The Benefits of Open-Plan Living

The Benefits of Open-Plan Living

Ah, open-plan living - the holy grail of modern interior design and the chosen layout in many of our Shared Ownership homes. It's the concept of merging two or more living spaces to create a communal area that is perfect for everything from socializing to relaxing. And let's face it, who doesn't love a good open-plan living space?

It’s Sociable
One of the main benefits of open-plan living is that it promotes social interaction. No more running between the living room and kitchen when you’re entertaining. With an open-plan living space, everyone can be part of the conversation, whether you're busy cooking up a storm, or laying the table. 

More Space
Another great advantage of open-plan living is the feeling of space it creates. By removing walls and barriers, the space feels larger and airier. This can be especially beneficial in smaller homes or apartments, where traditional walls can make the space feel cramped and claustrophobic. Feel free to crack out the Zumba playlist or roll out your yoga mat - this space is here to be used.

For those with children, open-plan living can be a godsend. With the living room, dining room and kitchen all in one space, you can keep an eye on your little ones while you get on with whatever the day throws at you. Plus, an open plan living space provides ample room for kids to play and move around, without feeling like they're cooped up in a tiny bedroom.

Bright and Light
Kitchen feeling a little dark while the living room basks in the sunlight? All of our open-plan living spaces offer plenty of natural light, meaning all of that sunshine goodness reaches the whole room. Natural light is incredibly good for mental health and overall mood, so get those blinds open. 

Easy Furniture Layouts
Not sure where you're going to put your sofa? Open-plan layouts have so much more flexibility and room to do whatever you want with the space. If you want to prioritise a dining area or WFH space, you have the option of making it work for you without the constraints of walls and sectioning.
