Summer plans may be canceled, but more time at home can be a blessing. From family movie nights to cozy weekend brunches, enjoying the company of your loved ones makes every day indoors feel sunny and bright. More time at home also means you might start wishing for more space. If you hate that your kitchen table is also your office (and your kids’ craft area), here’s what to look for when you’re shopping for a new home — so you can make sure you never run out of room again!
Flex Room: A flex or bonus room, typically set apart from the main living area, gives you more breathing room when you need it most. The best part about this kind of room is its flexibility — you can use one however you wish, and change it up when you’re ready for something new. If you want a private, quiet place to set up your home office or a designated play area for your kids, a flex space is the perfect room to personalize.
Guest Rooms: One or more extra bedrooms provide several usage options. Of course, they’re great for hosting family or friends from out of town, but they can also be used as a “quarantine” space if someone gets sick or needs rest. They can even be an extra space for you to unwind and clear your mind. You can also use a guest room as a craft room, home gym, or to store items like luggage, out-of-season clothing, and more.
Open-Concept Design: Modern home design embraces open-concept living for its style and flexibility. In many new construction homes, you’ll find a main living area where the rooms flow freely into the other without walls in the way. While you spend time with family and friends, open-concept design creates a feeling of openness while simultaneously allowing everyone to feel more connected.
Outdoor Living Space: An outdoor living space, like a covered patio, adds so much enjoyment to your home — whether you love to relax and read outside on a sunny day, enjoy dinner under the stars, or play baseball in the backyard with your children. With enough space, you can turn your area into whatever you wish, from a relaxing reading nook or yoga spot to a gardener’s oasis and anything in between.
While you embark on your new home search, look out for specific features that guarantee more space and comfort. This way, your kitchen table won’t have to double as a desk or play area — it can simply be the place where you enjoy your most delicious meals!
