Screen Porch Design #6 - The spaciousness of this huge screen porch is even more expansive with the high ceiling that follows the roofline. A deck beyond carries outdoor living around the side of the home as well as down into the property.

Screen Porch Design #11 - The grandeur of this custom designed screen room with extensive upper decking and a massive ceiling fan steeps this ultimate screen porch with the luxury of a Grand Lodge.

This is another great example of wrapping the Great Room and Breakfast Room in walls of windows within view of the Kitchen. The natural light that streams in through all this glass makes all of the main floor gathering areas brighter.

#5 Wall of Windows - Master Suite Retreat

RemingtonMasterwallofwindows

This Master Suite Retreat takes advantage of the views, with walls of windows across the Bedroom Suite and Sitting Room. The wall color has a natural tone, following the theme of reflecting nature. Hardwoods are solid oak flooring.

AvonstoneManorwallofwindows

This all-brick custom home has a wall of windows across the tower rotunda in the back. As you can see in this photo, there are a lot of other big windows that further expand the classic elegance of this estate home.

#7 Wall of Windows - Library

BarcelonaDualMasterLibrarywallofwindows

These bookcases are built within a wall of windows, so that this Library can be filled with light and wonder. What a great way to enjoy a good book - with wide open views on all sides.

#8 Wall of Windows - To the Rooftop

SmokeyRidgeDeck-1

These Walls of Windows take advantage of spectacular views. The Great Room is filled to the ceiling with windows, which keeps on going across the entire back of the home with more picture windows and glass doors. Natural light, and all the sights.

#9 Wall of Windows - Transoms

The Wall of Windows in this Great Room rise to the 11 foot ceiling with transoms. Adjacent, the wall of windows in the Breakfast Room rise to a 9 foot ceiling. Stonework denotes a formal area. Changing shades of paint provide room definition.

What could be more fitting for a Wall of Windows than a Sun Room? Soak it up, with windows all the way around the entire room, including glass French Doors leading into the Sun Room from the Great Room. Top it off with these sunny yellow walls!

#13 Wall of Windows - Two Stories and a Curve

CotswoldGreatRoomCwallofwindows

This curved Wall of Windows is stunning. Subtle rounding of the wall adds elegance. The massive amount of glass bathes all the main gathering areas of the home with natural light. Sculpted columns nearby are exclamation points for this work of art.

#14 Wall of Windows - on an Accent Wall

CynthiaRidgewallofwindows

This simple approach to a Wall of Windows with transoms over the top of picture windows is enhanced with the ribbon of color in its accent wall, which draws the eye around the corner as the sky blue wall wraps around more big windows.   

#15 Wall of Windows - Estate Home

This custom estate home has so many walls of windows it required commercial framing. The intent was views from every portion of the home, and an endless array of natural lighting. All goals are a success.

The subtle curve in this Wall of Windows tucked into an alcove adds interest to the Great Room. A touch of color to the walls pulls the the rest of the room together. Custom cutouts allow for future cabinetry, at the homeowner's request.

Another example of a curved Wall of Windows. Everyone enjoying the outdoor setting on the deck can feel connected to what's happening inside, with windows setting the tone for indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Great views don't just happen in one direction.

#18 Wall of Windows - 2 Story Cedar Wrapped Picture Windows

DinsmoreLivingwallofwindows

These huge picture windows make a bold statement - 2 stories high. Cedar framing is replicated on the fireplace and Kitchen, as part of the custom designed theme for this home. Stacked rock surround and solid oak hardwood flooring complete the room.

#19 Wall of Windows - Capturing Light through the Screen Porch

GlenviewB4GreatRoomwallofwindows

When Great Room windows have a Screen Porch on the other side, an 11 foot ceiling allows for more light to shine through, with transoms, like this Wall of Windows framing the fireplace. It also expands the open floor plan feel.

#20 Wall of Windows - Reflecting the Roofline

TreehouseExteriorRearwallofwindows

The massive Wall of Windows on this new home in NC emphasizes the roofline, with custom windows shaped to follow the architectural design. The walk-out basement beneath also emphasizes the appeal of natural light.

#22 Wall of Windows - Master Suite

The Wall of Windows in this Master Suite provides a light and airy feel to the room. The double trey ceiling above extends that openness. Glass French Doors to the private deck and Screen Porch beyond add even more access to outdoors. 

#22 Wall of Windows - Doors and Windows Everywhere

HorseCountry-EstateIsland

The Wall of Windows in the eating area beyond this Kitchen are brighter with transoms. And take a look at how glass doors and picture windows are heightened by curved windows above, for a formal look to the transition of indoor/outdoor living.

The two Kitchen Islands are integral to the efficient Kitchen layout in the photo above, which was custom designed to be both aesthetic and functional. 

 

#5 Big Kitchen Island - Ultimate Open Space

This custom designed Kitchen takes open space seriously, with a Big Kitchen Island artistically angled for more flow-through. Maple hardwood flooring and maple finish wood cabinetry set a light tone, topped by dark granite with light marbling. 

Bar style seating at the back, cabinetry storage shelving on the front, and a full size sink set across from the microwave complete the layout.

 

#6 Big Kitchen Island - Old World Influence

This Big Kitchen Island designed with rich elegance including ornate legs and a custom shaped quartz countertop compliments this luxury Kitchen with its furniture finished premium cabinetry of wood and glass, stacked stone walls, mosaic tile over the range, beams overhead, and a color and texture blend throughout that makes this Kitchen Island stand out even more.

A seating bar and full size sink top the deep storage cabinets accessed from the front.

 

#7 Big Kitchen Island - Stretch Limo

A Big Kitchen Island can be tucked into a narrow kitchen by extending the length and tightening the width, for a practical result filled with purpose. This f10' long countertop is unencumbered with sinks or appliances, making it a very usable surface.

A short peninsula and built in shelving at the edges of the Kitchen add even more storage. The light color tones chosen from tile backsplash to countertop and cabinetry are set against a walnut stained floor.

 

#8 Big Kitchen Island - Classic Provincial

The formal intent of this Estate Home Kitchen is evident from the furniture-style pantry to the wood-look tile floor and the Big Kitchen Island. The blend of dark and light add classic appeal, from the listello accents in the tile backsplash to the stain and quartz choices.

Veggie sink at the end across from the full sink, stove and wall ovens gives triangular work space. Cabinetry all around provides a combination of drawers and cupboards.

This classic black and white Kitchen has a Big Kitchen Island as the centerpiece, with a wide open surface that sets the tone of the open floor plan. A seating bar at the back provides even more flexibility for this effective approach to big gatherings.

#10 Big Kitchen Island - Strikingly Beautiful

GlenviewB7KitchenIsland
