s overall design, creating a clear cohesion that will enhance the beauty of your entire house.
