The advantages of an open floor plan
More social Time – The person cooking or cleaning in the kitchen can have conversation with people in other areas of the home.
Keep an eye on the kids – Great rooms allow parent to cook and do other household chores while their kids play in the same area.
Increase views and light – The removal of interior walls allows sunlight from windows in the exterior walls to permeate throughout the house.
