Open Floor Plan Concept: Meeting Today’s Market Preferences
Why have an open floor plan home? Check out its pros and cons.

Open floor plans have become the norm in American architecture since the 1950s when the post-war baby boom changed how everyday American families functioned. Kitchens that used to be in the back of the house came forward as an entertainment center, and entryways broke down their walls. Open floor plans are still highly desirable today for many reasons.  Check out the benefits below.

Open Floor Plan Pros

An open floor plan combines two or three of a home’s common rooms, mainly the dining room, living room, and kitchen. One major advantage of connecting these spaces is that it allows one to entertain. Friends and family flock to where the food is; naturally, that would be the kitchen. Breaking down the walls allows people to talk across the rooms.

Visibility is another pro of this design. Parents can more easily keep an eye on their kids from the kitchen. If you are caring for an elderly parent, an open layout is also beneficial in this way. 

An open space itself has several advantages. With fewer walls, more natural light spreads from room to room, and often, this layout is facilitated by a vaulted ceiling in at least one of the areas, a highly desirable feature. Because of the open floor plan’s popularity, it has a higher property value as well. Open floor plans deconstruct small, cut-off rooms and give a home a luxurious sense of space and loftiness
