Design Tips for Open Floor Plans. Define spaces with furniture, rugs and lighting. Use Furnishings and Lighting to Define Areas. Carve out separate functional spaces using furniture. For example, place a sofa backed with a console table outside the kitchen to delineate the start of the living room. Further define the living room by placing a rug in the center of that space. Lighting also helps to define different parts of a room. Anchor a dining table with a chandelier, or place a large ceiling fan in the center of the living space.
For example, Plan 890-1, shown above and in the lead image, provides a small, easily maintained home in only 800 square feet yet lives large due to the many porches that extend the interior space outdoors. Another plan type that we’ll see more of is the classic Florida Split Plan, as in Plan 481-5, shown below. With a large group gathering area between owner and guest bedroom areas, resident Boomers can have their children and grandchildren visit for as long as they want without everyone being on top of each other. A nice feature of this type of plan is the ability to close off the guest bedrooms from the rest of the house. All it takes is a pocket door in the right location to give each, owner and guest, their own private area.
