Front Yard Living. Elaborate outdoor rooms are showing up on the backside of the house. What about the front side? Binkley pushes front living areas in his latest commissions. His inspiration is Orlando’s very walkable Lake Eola neighborhood, where some homeowners have moved their living room, complete with sofas and reading lamps, onto the front porch. Plan 901-120. On homes without porches, Binkley may use pavers, bricks, and stones to inexpensively carve out social plots near the front door. They are a great place to watch pedestrians, drink an adult beverage, or read the newspaper.
Social Kitchen, There's room for three people to sit at the built-in table in plan 48-685, a great space-saving feature that means you don't have to devote more space to a dining room. A fireplace adds a cozy focal point in the living room, which steps out to the patio via sliding doors. Bedroom 1 also steps outside, so you can greet the day first thing. Vaulted ceilings in both bedrooms and the living room add a feeling of volume.
Keep your design style similar throughout the space. Maintain Design Continuity. It may sound obvious, but maintaining an aesthetic flow throughout an open-concept living space is paramount. Fundamental design features such as flooring and recessed lighting should be consistent. Color palettes in different spaces should complement one another. Add layers of texture and different hues for highlights and accents.
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.
