Why Formal Dining Rooms are Out

Houses used to have clearly defined rooms. A formal living room for entertaining guests, a den for relaxing with family, a formal dining room for big dinners and an eat-in kitchen for a quick breakfast. But that’s not how we live anymore.

These days, we want our homes to be flexible to meet our needs as they change. We want space to entertain your friends and family for a Thanksgiving gathering but you don’t want the space to swallow you up when it’s just you and the kids.

That’s why flexible spaces, including dining areas, are becoming the norm in newer floorplans. A flexible dining space is often open to other living areas of the home like your great room and kitchen and it has room to add those extra chairs or the leaf in your table when you have more guests.

The Vista series of floorplans embraces the ways we’re beginning to live with features like flexible dining spaces, dead end great rooms and integrated outdoor spaces. After all, your home by the beach shouldn’t feel like a blast from the past, it should embrace the next 20 years of innovation.

Are Your Builder’s Floorplans Embracing How We Lived 20 Years Ago?

There are dozens of builders to choose from in southern Delaware, and each one has its own list of priorities when it comes to building a home. For some, it’s price. They want to build a house at the lowest cost possible. For others, it’s to build the most luxurious house with every bell and whistle in the most prestigious communities. For us, it’s building a home that you can feel, well, at home in.

Part of building a home you feel at home in is embracing new technology and patterns of life, which is why we designed the Vista series. Most builders are still relying on their tried and true floorplans. And that makes sense because they still work. But to feel really at home and comfortable in your new house, you want a floorplan that’s designed for how we live now.

At Aurora Homes, we believe our clients deserve a great home — not just a house — with a great design, at a great value. We believe in building a house that can be adjusted to fit you, instead of you adjusting to your house. When we meet, we’ll talk about how we can start building a home that fits your life.
