5 Fun Ideas for Your Flex Room

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 2, 2018

 

At Shea Homes® Arizona, our design team spends months, sometimes years, meticulously crafting our homes to tailor each floorplan to specific lifestyles. But no matter how much planning and heart goes into each design, the most important thing is that your home feels uniquely you.

That’s where the flex room comes in.

Flex rooms are designed to be flexible. You might see it on the floorplan labeled ‘flex’, or ‘optional space’, but they all amount to the same thing: your space to do with what you please. This is your chance to create a space that you love to return to, that will wow your guests when you give them a tour.

Here are five of our favorite flex rooms, curated to give you some inspiration for the spaces that will add the perfect pop of personality to your new home.

1. A Hobby Room
Hobby RoomYou can finally have a space dedicated purely to your passion. Whether you are an artist, a fitness enthusiast, or a collector, flex rooms provide a special area in your home that is solely dedicated to your favorite hobby.

2. An Office or Study Area
Home OfficeLet’s face it, no one truly leaves all of their work at the office. By turning a flex space into a home office or library, you will have a place where you can focus when you need to work late to meet a deadline or decide to work from home for the day. When you are not using it, the kids can use the space as a study area!

3. An Entertainment Room
Game RoomTurn your flex room into a space dedicated to having fun! Make your home the perfect place for entertaining by creating your own game table room, or a private movie theater. By having a separate entertainment space, you won’t have to worry about disturbing the rest of the family when you break during a game of table tennis, or when you want to watch an action movie late at night. On top of that, your home will quickly become the gathering place for all your friends!

In The Spotlight – Shea3D™ Plan 353

by Shea Homes Colorado on March 3, 2015

 

Exceeding buyers’ expectations for personalized flexibility
How do you live life? Are you an entertainer, an aspiring gourmet cook, an easy-going outdoor type, or a combination of the three? In the search for a new home that will accommodate the way you live life, you very likely have a list of must-haves. Shea Homes is daring to take homebuilding to the next level by offering more personalized options per floor plan design. Case in point, Shea3D™ at Colliers Hill in Erie. Shea3D™ is a revolutionary new concept that invites you to select one of three main-floor configurations that best embodies the heart of your home.

What is your preference?
Each of the seven Shea3D™ plans has three main-floor lifestyle options: Entertainment, Kitchen, and Outdoor. Each lifestyle option identifies a focal point for your home that reflects how and where you enjoy spending most of your time. If you are the kind of person who likes an open floor plan where guests can mix and mingle, the Entertainment Lifestyle may be for you. If you enjoy creating amazing culinary delights, the Kitchen Lifestyle may be the suitable center of your home. Finally, if you like the idea of spending just about as much time outside as in, the Outdoor Lifestyle is for you.

Spotlight Home – Plan 353
This week’s Spotlight Home is the clever 2,375-square-foot Plan 353 with several standout features. One such feature is a second-level suite including a loft, two bedrooms, and a full bath – a fantastic area for the youngest family members to spend time doing homework, watching movies, or hanging out with friends.

And the award goes to… the model homes of Stepping Stone.

by Shea Homes Colorado on February 11, 2015

 

In the waning days of 2014, Shea Homes at Stepping Stone was honored with a win for Best Interior Merchandising of a Model. The Marketing and Merchandising Excellence (MAME) Award, given by the Home Builder’s Association of Metro Denver, recognized the exceptional interior design of Shea’s 3507 Model, one of their collection’s smaller plans at 2,090 square feet. Perfect for first-time buyers, this plan inspired the designers of Ellis Hays Design to appeal to the tastes of a young family, using bright colors, durable materials, and modern, playful styles. As Diana Ellis, principal at the design firm, explains, “We imagined a family with a baby or toddler, so we wanted a comfortable feeling. Furnishings that weren’t super high-end, maybe even repurposed, since realistically they might even be scratched or colored on.”

The firm sought to complement the family-friendly design inherent in the floor plan. Ellis notes that Shea’s aptly named SPACES Collection really does offer “lots of different spaces that can be utilized in different ways.” She likes the way Plan 3507 is open and connected, but zoned out for a family’s different activities. “It’s great for family time,” she points out. “There’s a sitting area with a sofa where you can watch TV, but adjacent to it is a more intimate area where kids can play games, read, or do homework. And both areas are close to the kitchen, so whoever is cooking can interact with the rest of the family.”

This open concept floor plan has proven popular with customers, too. They often comment on the lack of wasted space and the ability to get three bedrooms, a loft, and main-floor office in an economically-priced home.

Of course, this is only one of Shea’s model homes available for touring at Stepping Stone. Feel free to explore them all and decide which one is your blue ribbon winner.
