#1 Fireplace Design - See-through fireplace between the Formal Dining Room and Great Room

BrysonGreatRoom4 (1)

This see-through fireplace between the Formal Dining Room and Great Room provides a warm centerpiece to the gathering areas in this custom designed home by Stanton Homes. It also serves as structural support. Stone colors were selected to add softness and blend with gray walls and hardwood flooring. Additional stone accents in the Great Room and Front Porch provide continuity for this design theme.

 

#2 Fireplace Design - See-through fireplace between the Master Suite and the Dressing Area

RemingtonMasterFireplace2

This 3-sided see-through fireplace was custom designed to provide views of the fireplace from the master suite, dressing area and master bath.

#3 Fireplace Design - See-through fireplace between the Great Room and Keeping Room

Horizon 7 Fireplace into stairway

This see-through fireplace provides firelight views from the Keeping Room, Great Room and Kitchen. The stacked stone adds a lightness to this massive floor to ceiling fireplace structure. A custom built Craftsman mantle was site-built to create a unique accent.

 

#4 Fireplace Design - See-through fireplace between the Great Room and Breakfast Room

FirebirdGreatRoom2

This see-through fireplace was strategically placed toward the side, to allow for more wide open space between the Breakfast Room and Great Room. It's open view from either side enables everyone in the main areas of the home to enjoy its warmth. But it's positioning makes it more of a statement than a centerpiece, with the ability to create a more intimate sitting area apart from the rest of the room.

 

#5 Fireplace Design - See-through fireplace between the Great Room and Screened Porch

WoodlandRetreatKitchenGreatRoom

This see-through fireplace emphasizes outdoor living, with a connection from the home's biggest gathering points to the screen porch. A wall of windows further emphasizes the link to additional entertainment areas outside. Access to the fireplace on the outside of the home extends usage of the screen porch for year-round enjoyment.

 

4 Modern Fireplaces

 

#6 Fireplace Design - Modern Fireplace by the Back Stairwell

This modern fireplace is replicated by the geometric design of windows that reflect the shape in an alternate pattern nearby. Designed for the simplicity of a contemporary design, its presence is strong - with the effect of a single work of art on a large wall - and yet subtle.

 

#7 Fireplace Design - Modern Fireplace by the Sun Room

NewRiverHouseGreatRoom

This modern fireplace is framed in marble that draws attention to its significance. Set on the back wall of the Great Room facing the Kitchen, this fireplace is further enhanced by an abundance of natural light through glass doors and walls of windows that encase every aspect of the sunroom to its side.

 

#8 Fireplace Design - Modern Fireplace in the Entrance

NorthHillsFireplace

This custom designed modern fireplace with an artistic raised hearth setting provides a dramatic black and white contemporary touch to the entrance of this custom home.  Tucked into a front corner of the Great Room, its one of the first unique aspects to be noticed upon entering the home. 


 #9 Fireplace Design - Modern Fireplace on the Entertainment Floor

This modern fireplace offers warmth to this basement retreat, in tandem with a full bar, wine rack and spacious entertainment areas. Set into a stone surround, the fireplace setting reflects the color choice in a brick wall behind the bar. An engineered wood floor ties the room together with similar soft brown tones with a hint of gray that matches the surrounding walls.

 

7 Custom Designed Fireplaces with Cabinetry

 

#10 Fireplace Design - Custom Designed Fireplace with Cabinetry and Light

This modern/contemporary fireplace in NC is designed to be a very important part of the room, with extensive cabinetry on both sides as well as custom designed trim detail. The entire wall of windows (including transom windows) light up every detail. The stain choice for the hardwood floor and the stark white features are a nice contrast with pale blue and gray accent walls.

 

#11 Fireplace Design - Custom Designed Fireplace with Shelving and Transoms 

BroganFamilyRoom

This custom designed fireplace provides a spark of simplistic color in room dominated by white accents - from a huge coffered ceiling to wall to wall shelving, and white rails and trim work on the stairway beyond. The fireplace is framed by big tiles (including a flat hearth) and topped by a site built mantle. Transoms over the top of the shelving on either side of the fireplace add natural light.

 

#12 Fireplace Design - Custom Designed Fireplace with Shelving and Shiplap

This NC new home fireplace has a surround of gray tile and white grout with a custom made mantle and shiplap backdrop. The alternating splashes of gray and white add interest. White trim around the double sliding glass door with picture windows on either side, as well as white trim at the ceiling and floor complete this modern farmhouse fireplace setting.

 

 #13 Fireplace Design - Custom Designed Fireplace with Cabinetry and Shelving 

ElkPointGreatRoom

This custom designed fireplace setting is choreographed with its surroundings. Lower cabinetry follow the wall and extend around the corner, to fully encase the entire end of the room. Upper shelves to the left replicate the look of the overhead catwalk to the right, with parallel lines as opposed to the horizontal lines of the railings. The custom fireplace choice of solid black pops from the white backdrop. Tan walls meld beautifully with the stain choice for the hardwood flooring.

