Around a decade ago, open plan homes were all any interior designer could talk about. Home buyers became more interested in buying open plan homes and homeowners frequently refurbished their homes to make them more open, knocking down many walls in the process.
Open plan living is no longer a new thing, but that doesn’t mean that it’s unfashionable or unpopular. It became a staple of interior architecture, and something that caused a shift in the past few years in homes across the world, in all kinds of sizes and budgets.
But now that movement is changing again, and plenty of homeowners and designers are wondering if open plan is the lifestyle haven we had all imagined, or if closed plan is actually the way to go.
