Today’s homeowners are looking for different things than what was popular ten years ago. One of the key trends that we see in many of our home renovation projects is open-concept floor plans. There are several reasons open floor plans continue to be extremely popular, a few of which we’ll review in this blog. If you have questions about whether an open floor plan could work in your home, feel free to reach out to us today.
Open-concept living areas can instantly make your home seem bigger. Most people spend significant time in their kitchen, living room, and dining room, so combining these areas can give you a larger space to enjoy.
Older homes have very confined floor plans that can make entertaining difficult. Open-concept spaces create open areas where people can mingle without any barriers. Let conversation move from room to room without the awkwardness of a compartmentalized floor plan.
Open-concept floor plans flow exceptionally well from one room to the next. This allows homeowners to better utilize every square inch of the space instead of having to deal with awkward hallways and walls that can make decorating difficult. Open-concept spaces also connect your outdoor and indoor spaces to give you an even more inviting area for entertaining.
Open floor plans allow more natural light to flow from one area to another. No longer will you have to rely on artificial lighting. Instead, you can leverage natural light to help brighten up any open space in your newly renovated home.
Homeowners want to be able to see themselves in a home they’re contemplating purchasing. With an open floor plan, it can be straightforward to visualize a new home’s appearance once furniture and other belongings are added to the new space. Because of this, homeowners are looking for more open-concept floor plans and will pay a premium for not having to embark on a lengthy home renovation.
