If this weekend’s Big Game has you dreaming about the perfect gathering space to watch and celebrate with friends and family, look no further than the master planned community of Summerlin®, where new homes by the nation’s top homebuilders feature an array of beautifully designed great rooms.

As a primary space for relaxation and fun, great rooms serve multiple functions and have become the popular option for many home buyers today. By definition, great rooms are large spaces that roll family rooms, living rooms and dining rooms into one; and great rooms frequently connect with the kitchen for easy access, expanding room size even more. As the go-to spot for so many activities, plenty of seating is a must, along with central placement of the TV or movie screen, and often, fireplaces to add ambiance and warmth.

According to Jenni Pevoto, Director, Marketing for Summerlin, today’s homes are frequently designed with an open floorplan that puts the great room at the heart of the home.

“Great rooms can be the first space you walk into when entering the home, however, there are new floorplans in Summerlin that take the great room experience to the next level by placing it on the top floor,” said Pevoto. “There is truly something for everyone in Summerlin today.”

For homebuyers looking for a more urban experience, many of these floorplans offer great rooms on the top floors to maximize entertainment space, some with rooftop decks offering a three-story perspective of cityscapes and mountain vistas.
