Custom Home Kitchen Designs by Stanton Homes

Designing a kitchen is tough.  Each family is unique.  Is your style country, casual, contemporary, or something in between?

Here are some of our Top 3 Kitchen Makeovers - we'll show you start-to-finish what our interior designer did to make each kitchen work perfectly, and what you'll want to consider before you get started. 

1. The Lowery - Design/Build Custom Kitchen with Hand Rendering

The homeowners were yearning for a gourmet kitchen that would be infused with deep, rich color tones and a sophisticated style.

They were drawn to deeper colors as a radical departure from their Florida home which had incorporated a lot of white.

The granite is a Santa Fe Brown. The cabinets are a Maple Espresso finish.

Several areas of this kitchen were extended, to accommodate  additional cabinet storage space for the homeowners' multiple dish sets.

The tile backsplash originally ended at the bottom of the cabinets, and was later extended to the top of the stainless steel chimney.

42 inch cabinets with upper crown molding are standard in your Stanton Home.
