Open Floor Plans – Design Considerations and Challenges

Open Floor Plans – Design Considerations and Challenges

In this video, I talk about easy, effective techniques for designing open floor plans and delineating separate functional areas. Get the FULL course and downloadable materials for only $15 at

– Do you find yourself struggling to pull together a room in a way that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing?
– Do you think that interior design is all art and no science?

If you answered yes to either or both of these questions, then I think you will really enjoy this course, as you will quickly and easily learn how to create a comprehensive room layout for your living room, dining room and bedrooms. This class is full of useful information, including, but not limited to, examples of different functional room layouts that you can use in your own home, how to easily create a cohesive, personalized color scheme, how to select the right size rug for any room of your home, and how to create a layered lighting plan.

Best of all, if you participate in the activities along the way, by the end of this course you will have a completed comprehensive Guide for designing your own room(s) using a simplified 10-step method.

The ideal student for this course is a person who is interested in creating functional and aesthetically pleasing rooms in their home, but does not already have a lot of knowledge in interior design.

    Noone wants to see their wife and kids when they’re cooking dinner. In 20 years people are gonna look at this and think "what the heck were these people smoking?".

    Loved how quickly you made the points. I am building a home now and want to anticipate my lighting needs in an open floor plan. The living room is 20 feet long and is 16 feet from the fireplace. I think I will need lamos situated behind the sofa or the accent chairs. How do I determine where Floor outlets are situated in the living room space?
