Are They Family Kitchens or Family Room Kitchen Combos

Do you have a small, cramped kitchen that’s in need of some extra counter or cabinet space?

Or perhaps your kitchen is big enough for the entire family to gather in, and your living room goes unused as a result. A remodeling trend that’s been popular since the early ’90s is to combine the living room and kitchen into one central room called a “great” room. You can actually create a lot of extra space in your home without doing an addition, simply by using existing under-used space.

Most families spend more time in the kitchen than any other room. Over the past few decades, main floor plans have seen a trend toward a great room that functions as the main living area, and a trend away from distinct kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms. By putting these main rooms in a shared, open space, contemporary design has put the

    RV design: No more swoopy graphics please

    Whether you’re in Texas or Vermont, Los Angeles or Orlando, if you walk onto an RV sales lot you’ll likely see the same thing: A sea of identical RVs. Some might be travel trailers and fifth wheels, others are larger Class As and Class Cs, but they feature the same—and dare I say bland—exterior styling. Love campers and trailers? Come join our community group.

    You know the one. It’s like someone started at the front of the camper and kept painting long lines that stretch to the rear. Some begin high and end low, others boldly sweep into half circles and curves; but somehow, on RVs big and small, decorative swoops are the go-to design element of choice.

    They’re also all the same colors. White is almost always the preferred background color for swoops, although occasionally beige and gray make an appearance. Maroon, oatmeal, and brown swoop together on

    118 Modern Houses (PHOTOS)

    Here is a terrific collection of modern houses of all sizes, materials and colors that exhibit extraordinary architectural and design talent. Diverse design. Easy-to-scroll gallery.

    Geometric top-heavy concrete home built on edge of steep slope

    Welcome to our collection of modern houses.

    I remember viewing my first modern home that was built in the smallish town where I grew up.  There is a mountain on the east side of town where large homes were built.  It was the premiere neighborhood in our town because the views are incredible.

    Far up the mountain in the late 80’s a family built a modern home that deviated from the usual West Coast style of homes that were popular on the mountain.  The sparkling new white cube-style home with cliff-edge pool shone like a jewel on the mountain.  I was smitten… and often went up the mountain to enjoy the views and the homes.

    Family Room vs. Living Room

    The different rooms used as places a family can gather and for entertaining visitors are known as living rooms, great rooms, dens, drawing rooms and sitting rooms. Each may have different purposes and design styles.

    Family Room vs. Living Room Styles Then and Now

    The living room was traditionally a more formal room than a family room. It served as the reception area for guests. The family room was strictly used just for the family and on occasion, guests during informal entertaining. Today, separate formal living rooms are mostly obsolete for the average American family as many social formalities gave way to informal lifestyles.

    Interchangeable Terminology

    The terms living room and family room are used interchangeably for the average family today. There are some families that may still maintain a formal lifestyle and, in that case, would have a home with both a living room and a family
