Yeah, you heard me right. The. Worst.
1. Natural light. Who does the sun think he is, sending all his beams of light through my windows? The lack of walls makes it too easy for all of that natural light to permeate my home. Give me artificial flickering light bulbs and higher energy bills, is what I always say.
2. Entertaining. You know what open concept living leads to? More entertaining. With other people. Who needs a super convenient space for people to tell me all about their lives, learn about mine, and provide thoughtful and heartfelt advice? Blugh.
3. Cross Ventilation. Opening windows with an open concept plan will inevitably lead to cross ventilation. Who invited that delightful breeze through my house? I surely didn’t. I’ll keep my stale air, thank you very much.
4. Space. Without walls, all of my spaces are going to feel bigger than they actually are. I didn’t ask for your help increasing the value of my home, Open Concept, so let’s take a stroll straight back to Compartmentalization Station. Thanks.
5. Kiddos. So now you’re telling me that I not only have to cook dinner, but at the same time talk and interact with the kids? There aren't any walls to hide behind! I mean, c’mon is this getting ridiculous, or what?
So to recap, the only group of crazies who should even consider an open concept plan is the one made up of people who like natural light, hanging out with friends, feeling a gentle breeze and breathing fresh air, making their house more valuable and marketable, while at the same time spending quality time with their kids.
