Down sizing isn't so bad !

There's nothing like down sizing! Only million things and room for only half of them, and none of it goes with the new place! On top of that, the new space is so much smaller that feeling cramped and claustrophobic might be a problem. Thinking ahead is deffinately something to do.

Use to a lot of space? Then the new space needs to feel big, even if it isn't. An open floor plan really is a help in that department. However, that open space can have defined areas. The dining room may really be a part of the living area, yet set apart.

As you can see from this view, this home is open from the foyer, through the Living room and dining areas, and if you look closely to the right, you will see it is open into the Kitchen area.

This view from the foyer shows how it is open into the "sun room", casual area, yet doesn't impose on the formal area. Good furniture placement sure helps!

This house feels huge, yet the amount of space is a mere fraction of the old place, and isn't it lovely?
