7 reasons to emulate an open floor plan

An open floor planning became a trend when the simple wall-to-wall and wall-on-wall systems became too improbable for the new high rise apartment trend. Since apartments are smaller in square footage than most suburban homes – which aren’t much better off themselves – the designers came up with the open floor planning, in which there was more utilization of space and less barriers. Today we will be discussing 7 reasons to emulate an open floor plan.

  1. Visual transparency

One of the foremost reasons to go for an open floor plan in your new home or apartment is to emulate the element of visual transparency. The original wall to wall system was not only confining, but also pretty drab. With an open floor or even a semi-open floor planning system, you can now create a visual transparency within your home that will make it look open and capacious. There would be no barrier of solid walls between already small spaces to make it seem confined and problematic.

  1. Wider opportunities for décor

Within the context of interior designing, an open floor plan provides many more opportunities for a good design and décor than a close walled one. Even if you feel the inklings of an agoraphobia, there is always partial distinction by CNC cut screens and more. The overall ambiance of an open floor plan can be alluring in their openness and that is something both the client and the designer can appreciate.

  1. Space constraints

Open floor planning is a goof way to deal with space constraints without the actual dimensions of the area seeming too cramped. If you look closely at the image below, you will notice the narrow dimensions of the living come dining room. Now image if there had been any kind of a physical barrier between the spaces; it would have automatically shrunk in a psychological way.

  1. Homogeneity

Open floor planning can create a sense of wholesomeness to the entire interior setting. The idea of open floor planning is to create a unanimous front for all design concepts in an almost singular space. This can make for a holistic interior design experience.

  1. Capacious

A general capaciousness within a small amount of space can be hard to achieve with the wall to wall construction system. But an open floor plan can make the entire space seem inherently capacious with the help of a great interior design.

  1. Connections

An open floor plan can create undaunting and user friendly connections or circulation paths within a limited amount of space. These help make the space look interesting and beautiful.

  1. Levels

Even though there is no physical distinction in a space, the open floor plan can generally cater to psychological segregation between the spaces via levels, different ceiling designs and floor patterns.
