Raleigh Floor Plans with Keeping Rooms

Considering building a new home anywhere throughout central North Carolina? If you've been browsing Raleigh new home floor plans, you may be wondering what, exactly, keeping rooms are used for

Keeping Rooms:

- Are usually located just off the kitchen, for visibility from the most-often used room in the home.

- Are used as secondary living space (after living room or great room).

- Often have vaulted ceilings.

- Often have a fireplace as the focal point.

- Generally are less formal and more flexible than living room spaces

- Generally are smaller than the Great Room/Family Room
