Open Plan Living

As a new development starts I always review our house type layouts and see if improvements can be made. What did we learn last time and what can we do better?

The Carlton house type has been very popular and we are now looking to re design the ground floor to create an open plan layout version. There will be no doors separating the kitchen from the lounge but clever design will mean that although there is openness and flow between the rooms they do feel separated.

I have created an entrance porch and boot room and also a separate cupboard to put the noisy appliances like a washer and dryer.

Is open plan your preference? Do families of today prefer to live in a shared environment so that we are no longer segregated and instead can enjoy an open and relaxed space to live?

I would love to hear your thoughts.
