Keep in mind that design elements with distinct verticality – whether or not they’re all that tall in reality – do a great deal to define the space surrounding them. These colorful, stackable drawers provide verticality and the subsequent definition of space but, because of their cut-out design, they maintain a sense of openness.

Did you know that, although it sounds terribly modern and technical, underfloor heating actually dates back hundreds, by some counts thousands, of years? The Romans, for example, warmed rooms in their homes by running the flues for their “basement” fires, tended religiously by slaves, under elevated floors of marble.

Of course, the open floor plan doesn’t get its popularity due to the number of rooms but rather the way that those spaces function within the larger whole. If you’re one to prefer privacy and, perhaps, greater organization (e.g., more built-ins and storage), having fewer rooms with which to work could put your space at a disadvantage.

The kitchen floor can be nice and cozy all day, while the spare guest bedroom doesn’t get warmed as much. This goes back to an energy-efficient benefit.

The open floor plan tends to put everyone into the same mixing pot, as it were, and leaves them to fend for their private arrangements in a more public setting. “Enclosed spaces may work better in a house where everyone needs their space”.

Where other traditional house-heating methods can leave patches of draftiness or downright chilliness (think hallways, or corners of large rooms), underfloor heating is evenly dispersed and consistent. Kind of like an electric blanket, just under the floor.

Let’s face it – no one wants to have to work around the architectural constraints of conventional forced-air heating systems, whether they be boiler baseboards, radiators, or even heating vents. One of the best parts about underfloor heating is that it’s truly invisible – no evidence that it’s there, except for the nice, even blanket of warmth exuding from the floor when you need it.

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.

Before we jump in to talking about the pros and cons of open floor plans, it might be a good idea to talk about what this means, or in other words to define open. Open, in this instance, describes the layout of a larger space that functions as multiple rooms or functionalities within that single (larger) living space. The most common form of open floor plan in today’s homes includes a combination of kitchen, dining room, and living room all open to each other within a single “great room”.
