A cohesive color palette brings your open-concept floor plan together

1. Choose a Consistent Color Palette

The first place to start when deciding on how to decorate your new home is the color scheme. The rooms in open-concept floor plans often flow together. For this reason, it’s important to select a color palette that can compliment each space in the open layout of your new home. This includes rooms such as the kitchen, dining area, family room. For instance, the home above from Westside Station utilizes a neutral color palette with greys and light shades of brown. From the accent wall in the dining area to the colors accenting the living room and the countertops in the kitchen, they all work together to create one cohesive look and feel.

The lighting in your open-concept home

2. Utilize Strategically Placed Lighting

The importance of strategically placed lighting in your new home cannot be expressed enough. The lighting in an open-concept floor plan has to take into account the wide array of uses for each room. As an example, the dining area may not only serve as a place for eating, but also a space for the kids to do their homework after school. Regardless of whether you select pendant lights, the addition of task lighting is a crucial element in your new home. In the kitchen you’ll want to have ample lighting for both preparing family dinners and making delicious treats together as a family.

3. Establish Boundaries Between Rooms

Because open-concept floor plans don’t typically have defined borders between rooms, you’re responsible for creating those boundaries on your own. The solution to this is simpler than you think! It all comes down to how you utilize your furniture in the space. As seen in the home above from Adams Vineyard, angling your furniture helps create a subtle, natural divide in the room. This segments the open space without taking away from the appeal of an open-concept floor plan. You can also use this approach to establish smaller task areas throughout your home. These might include a reading nook or a small workstation.
