Open layouts are becoming more and more popular in modern homes as they give the illusion of a bigger space, provide more natural sunlight and outdoor views, and create a more safe and social environment! The love for an open floor plan has increased in popularity and there are lots of benefits to choosing this type of floor plan for your new home. The spacious layout opens up the room and blends multiple spaces together between the kitchen, dining, and living room great for entertaining and being around family and friends.
Here are 3 additional benefits to having an open floor plan!
- Works better for entertainment: If you like to entertain and host parties this is the perfect floor plan for you. While your guests are mingling even if you aren’t in the direct room you can still interact with everyone. The island can be used as the focal piece to gather around all your family and friends while you prepare the food.
- Natural Lighting: With all the open space and windows in the home your house attracts more natural lighting. This is helpful because you are using your electricity less which could save you on your energy bill! Also, by eliminating extra interior walls to open up the space, the windows will bring more sunlight into your home and give you a better view of your outdoor landscape.
- Safer for kids: Rather you have small children or older ones this floor plan allots for extra space for the kids to hang out and for you to keep an eye on them. This saves on the amount of time hopefully you will have to call out to your little ones over and over (hopefully)!
