As the traditional layout of homes now becomes outdated, more and more people have found that open plan living spaces could be the key to unlocking the potential of their home. We here at Armison provide full project management throughout your build to help you achieve your dream home without the stress that building work can bring.
Spacious, light filled open plan spaces popularised by Grand Designs and other home TV shows has fuelled a shift in the way we now live. With the number of kitchen-diners rising by almost 50% in the last decade, approximately one in three homes now boasts a kitchen-diner. Additionally, one in five Britons plan to further create the ultimate open plan living space, by blending their living rooms with their kitchen diners to form a kitchen/dining/living open plan space, a survey found. It is predicted that in the next decade, the majority of new build homes will be designed in this style. There is no denying that the way in which we now utilise our homes is different from the days in which most of our homes in the UK were built. With a change in lifestyle, convenience, sociability and family orientated living has become paramount. For the many homes that aren't yet able to offer this, investing in an open plan layout can be as beneficial to your pocket as it is to your lifestyle, with well planned extensions adding up to 20% value to your home.
