Homeowners love the idea of gathering around a wood fire pit, especially on a crisp evening. Architects are starting to give more thought to where the fire pit goes. It can become a focal point for several rooms inside the house. Plan 548-17 includes a particularly dramatic island fire pit.
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.
Homes currently under construction include Plan 915-7, a cozy 310-square foot cottage with an appealing front stoop and a front bump-out with several antique-style paned windows; Plan 915-10, a cute 356-square-foot, shingled bungalow with a neighborly front porch, an open feeling and lots of light; Plan 890-2, a 320-square-foot modern-style cottage with an inviting front porch, an L-shaped kitchenette and clerestory windows for added light; and Plan 915-3, a charming, classic American clapboard cottage with a welcoming front porch, plenty of tall windows and a fireplace.
Design Tips for Open Floor Plans. Define spaces with furniture, rugs and lighting. Use Furnishings and Lighting to Define Areas. Carve out separate functional spaces using furniture. For example, place a sofa backed with a console table outside the kitchen to delineate the start of the living room. Further define the living room by placing a rug in the center of that space. Lighting also helps to define different parts of a room. Anchor a dining table with a chandelier, or place a large ceiling fan in the center of the living space.
