Homeowners often ask architects to design open plan living spaces. Most often they want to combine the kitchen, living room and dining room to create one flowing layout. It’s a concept that has been around for a while now, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Read on to find out why open plan living is still so popular.
Creates social spaces
Naturally, open plan areas encourage you to be more sociable with your family. You won’t have to shout into the next room to grab your family’s attention – the chances are that you’ll be able to see them across the room.
Opens up a small space
Lots of us are pressed for space here in the UK, so open plan living can have an impact on how cramped we feel in the space that we have. If you live in a small house or flat, knocking through walls can create a light and airy space for you to enjoy.
Offers an indoor/outdoor solution
Another great reason why open plan living is still on-trend is that it offers an indoor/outdoor solution. Open up your home and you’ll find that you feel much more of a connection with your garden. Team your open plan living space with large windows or doors. This allows lots of light into your home and gives you a feeling of ‘oneness’ with the outdoors.
It’s clear to see why open plan living is still something that homeowners ask architects to incorporate in their plans. You’ll feel much happier in your home with plenty of light and space to enjoy.
