  1. I believe that the trends in home designs have certainly been in the right direction. Gradually eliminating the formal areas such as the dining room and living room have been the result of how American families prefer to live in their homes. For the most part this reflects a preference for closer family activities and an appreciation for togetherness. Not only has this been the result of our social develoment, but it also leads to accomodate healthier habits of cooking and eating at home as well as the economics of more efficient living spaces.

This realization and the economic of today has led to house designs that still enjoy opulence but on a much smaller scale.
