For those instances where a widely open floor plan just doesn’t make sense or look well, it’s certainly not a bad idea to incorporate some sort of design elements that will resemble walls for you. Just be sure that they lean more toward Swiss cheese (plenty of visual “holes” and gaps) than toward a thick slice of cheddar. Leaving the top third of the vertical plane empty also helps to maintain a feeling of openness while still defining the smaller spaces.

Once in place, hot water radiant heating tubing can be covered up with most types of flooring, although carpet isn’t ideal due to its insulative qualities, which end up counteracting the whole heating idea. Although the upfront installation costs are more, hot water radiant heating is the most popular and cost-effective way to heat a whole house – this system can be up to 30% more efficient than forced-air heating.

Open floor plans generally work best in “homes with less square footage – sometimes out of necessity – while larger homes have more leeway to work with when integrating great rooms into a floor plan”. Spacious homes that have fewer walls are the layout du jour; let’s consider their benefits.

One way to achieve an opened up look in any room in the house (even the kitchen!) is to make larger pieces of furniture or even the architecture itself incorporate legginess. This allows our eyes to travel above, around, and under even the largest of elements, thus maximizing the sense of openness.

The floor can become the focal point of your dining room if, for example, you choose a type of marble with rich veining and pronounced color contrasts. To make it even more eye-catching, consider a random pattern such as displayed here.

Compared to bathrooms where the humidity is high, hallways don’t really present damaging conditions and are a suitable environment for marble.

While you immediately feel the hot air blowing from a conventional forced-air heating system, an underfloor heating system takes a bit longer to warm up. (Once running, of course, the underfloor heat is more consistent and effective.)

Because homeowners don’t need to worry about stereotypically cold flooring surfaces (think tile, slate, or concrete) with and underfloor heating system, they can choose those materials with very low VOC emissions. Additionally, underfloor heating helps with moisture control and inhibits mold and bacteria growth. Studies have shown underfloor heating to be a benefit to combatting many common household allergens.
