Every family is different. Some love congregating in the den after a long day of work and school. Others prefer to do their own thing, and then join together for dinner in a formal dining area. Still others venture outside to hang out on the porch and in the yard for games and fun.
One place many families seem to prefer to gather together is the kitchen. For many, it’s the hub of the household; less formal meals are enjoyed at islands or small tables, homework is done at the kitchen table or maybe the counter while mom and dad prepare dinner, and summertime ice cream sundaes are prepared before bed.
For that reason, we’re calling attention to some floorplans we offer here at Wayne that really highlight the kitchen as the central focal point of the home. Since all our floorplans are highly customizable, you could take any one and make your kitchen the perfect spot to gather, but these four homes are especially designed to make the kitchen the main focus.

- The Covington floorplan is by far one of our most popular, for many reasons. The kitchen is one of those reasons: it opens onto a massive breakfast nook, which flows straight into the great room, making it absolutely perfect for family gatherings as well as entertaining larger groups. With a big island and eat-in ledge, it’s practical too, and boasts a clear and easy path to the more formal dining room for fancier affairs.
- With more than 3,600 square feet, the Fairfax is one of our roomiest layouts to date. From the convenient owner’s entrance located off the large garage, you’ll head straight into the massive kitchen, which attaches directly to the open breakfast space and further into the family room. Like socializing with family and friends while preparing a meal? Look no further than the Fairfax; it’s perfect for it! And with a den AND living room too, no one will feel cramped or pressured to hang out if they want solo time.
- In the Saratoga, all it takes is one glance at the blueprint to see that the kitchen is not just the symbolic center of the home; it’s the literal center! Everything revolves around the kitchen in this spacious, 2,700 square foot, two-story home. Move in one direction to get to the sunny breakfast space or head into the vaulted, two story great room. Go in the other to entertain in the formal dining space. Turn a corner to toss dirty dish towels right into the dedicated laundry space. It’s like a control hub for your home!
- In the spacious Winchester, you’ll have plenty of private room for your family across all four bedrooms, and together in the kitchen and entertaining area too! With a massive center island, the kitchen in the Winchester is great for family gathering, but equally as equipped to serve a small or large gathering. Serve a traditional meal in the nearby dining room, or keep things casual as your guests gather in the wide open great room.
