Rightsizing is all about decluttering the floor plan. These streamlined plans have layouts with a bit more than the basics, but nothing extraneous—no formal living rooms or enclosed dining rooms. Instead, they offer open gathering spaces that will always be the center of the action. 

Cozy Comfort

Free-flowing gathering zones and secluded sleeping quarters characterize this striking one-story home. Stone accents beautify the exterior. Inside, a three-sided fireplace sheds warmth to the family room and dining area, not far from the generous kitchen's large island with seating for four. In the private wing, the master suite enjoys a walk-in closet and bathroom with two sinks, while two additional bedrooms share a hall bath.

Great Design on a Budget

Though it’s only 1,277 square feet, this smart plan fits in all the essentials plus some extras. The kitchen’s snack counter opens to the living room, adding seating for casual meals. An island adds even more counter space in the kitchen, while direct garage access makes it easy to unload groceries. The master suite boasts dual closets and a private bath with two sinks.

This cute bungalow wastes no space. The kitchen’s curving counter does double duty as a snack bar and opens to the great room. Located conveniently on the first floor, the master suite accesses the rear deck. Upstairs, two surprisingly spacious bedrooms share a full bath. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Part of the Energy Saver Plus collection, this 1,895-square-foot plan allocates space where it will have the most impact: the master suite, the great room, and (of course) the kitchen. Opening up the dining room to the main living area creates a streamlined, modern layout. The garage leads into the kitchen with minimum fuss, so bringing in shopping bags is a cinch. The deluxe master suite opens to the rear lanai. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
