You have undoubtedly heard of this kind of custom home floor plan. Spacious, open-spaced rooms, sprawling from one side of the house to the other unencumbered by any walls or doors. It’s an open-concept house, and homeowners love the way that it opens up even smaller sized homes. People buying new custom homes are asking builders to create open-concept houses that bring air and light into the entire home. Here are some of the top four reasons people love this floorplan in their custom homes.
Much More Living Space
Fewer walls mean a lot more space to move around – and less wasted space too. Instead of confining hallways and separation between each room (which can take up lots of space), open-concept custom homes flow from one spot to the next without any division. There are many more options to add in and move around furniture or statement pieces. You can easily connect your indoor living space to your outdoor area as well.
Better Air Flow and Lighting
Open-concept custom homes often seem lighter and airier than floor plans with separated rooms. This makes sense. Light can travel from one side of the house to the next without any obstruction. This also impacts airflow and temperature. Breezes can move from one side of the home to the next, improving the flow of air across your house.
Easier to Entertain Big Groups
Is there anything worse than being trapped inside the kitchen away from the action during a live party? Or having a group of people crowd around in one room to keep the conversation going? Open-concept custom homes create interconnected spaces without any barriers, so your guests can flow from one room to another without feeling disconnected. Plus, hosts can also move from one area to another, making entertaining fun instead of a hassle.
Improves Energy Efficiency
This aspect goes way beyond aesthetics. Wide-open areas are easier to cool and heat, which cuts down on energy bills and utilities during hot and cold months. The abundance of natural lighting also cuts back down on energy bills. Robin Ford Builders can build you a home that is energy efficient, as we are a qualified Indoor AirPLUS builder!
