The open floor plan is increasingly popular. All over the world, people are knocking down walls and turning their homes into one big open space. An open floor plan inspires togetherness and unity. Tearing down walls will also give you more space, which can be great in smaller homes. However, when you tear down a wall to turn many rooms into one big room, you have to think regarding the whole picture when you remodel. If you have one big room with three different types of flooring, you’re working against the whole concept of an open floor plan. To make your open floor home cohesive, you need uniform flooring throughout the home.
Hardwood floors for an open plan home
Most people don’t realize how their floors vary from room to room until they try to remodel their home. Remodeling your home to be an open floor plan requires you to think about how you will make the new open space feel harmonious throughout. A variety of different flooring materials and installation styles can make an open plan home feel disjointed and awkward. It will still feel like many different rooms, just without walls. It won’t feel good, and an open floor plan is about opening up your home and make everyone feel like one big unit.
Choose hardwood for the whole house
Obviously, we’re partial to hardwood flooring, but the durability and value of hardwood flooring make it the perfect choice for flooring for an open floor home. Extending your hardwood floors to the whole house to connect all the separate rooms into one open space will not only add value to your home regarding appeal and design, but it will give you the best return on your investment.
Extending hardwood flooring to the kitchen
One of the most important rooms in the home to open up to the rest of the home is the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and it shouldn’t be hidden away. However, kitchen flooring is often different from the flooring in your dining room, hallway, and living room. You may be skeptical about extending your hardwood floors from the living room to the kitchen, but with the right wood, the right installation, and the right finish there is no reason that you can’t have hardwood floors in the kitchen.
