The best parties are the ones where you can meet new people in informal social settings, engage in intimate conversations with friends, graze for food and drink, and maybe even watch a game. Achieving that level of enjoyment requires public rooms with a mix of settings – for standing and talking, sitting and conversing, eating, and television watching. It’s fun to think about how moving some furniture on party days might accommodate these functions.
But now merchant builders are using shiplap siding in family rooms, stucco to frame showers in Mediterranean designs, and concrete block to form the interior walls of contemporary homes. Plan 888-3 uses board and batten siding on the walls of the second living room to reinforce an indoor-outdoor feeling. In so-called transitional designs – traditional designs executed with contemporary materials – corrugated metal siding, wire mesh railings, and concrete walls may show up inside the home.
Natural Wood Beams. Using wood beams to decorate a high ceiling is a given in luxury housing. But it’s become common in upscale production homes, too, particularly when the roof of the great room gets above 12 feet. Dark wood beams not only provide a pleasing contrast to the smooth white walls but serve as a focal point, as in Plan 935-6.
The layout for Green Living Plan 497-46 shows a wet bar between the kitchen and the dining room, which is a very practical solution. The perfect spot for a bar may be in a corner of the great room that would be tough to furnish. On the occasions when you expect people to sit down for a meal, it really helps if you can expand the dining room table.
