Creating flexible living spaces that adapt to your changing lifestyle and needs is a popular trend in new home design. This is especially important in small house plans, that can’t afford to waste any space. Common flexible spaces include rooms that can be combined to create in-law suites, home offices (even his and hers), music/media rooms, craft or hobby rooms, dens that can become guest rooms and dining rooms that can become offices.
Our latest issue of Home Ideas features an interview with Mark Mathis, a THD design partner and president of House Plan Gallery discussing the importance of creating flexible living spaces. He specializes in designing stock house plans with flexible spaces for homes between 1,000 and 3,000 square feet.
