Sunday’s newspapers featured a number of articles that discussed a common thread – planned space in homes. The Home Décor article (Vanities, dressing tables are back in vogue) focused in the resurgence of popularity in vanities as a place for people (primarily women) can get prepared for a date or a day in a private space.
The Creating Spaces section (Project balanced retirement, child rearing needs) highlights a remodeled home that built in space for transitions, such as a better transition from garage to kitchen and space for toys and childrearing items.
These articles indicate a trend towards homes that accommodate the need for customized space. It’s a good reminder for homebuyers – think about your personal needs for space when looking for a new home.
