The Open Plan Living Lifestyle

How will open plan living change your life?

Open plan living is perfectly suited to modern lifestyles. Whether you’re a family or simply love entertaining, this contemporary and popular way of living encourages everyone to come together in one space.

For families with younger children, an open plan layout means you can keep an eye on your little ones as they play with their toys. With older children, you can check they’re doing their homework at the dining table while you prepare dinner. Ultimately, you’ll spend a lot more time in the same space together, but without feeling crowded.

If you love to entertain, open plan living means you can cook dinner while chatting to your guests as they relax in the living or dining area and there’s so much more room for parties.

Here are a few more reasons why open plan living will change your life:

Too much clutter? You can use storage boxes as room separators, discreetly hiding any mess while keeping you organised. The same goes in the kitchen. Hide unsightly gadgets under a kitchen island and keep worktops clear so your line of sight skims over the top and out into the dining area.

Love light? Open plan living creates much more light and space because there are no walls to obstruct the flow of natural light. You can enhance this with neutral wall colours and recessed lighting for a calm, modern home that invites you to relax.

Want to take some design risks? Having an open plan home gives you the opportunity to get really creative. With neutral walls providing a flow through the space, you can add some pops of colour, a dramatic piece of art or some statement furniture.

However bold or neutral you go, open plan living will change everything!
