Open layouts are becoming more and more popular in modern homes as they give the feeling of a bigger space, provide more natural sunlight and outdoor views, and create a safer and more social environment! The spacious open layout opens up the room and blends multiple spaces together between the kitchen, dining, and living room which is perfect for entertaining and being around family and friends.
Here are 3 big 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 kitchen island can be used as the focal piece to gather around all your family and friends while you prepare food.
- Natural Lighting: All the open space and windows in the home attracts more natural lighting. This is helpful because you are using less electricity which can save you money on your energy bill each month! 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: Whether you have small children or older ones, an open floor plan allows extra space for the kids to hang out and for you to keep an eye on them. This makes it easier to keep track of everyone and make sure they are safe.
