Open floor plans are replacing living and dining rooms with great rooms; an open space defines the kitchen and family room with a work counter or partial wall, eliminating diving walls, states Realtor Mag.

Other additions in 2015 to Michigan floor plans included home offices and mud rooms. The overall size of average houses declined, from 2400 square feet to 2150 square feet, according to Wausau Homes.
