Homes with open layouts have become some of the most popular and sought-after house plans available today. Open floor plans foster family togetherness, as well as increase your options when entertaining guests. By opting for larger combined spaces, the ins and outs of daily life - cooking, eating, and gathering together - become shared experiences. In addition, an open floor plan can make your home feel larger, even if the square footage is modest. By eliminating doorways and widening the passages to dining and living areas, you obtain a sense of spaciousness that divided rooms lack. In this way, even a smaller, more affordable house plan can offer the spaciousness you seek.
