Expandable Rooms — This Cleaver Building Design Improves Function

The Party Living Room

So your husband just invited all 37 employees to an evening get-together at your house. As the beads of sweat begin to form on your forehead you wonder how 37 people are going to fit into your living room. 

Not a problem if that outer wall slides away to blend the living room with your expansive deck. Suddenly, you have room for 50 people. 

Outer walls or sections of them are fairly easy to design so that they slide open. With good design, your living room and outer deck blend as though they are part of the same room.

To achieve a Blended Living Room

This is achieved with smart choices for decking and hardwood or stone flooring for the living room. This is a perfect feature for anyone who loves to entertain.

Expandable rooms are just that. They give you the power to enjoy the use of your home in many different ways. Other rooms that benefit from retractable walls are kitchens, bedrooms, family rooms. 

Secret Rooms

Along the same line of thinking as expandable rooms are secret rooms. The whole wall-slide idea is perfect to create a room such as a home office with an outside entrance and a retractable wall that opens up a small office into another space. This provides you with a usable office where clients can meet with you without limiting the amount of space that you dedicate to a home office or business. 

Outbuildings Benefit from Retractable Walls, Too

These features work well in outbuildings too. If you have a home business then consider the retractable wall idea for your barn, equipment storage sheds, and even your garage. 

At Design Custom Homes, we use progressive design standards to create homes that people love. Can your home use a retractable wall?
