Dining Room or Common Area? Indianapolis Custom Home Builders Weigh In

Written by: Penny Siml on Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Indianapolis custom home builders can help you decide between a dining room and common area.

For centuries the dining room was a place to dine. They usually were built with enough room to store a table, chairs, and maybe a china cabinet. Today Indianapolis custom home builders see customers taking a different approaches to the traditional dining room style based on client needs. The fancy dining area is slowly being replaced by a large, open common room. Here are some pros and cons of this transition.

With an open common area, dining can now be an active part of your Indianapolis custom home. The openness creates a casual, exposed environment which invites multitasking. Large common areas can make your square footage seem greater. This open design will eliminate dead unused space. This floor plan is ideal if you entertain large families or active groups of people.

Dining rooms are traditional. Without them your home may lack a formal vibe. When having guests over, you may not want to expose them to all rooms of your home. The dining room will serve as a secluded space to host. If you are looking to remodelyour home to accommodate a open area, this can be an expensive transition. Also, dining rooms can break up the noise coming from other areas of the home.

Before laying out a plan for your home, sit down and decide which floor plan would work best for your needs. Need help?
