When building a modern style house, the first thing to do is to get a fix on how many people will live in the house. Are you going to build it for your family. If so, do you need large spaces like terraces, gardens or a front yard that can be used for socializing or for your children to play. Alternatively, do you want a small modern apartment or a cosy prefabricated house that is perfect for two people. These become even more relevant depending on where you plan to build your house.
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.
