Televisions too often become a home’s focal point, inhibiting social interaction. Tuck yours away by turning the den into a TV nook with a couple of cozy chairs.

The open-concept great room is a host’s dream. Hook up a barbecue on the west-facing balcony without being cut off from the action, and gather your friends around a big reclaimed wood table for a family-style feast.

The exposed kitchen means you have to be smart about keeping the counters tidy. Embrace open storage with a sleek industrial metal shelving unit.

Install some stackable storage shelves in the walk-in closet to make the most of the generous space and cut down on clutter.

Set the tone for your suite’s style by filling the foyer’s ample wall space with a piece of local art.
