If you are planning out the layout you would like for a home you want to have custom built for you, then you are likely asking yourself a lot of questions regarding the design you want. One thing you may be trying to decide is how you are going to want to deal with the design of the living room, dining area, and kitchen. Since this is your chance to have your dream home, you should be sure you make the right choices. There are a lot of great things that come with keeping these areas connected with a more open floorplan. Therefore, you need to decide whether you are going to want an open floorplan with these areas connected and considering the following benefits may help you make your decision.
You can entertain many people in comfort
If you choose to have your custom home built with a large and open floorplan where the living space, the dining area, and the kitchen are all connected to one another, then your entire dinner party can be more enjoyable. You won't feel as if you are missing out on a lot of the great conversations when you are out in the kitchen preparing the meal.
Not only will you enjoy being able to interact with everyone even when you are cooking, but your guests will also like being able to visit with everyone in each area. When people go to dinner parties in homes where there are separate areas, the parties usually end up with small groups of people separating off from the others. This isn't always out of their desires to separate, but because the layout of the home isn't designed in a way that lets your guests enjoy everyone else's company from room to room. Your open floor plan can make for a more inclusive and entertaining party venue.
You can enjoy fantastic decorating options
A large and open floorplan also gives you a wonderful area to have fun decorating. You can incorporate elements from one area into the next and then the next. You can even have a great time figuring out how to combine three sections you choose to decorate with different themes by pulling from the color scheme or other elements to give a nice flow. Or, you can choose to have everything decorated in the same theme. There is no end to the various ways you can transform a space like this into an amazing home.
Once you decide on the type of design you want for your custom home, you'll be one step closer to having that dream home you've always hoped to have for yourself and your family to live in.
