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.
Dark Door and Window Frames. One way to make windows look special, without spending a fortune on custom styles and sizes, is to darken the frame around the window. The treatment plays up the shape of the window, reinforcing the geometry of contemporary design. The look is also commonly associated with historic buildings, Spanish-style homes, and farmhouses, as shown in Plan 888-17. “It makes sense to do with big planes of thick glass,” says Ed Binkley. The interior spaces feel much larger.
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.
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.
