For starters, the size of the home will shrink. As the Boomers jettison stuff, weaning themselves from some of their accumulated furnishings and other material, they will find that a smaller house suits their needs just fine. And since these houses will likely be situated in warmer locales, generously sized outdoor living areas will be a must.
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.
Too many parties begin and end in the kitchen. One way to keep everyone from congregating there is to put food and drinks in other rooms. Bars, which are making a comeback in new home design, though they tend to be smaller today than they were 50 years ago, can really help in that respect.
To keep costs down on his kitchen he ordered cabinets and had them fully assembled prior to shipment. He says it costs more to hire someone to assemble the cabinets than to buy them already put together. Instead of buying a slab of granite, he purchased granite squares for $4/$5 per square foot. The kitchen counter ended up being roughly $200 in addition to the cost of labor to lay the tiles.
