This home exemplifies modern family living in the DC Metro Area. Built by our friends over at Cleanside, this contemporary home contains 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths across 3 split-level stories. The façade’s sleek lines are accented by wood paneling and thin metal railings. Those lines make their way inside with a classy touch – the entry opens up with a timeless tray ceiling and light fixture, ultimately leading into the large family room/kitchen area. Crisp white cabinetry allows the kitchen’s fun backsplash and dark island to pop even more, and the light flooding into the rear of the home only continues to highlight the luxury finishes. Making your way up the light-filled stairwell takes you to the bedroom areas, one of which being a grand master suite with the bathroom (and closet!) to match. Making your way downstairs opens up to a large  finished basement, perfect for a more chill living and entertainment area.

Or put another way, “If I choose a Custom Builder, am I limited to only 1 style of home?” The answer is, thankfully, NO! A good builder or architect can design a home that fulfills your needs and in the style you like. Take, for example, these 2 custom homes built by Kingston Royce Homes.

 

These homes could not be more different on the outside. One is Neo-Traditional featuring a symmetrical facade on the main house, with a garage on the side. The wide front porch and accented gables harken back to the styles built in America for the last two centuries. On the other hand, a thoroughly modern house is shown in the other photo. The house lines are clean and unornamented, hallmarks of a deconstructed style of architecture.

A custom designer is conversant in several styles of architecture to create a home that functions well and meets the aesthetic desires of the client. And a good builder will craft a well made structure that will be just what you envision.

Let’s take a look at the interiors of these homes.

Front entrances can be formal with painted door and beveled sidelights and transoms, more traditional with a wooden door and clear sidelights or totally modern.

 

Rooms can be panelled with wainscoting, have an open space plan visually separated by columns or be completely open.   

 

Staircases can be elegant sweeps of fancy or float in space. 

Fireplaces that anchor a room can be modern black surrounds (as seen in one photo above), can have rustic river stone surrounds, or can be any combination.

 

 

And, of course, the kitchen area can be as large as desired with counter space galore, many storage options, pantries and butler areas. Your  imagination is the only limit.

 

At Moment Engineering + Design, we strive to bring to reality the home our clients see in their dreams.
