6 inspirational ideas for an open floor interior style
- Hide the entryways
It would be best to strategically hide all passageways leading away from the open floor layout. It may not be possible in many generic open floor plans, but you can see below how organically it can be led. Just place a subtle doorway where the actual lobby would have been, and hide the large circulation space so that the space outside can live up to the potential of a true open floor without any visual hindrances.
- Transparent furniture style
While an actual transparent furniture set may have been a fine part of a very active imagination in the past, today it is actually possible. It can make an open floor layout even more visually gripping and spacious without compromising the functionality. It is an avant-garde idea that may not be fully embraced yet, but definitely checks out the funky contemporary scale.
- Windows and terraces
Embellishing the open floor layout with terraces and French windows is another way to bring about a visual enhancement in the interior design. Just look at the image below – the addition of these elements makes the space seem larger than it already is.
- Visual adjustment
A drastic change in material palate can cause a bit of a tonal dissonance within the interior. A good way to handle that in an open floor setting is to lemmatize the change of material to the floor, so that it does not create any psychological barriers within the openness of the space.
Create small alcoves within the same space to categorize all the typologies of the area. These alcoves do not have to be very defined – just a small space within the living room itself, embraced by small protrusions from the walls in order to lightly frame the space. If you look at the image below, you will see how it can be done properly; the dining area is framed by two short shelves that come forth from the wall, but do not hinder the space from being a part of the open floor living are itself.
- Sleek and swanky
High gloss laminations have a way with enhancing the contemporary vibe of the space – and when you use such machinations in a fairly open floor layout it has the added effect of making the space seem even larger than it already is. As demonstrated in the picture below, the high gloss application has enhanced the visual quality of the contemporary style theme itself.
