The weather may be swinging back to our normal, balmy Central Texas climate, but there is evidence that our holiday season is in full swing everywhere you look. At Magruder Homes in Bryan-College Station, we’re holding off on decorating our new homes with Christmas lights and reindeer until after Thanksgiving because we have bigger turkeys to fry. If there ever was a reason to design an open floorplan home, it’s surely for hosting friends and family during the holiday season, and for preparing said turkeys.


The days of disastrous holiday gathering that entail cramped prep areas, restless teenagers that have nowhere to go but the relish tray, and separate dining areas are long gone. Today, prep is streamlined, teenagers are not allowed in the kitchen (unless they’re on dish duty), and families can gather in dining areas all at once. Here are just a few things to be thankful for this holiday season with your Magruder Home:

  • Plenty of Prep: From double sinks for the multi-tasker at heart to the expansive countertops for the cook who must set the palate before creating the masterpiece, prep areas are key for keeping a kitchen working efficiently.
  • (Not) Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen: Keep those double dippers out of the kitchen while the prep is still in the process. With a Magruder Home open floor plan, access to other rooms is a breeze. Set up bar seating between the kitchen and the living room so everyone is still involved in the holiday magic.
  • Be Merry and Bright: At Magruder Homes, we cherish a well lit home. Exposed windows and inset lights in the cabinetry create an ambiance that is comforting and warm. And when things get a little more crowded in those living areas, large windows create a more open atmosphere.


Enjoy the holiday season this year with those you love, in a home you love. Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Magruder Homes!
