For example, on one hand marble is very refined and elegant and always features unique patterns but on the other hand it’s also a soft and highly absorbent material which means it stains easily and can be easily damaged by acidic substances and cleaning products.

Underfloor heating does just that. Because it’s not trying (and failing) to heat the entire airspace of a room like a conventional heating system, cycling through a hot-air/no-air/hot-air cycle to maintain a tiny temperature range, underfloor heating is a much more efficient way to heat the house…and a great way to decrease energy bills.

This is another example of an open-aired “wall” – a geometric hex shape that provides subtle, if not outright, privacy to the bedroom that abuts the common living area. Notice the effectiveness of the trailing plant in providing definition amidst openness as well.

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”.

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.

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.

Because marble contains minerals, its iron content turns to rust over time, especially when exposed to high humidity so while it might not be advised to have marble flooring in bathrooms and showers, hallways are a whole different story.

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.
