Open floor plans facilitate entertaining. Open floor plans, with their inherent flow capacity, make entertaining both easier and more enjoyable. Guests are free to chat with each other and the cook at the same time. Visitors can serve themselves and mingle without the constraints of walls blocking the action.
To adjust the land properly, the designer creates a grading plan to show how the topography will change to accommodate the building design. In other words, the contours are redrawn to remove soil, cut existing contour, or add soil, fill existing contour.
Open floor plans increase social interaction. Whoever is in the kitchen doing the cooking or the post meal cleanup, can still get the job done while interacting with everyone else in the other rooms. This helps the kitchen person to feel less like a slave and more a part of the action.
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.
