I fall in love with any house that displays some kind of modern open plan living. I think it’s an important aspect to a house, why would you want to feel boxed in? You want large amounts of spacious environment, room to move and room to live. You can create an open plan feel by taking out walls if it’s an existing house that’s full of them. Most modern homes display openness by creating a kitchen which flows into the dining and living area, with no walls separating the spaces, but rather objects like island benches and couches. My all time favourite display of open living is with the addition of bi-fold or sliding doors. Even better then the connection between kitchen and living is the connection between living and the outside environment. Anything that connects these two is my idea of perfect open plan living and will make for a sound investment to a modern home.
