Brace yourself: Sublime Homes’ latest model is bold and a bit funky

It’s true what they say—if Sublime Homes builds it, you’ll love it. As one of Northwest Indiana’s leading home builders, Sublime Homes is known for its signature homes, designs, and features. 

Their newest model home in St. John is a testament to that unmatched quality. This Elizabeth model floorplan is more than 3,000 square feet curated with the latest trends in home design. 

“We always want that curb appeal with our model homes and to make it a show stopper,” said Jackie Graniczny, design director at Sublime Homes. “For the outside, I wanted to go for a bold color to showcase the painted brick, and navy blue is a classic, bold color. You can’t go wrong with it—it’s timeless.”

Inside the house, this model features a modified main floor plan that includes a redesigned mudroom area with both a customized walk-in closet and pantry by California Closets. The open concept kitchen flows effortlessly into the heart of the house: the kitchen.

“For the inside, I wanted to keep it kind of subtle, and that’s where you’re going to see the marble and gray colors,” Graniczny said. “Since building in Indiana for such a long time now, I really learned this market and I know how far I can take it. I can get a little bit more fashion-forward than the market calls for. I had to get a little funky; the black trim is my funkiness.” 

During the design process, Graniczny used feedback from clients to change up some design aspects, such as expanding the kitchen and surrounding rooms. 

“None of our homes are built with the same layout,” said Amy Alexander, sales and marketing director for Sublime Homes. “In the butler’s pantry, there is some really cool and unique tile. It’s a floral-like pattern and is unexpected when paired with the floating shelves.”

“That tile is gorgeous,” Graniczny added. “When I saw that in the showroom, it looked like artwork to me. There’s blue in it, and I wanted to bring the blue inside, as well as with the tile.”

Upstairs features a beautiful master bedroom suite, three additional bedrooms, a laundry room, a bathroom, and, to top it off, 200 square feet of loft space. Off the master bedroom is a luxurious master en-suite with a free-standing bathtub sitting in front of a geometric designed focal wall. The suite doesn’t stop there—on the other side of the wall is a spacious shower for two and a walk-in closet. 

“I’m a huge fan of the master bathroom,” Graniczny said. “I love the geometric iridescent wall and the bathtub with the charcoal apron that plays into the black accents around the case opening, door opening, and crown molding.”

Aside from the breathtaking design of the house, Sublime Homes built this house with some of the latest tech gadgets. The home builder strives for energy-efficiency, which is why NEST Thermostats are incorporated into every home. 

“We’re seeing more of our clients wanting more ‘smart home’ options,” Alexander said. “That’s why we’ve added the NEST Thermostat and a built-in speaker system in the house. To be able to have music play and control your home from a smartphone adds to the experience.” 

“Also, when we have models, I like to get people talking,” Graniczny said. “When I’m designing, I want it to be powerful. I want people walking out of here remembering this house.”

The model includes a three-car garage, a basement, a fully-landscaped yard with irrigation system, and a concrete patio. This home, among all other Sublime homes, sit a level above the rest.
