Are there disadvantages of an open floor plan home?
   Comment   March 3, 2011
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Ronique Gibson
The largest disadvantage is clutter control and noise carries. I find most home owners that don't like open floor plans is because of these 2 factors.

In an open floor plan you can see across an entire room quickly, and clutter can make the difference if the home looks clean and tidy. Noise and privacy are also disadvantages of an open floor plan..

But I have to say, I love the openness of my open floor plan home, and being able to see out the windows from all angles of the room.

Historical Information - This space is very unique, especially as you view the other spaces and how they relate to each other. Can you provide information regarding the original structure and what it was used for? Also how it came to become a project for the firm. Thanks. Wonderful work and the space is beautifully captured in the pictures.
