“Open floor plans; the good and bad of this trend”
January 8th, 2014 by weblog

One of the trends for 2014, as you saw in this post (Architecture trends for 2014: what to expect in home design) is to have an open floor plans. That means a home with fewer divisions and a little bit of a  minimalist style.

You have to agree that a house with a open layout is more practical and gives a fresh look that you can’t match, but this kind of design also has its downsides.

Today, “Home Design Ideas” will share with you good and bad consequences of having an open floor plan.You will also see some fantastic open plan layouts of stylish and modern homes. Get inspired and see if an open floor plan is the thing for you.

Pros of open floor plans:

Easy to see if your house needs proper cleaning

With an open area you are able to find out, more easily, the things you need to clean in order to have everything tidy. You will spot exactly want you want to remove if a surprise guest arrives unexpectedly.

Easy to keep an eye on the kids

If you have kids, you know that they are magicians. One second they are quiet and near us and then, just when you thinks that you have everything under control, they are at the other side of room breaking everything ( this happens). An open floor plan ables you to see more of your home.

Your house will be full of natural light

Less walls mean that natural light from the windows can flow easily through your home. Your home will feel more spacious and, in the end, you light bill will be a little bit lower.

Cons of open floor plans:

Less privacy

An open plan floor can result in less privacy. Imagine that you’re hosting a party but, at some, point, you need to get away from the crowd. At an open house your only options are the bathroom or your bedroom. There’s no more rooms to escape from that boring conversation.

You might have more noise

Just like light, sound will travel through your entire house. And that might be a problem. If your kids are watching TV (loud as usual) in the living room and you need to make an important call in the kitchen…you might have some troubles to do it.

Everything is at display

An open house makes easy to see things that you need to clean when a surprise guest arrives unexpectedly, but that also means that if you have some dirty dishes he/she will probably see them, even if he/she is in the living room. Your belongings will also be more detectable for anyone who wants to see what you’ve got.