 

 #14 Fireplace Design - Custom Designed Fireplace with Contemporary Shelving

TreehouseGreatRoomFireplace

This custom designed fireplace gets right to the point, with a contemporary design in grey, black and white. Basic shelving, Craftsman trim, and straightforward simplicity make this fireplace stand out. Slate surround and a flat slate hearth retain the purity of design, with a no-nonsense approach to a design/build custom fireplace. 

 

#15 Fireplace Design - Custom Designed Fireplace with Classic Cabinetry and Shelving

LowCountryFarmhouseGreatRoom3-1

This custom designed fireplace is traced in tradition, with cabinetry and shelving placement that has remained popular for generations. The site built custom mantle adds an interesting twist, with clever trim pieces that were hand drawn and selected.

 

4 Fireplaces with Tile or Marble Surrounds

 

#16 Fireplace Design - European Fireplace with Tile Surround

ArcadiaGreatRoom-3

The totally unique fireplace and island in this picture were hand crafted by Stanton Homes based on European influence and the custom requests of the homebuyer who worked directly with the design/build team to create this home. You won't find anything like this in a production or semi-custom home. It's a perfect example of how creative you can be when you build a truly custom home.

 

#17 Fireplace Design - Fireplace with Marble Surround 

WorthingtonFamilyRoom_2

Next to a chef's kitchen that pulled out all the stops, this classic fireplace overlooks the Great Room. With a soaring ceiling above, the subtle simplicity of a traditional fireplace set in a stone surround with a barely-there basic mantle and crisp white trim is the perfect anecdote to this upscale custom home. 

 

#18 Fireplace Design - Fireplace with French Country Surround

GlenviewB12GreatRoom3

Set in a place of importance on the longest wall in the Great room, with a wall of windows on either side and coach lights to draw attention, this custom built fireplace adds a playfulness to the gathering area through a tile mosaic surround. The site built mantle adds a bold shelf above and columns on either side further capitalize on the French Country design of this custom home.

 

#19 Fireplace Design - Grecian Fireplace with Marble Surround

This fireplace has contemporary/modern appeal, with custom designed hand built columns, mantle, and sculpted artistry to the ceiling. The crisp linen effect is accented by a marble surround. This is just one of the four fireplaces in this custom home in NC - each fireplace has an entirely different look and purpose. Click the photo to see the others.

9 Trending Master Bathroom Cabinetry placement and priorities for 2019

Posted by Stanton Homes on Wed, Nov 14, 2018 @ 08:11 AM

9 Master Bath Cabinetry Photos for 2019 [And a bonus]

Chatham County New Homes [Master Bath Cabinetry Placement, Style and Purpose, with Photos] 

Master Bathroom cabinetry choices are about more than choosing style and finish. Their placement and purpose determine the dynamics of the entire bathroom - considered the second most important room in new custom homes in NC, by homebuyers. Here are 9 determinations that impact master bathroom cabinetry in 2019.  

Click on photos to see the rest of each home.

 

#1 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Close Proximity to the Sauna and the Soaking Tub 

AvonstoneManor with sauna

Each purpose for your custom home bathroom can be designed for convenience and practicality, when your builder puts together your layout to fit your lifestyle. In the photo above, dual vanities provide personal space with lots of cabinetry, drawers, big sinks, massive mirrors - just a few steps from the sauna (to the right rear, with the closed glass door, with a bench inside) and the huge tub in the other direction, that you can see if you click on this photo to see the rest of the home.

 

#2 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Size of the room 

LakeHouseMasterBath4

In this custom Stanton Home, master bathroom cabinetry is tucked into the corner of the room, to take advantage of the room's configuration. One vanity is larger than the other, with six drawers and two doors. The smaller vanity has two doors. A lowered section in the middle has a big drawer, as well, with space for a chair to slide under. The granite countertop was chosen to reflect the brown towns in stained cabinetry and tile floor. 

 

#3 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity placement - one long countertop with two sinks

JudsonMasterBath2-1

Still a classic placement, this master bathroom cabinetry provide two sinks with the separation of massive countertop space in the middle with drawers underneath. The granite countertop was chosen to blend with the soft toned tile floor and massive tile shower for two.

 

#4 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Two Separate Vanities 

BrysonMasterBath5

When more personal space is needed, a custom home builder can look at ways to create a layout in the bathroom where the vanities are located in two different places - typically across from each other, like the master bath cabinetry in this photo. Granite countertops were chosen to blend the dark furniture stained cabinetry with white tile and gray walls and curtain. Hardware choice is Contemporary. Standing bathtub choice is romance. Natural light through a big picture window brightens up everything.

