Tips To Make Open Floor Plans
Today’s homeowners now seem more familiar to open floor plans. To be certain, it cannot be separated from the rapid increase of the need of homes. At the same time, the availability of areas where new homes can be built is more and more limited. Consequently, homes get smaller, narrower, and simpler.
Open floor as becoming an integral element of lots of modern homes today, thus, cannot be just ignored its existence. To say the least, making the floor plan will be decisive in setting up the interior’s feel.
There are some tips to make open floor plans, such as:
- Deal the sight lines.
The dimensions of a house in comparison with those of another house often are not in line with the largeness of the interior that you may FEEL. Why can that happen? Why is in the same house size, one can feel that one is larger than another?
Sight lines are they to this matter. How many chambers do you like to build in your house? It is crucial to determine the division of rooms (how many rooms in the house will be) when building a house. And, in the spirit of space-saving, I have no doubt about the importance of minimizing the chambering. The fewer the chambers are the better it is in term of open plan of the floor.
Meanwhile, to calculate the sight lines is to deal with how many yards the farthest point is that you can directly see from a given spot in the house. In this case, the arrangement of the chambers becomes the biggest factor.
- Design the smoothest traffic.
In all houses, the traffic also has a big contribution to the successfulness of the making of the open floor plans. Traffic deals with whether or not you have a straight or smooth way to move from one area to another area inside the house. It is related to whether or not there is something blocking your way while going to a particular chamber in the house. Minimizing the barriers is a necessity in this sense.
- Deal with the privacy limit.
Carefulness is always needed when it comes to making open floor plans. You know, something that we cannot easily ignore about this matter is that we shouldn’t make anyone lose his or her privacy after living in a house with the open floor. There should be a privacy limit that will keep the balance of the use of the house.
- Place the windows properly.
Lastly, we also need to consider where the windows will be set up. You know, it deals with the lighting because the amount of natural light has a say in making a room feel larger or smaller. Good luck!
