ith Mother's Day this Sunday it is only fitting that we recognize the women who truly make a house a home. From a 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 rooms that mother's enjoy spending time in.
It is no surprise that when it comes to building a home and purchasing a house plan that over 60% of women influence or make the final decision. They know exactly how much room they will need in their new home to make it functional, yet appeal to their taste and lifestyle. Topping the list is a large open kitchen layout with plenty of cabinets and countertops, an elegant master suite with pampering bath and walk-in closets and an open floor plan with plenty of flexibility. One of the hottest trends is having an outdoor living space.
