If you want to understand how people live, social scientists tell us, look at their homes. The theory is pretty straightforward. When you look at someone’s home, at the way the rooms are arranged, at how much space is given to designated functions – cooking, sleeping, bathing, storage – it’s possible to get some sort of idea about what’s important to the people who live in that space. The home is the tangible expression of the lifestyle.
At least it should be. Unfortunately, what often happens is families find themselves in a situation where the house, as it is currently configured, just doesn’t fit their lifestyle. Maybe someone in the family is an avid amateur chef – but they’re stuck working in a tiny, 1960’s galley style kitchen. Maybe there are four kids – and only two bedrooms. Maybe adult children are returning home on a temporary or permanent basis, and need some private space. Many families are having grandparents or even great-grandparents move into the family home.
As our lives change, our homes need to change with them.
