Spec Home Design and Build in Beverly Hills, Florida

When Gulf Tile and Cabinetry was invited to work with Citrus Builders to recommend and install plank tiles on a home, they put their builder representative Lisa Darby on the job to work with the designer, Lauri Capozza of Smart Interiors. Citrus Builders was building this home as a spec home and wanted to keep the design classic but eye-catching and use materials that would be perfect for the traditional Florida lifestyle.

Home Floors

They decided to use Gulf Tile & Cabinetry’s Timberline Walnut 6 x 24 porcelain wood plank tiles throughout most of the home’s floors in the kitchen and family room because it gives the rich look and feel of wood but does not experience water damage. In addition, since the home was designed for a family, the porcelain tiles hold up to foot traffic, pets, and rough play. The warmth of this flooring blends with the classic design and feel of the home and will withstand the test of time. Silver Travertine Ledger Stone was used on the walls between the dining room and entry niches. In the kitchen, Navajo Dune mosaic glass tiles manufactured by Glazzio were installed as the backsplash.

Master Bathroom

For the master bathroom, Lisa and the builders selected 12 x 24 Marble Folio Statuary Polished porcelain tiles by Wonder Porcelain for the walls and 24 x 24 Marble Folio Statuary Matte tiles of the same style for the floor. This gave the room the feel of luxury without the need to seal and maintain actual marble.

Citrus Builders was thrilled with the final results and we hope that the eventual homeowners will be wowed by Laurie and Lisa’s great style design.
