Is there full height over it — creating an open feel — or does it just disappear into the ceiling, which makes a room feel small and cramped.
Follow the path from garage to kitchen. Often you’ll pass a utility area, mud room, or laundry. This is the way most people enter a house; circulation should be clear and easy without tight corners so coming in with groceries or other items is as convenient as possible.
Many new homes have entryways and “great rooms” with extra high ceilings. The lower floor may show the ceiling height numerically with a dashed line indicating the perimeter of the taller space. From the second floor the plans will include a note that a space does not have a floor but is “open to below,” as shown here.
Is there room for furniture around it? I like the way the great room fireplace in modern prairie style, below is part of a wall with built-in storage for media and books. A fireplace too close to a doorway is not very useful.
