I love the extra wide hallways. It makes the house look like a palace.

Love the low TV in #2 -- allows the most ergonomic viewing angle for neck comfort.

My floor plan is the best of both open and closed plans; traffic can circulate among all rooms with no dead-ends, there are many open sight lines, yet there is also some separation by walls and French doors. It is a larger home, though.
