One of the many benefits of building your own home is the ability of choosing specifications that accurately fit your lifestyle and your family. Trends can easily dominate in any industry, however, the open floor plan has proven quite popular amongst homebuilders and homeowners for several years. This popularity has allowed the open floor plan concept to evolve from novelty to a constant demand, as families have discovered the appeal and benefit of having an open layout within their homes. Some things to consider when choosing an open floor plan for your home:

  1.      It brightens your living space: The open concept offers amazing natural light. With large, spacious rooms, the homeowner makes the most of any windows throughout the home. This design offers a continuous and boundless scope of light which travels throughout the living space. Utilizing natural light offers the opportunity of reducing utility costs. Most people have an affection of natural lighting. Natural light eases eye strain and directly impacts productivity and the overall well-being of each person in the home.
  2.      It provides more usable space: Having an open spacious area as the focal point of your home, offers greater synergy amongst family members. It expands the living area, enabling family members interaction with one another, while participating in different activities. It also allows greater traffic flow while entertaining. Family and friends are able to move more freely while still participating in any happenings within the room. An open floor plan provides more usable space in less square footage by omitting walls as barriers within the home, which can hinder communication. This minimizes the appearance and feel of small rooms and opens the home up to feel spacious and more accommodating.
  3.      Decorating becomes effortless: Having one large area to decorate is much easier than several separate, smaller rooms. Functional spaces can be isolated by furniture arrangement, and easily relocated upon demand. Large area rugs or specialty lighting can define an area, while enabling the rest of the room to retain its own personality.
  4.      It increases the resale value: The open floorplan has proven highly desirable amongst homebuyers. What started out as a retro trend has evolved into a millennial standard in the housing industry. Homebuyers are evading the exemplary tradition of each room being encompassed inside four dividers. The open, airy design is what homebuyers seek and adore, which dramatically increases the resale value.

Open concept living enables the usefulness of a few rooms to be consolidated into one roomy region, which permits taking the most advantage of the home’s square footage.
