The color white’s biggest blessing is the fact that it makes all the other colors stand out. If you really want the colorfulness of your house to be seen from miles away a white picket fence is a sure-fire way to do so! Since picket fences draw much attention to themselves with their classy look they also draw much attention to your front yard. Make the best of it by creating a blooming yard!
There is something so familiar about a white picket fence that it immediately draws us in. It is compelling to look at urging us to get closer to it and the breathtaking garden that’s lying behind it. We can stare at the fence in fascination wondering if the interior of the house does the marvelous exterior justice!
Sure a white picket fence can be a symbol of classiness and quiet domestic life. But it can also be a part of luxury wealth and prestige. A grand house in the color of peach with perfectly decorated exterior is set within the safety of a chic white picket fence! A small town home with a brick exterior feels harsh and cold so a white picket fence is a very simple solution. It instantly makes the setting kind and likable!
It is the lower floor of this family home that contains the living area kitchen dining and pantry along with a restroom and additional storage space. On the top floor one finds the bedrooms and bathrooms as the demarcation between public and private space is well-defined.

Replacing the old staircase with the new design not only enhanced the visual appeal of the home but also saved space by 20 percent giving the architects more room to work with. Replacing the old larger kitchen with an ergonomic cutting-edge kitchen that is much smaller also freed up space for the living room.
