If you’ve decided to start your new construction home search, you’ve made a great decision. It’s an exciting time when you get to choose the right floor plan for you. Value Build Homes knows that your floor plan decision depends on how you use your home and how it fits with your lifestyle. From where rooms are located in relation to each other, to size and shape, every part can affect your living experience, which is why it’s important to know what you really want. We offer a variety of plans, but we are known for our open floor plans. Let’s review the benefits!

What Are Open Floor Plans?

Traditional floor plans have clearly defined rooms that are separated by walls and doors. Typically seen in older homes, the traditional plan offers more privacy, peace and quiet. But walls and doors make it harder for sunlight to brighten things, and the home may seem less spacious. This layout may also be less accessible for people who have wheelchairs or other mobility aids.

Open concept floor plans eliminate barriers for an open, airy feel. In its simplest terms, an open floor plan combines two or more rooms that are usually divided with a wall/permanent divider. In many homes today, that may mean a combined kitchen, dining room and living room, or perhaps a rec room with a half wall that creates two separate but open spaces. 

The open floor plan trend is a modern evolution, the result of smaller homes, no servants, more central heating, and newer construction methods. Over the last century, a more relaxed approach to entertaining and everyday living also made formal rooms obsolete.   

6 Benefits of Open Concept Floor Plans 

  1. Natural Light & Better Views. Open floor plans also allow more natural light to flow into spaces. The sun can provide a scenic background, or brighten a room without having to turn on the lights. Larger windows mean you can see what’s happening outside, too! 
  2. Flexibility & Functionality. The open floor plan makes a home feel larger, and gives more flexibility with furniture arrangements. A floor plan that combines the kitchen and living space allows you to be part of the action, whether that means preparing food, conversing with guests, or keeping an eye on the kids. 
  3. Easier Interaction. Whether you’ve got little ones (or furry friends) that like to get into things, or you just like to be able to chat without yelling through walls, open floor plan homes allow you to keep tabs on what’s happening all over.
  4. Room for Entertaining. The open concept makes socializing much easier, allowing conversation across rooms. The expanded space also means it’s easy to add seating for guests while leaving room for everyone to move around without feeling crowded or imposing on the host’s kitchen space.
  5. More Modern. The open floor plan fits with today’s relaxed, informal lifestyles. For example, few families require a formal dining room, so a dining area that’s part of the open kitchen and great room is far more practical. Fewer walls also mean more space for furniture, electronics, displays & collections, and various other modern amenities.
  6. Improved Value. Depending on its location, market, and architectural style, an open floor plan home may have an advantage when it comes to resale. The open concept has been increasing in popularity. In fact, the majority of buyers expect it, making an open floor plan more sellable. Since open floor plans are so popular, their value has increased.
