If you’ve ever had the chance to live in an open floor plan, you know they’re a renter’s dream. You may not know, however, that there is actually science behind them. Read on to learn more about the science of open floor plans. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be inspired to wave goodbye to the walls in your home!


Open Floor Plans Brighten Up Your Day

The absence of interior walls makes it easy to fill your home with sunlight, which releases serotonin, the hormone that makes us feel happy and focused. Open up your space and pull back the curtains to let happiness flow throughout your home.

Open Floor Plans Bring People Together

Walls are great for privacy, but do a poor job of nurturing relationships. People who live in open floor plans, spend more time with their housemates, creating deeper, more satisfying bonds. The openness of the common areas also makes entertaining a breeze, prompting more social gatherings with friends and family.

Open Floor Plans Put You at Ease 

Open spaces are often more inviting and comforting compared to tight, closed in areas. If walking through your front door doesn’t evoke a sigh of relief, maybe it’s time you moved to a more open, peaceful space.
