In the past decade alone, it seems as though the preference of an open floor plan has evolved from a design trend to a newfound “must have”. While homes of the past were stylishly diced into multiple rooms with designated purposes, the open floor plan welcomes everyone into a single room of the home upon walking in the front door. Simple, beautiful, and now chic in design, it looks as if the open floor plan has quickly become a classic for home buyers, builders, and owners alike.
A Single Room for Everything
An open floor plan is an especially appealing concept for families that may be looking for an all inclusive space. This typically includes a kitchen combined with a dining room into a single floor plan where everyone in the home can talk, eat, and play on the same level in one cohesive room.
Letting the Light into Your Space
Apart from the large amount of space and room for activities, one major appeal of the open floor plan is the flood of light in the room. By opening multiple rooms into a single space that spans both sides of your home, natural light becomes a favored accessory in the room. This love of light has not only become a frequently cited design element, but also a gateway to healthy living by bringing the light of the outdoors into your home.
An Entertainers Dream
Open floor plans have also become ideal options for holiday entertaining throughout the year because it allows everyone in the house to gather in a single space comfortably. Whereas before, guests were split between various rooms such as the kitchen, dining room, and living room, they can now eat and socialize within the same space in a practical and pleasant space. For this, many homeowners have now opted for elements such as breakfast bars or island seating to accommodate multiple kitchen guests beyond their dining room table. These smaller additions are also practical for everyday use for informal dining or socializing in the kitchen.
