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!

The Cannery: A Farm-to-Table New Home Community

by Shea Homes Northern California on November 24, 2015

 

The idea for living at The Cannery is pure and natural: Surround homes with parks and a working farm. The parks and open space energize the residents and the farm feeds the community. The Cannery is the first farm-to-table new home community in California, and it will include 547 energy efficient homes with Livable Design features built into every residence. The homes will be diverse, for all generations and lifestyles, some homes’ multi-generational Suite Home designs include guest houses and private quarters.

At The Cannery, the entire cycle of life – from raising food to raising families – revolves in one, healthy place.  The first fresh, green community bordered by its own farm, The Cannery is rooted in the most up-to-date neighborhood and environmental thinking. Yet, it is down-to-earth and friendly with parks, paths, stores, and plazas that make life easier, healthier, sustainable, and comfortable. The neighborhood includes a clubhouse, pool, dog park and practice soccer field. Bike paths will wind throughout the site. And lucky for you, two new Shea Homes communities are now selling at The Cannery in Davis.

Tilton by Shea Homes | Tilton will be made up of 76 cottages with up to four bedrooms and three baths, ranging from 1,706 to 3,024 square feet. The cottage-style homes at Tilton feature stunning great rooms and kitchens, ideal for a growing family. The majority of the home plans include an attached two-car garage, with plenty of room for bike storage. Tilton is priced from the mid $700,000s. PHOTOS | FLOOR PLANS
