Tips for Decorating an Open Floor Plan

Decorating a home with an open floor plan can be challenging. Without definition of rooms you have to design one area with the rest of the space in mind. It may seem intimidating but it doesn’t have to be difficult when you follow a few simple rules. If you want your open floor plan to have designated spaces that work in unison then just follow these guidelines to get started.


When selecting wood pieces one thing you don’t want to do is stick to one finish. Repeating two or three different wood finishes in the same tones from one area to the next will make it cohesive and add dimension. This will allow all pieces to blend without it looking like you bought matching sets.


Opt for mix and match chandeliers and lamps. Using statement lighting is a way of giving each space its own personality. Unique light fixtures will give your open floor plan a designer look while highlighting the unique purpose of each area.


Creating focal points helps to ground the space. A gallery wall or a wallpapered accent wall will help each area feel like its own. Pull colors from artwork and fabrics and carry them throughout the space with accessories and accents in order to create an overall cohesive look.


Designate zones with furniture placement. Rather than pushing everything against the wall you can create separation by floating pieces in the center of the space. Use a focal point to anchor it and you’ll have an instant conversation area that breaks up all the open space.
