People who entertain regularly may want a separate prep kitchen for the dirty work of cooking. These rooms, equipped with ovens, ranges, refrigeration, storage, and maybe even warming ovens, are great for caterers. They free the kitchen to be used as a party hangout. A second oven, even if it’s in the kitchen, comes in mighty handy on the days when you cook a roast or turkey for a large number of guests.
Mid-Century Modern, Love that Palm Springs look? This design, plan 489-1, recreates the same effortless, outdoor-centric feeling of those classic homes. But unlike a home from the 50's or 60's, this floor plan feels totally up-to-date. Sliding doors lead from the great room to the patio for seamless indoor-outdoor living. A large, curving island provides a main spot for enjoying drinks and appetizers with friends. For dinner, head a few steps over to the open dining room. The master suite includes a large shower and spa tub with a view.
Don’t assume the sizes of rooms on a floor plan are adequate: How many times have you read the dimensions of a room on a floor plan and then realized your existing furniture doesn’t fit like you thought into the finished room? Measure your existing furniture before deciding on final sizes for a home. If you’re not sure how large of room you need, measure your existing furniture, tables and walking area to determine how much space you REALLY need in your next floor plan. Add on additional area if you’re trying to add space to your next home.
Losing wall space for your photos and artwork is another good reason to keep a wall intact. Fewer walls also means fewer electrical outlets; concealing wires in a large, open space can be tricky. Finally, if you hate seeing a mess, open-concept living might not be for you, unless you live alone or have roommates who are also neat freaks. Toy chaos or messy kitchens are easily seen in open floor plans. Staying tidy, or at least having proper storage, is key for open-concept living.
