benefits of an open floor planAt Camelot Homes, we understand that the floor plan is key to creating your perfect new custom home. Floor plans help direct the flow of traffic, influence how much time is spent in certain rooms and can even make a small space feel grand.

When building your custom home, you will need to decide between a closed and compartmentalized floor plan or an open floor plan. For a luxury home, the open concept offers several benefits.

Here are the top five:

1. Creates Unrestricted Sight Lines

For decades, all homes featured closed floor plans. The living room was separate from the dining room, which was separate from the kitchen. This made it difficult for a parent to supervise children in the living room while preparing meals and often made the home feel more confined. An open floor plan for the main living space creates unrestricted sight lines. If you are working at the kitchen counter, you can watch the kids playing in the family room while talking to a family member or friend sitting at the dining table.

2. Highlights Special Features

With an open concept, the unrestricted sight lines make it easy to showcase your home’s special features. This is perfect for drawing attention to a custom fireplace, a wall of beautiful built-ins or an exquisite piece of art.

3. Ideal for Entertaining

The open floor plan means no one is left out when entertaining. You and your guests can easily mingle and move between the living room and other spaces with an open design. An open concept also improves the flow between indoor and outdoor living spaces.

4. Provides Beautiful Views

Eliminating the walls that compartmentalize a home offers better views of the beautiful Arizona mountains and scenery. Windows placed in the right area and without barriers will allow you to enjoy the view from multiple spots, not just one room. This also allows more natural light to shine through your home.

5. Creates a Spacious Feel

Taking down a wall typically creates a more spacious feel. This is why many older homes are renovated. Going from a closed floor plan to an open one can create a roomy feel in even the smallest of spaces.
