Designing your home is a stressful but fun process. There are so many styles and trends that it might seem like an endless task, but as you start deciding on specific things, you began to narrow down your style. And we want your home to be perfect! So we always listen to what our clients want, and we suggest classic styles and current trends.
One of the most popular styles when it comes to home design is an open floor plan. An open floor plan is a layout with one or more open spaces. The open spaces flow into one another usually combining the kitchen, living room and dining room.
So why consider this layout? Aside from being trendy, it has great benefits!
The open space layout allows for more natural lighting. The removal of the walls allows for the light to reach more places. This can help you save money on your energy bills.
This layout will also make your home feel big! Eliminating walls, corners and shadows will help in making it seem like a bigger home than it is. It is a more affordable way to have a “bigger home” feel.
Being able to see everything that goes on in your living room, dining room and kitchen is a good advantage. You can always keep an eye on the kids. You could be cooking, and your kids could be in the living room watching TV, and you won’t have to worry about running back and forth from the kitchen to the living room.
The open floor plan allows for more space for entertainment. You usually don’t think of the kitchen as a place to host guests, but if the rooms flow together, then it’s natural to have people in every room. Overcrowding becomes an issue when walls are involved. With an open floor plan, you will have people gathering and chatting with no issues.
An open floor plan is just one layout of many! At Republic Home Builders we will work with you and help you design the home of your dreams with any layout and style.
