Open floor plans generally work best in “homes with less square footage – sometimes out of necessity – while larger homes have more leeway to work with when integrating great rooms into a floor plan”. Spacious homes that have fewer walls are the layout du jour; let’s consider their benefits.
Pianos, for example, may be affected by continuous warmth from an underfloor heating system, so it is recommended that they are placed on insulation. This could be a stylistic deterrent for some people.
While this benefit doesn’t apply to every household, it is an important one for those homes with children. A parent who can get their own things accomplished (e.g., making dinner, cleaning, working, etc.) while still keeping an eye on their children is in a better situation, safety- and peace of mind-wise.
For those instances where a widely open floor plan just doesn’t make sense or look well, it’s certainly not a bad idea to incorporate some sort of design elements that will resemble walls for you. Just be sure that they lean more toward Swiss cheese (plenty of visual “holes” and gaps) than toward a thick slice of cheddar. Leaving the top third of the vertical plane empty also helps to maintain a feeling of openness while still defining the smaller spaces.
