2017 International Builders’ Show
TruStile partnered with the National Association of Home Builders and designer Phil Kean to transform a classic 80’s style home into a Caribbean-inspired contemporary home for The New American Remodeled Home at the 2017 International Builders’ Show.
This was only the second time in the history of the International Builders’ Show that a remodeled showcase home was displayed. The remodeled home is located just down the road from The New American Home, which TruStile also sponsored. Per designer Phil Kean, this project ”shows how to take a home that›s 30 to 40 years old, respect what was there, but make it fresh and current.“
“The home was gutted to the studs, reconfigured throughout and given an all-new look with contemporary, island-style architecture.” TruStile was proud to sponsor a unique interior door package, including Tiered Mouldings to complement stepped millwork details featured throughout the home, to help the team achieve their goals. The remodel exemplifies how an existing home “can be significantly improved in design, livability and energy efficiency when using today’s building techniques, products and standards.”
Kean’s team and TruStile chose a mix of paint-grade and stain-grade TS3000 doors to fit each opening in the 4,500-square foot home. TruStile’s versatile product line made it easy to use the same door style in different applications. Pocket doors, a house-to-garage door, and even a matching elevator door blend together seamlessly so that the remodel doesn’t have to sacrifice style for functionality.
Kean’s team used a mix of glass and tiered mouldings to differentiate TS3000 profiles throughout the home. The Linea Tiered Moulding offers a crisp stepped profile that redefines a traditional panel door. White Lami glass with a One Step profile creates a clean, modern aesthetic giving the home an updated yet classic look.
When doors are designed into a project instead of treated as an after-thought, the difference is profound. TruStile makes every door to order and can configure a unique design option for every opening. The New American Remodeled Home had interesting layers built in throughout the project, and TruStile doors tied them together in each room. While other manufacturers are limited by what they have in stock, TruStile can complement all architectural styles as well as provide design and material options to achieve any desired look.
