For years the trend of open plan living has reigned supreme, yet a new contender is entering the ring - broken plan living.
A twist on open plan, broken plan retains that sense of openness, while also offering more privacy and cosy nooks. It's a chance to get creative with your home, allowing you to play with shelves, partitions, and even half walls. So if you’re looking for a new home layout, here’s some inspiration to get you started…
Shelves and screens
First things first, you don’t need to undertake a massive renovation project to achieve a broken plan space. If you already enjoy an open layout, but you want to divide up space, get creative with your furniture. Shelving and screens can help block off areas of your home, enabling you to create new nooks for studying, working, or relaxing. What’s more, these items can also be removed, so you don’t have to commit straight away.
These are a firm favourite in the broken plan movement, as the glazing provides the perfect way to keep your space feeling open, even while splitting it up. By opting for a glass partition, you allow for light to continue penetrating the whole household, yet also create quiet areas for relaxation, as glass will provide a level of soundproofing.
Looking for a bit of extra style? Opt for crittall glass. The black iron is very on-trend, especially when those bold lines are contrasted against modern white interiors.
