Let our pros help you with designing your Marco Island home…room by room.

A Spacious Kitchen

You may find yourself entertaining more often when you live on the Island, and no other space is as popular as the kitchen, so be sure to make it roomy. Not only will you need ample space to prepare delightful cuisine, your guests will most likely meander around, sampling the various ingredients and indulging in exciting conversation. An oversized island, or even a double island is recommended for this space, as well as a dedicated pantry and butler’s pantry if you have the space. This way, your guests can co-mingle easily without getting in the way of the food prep.

An Open Living Area

If you’re looking to build or buy on the Island, you’re most likely wanting to take advantage of some of the exquisite views available. The best way to set an ambiance in your living space is by accentuating these views with wide open spaces and walls of windows. Keep this space light, bright and airy, so that your guests will be in awe and you’ll be able to enjoy Southwest Florida’s finest backdrop each and every day.

A Luxurious Master Suite

Waking up to chirping birds and the calming waves of the Gulf can’t be beat, and if you’re looking to maximize your Marco Island home, a luxurious master suite is a must. Be sure to include direct access to your outdoor living area through a set of glass sliders, so you can take in the views, and don’t forget to make your master bath a relaxing oasis for you to unwind in everyday. A drop-in tub, open shower and sophisticated materials create a spa-like atmosphere in this space.

An Unforgettable Outdoor Living Space

You’ll most likely be spending a lot of time savoring the temperate Marco Island climate, which means your outdoor living area should be dressed to impress. Incorporate a comfortable seating area, infinity edge pool, spa and outdoor kitchen to really make the space beautiful and functional. When you live on Marco Island, you’ll want to capture the famous sunsets night after night, and there’s no better way to do this than from your private outdoor living space.
