Open Plan Living Ideas
Think In Zones
When you have an open plan space, the only way to design it to flow properly is to think in terms of 'Zones' - each area has a purpose and using clever design, certain items can act as dividers for the space. Obviously, you have to be clever in how you arrange the amount of space you have. Some may have enough space for a work area, accommodating an eating table and a work desk - if this is you, then try to position you work desk in a place that is separate from the other living areas to keep that degree of separation. Others may have to use the same table for all activities which is obviously more challenging. We suggest that whatever your circumstance, you make a clear division between your sofa TV area and your kitchen/table/eating/working space (see picture above). Only use your work area when actually working and your relaxing space when chilling out. DON'T confuse the two if you can help it. This will ease the mind and give it routine.
