Today’s homeowners are all about the open concept. Newer constructions tend toward open-concept floor plans, and homeowners are renovating existing older homes to create more open spaces. This preference for open floor plans makes “line of sight” an important consideration for interior design.
Line of Sight
Consider your “line of sight” when designing for an unobstructed view from (for example) a kitchen to dining to living space. It can be jarring to look out from an elegantly-designed kitchen into a dining or living space cluttered with unattractive, mismatched hutch or entertainment center. You can create a more harmonious line-of-sight by making purposeful design choices about paint color and placement, windows, lighting, furniture layout, and more.
Obscured or choppy views can make a space feel small, cluttered, and uncomfortable. Rooms designed with clear sightlines make a space feel more open and welcoming. You can use sightlines to highlight architectural features (fireplaces, built-in bookshelves), and help create a pleasing flow from one room to the next.
