Keep your views unobstructed. Keep the Space Open. Allowing open views from each area to the next is key in open floor plans. Be stylish but strategic with placement; don’t clutter the sight lines with tall bookcases or inappropriately large furniture or accessories. For example, an arch lamp over the sofa that blocks the view of the kitchen wouldn’t allow for a free flow of conversation. Also be sure to keep windows and natural light unobstructed.
Five Houseplans.com designs were chosen for phase one of the project (which includes 25 tiny homes for single people and couples), and each design is completely different. The reason is simple. Most of the residents are coming from institutions like homeless shelters or senior apartments where every living space is the same, says the Rev. Faith Fowler, the CCSS’s executive director. We wanted to instill pride in the people that no one else has a house like theirs.
Imagine if you could walk the best model homes throughout the country, hunting for the latest design ideas for your new home? The next best thing -- for those of us who don’t have a six-figure travel budget -- may be to take a virtual tour through winning projects in industry design competitions. Even better is to take that guided tour from one of the country’s leading architects. Ed Binkley, a Tampa-based principal with BSB Design, recently mined the galleries for the latest trends. Here’s what he found.
Tiny Home with a View, This striking design, plan 479-12, takes splendid advantage of a scenic lot. Walls of windows let light stream inside to illuminate the open living spaces. On the main level, the kitchen invites everyone to hang out at the island, where there's seating for four (and the range also lives here, letting you saute dinner without turning your back on guests). The upper level lets you store tons of books in a row of bookshelves. Grab a volume and hop into your big bed.
