Similarly, if you plan to encourage visitors to go outside, it helps if the door to the porch or deck is located in the family room or great room. It’s less likely to be used if it’s in the nook or bedroom. Parties are the one time when your entry hall is put to the test. It’s nice to have enough space to greet guests at the door. Ample front-hall closets used to be a given in new-home design. These days, you need to double-check to make sure they are big enough for guests to leave coats, gloves, hats, and maybe even boots. Having an office or guest room near the front door for leaving these items is a nice luxury, as illustrated by Gardner Plan 929-29, above.
Thinking Ahead to Holiday Parties. It would be a mistake to design an entire house around holiday meals and parties that only happen a few times a year. That said, plenty of new party-oriented homes are built each year for empty nesters in markets such as Palm Springs, Phoenix, and Dallas. The homes tend to have a big, central open space for gatherings that flows out onto a broad back porch, with a bar in the corner. That much open space may translate into wasted space for most families.
