Open concept living is a popular interior design trend in custom design-build homes. This type of living arrangement allows for more natural light and improved airflow throughout the home.
One of the benefits of open concept living in Whangarei is that it allows homeowners to customize their living space to suit their individual needs. In turn, it can help to create a more cohesive home design.
Think about it: when all of the rooms in your home flow together, an open layout creates a sense of harmony and balance.
We can’t say it enough: open concept living is a great way to make small spaces feel larger.
With careful planning, open concept living can be a unique advantage to any home. So be sure to work with a custom home builder who can help you bring your vision to life.
If you’re considering this type of layout for your Whangarei custom home, here’s what you need to know:
Open concept living gets more natural light into your home. When you have an open layout, there are fewer walls to block the light. And if you have extra large windows, you can let in even more light which saves you more on electricity bills. (Coupled with double glazing!)
The kitchen is usually the focal point of an open concept space. Be sure to plan for plenty of countertop space and storage.
Open concept living is the perfect way to entertain guests. When you have an open layout, it’s easy to move around and mingle with your guests. You can also set up different areas for different activities.
Open concept living can be great for families. If you have small children, you may want to consider adding a play area or homework station in your open concept space. This will help to keep the noise level down and provide a designated space for your children to play or do their homework.
Open concept living spaces can sometimes feel a bit cold and impersonal if not adequately given a splash of interior design. To avoid this, be sure to add warm touches like area rugs, throws and pillows, cozy furniture and interesting artwork.
