Open Floor Plans — Passing Fad Or Here To Stay?

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

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.

CREATING A HOME PLAN RENDERING – PART 3

In this three part series, we walk you through the artistic process of creating a home plan rendering!

A home plan rendering really comes to life when color is added. See Anita’s final steps as she colors in the sky and landscaping and selects a color scheme for the home’s exterior.

Part 3 – Creating a Home Plan Rendering:

Here, I have begun to add color. I usually start with the sky because it immediately gives a 3D look. I have switched from my library of hardline black/white brushes to my color/painting brushes.
