Big Reasons Homeowners Love Open Floor Plans

Open Floor Plan Focal Point

Whether you’re shopping for a new home, building one, or renovating, consider open floor plans. There are so many advantages, including ease of entertaining. Read on to discover why these plans remain so popular year after year.

In the center of any open floor plan home is the kitchen. Whether you’re a gourmet cook or love to gather the kids to make cookies – having an open space makes any activity more enjoyable.

If you have an older home, you’d like to remodel  – start here. Consult with your contractor to see which non-load bearing walls they would suggest removing.

In this type of plan, the kitchen can open into the dining room, casual cafe nook, and gathering room. Consider adding one or even two islands if you have space. These islands add extra seating, but they’re also great for meal prep and homework.

When you love to cook and visit with your guests; having a kitchen that isn’t cut off is a dream.

And if you have young children, it’s easier to keep an eye on them while preparing dinner.

Beautiful Gathering Rooms

In addition to the kitchen, an open gathering room is an in-demand feature. And one of the beautiful things about this room is that it can function for both guests and family as a warm and welcoming space to celebrate life’s events.

And if you love to entertain outside, include large windows, sliders, and French doors leading into the backyard. Design your outside environment to complement the inside and vice versa. Having an open plan is a great way to highlight your yard, especially if you have a pool. And, when you consider an open floor plan house, don’t forget to include private spaces. Everyone needs their own space to rest and relax. Make sure your list contains a study or home office, separate media room, master suite, and even an in-home gym. Modern floor plans take into account different lifestyles, multi-generational families, and entertaining preferences. So make your wish list and start dreaming!
