Like most home trends, the new-home construction industry can most easily incorporate this change, sometimes by paring the size of bedrooms. Industry groups such as the National Sleep Foundation and the Better Sleep Council suggest scaling back bedroom furniture and accessories to create a more dedicated space for sleep. Dickenson agrees, and says hes seeing consumers shift away from bedroom designs that accommodate other functions such as homework, reading, and hanging out. “Our clients are increasingly asking that their bedrooms are sized to the beds, plus adequate space around them. The once typical 20-foot-by-20-foot floor plan is decreasing to 14 feet by 16 feet. Closets, however, never shrink,” he says.
Atlanta-based Pineapple House Interior Design often places doggie doors between interior rooms and screened porches, to take advantage of this common design feature of Southern homes. “That way dogs and cats get to look out all the time to see squirrels, birds, and cars and know whos pulling up but are safe inside,” says Cynthia Pararo, chief operations officer. One design from ICI Homes, a custom homebuilder in Daytona, Fla., offers a “cat hotel” room with climbing walkways built from concrete columns with wood trusses and shingle “roofs.”
