 The newly launched Open Planned website is a free source of inspiration, information, and expertise for everyone from homeowners to property developers who want to build open-plan homes.

Airy, spacious, free-flowing open-plan layouts are highly prized, lifting the spirit and adding thousands to the value of a home.

All too often, though, plans are thwarted by fire risk regulations or energy conservation requirements and their expensive, disruptive workarounds.

This is misguided. Most problems of open-plan layouts can be overcome with creativity and technical know-how.About OpenPlanned.org

Whether planning a loft conversion, a kitchen-diner, or a split-level knock-through ground floor, Open Planned demonstrates how.

Its illustrated case studies are packed with high-quality photographs of completed projects, helpful floor plans, and straightforward descriptions that follow the same easy-to-navigate template.

Even better, you can filter by property type, location, room type, size and budget, allowing you to see only those that match your needs.

No-nonsense articles and plain English guides explain the technical factors underpinning open-plan layouts and point you to useful third-party resources.

Finally, homeowners can search a database of suppliers that includes architects, builders, installers, surveyors, loft conversion specialists, approved building inspectors and many more by type and location.

Open Planned was conceived by Plumis. Passionate about confronting technical problems in the home with elegant solutions, and struck by the paucity of accessible information about open-plan layouts for homeowners and the way regulations were frustrating design ambition. Open Planned was born.
