Of course, no custom home is complete without a stunning kitchen and this Helena home is no exception. Unlike most traditional kitchens that feature single-color cabinets throughout, this gourmet kitchen is two-toned. The cabinets along the kitchen wall boast a warm medium shade of wood while the island sports a dark, cool-toned shade that creates a unique contrast to the other cabinets, as well as the gray granite countertops and white tile backsplash. Stainless steel appliances are built into the cabinetry for a seamless look and added practicality. To the side of the kitchen is a large butler’s pantry with glass cabinets for showcasing dinnerware and a connecting hallway with a pantry that leads conveniently to the formal dining room. A sunny breakfast nook is attached to the other side of the kitchen with access to the home’s rear covered deck.

Modern meets farmhouse throughout this home’s main level living area. Spilling out from the kitchen, the home’s living room boasts a modern, asymmetrical A-frame ceiling with light gray walls and crisp white ceilings. Two dark wooden beams run across the width of the room to add a rustic touch that compliments the wooden features and earthy tones in the stone fireplace. Centering the room from above is a silver abstract light fixture that brings the whole modern farmhouse look together. The living room boasts plenty of natural night with two large windows with white trim and double doors that lead to an open deck.

Having a retreat within the home is a must, so we made sure to make this homeowner’s suite as luxurious as possible. The bedroom itself is open and spacious with light gray paint, warm wood floors and windows surrounding the room. The star of the show, the spa-like bathroom, is connected to the owner’s suite through double doors. A large dual vanity with dark wood cabinets and gray granite countertops stretches the length of the room and features a huge three-panel window in between. Marble tile floors serve as the perfect accent to the bathroom space, so much that we even incorporated it into the glass walk-in shower! Toward the back of the owner’s bathroom, a huge walk-in closet offers an abundance of custom-made shelving and drawers for the homeowner’s clothing needs.

Kitchen countertops

When building a brand new, custom home, several decisions must be made throughout the process to ensure every detail matches the dream home you have in mind. Some decisions, like how many bedrooms and bathrooms you want, come easily while others require a little more thought and research. For example, the average homeowner might not know exactly what type of counters and countertop material they want. This is an important decision to make, especially for any family that spends a lot of time in the kitchen, but how many choices are out there?
