What rooms do we really use?
This was on another post and I thought it was an excellent question. What rooms do we really use? How many spaces do we wish were larger? Are there some areas you don't use at all...or wish you could combine?
For me, I'd like to have a big kitchen, with an eating area and a small seating area, next to a wood stove. A big living room, with a fireplace and lots of comfy seating and a fun place to converse, watch TV or just read a book. I don't need a big master suite, just a cozy bedroom and (hopefully) a claw foot tub in the bathroom. We don't have a master bath now and it's worked out just fine.
Oh, and let's not forget storage! Large, walk in pantry, a broom closet, a mudroom and lots of closets. I don't have a tons of clothes, so a smaller bedroom closet is okay, but I'd love to have a big linen cabinet...and a place to sew, with storage for all the sewing items that needs to be close by.
So, what about you? If you were designing a home today, what rooms would you want to include? If you were redesigning your home, how would you redo the space? There's no wrong answer, just your answer :)
Here's a few of my favorite kitchen ideas...love the blue and white!
