An alternative to trying to omit substantial visual barriers is to turn this around and use those barriers to your advantage. For the bed that happens to be part of the open floor plan, for example, a raised headboard provides an immediate sense of privacy…even if that privacy isn’t exactly reality.

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.

Work these horizontal planes (e.g., shelves) in wherever it makes sense and is useful. For example, the large “shelf” near the floor under this kitchen island work station is floating, which maintains an open feeling, but it also provides storage and decorative function within the space.

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.

High-end marble is usually defined by a soft and even color palette and less pronounced veins.

In a space such as the dining room a design feature such as marble flooring can turn out to be very suitable considering the room’s sophisticated character. You should give up the area rug in order to expose as much of the floor as possible.

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”.

When the barriers between people are physically removed, it’s much easier, more convenient, and more common for interactions to increase. Facilitate this opportunity by providing comfortable, unique, and/or interesting seating arrangements or furniture items…such as a hanging swing-chair.
