Open-Concept Living
“The 20th Century Modernist masters brought us the open concept home, which was popularized in the mid-century,” notes David Corbin, co-founder of lifestyle design firm 30 Collins. “Today, it seems that most homeowners prefer an open concept floor plan, whether designing a new home or renovating an older home.”

“The concept of open-floor plans where living, dining and kitchen areas blur into large open spaces, and indoor spaces blur into outdoor spaces, seem to be appealing to an increasing number of homeowners. It took decades for it to become mainstream, but this beautiful and functional design idea is here to stay.”
