The Benefits Of Open Floor Plans

Posted by Baywood Blog Team

Open floor plans have become the new standard of home designs. An open floor plan creates a nice, uninterrupted flow through your home and creates a lot of space and versatility in the main rooms of your house. Many of the homes of Baywood Greens offer open floor plans, allowing you to do what you want with your new home easily.

However, if you haven’t lived with an open floor plan before, you may have trouble deciding the best way to use the space. We have some tips that will help you get the most out of the space in your beautiful new Baywood Greens home!

Let’s Have A Party: One of the reasons you’ll love an open floor plan is when you’re entertaining friends and family. There’s lots of open space for guests to move about in and the room is flexible enough to accommodate groups of any size. The home models at Baywood Greens have great open living and dining spaces that lead into the kitchen, making it ideal for hosting!

Finding Your Rooms: While there are many things to love about an open floor plan, some may find it difficult to plan out each area. The first thing you should do is determine where one room stops and another starts. An easy way to do this is to add rugs to certain areas to define the space. Overhead lighting is another great way to separate rooms. For example, a chandelier would look great in your dining room area! 

Decorating: While the lack of walls means that you will have more space to move around, it also means that you’re going to have to get creative with your furniture. You’re going to have the backs of your furniture exposed! Try using low bookcases or side tables placed against the couch to hide your furniture backs.

Using Your Space Wisely: With an open floor plan, you’ll have a lot of opportunity to plan out your rooms exactly how you want them. Whether you want to include built-in storage items such as storage ottomans and dual-purpose furniture or you want to bring to life the rooms you’ve always wanted such as a study or breakfast nook, an open floor plan will give you everything you’re looking for!
