Recent trend watchers in the house plan industry are noticing that the living room (and sometimes the great room) can feel too formal for every day family activities such as watching a movie or relaxing with a book. With this trend, the need for a casual family living space has developed. Sometimes labeled Family Rooms, Keeping Rooms, Hearth Rooms or Morning Rooms, these spaces are placed conveniently off the kitchen in the floor plan design, for a secluded comfort sometimes not offered by the prominence of the living room.
Donald A. Gardner Architects has a selection of house plans to meet the needs of the modern family with a combination of casual family living spaces and formal places, for different lifestyles and occasions. Offered in a variety of styles and square footages, you can find the house plan with convenient comfort in our selection of plans with Family Rooms, Morning Rooms, Hearth Rooms and Keeping Rooms.
