Decorate an Open Floor Plan «

  • Distinguish the area.
    Even though you want room to breathe in an open floor plan, it’s important to have pieces of furniture or architectural elements to identify each “room.” Here, the fireplace and open shelving serve as a focal point and let you know you’ve arrived in the family room.

    Use dividers.
    With no walls to divide a space, find other pieces to take their place. Folding screens or a set of chairs with a table in between can do the trick. Or try Definitions Panels from Armstrong (shown here in the master bath) for a sleek, contemporary look.

    Choose a color palette to use throughout the floor plan, and stick to it. In this home, inspiration comes from the outdoors. Neutral greens, browns, and blues give the space continuity, while pops of color in accents and artwork add personal appeal.
