Will the Open Floor Plan Remain Popular for the Foreseeable Future?

Open Floor Plan

When you make the decision to remodel your home, you often don't want to make rash decisions that will only make you happy for the short-term. You want to ensure that they not only make you content, but that they are also trendy design choices. One reason for this is because you never know what the future holds. What happens if you decide to move (or if you need to move)? Will the home sell easily or will the remodeling/design choices that you have chosen cause the home to stay on the market forever?

Today Is Different

Right now, one of the most popular remodel trends is the open floor plan. Years ago, homes weren't designed with functionally and appearance in mind. Instead, they were designed so that there were rooms for certain activities. The dining room is no longer the room where only eating takes place, as the kids can also do their homework there. Families now congregate and socialize in the kitchen - something that would have never been accepted before.

Changes in Lifestyles

Open floor plans are popular for today's families and will continue to be so because of the active lifestyles that today's families have. Whether one of the parents is working out on the elliptical or to an exercise DVD or the kids are playing a Wii game, the family can benefit from an open floor plan in the living area. In many cases, open floor plans consist of large windows. These will allow parents to keep an eye on extremely active kiddos that like to practice their soccer skills or stay fit for gymnastics outside.

Aging in Place

Whether you want to think about it or not, you will eventually get older. Millennials don't tend to think about it, but the time will come. Luckily, open floor plans ensure that there are fewer doors that you have to deal with when that time does come, which means less pain on your fingers and wrists that will develop arthritis. Plus, open spaces mean there is less of a risk of falls. So, if you intend on remaining in your home for years to come, then an open floor plan is something to consider. Even if you end up moving at some point, it is a good selling point.
