What's the Best Layout for My Open Plan Living Space

Interior spaces come in all shapes and sizes, and when your room's open plan, it can be hard to know where to locate all the elements.  Take a look at these successful schemes to help you decided on an arrangement to suite your living, kitchen and dining space.


Lay it out lengthways
A side return extension provided the perfect space to locate this open-plan kitchen and living area. A sweeping island and long run of base units makes use of the length of the space and leads out to a living room area at the rear.

To keep the long, lean space as wide as possible, the designers left one side wall completely free and instead fitted a bank of tall units along the back wall for storage and appliances.

The extension works well on its own, but is enhanced by its open connection to the original house, where there’s a dining area and formal living room.
