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.
