Open floor plans are the biggest rage right now. All over social media, we see combined kitchen and dining rooms, or one large space for the kitchen, dining and living area. Older homes with separated spaces are seeing wall knocked down and beams taken apart, all to accommodate this growing trend. It makes the space feel larger, open and more modern.
However, is it truly worth it? Is it a good idea? Or one that only looks good but doesn't function well? Let's dive into the pros and cons of open spaces today!
Improved Traffic Flow
People can move through a space unhindered. Running short on time and need to check on something in the kitchen, while making sure the dining table is set up correctly? An open concept will allow you to move with efficiency and ease.
Improved Sociability and Communication
Gone are the days of yelling at the walls, hoping that your spouse will hear you and yell something muffled back. With an open concept, you can talk with ease across rooms.
