As real estate agents who have been around the block, we can’t help but notice that many of our clients have an open floor plan near the top of their list of must-have features. This poses a problem for us, because most Rego Park homes for sale were built well before open floor plans became a thing.
We realized that part of our job is to make our clients fall in love with traditional floor plans again. Since everyone has been spending so much time at home over the past year, it’s been an easy task. People are seeing the benefits of traditional floor plans for themselves.
Still not convinced? If you are browsing Rego Park homes for sale, we encourage you to keep an open mind. Here are four pros to a traditional floor plan that might make you change your thinking:
- More privacy.
While we have cherished the time spent with our families over the past year, we’ve also realized how much we value our privacy. A traditional floor plan allows for some much-needed separation between family members and roommates.
- Lower utility bills.
When you are looking at Rego Park homes for sale, every penny counts. It requires less energy to heat small rooms than one open space, and this can have a tangible effect on your bills.
- Multiple opportunities to exercise your home decor muscles.
If you can’t decide between a mid-century modern look or a classic farmhouse style, a traditional floor plan will allow you to have the best of both worlds. It’s a little easier to outfit your home if you don’t need to worry about coordinating an open space.
- Cleaning a room is as simple as closing the door.
If unexpected guests pop in, they don’t need to see your kitchen disaster. Steer them away to the living room, and nobody has to look at the mess you made!
