The Chef's Kitchen in the Glenview has lots of premium cabinetry storage, with soft close deep drawers and spacious cupboards, gorgeous granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances including a gas cooktop with hood, wall oven and microwave. This Kitchen is filled with light, including pendants over the Island, can lights, and natural light from a window over the sink as well as the wall of windows adjacent. 

Wood shelving (no wire shelving) throughout the home

The drop zone has plenty of hooks for hanging, big bins for storing stuff, and a convenient location just inside the garage door and across from the laundry room. There's even space to sit, to take off your shoes.

All shelving in the entire Glenview home by Stanton Homes is wood, not wire.

Walk-in Pantry with Bonus Tuck-away Shelves and Barn Door

Sighs of happiness will be what you feel when you see this walk-in pantry. Massive amounts of shelving for everything you want to store - plus bonus shelves for spices, soups, or anything else you want to tuck away - made possible by the barn door that slides outside - leaving extra space to take advantage of for all the small stuff.

Master Suite Bathroom Designed for Relaxation

 The Master Suite Bathroom in the Glenview is set in gorgeous tile - floor, tub surround, shower... all chosen to blend beautifully in color and texture. The big shower has a built in bench - with the entire shower tiled and a light over the top. The rectangle soaking garden tub has a big picture window over the top with soothing views of the wooded acreage out back. The toilet room is private.

Now that's a master suite closet!

 The Master Suite Closet has wood shelving and rods designed for easy access to lots of space for hanging and storing. Extra storage cubbies are built in at the back of the closet. The window provides extra light. Solid oak hardwood flooring makes cleanup easy.

Spectacular views from the treehouse-style Screen Porch

A massive screen porch conveniently located next to the Great Room and Breakfast Room has screened walls on all exterior walls as well as screening under the floor boards, to contribute to the serenity of this spacious indoor/outdoor living space. There's a fan in the beadboard ceiling, and an incredible view of the 2.3 acre wooded lot.

#1 Fireplace Design - Modern Classic

This new home fireplace has a stone to the ceiling surround with a slightly raised hearth. It's entertainment focus is emphasized by its proximity to outdoor living as well as an entire wall of cabinetry with transom windows above with natural light in tandem with the double doors with picture windows on either side with bold arched picture windows over the top. The stone selected for the fireplace surround blends with the stain choice for the solid oak hardwood floor.

 

#2 Fireplace Design - Fire and Light

This modern/contemporary fireplace in NC is spotlighted by natural light from an entire wall of windows as well as cabinetry on either side highlighted by extensive trimwork. Multi piece crown molding ties the artistic custom designed centerpiece together. The open appeal of the white, black and grey theme blends with the light stain choice in the hardwood floor.

 

#3 Fireplace Design - Stacked Rock

This stone surround fireplace with raised seating hearth emphasizes the two story ceiling in this great room. Big windows on either side of the fireplace are replicated above, to make the room feel bigger. A french door to the left and additional windows around the corner add to natural light. The stone colors selected for the fireplace surround are reflected in the wood-look tile in the eating area and kitchen on the left side, adding conformity to this custom designed new home interior.

 

#4 Fireplace Design - Hand Crafted

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.

 

#5 Fireplace Design - Entertainment Archway

This fireplace with stone surround and hearth for seating is tied to the entire gathering area in this NC custom home via a custom designed and hand crafted archway between the great room and the kitchen as well as an additional stone wall in the kitchen. Tile flooring expands the entire length to lighten up this Craftsman home with both contemporary and southwestern tones.

 

#6 Fireplace Design - Modern Country

This NC new home fireplace has a surround of gray tile and white grout with a custom made mantle and shiplap backdrop. It's a natural segue to gray walls and white cabinetry shelving that dominate the great room.

9 Trending Kitchen Islands for 2019

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.

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.

The Judson, a wheelchair accessible home, is a great example of just how big and open a shower can be in a custom home. We're getting requests for this kind of wide open access to the shower for homes that do not require any special accommodations.

Where do Trey Ceilings go? While Trey Ceilings can be placed in nearly any room of the home - from the kitchen to the great room - they are most often built into master bedrooms and formal dining rooms.

What are some of the most popular Trey Ceiling styles? Step, shallow step, vaulted, octagonal, angled, and single box are trey ceiling designs that are trending the most for 2019.

Deep browns contrast against the white painted wainscoting in this formal dining room - complete with an octagonal trey ceiling.

Double trey ceilings are more popular in the master bedroom. These trey ceilings carry wall colors into the ceiling, to emphasize the layering look.

This owner's suite trey ceiling emphasizes the grand dimension of this spacious personal space. The choice to bathe the room in earth tones and white creates a beautiful color palette for this setting.

The layers in this trey ceiling are taller, emphasizing the raised height ceiling. Although most ceilings are still white, treys with color are becoming more popular in Chatham County new homes.

The deep trey design selected for this master suite creates a crowning effect of sophistication. Grey walls reflect the trending color trend, while directing the eye upward.

This master bedroom white trey ceiling has two layers with crown molding. The sitting area tucked in at the back of the room has its own little niche, behind the trey.

Here's another approach to a multi-layer trey ceiling, in this master suite that's bold with personality. Bright yellow and white layers make the room sunny and bright, while emphasizing the design's intricate tiers.

Flirtatious romance can be created with multiple layers in the trey ceiling, like this master suite retreat. Your color palette choice in a custom home can follow your imagination - whimsy, daring or conventional.

The classic look to this formal dining room trey ceiling reflects the elegance of the room, with a welcoming openness and simplistic design that compliments expansive windows, archways, chair rail, and hardwoods.

Frame your formal dining room with a vertical trey ceiling like this to provide balance with your favorite wainscoting design. Color adds dimension, while white adds formality.

Create character in your kitchen, with a trey ceiling that goes over the space where you spend most of your time. This artistic chef's kitchen is topped with a huge trey basic box with another layer of dimension.

Keep it simple, with a basic trey ceiling and a ribbon of color. This effect is popular with more casual lifestyles, where rigid formality feels out of place.

This angled trey ceiling makes a formal dining statement. Serving as a tie-together with incredibly detailed trim work, strategically placed windows and an art niche, this trey says custom home.

Give your dining room designer appeal, with a multi-layered octagonal trey ceiling accented by bands of color.

When the emphasis is on the archways, you might want to opt for an all-white octagonal trey in the formal dining room. This provides formality, while keeping most of the attention elsewhere.

Simple and sweet, this master suite with trey ceiling has a soft, warm feeling, with a sitting alcove that beckons just beyond.

When you enter your dining room through the wide swoop of this dramatic arched entry, the bold red and white of this traditional dining room reflects confidence. When there's that much going on in the rest of the room, use your trey ceiling as a punctuation mark, like this.