 

#5 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Separate Vanities Tied Together 

BarcelonaMasterBath3

This Modern master bathroom cabinetry emphasizes personal space - tied together with a decorative beam over the top and a lowered countertop makeup table that pulls everything together. Square sinks and a white finish to drawers and cabinet doors, together with very trendy wood-look tile make the design of this room feel clean and contemporary.

 

#6 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Tucked next to the Tub

CotswoldMasterBath

The focus in this master bathroom is the sumptuous soaking tub, designed for a luxurious bathing experience - so the purpose of the dual vanities tucked in next to the tub is to provide personal space and room for easy movement between the vanities and the tub. The extensive use of tile for the heightened tub surround and floor together with classic columns are tied together with the dark stained cabinetry.

 

#7 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Additional Storage 

PeayMasterBath-34

Adding a wardrobe to your master suite bathroom can be a big consideration when choosing your master bath cabinetry. Custom home builders may have to expand your bathroom square footage to fit in this much cabinetry, but it provides the ultimate in storage. The vanities in this master bath are further defined as personal space by their alcoves, framed in beautiful archways. The entire room is white and bright, with lots of fixtures and natural light.

 

#8 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Rounding the Corner

CoveMasterBathroom4

Here's another way to add a wardrobe to your master bathroom. The cabinetry in this master bath follows the angle of the wall, allowing for maximum usage with lots of space to move around and plenty of personal space. This is another example of a larger vanity and smaller vanity being separated from each other, with the wardrobe as the tie-together. Brown tones define the room.

 

#9 Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Artistic Design 

CoqueryCottageMasterBath2

In this totally custom master suite bathroom, the artistry of the design has the biggest impact on vanity placement. This is another example of an extended vanity across one wall with a single countertop. In this case, the focus of the room is on the tub encased in small tiles and the huge walk-in shower behind it. The granite countertop for the dual vanity was chosen to blend with the bath and shower tile as well as the wood-look tile floor.

 #10 (Bonus) Master Bathroom Cabinetry Consideration: Vanity Placement - Compatibility with the island in the closet 

DuganMasterBathroom2

This master bathroom cabinetry has one traditional vanity with a sink separated by a wardroom from a roll-under sink in the second vanity. The furniture appeal is matched by an island in the master suite closet to the rear. Subtle brown tones tie the rooms together, with oak hardwood in the closet that is stained with the same hue. This entire bathroom was designed for accessibility, with a roll-in shower and easy glide transitions from tile to hardwood.

Posted by Stanton Homes on Thu, Nov 08, 2018 @ 10:11 AM

9 Big Kitchen Islands with Photos

North Carolina Custom Home Builder Tips and Trends

Big islands in the Kitchen are the number one request for new homes in NC for 2019. Lifestyles seem to center in the Kitchen, and big islands give everyone somewhere to be.

Here are 9 top trending big kitchen islands.

Click on photos to see the rest of each home.

 

#1 Big Kitchen Island - Center sink, central storage

This big island is framed with walnut cabinetry on two sides, for easy access to storage from both the kitchen and the great room. 

The sink in the middle of the island allows for easy conversation with everyone else in the room while cooking and cleaning, with adjacent dishwasher access.

A beautiful furniture finish adds formality. 

 

#2 Big Kitchen Island - Veggie sink, microwave under the island

In this chef's kitchen designed for entertainment, the huge kitchen island has a veggie sink tucked into the corner with lots of space to spread out. 

There is spacious cabinetry under both sides of the island, and a microwave tucked under the countertop.

The kitchen island is the perfect center point for this well thought out layout. 

 

#3 Big Kitchen Island - Bold personality with tuck under sitting

 The ability to choose your own granite slab for your big island kitchen in your new custom home provides the opportunity to make the island even more of a focal point, like this artistic choice.

This big kitchen island has a veggie sink in the corner, for flexibility.

There is room enough under the island to tuck bar stools out of sight.

 

#4 Big Kitchen Island - Double islands with versatility

This upscale chef's kitchen has two islands, to separate work space and provide more versatility.

A typical sized island is in the foreground, with a microwave underneath.

A big kitchen island is to the rear, with two levels of surface, including a seating bar.

 

#5 Big Kitchen Island - Angled, for more open space

This custom designed kitchen has even more open space, with the big kitchen island angled to allow for more flow-through.

There is seating room at the back of the island, and huge storage shelving on one side. 

The kitchen island has a full size sink in the island, with the microwave tucked into the cabinetry across from the sink. 

 

#6 Big Kitchen Island - Custom designed, like the rest of the kitchen

This custom designed big island was created as part of an artistic architectural blend for a chef's kitchen accented with stone, tile, and furniture-finished premium cabinetry that includes glass doors.

