One of the highlights of KBIS for me, every year, is attending these home tours, The New American Remodel and The New American Home.

Sponsored by IBS, The International Builders Show, which runs at the same time with KBIS (kitchen and bath show), these homes are truly masterful recreations. They go all out to show off unique products, new building techniques, and share the expertise of the professionals involved.

This year the remodel home was designed by Phil Keane and engineered by Element Building Company.

Lets take a look.

One of the aspects of these houses that seems to always work so well, is the flow of the indoor/outdoor living spaces.

Glass sliding doors rule in this part of the US and it really helps to make a seamless experience. The back patio and yard feel completely part of the interior living space.

The tall black tiled modern fireplace provides a dramatic focal point and uniting the upstairs open space with the first floor below.

Kitchen, Bar, Laundry

I took this photo, below, so you could see how the kitchen connects with the open living space. The black contemporary cabinets repeat the black monolithic fireplace and the introduction of wood at the hood and island make this space warm and relatable.

You could really have an amazing dinner party here, with the two dining areas positioned in this way.

I love this image the most of all I took here at this house. Its just a really nice mix of all the materials in this house in one pretty silhouette.

This bar was tucked away around the corner. The wine fridge units from SKS Appliances line the back wall.

Just beyond the wine bar area was the laundry room with my favorite appliance Id love to have someday, the LG Styler.

Master Suite

On the opposite side of the living room from the kitchen was the master suite.

I always love seeing the bathrooms in these homes, as I dont often get to design in more contemporary style like this.

Heres the master bath with a dramatic black chevron tiled wall and floating, lit mirrors. Check out the brass and black finish combination on the lighting. I saw that finish pop up repeatedly when I was at Dallas Market and Lightovation earlier this month.

The master bath tub was placed in the large shower, Im seeing this more and more often these days. (A good way to handle overspray with a wand used at the tub!)

The lit mirrors are reflecting in the glass shower enclosure, so its a little hard to read here.

Upstairs Rooms

View of the open stair with its steel structure exposed. The touch of wood at the railing helps warm all this up.

The space over the master suite was a covered patio/balcony, with more outdoor living.

Phantom screens covered the open areas, to make this space usable any time of year. The New American Remodel TNAR | #remodeling #remodel #balcony

The bathrooms for the upstairs bedrooms had tiled walls with floating mirrors, similar in concept to the master.

I really loved this idea of two faucets with a single extra wide sink. Perfect for a shared bath but with a vanity that might not be wide enough for two sinks.

Ive always thought pendants were a good idea for vanity lighting and these prove they work beautifully.

Heres one last look at the back patio area, with the pool, fountain and outdoor grill area beyond. I really like how built in space creates a U shape around the green.

Hmmmm, I wonder how much this home will go for this year? The one last year sold within one month of the show for $4.6 million!
