The design sector continues to debate what the most popular layout for our homes is – open plan or separate living space? Some experts are suggesting that new ways of living do not lend themselves to borderless layouts, so believe that the open-plan trend is in decline. However, recent research into online search behaviours actually found that the concept of an open-plan has dramatically increased in popularity over the last few years.
With searches for “open plan house” up 168% from 2019 to 2021, and searches for “open plan kitchen living room floor plan” up 400% from 2020 to 2021, it is apparent that there is still a very real appetite in the UK for open, bright, light and airy spaces to call home. Our latest offering, The Starting Block, gives buyers the ultimate flexibility to design their perfect layout.
