Twin Homes, Different Finishes

Tanin Group for our latest duplex had the unique challenge of completing a twin home with vastly different finishes based on the owners. While Unit A opted for our standard finishes, Unit B had its own design style and wanted to bring in its own. The results on both are stunning, scroll to see the differences!


The changes begin on the facade. Tanin Group always likes to create unique facades for our homes in order to give each its own character and avoid the mirrored look many duplexes in the area have. On this, both owners opted for an upgraded stone facade and each picked a different shade that both complemented one another.


Each side had a distinct style in the kithen. Unit A had our standard medium brown, with Calacatta Quartz Countertop while Unit B opted for a lighter wood grain turned horizontally with a gray quartz countertop. They also opted for a vent hood while Unit A requested a double oven with a microwave hood. The pendants also reflected the overall style of the homes, while Unit A’s is light and delicate, Unit B’s is more industrious, going with the slim handles and farmhouse sink.

Master Bath

The style differences continued in the bathroom. Unit A’s bathroom featured more classic elegance with the Calacatta Marble look on the floor and countertop, while Unit B’s more industrious, minimal look came through in the floating shelf sink and black finishes. they had similar shower tile styles with textured porcelain.

Other Baths

Unit A’s other baths featured a hexagonal shower floor and custom cabinet system with calacatta quartz countertops while Unit B’s featured floating, minimal vanities with textured wall tile.

Both homes have similar pool areas, rooftops, and other spaces that will reflect their individual styles as they furnish and decorate. We like to make our homes have a unique style, while still being a blank slate for homeowners to make their own, and we were happy to be challenged on this specific project.
