As technology has changed so has the purpose of some of the rooms in our homes. One of the biggest changes is in the living area. Not long ago living rooms were a formal area for gathering. In today's homes we are seeing the living rooms become more accommodating for the technologies that so many families are using, while also fulfilling that need for a common space for families.

Built-in entertainment centers are one of the greatest features in today's homes. This eliminates the need to go out and buy one! It also ensures that it will fit seamlessly with your home's feel. Many home builders now offer this, so be sure to take advantage!

Another favorite that we are seeing is the use of electric fireplaces. These give a really neat look to any room, and are also a great way to add a little warmth to the home. 


Open floor plans are becoming more and more popular, and one of the main rooms this effects is the living room. This is a great option to look into if you enjoy entertaining, because the floor from one room to the next is better suited for including everyone. 


If you are in the market for a new home or are interested in building one be sure to ask about these options, because they could make a huge difference in your home's look and feel!
