We love these not-so-open floor plans. If you prefer some separation between your living space, dining room, and kitchen, these house plans are for you. The separation of rooms allows space for storage and organization and ensures that everyone in the family can have their own space. Even though rooms are separate, large doorways, high ceilings, and windows still make these homes feel bright and airy.
