Open floor plans brighten the space. Where a traditional kitchen might be a hole tucked away in a windowless corner of the home, an open concept kitchen will likely connect it to the dining and living rooms and, consequently, windows. Natural light is always a bright boost to any room.
Modern architects like to look at their house designs as machines that perform, and this is an invaluable concept to employ when you are building your house. Modern houses have larger concentrations of neutral colours such as cool whites, beige, light grey and cream, but it is all right to have few splashes of bright or flashy colours, so long as they do not dominate the design.
Stock house plans are the most common blueprint package on the plan selling market. Also referred to as designer house plans, they generally carry enough information to be considered a permit ready set. In addition to the normal things included in the home builder plan set, more construction details are added.
Open floor plans improve the efficiency of usable space. Living rooms are all too often a waste of space, or at least they can feel that way due to lack of real use in day to day life. But with an open floor plan, the great room concept transfers some of lifes activities from the crowded kitchen countertops into the visually now connected living room.
