Take our quiz and found out if your home's proportions are infringing on your quality of life.

You can assess the appropriateness of your home’s proportions by asking yourself the following questions. If you answer yes to five or more, your house is suffering from a case of “Too Bigness.”

■  Are any living areas in the house taller than they are wide?

■  Do any spaces feel comfortable only when the house is full of people?

■  When you are in the kitchen, do you have to shout to be heard in the adjacent family room?

■  Is your house so large that you can coexist with other household members without running into them?

■  Are any spaces particularly echoey?
