Expand your mind to open plan living
The functional and harmonious concept of open plan living is desirable, yet daunting. What do you do with the space in front of you? How can you maximise your square footage? And where do you begin?
The potential of open plan living is endless. Whether you have an existing space – primed and ready to use, or a small area begging to be expanded, it can feel like an impossible feat, if you can’t visualise the end result.
Your open living space is the heart of family life, choosing the right layout and furnishings will transform your house and help create your perfect home.
Take what you have and make it your own
Start by looking at your existing structural layout. If you have areas that are already partitioned or alcoves that could be used, make them part of your plan and adapt around the existing features. With a wide range of table sizes available, the Ares range is ideal for fitting into your current layout. Perfect for both inside and out, you can adjust to fit your home.
Separate your space
If you’re looking to adapt and transform a large space, start by planning out where you envisage yourself spending time. If the sunlight hits a wall at dinner time, consider designating this space for your dining area. The Air table range is perfect for sunny corners, with UV protection and multiple colours available. You can position it perfectly to enjoy those sunny summer evenings, safe in the knowledge it won’t fade over time.
Separate smaller spaces
When it comes to smaller spaces, it’s vital to utilise the area you have available. Why not introduce a breakfast bar to separate the kitchen from the lounge area – providing you with a multi-functional living space that can be adapted to your home. With both a 65cm and 75cm option available, the Maya Bar Stools are ideal to slide under your breakfast counter. Sun-proof and durable metal-free frames ensure they look as good as new from dawn till dusk, all year round
Combine a collection of spaces
To get the most out of your open plan area consider combining the use of your unique spaces. Try arranging the sitting area close to the kitchen by backing up your lounge set next to your cooking area – the ideal set up to entertain the kids whilst putting your feet up and keeping an eye on the cooking. The Miami lounge set is ideal for sunny conservatories close to the kitchen, and provides the perfect place to sit back and relax, whilst keeping an eye on the kitchen.
Designate a dining area
Take time to fully embrace your space and envision yourself using it. Where works best for your dining table? How can you make the most of the daylight and enjoy the sunset over supper? Our Vegas table and chairs are ideal for year-round dining, whether in the garden, conservatory or inside your open plan living space. With three neutral tones to choose from, and modern weather-proof technology as standard, you can’t go wrong with a Vegas dining experience.
