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.
Similarly, if you plan to encourage visitors to go outside, it helps if the door to the porch or deck is located in the family room or great room. It’s less likely to be used if it’s in the nook or bedroom. Parties are the one time when your entry hall is put to the test. It’s nice to have enough space to greet guests at the door. Ample front-hall closets used to be a given in new-home design. These days, you need to double-check to make sure they are big enough for guests to leave coats, gloves, hats, and maybe even boots. Having an office or guest room near the front door for leaving these items is a nice luxury, as illustrated by Gardner Plan 929-29, above.
