Add a Great Room To Your Home
Traditional houses contain a living room and a kitchen, but modern houses might contain a great room as the heart of the house. This large gathering room is used for entertaining and either replaces the family room and living room or it is even used as a dining room.
Cultural changes have affected room usage and given rise to the great room. As larger televisions, video games and computers have become the primary source of at-home entertainment, many homeowners have needed additional space for all of their new gadgets. A great room usually showcases multiple architectural features, such as a vaulted ceiling, which might have exposed beams or might extend two stories high. It usually is a centrally located room and has many large windows that let in lots of natural light. Great rooms often boast a fireplace, even in warmer climates.
