By Toll Brothers 3 minute read

Flexible living spaces can add versatility to your home and enhance your everyday lifestyle. Explore these inspirational ideas on how to design key areas of your home for a variety of uses – from the kitchen and great room to flex rooms, extra bedrooms, and home offices – helping to make the most of your time at home.


1. A Connecting Great Room that Exudes Luxury  

An expansive great room with modern architecture creates many opportunities for flexible living. An open-concept floor plan can be subtle yet impactful, allowing you to easily transition from one space to another. This creates the perfect multipurpose area for various family-focused events – hosting large parties, cooking a gourmet meal, catching up on emails, or enjoying a quiet evening of relaxation.

3. Elevate Your Work Day with a Flexible Office Area

Transitional spaces like a home office can be easily incorporated into your home’s floor plan during a new home build. Consider how this space can be used and where it best fits within your home. The options are endless, whether it’s a personal library off the foyer, a private workstation in the hidden nook of a hallway, or a traditional office set-up in a flex room or extra bedroom. Discover a multitude of ways to design your office at home.

4. Add Versatility with Creative Flex Room Ideas

Flex rooms can be easily customized into areas that perfectly suit your lifestyle. An expansive basement or a spacious second-floor loft are ideal spaces for hosting game nights, transforming into an at-home theater, or converting into an extra bedroom. Consider the function of your flex room and design it with distinct furniture, lighting, and artwork to create a space you will love. Learn more on how to design a spare room or flex space.

6. Designing a Dining Room for Every Occasion

Featuring stunning statement fixtures, elegant accents, and premium finishes, the dining room is a space that can be easily designed to fit your wishes. If you prefer an easily accessible dining area for everyday use, consider a centralized location that seamlessly transitions into the great room and outdoor living area. If you desire an elegant space for special gatherings, a secluded area of your home that emanates a formal, elegant setting may be best. The dining room may also be designed for additional functionality, such as wine storage and display.
