For example, you might try a gallery wall in the dining room. Hang an oversized chandelier in the living area, or use zebra wood for the base of your white kitchen island. Have fun and give each functional space a complementary personality.
It helps to have a large, open kitchen on the days when families and friends congregate in your home. If you plan on doing the cooking, you may need to set some boundaries, so you can pull bacon-wrapped shrimp out of the oven without guest interference. An island is an ideal way to create a wall between food prep and social spaces, as shown in Plan 928-10 by Visbeen Associates. Islands, which have become fixtures in new home design, also come in handy for putting out appetizers and drinks during a party.
Many home plans today dispense with a formal dining room in favor of a designated dining space within the great room, as shown here, also in Plan 497-46. That actually makes it easier to seat 10 or 12 people. You can add leaves to the table without running into walls. And there should be room for all-important serving tables.
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.
