Open-plan living designs have been very popular these past few years; as apartments continue to shrink in size, more people are opting for open floor plans that help add a sense of space to their homes.

However, when combining multiple living areas in one open space, there are a few things to take into consideration, particularly when it comes to choosing the right flooring.

Be Consistent

When you use different floor types and/or colours in one single space, this chops your room up into smaller parts, eroding the sense of wide space. This is why it is important to use as few floor types as possible when it comes to open floor plan flooring.

Only when there’s a narrow enough opening leading to another room, might you consider a transition in flooring. Even then, you should avoid visible, high-contrast transitions and transition strips.

One Floor Fits All

Kitchens, living rooms or dining rooms all put different requirements on your flooring. When going with an open floor plan, you should take all these into account and choose a flooring type that combines the right specs. Factors to consider include wear, feel, comfort and durability.
