– McMansions are the numero uno of terrible taste. If you start out with one of these, it’s all downhill after that. These eyesores should be nicknamed Big Uglies, and there’s little you can do to design around these messes.
– The McMansion trend is very illogical. After the 1970s, with oil shortages, cars became smaller and more fuel efficient. But the size of our houses has kept growing and growing.
– Our advice is to spend your money on better-quality details in a smaller home versus lower- quality details in a higher cubic-foot space. Quality trumps quantity, and if you’re betting the farm on being a McSize queen, you’re making the biggest initial design mistake of all. Period.
