What is Open Plan Living?
We should probably start by explaining what open plan living actually is. Very simply, it is to do with combining some of the major rooms of the house into one larger space. It could be that you knock through from your kitchen to make a kitchen-diner. Or you might even want a kitchen-diner-living space that becomes the hub of the family home.
There are no set rules, but generally if you get rid of anything that divides two or more rooms up, that is considered open plan living. Here are some of the major benefits of open plan living:
Benefits of Open Plan Living in Leicestershire
1) It Will Be Lighter and More Efficient
Opening up the space in your property allows the light to flow through much easier. There are fewer walls to block it out, so it doesn’t matter which side of the house is bathed in sunshine at any one point in the day, the whole of the open space benefits from it.
Not only does this feel more airy, but it also means you’ll find yourself having to turn the lights on in the dark side of the house less often during daytime hours. Cutting down on your electricity bills can only be a good thing, right?
Let’s face it, we’re not famed in Leicestershire for being the most sun drenched destination in the world, so anything that can make the most of the light that we have should be encouraged.
2) It’s More Sociable
The situation in many non-open plan homes sees family members sharing the home, but very rarely the same space. There could be one parent in the kitchen making tea, the kids in the living room in front of the TV and another parent on the computer in a third room.
Open plan living brings you all together. It is great for helping families communicate with each other and enjoy each other’s company. In addition, it is perfect if you have some friends over and don’t want to miss out on the conversation when you head into the kitchen to make the food. With an open plan kitchen-diner, your guests can relax with a drink and still involve you in the gossip.
3) It Feels Bigger
The problem with having lots of rooms, all walled off from each other, is that they can sometimes feel a little claustrophobic. Even if they are a decent size, the overall space might seem smaller than it is. Replacing them with an open plan living space can transform the feeling of the property, which is great for you while you live there and ideal when you come to sell and hope to impress those who come to view.
Even with the exact same square footage, open plan living really gives a sense of space that traditional rooms cannot.
