    One more question. What did you do for your countertops? We have the same wood ceilings and trying to figure out finishes.

Small but Flowing SpacesMy, how they’ve grown. Homes in the 1950s were dramatically smaller than they are now. In the postwar era, to meet the booming demand for housing while personal budgets remained tight, modest house sizes were the norm. The average size of a new single-family home in the U.S. was less than 1,000 square feet in 1950, according to the National Association of Home Builders. In 2015, the average square footage of a new single-family home had grown to over 2,600 square feet, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.With the cost of construction rising in recent years, it is more relevant than ever to get inspiration from the lesson of the smaller original midcentury modern homes. As shown here, the open and flowing spaces popularized in midcentury modern design combined living, dining and kitchen spaces to make a smaller home seem larger.Smaller and Smarter: An Architect’s Resolutions
