Noise tends to travel in an open floor plan: For those who love to listen to their surround system televisions in the family room while the kids play in an adjacent room, talking on the phone could be a challenge. Open floor plans allows for visual connection and also allow for sound to travel easily. Remember this when considering if a floor plan is for your family.
Scope of Work. This is where a good plan is essential. If you are planning a major remodel, you will want some basic plans drawn up, preferably by a professional. You don't want to find out later that the wall you envisioned removing for a more open space is a critical weight-bearing wall. Similarly, you don't want to plan for electronic appliances and devices in an area where there are no outlets.
Sources of Financing. If one doesn't have the money, the inclination is not to do the home improvement. Cash, however, is not the only way to pay for a home improvement plan, you can also finance. If you find you don't have enough cash, you can use a home equity loan to finance the remodeling of your home. Try to identify additional forms of financing in case you need additional monies to complete the project. In the end, a home improvement project should add to the resale value of your home for it to be a sound purchase.
Assess how clean you keep your home, honestly: One of the pros of having an open floor plan is being able to visually connect living spaces in décor and aesthetics. The cons of this concept are if your family isn’t tidy, your entire home will always look this way. If your family leaves a trail of destruction in every room they touch, an open floor plan may not be for you.
