These plans attract a lot of attention on Pinterest. Interestingly, it’s not just big, splashy mansions that are getting all the re-pins, proving that a well-designed home is appealing at any size.

Southern Favorite

This beautiful home is the picture of Southern life. The wraparound porch spans the entire front and side of the home; another porch sits outside the kitchen. Inside, open space and two fireplaces encourage large gatherings. A nearby keeping room, kitchen, and media room sit ready for cozier affairs. Upstairs, a central laundry room is convenient to all and separates the two family bedrooms from the luxurious master suite.

Serious Curb Appeal

This handsome home is ideal for an active family. A wraparound front porch and three rear porches, one of them screened, offer a variety of spaces for enjoying the outdoors. Inside, the spacious island kitchen opens to a relaxed breakfast area and the hearth-warmed keeping room. A study has French-door access to the porch. The master bedroom is enhanced by a lavish bath and private access to a small rear porch. Three upstairs bedrooms have their own baths; two have walk-in closets. The basement can be finished to hold a variety of fun spaces, including a wet bar and billiards room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Tranquil Elegance

This gorgeous home combines the feeling of a rustic retreat with plenty of luxuries. At the heart of the home, the lodge room serves as a hub to other areas: to the left, the open island kitchen and curving breakfast nook; to the right, the super-posh master suite with a jaw-dropping bath and long walk-in closet. Two family bedrooms reside on the opposite side of the home, not far from the extensive porch. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Captivating Cottage

Here’s proof that a small design can be just as attention-grabbing as a bigger home. This charming Craftsman design makes the most of every square foot with its open layout. The kitchen's island gives owners plenty of room to prepare food while interacting with family members in the nearby living room. Special details include lots of storage (check out the master walk-in closet), a handy mud room on the way in from the garage, and covered outdoor living in both front and back.
