If you walk into any older home, you will see bulky walls, dim rooms, and layouts that do not leave much open space. But these kinds of floor plans have become a thing of the past. These days, you see the concept of an open floor plan, where the idea is that the rooms flow effortlessly from one to the other without being compartmentalized by walls. If this is the sort of space that sounds appealing to you, you may have the advantage of several benefits from this kind of living space. Read on to find out what the top benefits of an open floor plan are.

1.	A more spacious feel. One of the biggest reasons that most home buyers prefer an open concept floor plan is because it gives the general feeling of having more square footage. The light and the flow of air is more unobstructed and makes the home feel bigger.

2.	More family time. Since most homes with open floorplans may come with big family rooms or rooms that flow into each other without walls, interaction with family members becomes easier. So you may end up spending more time with your family rather than cooped up in a separate room. 

3.	Better safety. Because of added visibility and better lines of sight, safety is increased in a home with an open floor plan. For example, mom and dad can cook in the kitchen while also keeping an eye on the kids while they play or watch TV in the family room. Any unfortunate incidents like a fire or an intruder are also more visible in an open concept floor plan.

4.	Added resale value. Many people thought that the concept of an open floor plan would be a short-lived trend. But it has stood the test of time since the early 90s when it was first introduced. Because this trend has now become a norm, it can add substantial resale value to your home. Many new homes offer open concept floor plans such as Eighty Seven Park in Miami, Florida. This fantastic new construction located on the edge of Parkland and Atlantic Ocean, bring the outdoors inside with a harmonious blend of a simple architectural design that blends well with the surrounding natural environment. 

5.	A healthier environment. Luxury homes such as the Eighty Seven Park condos for sale utilize an open floor plan to create a connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces by having balconies and verandas. Visual barriers are also eliminated by using floor to ceiling glass and natural flooring. Not only does this lend beauty and elegance to the homes, they also bring more sunlight into the home and allow great views of your outdoor landscape. Being so close to the natural environment makes for a healthier living space where you enjoy fresh air and sunlight rather than being surrounded by artificial lights and air-conditioning. Not only can this do wonders for your overall health, it can also work wonders for your electricity bill!

6.	Great for entertainment. An open layout of your home makes entertaining guests not only easier, but also more enjoyable. Rather than feeling left out while cooking in the kitchen, you can socialize with your guests if your kitchen flows into the living room or other spaces in your home. Being able to see your guests or hear them and be a part of the conversation allows you to enjoy the gathering and not feel that you are isolated as the host. So even if that lasagna has five more minutes in the oven, you can use the time to talk to your guests.
