During the middle of the 1900s, builders recognized the efficiency of combining spaces within a home to decrease the required square footage. More usable space could be squeezed into the same amount of, or less, square footage when an open layout was used. Open floor plans actually began as an economical option, although they have morphed today into a preferred way of living.
Create long views. Always try to line windows up on doorways as you enter a room, or arrange doors so that you can see a long way diagonally across a plan. This will help enlarge a small house.
