Wall, Floor Tiles Steal the Show in This Luxury Model Home

The Home Combines Classic Details with Fashion-Forward Design

 

Jackie Graniczny, director of design for Sublime Homes, explains how her company built this model home with classical and modern elements such as textured wall tiles and high-gloss floating vanities.

A modified version of their Elizabeth” plan, the model in Saint John's is a great representation of Sublime Home’s design style because the company had complete artistic control over the design. In order to increase storage and maximize its Carrera Quartz counter space, Graniczny’s team expanded the kitchen walls from the original “Elizabeth” plan to create a “U-shaped” countertop. Other standout details from the kitchen include an exposed-hose articulating single-handle kitchen sink and a hexagonal-shaped marble backsplash.

Even the butler’s pantry gets a quality treatment: the design team used navy-blue stain on floating oak shelves to accent the watercolor-inspired floral tiles.

“Everyone who came to the model loved that,” Graniczny says of the floral tiles. “My electrician went home and showed his wife. They got that on their backsplash.”

The master bathroom is detail-packed. With its hexagonal shape and white metallic finish, the 3D wall behind the freestanding tub commands a strong presence in the master bath. Hints of grey pull the room together, from the tub apron to the large-format, faux marble porcelain tile floor--which Graniczny says resists chipping and does not need a sealant like real marble does. White, on the other hand, takes center stage in the set of high-gloss floating cabinetry, while black on the crown molding and interior doors acts as an accent.

By combining luxury and cost-saving techniques, Graniczny says they are able to create custom homes that check off a client’s wish list while fitting in the budget. In this model in particular, they installed a gas fireplaces to save cost and space in a living room. Another affordable design choice is the black-painted molding, which Graniczny described as a “cost-saving but bold” detail that adds a pop to the room

“One thing I try to do with the models is to get people talking. When we have open houses, I want people to remember our house,” Graniczny says of the fashion-forward choices like the black molding and hexagonal tiles. “At the end of the day, they’re going to remember Sublime’s houses because of their details.”
