Whether you prefer open or traditional floor plans, there is a significant amount of detail and hard work that goes into ensuring the designs best fit your lifestyle. We at Cardano-Goodson can help relieve some of that hard work with our excellent floor plans that can be customized to your liking. When building or renovating a home, picking an open or traditional floor plan can be difficult. Here are some pros and cons to help you determine which you like better!
An open floor plan has a large single living space functioning as multiple rooms. One example would be a shared space between the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Open floor plans have been exceptionally popular over the past few years because they are great for entertaining. When guests are in the living room, you can still be joined in the conversations while you are in the kitchen. Additionally, open floor plans increase your views outside, as well as the natural light. This can make your living space feel more open and inviting. They are also great for keeping an eye on everyone, like your children. On the other hand, sound travels a lot further and there can be limited privacy between rooms in this type of floor plan.
A traditional floor plan is having smaller sized rooms that can provide privacy. These rooms are also easier to clean and keep organized. Since they have more walls, they are great for adding more art work so you can make your home more unique. With a traditional floor plan noise does not travel as far unlike in an open floor plan. Lastly, with a traditional floor plan you can have more specialty rooms, as in a home office or craft room. In contrast, traditional floor plans can feel closed off and very separated. If you like being able to see your friends and family while you are in another room than an open floor plan is better for you. Traditional floor plans are also becoming a little dated. A great deal of newer homes are becoming open floor plans because they are more inviting and welcoming than a traditional floor plan, so if you want to stay more with the trend an open floor plan is the better way to go.
