Luxury is in the Details
Luxury is in the Details

A luxury home isn’t merely a matter of size. The size of a home represents its potential. What a builder does with that space is what distinguishes a lovely home from an outstanding one. Luxury is in the details. Baker Residential designed the new construction homes for Providence at Yates Pond to reflect this distinction.
We create each floor plan for the way people live. Where does a family come together? Where do they want private spaces? How big should these spaces be to comfortably accommodate the activity? When we determine the placement and flow, we ask ourselves, “How do we distinguish each space?”
Starting from the top, how about a coffered ceiling? We create a criss-crossed pattern of beams that form a series of sunken panels. This architectural detail adds dimension to a surface that is largely ignored in many homes. Once found only in ornate buildings, today’s coffered ceilings add a nice distinction to a room with a high ceiling.
A tray ceiling works well in many areas of your home—from the foyer to the great room to the bedrooms. This ceiling design incorporates a recessed area—usually a rectangle or square. It can be accented with crown molding, and provides a frame-like effect to the room, particularly accentuating the ceiling light fixture.
Wainscoting adds architectural style to walls. Layered wood panels infuse elegance to a room, whether you paint them the same color as the walls or a contrasting shade. Wainscoting is popular in a formal dining room, study, home office, bedroom, and foyer. Of course, you can use this accent anywhere that you want this type of textural accent.
The luxury of a butler’s pantry allows you to more easily serve meals in your formal dining room. This walk-through from your kitchen to the dining room features cabinets where you can store dishes, silverware, table linens, and serving pieces. There might be a wine rack and even a sink. The countertop in the butler’s pantry serves as a staging area.
Crown molding can add a regal touch to a ceiling or doorway. Using more decorative or wider trim can enhance the look.
The addition of built-in cabinets and shelves combines furniture with architecture. Built-ins blend well with a room, and allow a quality space for display and storage. You could add a buffet in your dining area, on each side of your fireplace, hallway, or mudroom. A built-in hall bench provides a valuable organizational piece that’s also stylish.
The entrance to your home is the first impression. A clerestory foyer presents a stunning welcome that immediately says “luxury”. Natural light brightens the two-story foyer from the window over the entry.
