Stepping inside so many recently completed Carbine & Associates new homes has us excited about new home building ideas.  From spot on, black and white kitchens and clever pantries to shiplap wrapped banquettes and gorgeous choices in lighting and faucets, here are some of the latest inspiring ideas.

Six New Home Building Ideas  

#1 Private Courtyard Entrance

 The Tennessean profiled our Green Hills home on Lone Oak and, soon, we will have two new homes completed and available on the pretty, tree-lined street. Conveniently located, the home’s two-car garage creates a private entry and courtyard, with a fire bowl.  Click here for the new home listing.

Prioritizing the need for a two-car garage, the Carbine team moved it to the front of the property, created a private courtyard entry while still offering home owners a pretty back yard.

Future homeowners will have the option to customize the private courtyard adjacent to the entrance of the Green Hills home with pillow, greenery and enjoy cool evenings with a charming fire bowl.

#2 Shiplap Wrapped Banquette

 Our design partners, J & K Design Studio, created a beautiful interior palette for this Lone Oak home and the others highlighted below. This gorgeous banquette, dressed Domino magazine chic, has fresh, shiplap which continues to the generous staircase.

#3 Floral Accented Pantry

Revisiting the pantry from our 2018 building trends blog, the Tennessean also loved the butcher block counter and smart combo of open shelving and closed cabinetry.

#4 Black And White Kitchen

What’s black and white and stunning all over?!  This kitchen in our Wedgewood-Houston home (1718 Stewart) highlighted in our National Tile Day blog for this gorgeous Mantra Black backsplash.  Chrome faucets and the Honstone Angora quartz counter (Smokey Mountain Tops) are the perfect finishing touches to the sharp dressed kitchen.

#5 Lighting And Faucets

There is so much personality in lighting these days and great varieties of faucets. The 2017 House for Hope Designer Show House was a good example of creative lighting. Carbine has continued to embrace creative light fixtures bringing more interest and flair to pretty homes being built in Williamson County and Nashville.

Carbine’s Federal style Water Leaf home in Franklin, TN has a soaring living room ceiling with a creative light fixture.

There is no standard, must-use choice for faucets these days. Mixing great finishes with creative lighting and tile is creating beautiful home vignettes for Carbine new homes.

#6 Pretty Tile Choices

 In our National Tile Day wrap up, we provided a great montage of beautiful styles.  Tile is the new frontier of creative home design.  From natural stone to ceramic, homeowners have so many choices when creating fun spaces.
