The Open Floor Plan Is Not Dead
Remember when everyone was obsessed with the open floor plan? Over the past decade or so we’ve seen home shoppers with budgets large and small coveting a layout with a seamless flow among the kitchen, dining, and living spaces.

With working and schooling from home as the new normal, people are placing a higher premium on floor plans that offer privacy. That’s why, for the past year, homeowners living in an open floor plan have started second-guessing their layout.
But our desire for delineated spaces doesn’t necessarily mean the open floor plan is dead.
