Hello again everyone! Sue Ann had a great blog on open concept floor plans a couple of days ago. It sent my mind into overdrive from conversations I have had myself about the pro’s and con’s. I have spoken to people who were sort of stuck with open concept and hate it, and those stuck with closed in spaces and they hate that.
On closed spaces, mirrors are your friends, among other things I have learned. For this blog though, I want to give some tips that I have used and will be using with open concept floor plans that still need some boundaries and definition without adding walls.
I love the open concept that Rattlesnake has. It is perfect in fitting with the “one room farmhouse” feel and theme out there without actually being a one-room farmhouse. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are one big room now.
This is lovely to me, but I still want there to be enough definition so that “No eating in the living room!” and “No electronics in the dining room!” can be clearly defined. How can this be managed without walls though. That’s the trick! Let’s break down what a wall is in a house in terms of open and closed concept, shall we?
