In current times, flexibility is of primary importance while designing houses, and Marcus Hiles says that houses are being planned with open floor blueprints and flexible rooms that can certainly transform to accommodate newer members of growing families. Perceived spaces—that is, rooms marked by various materials or shades found in roofs or floors—is a new approach to make interiors seem more spacious while excluding unnecessary walls. Breaking through barriers is what true design really means. For example, larger windows permit extra light and can replace walls right away, while combining the inside with the outside world. Bearing in mind the end goal to make homes more alluring, hot tubs, gyms and spas have been created making relaxation easy to achieve. Additionally, as the attractiveness of cooking gourmet dinners has expanded, so have kitchens: with restaurant-like appliances and furniture like islands, kitchens are usually assigned extra overall square footage and have become the hub of the house, bettering dining and living rooms as the place families come together.
