3 Trends with M/I Homes

Reblog from SheInspires.com

Building with M/I Homes in the Austin area last summer, with my husband, was such a fun experience. I fell in love with all of the upgrades that came with the home, the floor plans, and all the available options to choose from.  Three trends with M/I Homes that had me at first glance were the open kitchen floorplans, large windows, and tray ceilings.  I have to admit that these three added trends make for the perfect home.

Open Kitchens

Who doesn’t want an open kitchen for easy entertaining with family and friends?  Having a space that is functional and open for guest to congregate, allows for a nice flow when entertaining a crowd.  Being able to set the flow from kitchen to living room, to back porch,  when inviting guest over to watch a football game, or for a holiday dinner, makes for easy entertaining.

Large Windows

Large windows in your living room definitely give a light and airy feel. Letting in all that natural light on a daily basis, can set the mood for the day. I love having the light flow into my home. When letting that natural light into your space through large windows, you can easily get the feeling of bringing the outdoors in. That’s exactly what it feels like in my home (photo below of my living room).

Tray Ceilings

Tray ceilings are always a nice accent to a master bedroom.  A tray ceiling adds height and architectural interest to a room, and makes for the perfect place to add a creative color accent and lighting in your space. The one in this MI/Home model in Sweetwater is perfectly styled with beautiful lighting
