Family Room & Dining Room
Whether your style is formal or more family-friendly, Kingbridge Homes can help you design the perfect family room and dining room combination for your new custom home. Due to homebuyer demands, virtually all of the homes we build now include some degree of an open floor plan. Open concept homes offer some undeniable benefits including: increased natural light flow throughout the house thanks to fewer interior walls; open traffic flow from one room to another, meaning you can do more with less overall square footage; and entertaining guests (or keeping watch over your children) is simplified, as you can see and interact with a variety of people across rooms at one time.
As you plan the living space in your custom home, an important consideration is the dining room. Depending on your needs, we can help you create a less formal, more open dining room that is ideally suited for daily family use or we can design a formal dining room with upscale dinner parties in mind. If you are partial to a traditional looking dining room space, we recommend including crown molding, decorative wall trim and architectural casings to give your newly constructed custom home that sophisticated Old World feeling.
Beyond the dining room, there are also amenities and upgrades to consider for your family room. Fireplaces are a natural gathering place and can create a focal point in your open floor plan. Due to our colder winter climate in St. Louis, most of our clients are eager to include at least one fireplace in their living space. There are great options for both gas and wood burning fireplaces, and our team will be happy to discuss the benefits of each with you.
Another upgrade that is appealing, especially to our luxury homebuyers, is built-in bookshelves or cabinetry. The addition of this custom millwork can take the interior aesthetic of your custom home to the next level and adds highly sought-after storage that is perfectly integrated into the overall flow of the house.
Regardless of which floorplans and amenities are most appealing to you, the Kingbridge Homes team is here to guide you through the design of your family room and dining room spaces to create a living area that works well with your lifestyle and your budget. Let us know how we can help!
