According to the Wall Street Journal, “The new American home is taking shape.”

“Tough recent years are leaving their mark on home design, just as the housing-boom years sent square footage soaring and stamped a distinctive “McMansion” style on neighborhoods across the country. Big home builders, smaller architecture firms and even bathroom-fixture makers are adjusting to the shift toward more practical features and away from the aspirational.

The new styles are showing up in the relatively few new homes under construction as well as in the remodeling of older homes. More people are renovating as they stay put longer. “

The following are 6 new design trends replacing some fading features:

*Open Family Rooms replacing formal living rooms

*Elevators replacing second staircase

*’Lifestyle center’ replacing the office

*Steam showers replacing soaker tubs

*Outdoor living space replacing the breakfast nook

*Drop Zone replacing the large foyer
