There’s no question that Montana is a special place to live. With its natural, rugged beauty, there’s really no place else like the Big Sky state. That’s why creating a home that emulates this beauty is a no-brainer for most Montanans.
The best way to do this is to let your materials do the work for you. Choosing natural materials helps the home fit into the surrounding landscape and creates seamless indoor and outdoor transitions that add an element of simplicity to your home. Here are some stunning examples of ways to make your custom Montana home fit in – in the best way possible.
Stone and Timber Kitchens
Nothing says Montana like a mix of natural materials such as stone and timber. Beautiful rough-cut timbers and oversized stone accents bring an element of rusticity and old-fashioned charm to this otherwise modern kitchen. Clean white cabinets, granite countertops, and small tile backsplash add elegant features that help tie everything together. This gorgeous mountain modern kitchen is a prime example of how to utilize rough-cut timbers to create clean, modern line breaks that stand out.
Clean Walls with Lofted Tongue and Groove Ceilings
When creating a home that embraces the Montana look and way of life, drawing the eye toward the natural elements is key. Clean white walls and a lofted tongue and groove ceiling help draw the attention up and out in this stunning sitting room. The unique timber frame design of this home does wonders to create intrigue in an otherwise open space. Timber accents add warmth and character, creating a cozy atmosphere to watch those cold winter days pass by.
Natural Wood Flooring With Area Rugs
Wood flooring is a timeless addition to any home. Circle sawn wood flooring, in particular, is a statement piece that works effortlessly to bring that unique Montana look to your home. The authentic circle sawn pattern on this natural wood flooring adds dimension to your floors, making it a standout piece in even the most spectacular homes. Add in an area rug to incorporate different textures and complement your decor.
Outdoor Entertainment Spaces
No Montana home is complete without an outdoor entertainment space. This home utilizes multiple trusses with circle sawn, Douglas fir timbers to create a comfortable outdoor living space tucked away from the elements. With ambient lighting above the picnic table and Adirondack chairs tucked around the fire pit, this patio feels more like a relaxing cabin getaway than your average home. Natural wood siding and soffit work to complete this look, making for a perfect spot to enjoy those fleeting summer nights.
