Homes Designed for Women
From the cozy living room filled with pictures and keepsakes to the sweet smells of a home cooked dinner in a well-designed kitchen to the worn rocking chair in the corner of a master suite overlooking the backyard — these are just a few of the special ways moms turn houses into homes.

It is no surprise that when it comes to building a home and selecting a house plan that over 60% of house plans are bought by women. They know how much space they need in their new home to make it functional, yet appeal to their tastes. They know exactly what they need — a large kitchen with cooking area and breakfast counter, lots of storage space, a large dining room for special occasions, an open floor plan with lots of room to makes changes down the road and an outdoor living space to host birthday parties.

Fresh style and timeless design are the hallmarks of Merillat Classic®, a perennially popular collection. Also view Merillat's Masterpiece® and Essentials® collections, so you can design your perfect kitchen.

A big trend is to create a social kitchen where family and friends can gather and enjoy good food and company in a more a casual setting. You can achieve this feel and design by incorporating a large island with seating, a sink and cooking appliance, as well as multiple workstations. Keep the space from your kitchen to great room open, rather than using walls to define your living space. Have fun with your decor, especially your cabinets, by mixing and matching colors and finishes to create a look that blends rather than matches. Big windows and glass doors offer a great feel, especially if they lead to an outdoor living space. If space allows, place a fireplace close to your kitchen and open living room.