There is seating on one side and a full size sink in the middle of the big island, for easy conversations and convenience.

This big kitchen island is within easy reach of double wall ovens, cooktop, and refrigerator.

 

#7 Big Kitchen Island - Long and narrow

Even when a narrow kitchen can have a big kitchen island - like this one, with six drawers, three double cabinets and a ten foot span. 

When a big kitchen island is narrow and long, it works best to keep the surface open, like this one, with the sink across from it in the countertop.

The white and light tile backsplash, countertops, cabinetry and wall color make this kitchen feel even bigger.

 

#8 Big Kitchen Island - Furniture 

This entire kitchen was created with the formality of furniture, with a big kitchen island as the center of activity. 

The big kitchen island has a veggie sink to one side, across from a full sink in the countertop. 

There is cabinetry underneath the front and back of the island, with a combination of drawers and cupboards.

A tile floor and listello accents in the tile backsplash add personality.

 

#9 Big Kitchen Island - Seating Bar with easy access to the Great Room

This classic black and white kitchen island offers a clean, open surface for cooking preparations as well as gatherings that often center around the island.

Seating at the back provides even more flexibility for this simple and effective big island solution.

Flow through from the Great Room is easy, with this open floor plan.

This soaking tub, bathed in soft surrounds with a touch of glass tile trim, is designed with functionality, with plenty of room for candles and towels.

 

Soaking tub #8 for NC custom homes in 2019 - Modern Meld 

This soaking tub combines clean angles with big gray block and white subway toned surround (with an artsy touch to the adjacent shower floor). Today's most popular architectural features often blend design styles.

 

Soaking tub #9 for NC custom homes in 2019 - Making a Statement

This soaking tub is set into a tile surround replicated on the floor and shower that exhibits the personal expression of hand chosen selections in NC custom homes. The brown and tan hues seen here foretell a return to tans and browns in many new home color choices in 2019.

9 Drop Zone Photos and Dimensions | NC New Home Builder

Posted by Stanton Homes on Mon, Oct 29, 2018 @ 10:10 AM

Mudroom Drop Zone Ideas

NC Custom Homes with built in Drop Zones 

What's a Drop Zone?

A drop off spot for coats, shoes, kids stuff and anything else you want to find quickly.

Get ideas from these nine mudroom drop zones built by Stanton Homes. (Click photos to see more.)

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #1: Family Storage Center

 

 

This drop zone has upper and lower cubbies, coat hooks with letter inlays that spell "family"), and dual closets. 

Wainscoting adds formality to this traditional laundry room design, complete with a custom drop zone.

The size of this drop zone is 366x244.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #2: Multi-Use Cubby System

An open archway leads from the breakfast room and kitchen to this tucked-in mudroom space.

While many mudrooms are built into the laundry room, this drop zone was integrated in a stand-alone storage space.

Upper cubbies are perfect for hats, gloves, purses and light weight items to grab on the way out. Lower cubbies double as a bench seat.

The size of this drop zone is 366x562.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #3: Tucked in small spaces

 

 

This drop zone fits into a space that would otherwise be unusable.

But it still has big, bold cubbies and a place to sit or stack things.

The size of this drop zone is 366x549.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #4: Closable Bins

This drop zone provides storage space you can close off, with the clean appeal of hinged cover bins.

Closable cubbies like these are especially popular for kids toys.

Coat hooks add even more practicality. 

The size of this drop zone is 366x244.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #5: Full Wall of Storage

This mudroom, tucked between the garage and kitchen, has a place for everything, with the drop zone as its focal point.

The full wall of custom built in shelving offers open concept storage. 

Hooks in the center section are great for coats, purses and keys.  

The drop zone's location right across from a sink and cabinets makes this space even more usable.

The size of this drop zone is 366x249.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #6: Light it up

 

This drop zone comes with cubbieshooksbench - and a window.

The size of this drop zone is 366x557.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #7: Adjacent to the laundry room

This drop zone is packed full of cubbies, so it's easy to see, store and grab on the go.

Designed for traffic flow, it's location right outside the laundry room makes it easy to access.

Cubbies are sized perfectly for colorful buckets or baskets.  

The size of this drop zone is 366x256.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #8: More Shoe Space



This drop zone doubles up shoe space, with dual layer cubbies designed for footwear. 

Hooks can be placed by your custom home builder to add more hanging space, too.

Open storage at the top can double up as a place to put things out of reach of little ones.

The size of this drop zone is 366x552.

 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #9: Keep it simple

This drop zone says "mud room" with focus on transitioning from wet to warm. Hooks for coats and sweaters. Cubbies for boots and shoes. A small ledge at the top can hold keys.

The laundry sink across the way cleans everything up.

The size of this drop zone is 366x244.
