For nearly a decade, the preference of an open concept living space has grown to be a ‘must-have’ among homeowners and future homeowners alike. With older homes of the past built with multiple rooms for designated uses, an open concept living space allows homeowners to enjoy the company of their family and friends within a single open floor plan. Its simple layout and flow between spaces of a home are only some of the many reasons why homeowners are choosing to build and renovate their homes into open concept living spaces for their families to enjoy.
Open Concept Spaces Simplify Your Home Design for Many Uses
An open concept living space is a perfect way to blend the two most essential spaces of your home into a single functional space for your family. While open concept spaces often include a kitchen and living room combined into a single room, many families are now incorporating even more into their open concept space. This open concept space includes not only the kitchen and living room, but also a workspace, an entertainment space, and even a walk-in foyer. With this, your family can enjoy a single open living space to talk, eat, and entertain guests on the same level in a single large room.
Open Concept Spaces Incorporate Light into Your Floorplan
Apart from a large space for multiple uses and activities, another appealing characteristic of an open concept space is the amount of light incorporated into a room without smaller spaces and walls in between. By opening up a single space, natural light becomes a significant part of the room. This incorporation of light has become both a favored design element as well as a way to connect to your outdoor space by making the natural light a part of your home.
Open Concept Spaces Enable You to Entertain in a Single Space
An open concept space is also perfect for holiday entertaining throughout the year. With a single open space to entertain in, everyone in your house can gather in a single comfortable space. This type of floorplan allows you to enjoy the company of all of your guests without being split between the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Eat, socialize, and have fun with your guests in an open space that shares your living room and kitchen. Additional elements such as breakfast bars and island seating are perfect for accommodating a large number of guests beyond a simple dining room table. When you are not entertaining, enjoy these smaller additions for everyday uses such as informal dining or enjoying time in the kitchen with your family.
