Today’s homes are built for our comfort and safety. Gone are the days of compartmentalized living, with a floor plan built around a handful of small rooms, each designed for a specific purpose.
Instead, we have extra-large living spaces that combine multiple functions. These designs make life a little bit easier: if the kids are playing in the living room, you can keep a close eye on them from the kitchen counter because all of the rooms flow into one another.
And the objects inside of our homes are different now too. Just slide open a drawer in your kitchen or have a look in your children’s toy boxes: items that were once made of wood, metal or other natural materials are now made of plastic.
