Dark Door and Window Frames. One way to make windows look special, without spending a fortune on custom styles and sizes, is to darken the frame around the window. The treatment plays up the shape of the window, reinforcing the geometry of contemporary design. The look is also commonly associated with historic buildings, Spanish-style homes, and farmhouses, as shown in Plan 888-17. “It makes sense to do with big planes of thick glass,” says Ed Binkley. The interior spaces feel much larger.
Modern Plan 497-19, which is 43 feet wide and 74 feet deep, with a great room and separate living room on the ground floor and could work in a mid-block location. So what does building on spec in such a situation entail? Designer Monika Strunk interviewed one of Houseplans.com's customers to find out.
Make your decision based on the layout not the finishes. When choosing a floor plan ensure you are basing your decision on how the home flows and feels functional for your daily activities. Don’t get wowed by the upgraded floors, countertops and appliances in the model home, imagine the home in a “stripped down” state and form your opinion from there. A floor plan shouldn’t feel good because of the nice carpet that could go in the living room, it should feel right because the living room is a welcoming room off of the kitchen and foyer area for guests and family members.
Window Wall Turns Heads, It's hard to believe, but this unique home (plan 923-6) holds a modest 1,098 square feet with a slim (28'6") width. That means that this design would fit well in a narrow city lot, where land can be expensive. A sleeping loft provides room for visitors, while owners get a comfortable suite with a walk-in closet and private bath on the main floor. The eat-in kitchen offers plenty of room for a table to create a casual vibe.
