Open floor plans have become increasingly popular in today’s homes. An open floor plan is a home that contains large, open areas as opposed to separate rooms. This is most common in the living area, where the living room, dining area, and kitchen are usually included in one space as opposed to the more traditional way of having them all as separate rooms. An open floor plan home will still have separate rooms of course, such as bedrooms and bathrooms.
So, why are open floor plans edging out homes with a lot of separate spaces? An open floor plan in the living/common area is ideal for entertaining and spending time with friends and family. With a kitchen that is open to the dining and living areas, the host can prepare food while still interacting with his or her guests. In the same way, a family can spend time together while each member does separate tasks, like fixing dinner and watching television.
Another advantage of an open floor plan is that it makes a home feel bigger and more spacious. If you take two areas with the same exact square footage and leave one open while separating the other with walls and rooms, the open area is bound to give the illusion of being bigger than the space with separate rooms.
Whether you’re looking for a home with an open floor plan or one with a more traditional floor plan with separate spaces, we are here to customize your new home to your individual style and taste.
