How A Kitchen Island Adds Value To A Kitchen

Modern homeowners value the benefits that a kitchen island offers.

Right up there with updated bathrooms, neutral wall colors and an open floor plan, beautiful kitchen islands are becoming one of the biggest must-haves for today’s home plan buyer, from increased counter space to extra seating, to additional storage below. That’s why, when you’re considering house plan styles, it’s worth looking at options that incorporate a large, multi-functional kitchen island with a stove, a sink or just extra space into the layout.

Open Floor Plans — Passing Fad Or Here To Stay?

Open floor plans are one of the most highly requested features in home plan design!

The Rangemoss #1211

Take a look at most contemporary house plans and you will notice one thing in common: an open design. Open concept floor plans create one large space that flows from one area, like the living room, to another, like the dining area, with minimal barriers. Open floor plans take the “great room” and expand it even farther, combining the kitchen, study and even media room into one large open space. Why did this home plan develop, and is it just a passing fad like the formal dining rooms of yesteryear or is it a design that is likely going to stay?

Choose Bathroom Sink Styles for Function and Good Looks

Bathroom trends today cannot be easily characterized. Traditional formulas no longer apply, but there is a dizzying array of choice — from traditional bathroom vanities to a modern bathroom sink and tub that resemble sculpture. As you make choices for your new home, keep in mind that today’s bathrooms have evolved; they should be filled with personality. Whether it’s a spacious master retreat or a tiny powder room, there is no reason each bathroom can’t fulfill its primary purpose and make a style statement at the same time.
