Whether you’ve seen it on an episode of your favorite home renovation show, read about it in a design magazine, or seen it up close at an open house, there’s no denying that the concept of open floor plan house plans is the hottest must-have design trend for any new home today. It’s not surprising, considering the amazing benefits that come from opening up the living areas in a house to create an entirely new way to enjoy your home.

 

One of the biggest issues with many traditional style homes is that so much of the floor space is eaten up by hallways—which is especially true in smaller houses that don’t have much square footage to begin with. Instead of sacrificing what can amount to hundreds of square feet to areas that are only used to walk from one room to the next, open floor plan home plans tear down those walls and centralize the living room, dining room, and kitchen into one unified, connected Great Room. This eliminates the separation for those three important areas and transforms the ground floor of the home into a place where function and form combine, allowing everyone to interact in a more casual and engaging fashion. Gone are old-fashioned house plan layouts with narrow passageways, small rooms, and underused areas like formal sitting rooms, cramped kitchens, and enclosed formal dining rooms.

 

This type of open concept layout is great for anyone who loves to entertain because it promotes uninterrupted conversation among guests and hosts and doesn’t cut anyone off from the fun at any point. No more missing out on events because you’re stuck in the kitchen or forced to delay dinner because only one person can prepare food at a time.

 

An open floor plan makes the eating, relaxing, and food-preparation areas one seamless space so that everyone can join in the activities. This is also a popular layout for families, as it allows parents and children to hang out in the same spaces, rather than leaving one parent in the kitchen cooking and cleaning while the kids sit in front of the television or just retreat to their rooms.
