Almost all new house plans are being designed with open floor plan layouts, which combine the cooking, dining, and living areas to create an efficient gathering place. At the heart of many of these designs is the great room, because it is the place where the modern family gathers to play board games, watch television, entertain friends, or simply enjoy time together in front of a roaring fireplace.
The great room should be a comfortable space to spend time. It is not typically a formal room, so the decor is often casual and inviting. The focal point in most great room layouts is a fireplace or entertainment center. Check out our helpful article that will help you design a gorgeous great room.
