Architecture / June 15, 2018 /
The open concept layout is relatively new to the world of residential design. Traditionally, homes were designed and built to accommodate different rooms for different functions. Each room was assigned its distinct function, the kitchen was for cooking, the dining room was for eating, and the living room was for gathering, entertaining, or relaxing, and that was that.
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.
