Open-plan living is still incredibly popular throughout Nottingham and the East Midlands, and for good reason! Perfect for smaller homes in need of more space and natural light, open-plan living is ideal for large gatherings, bringing family and friends together to eat, chat, party, and relax all in the same space. Making your home open-plan can add considerable value too, especially in kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms.

So, if you like the idea of creating a seamless open-plan living space but don’t know where to start, here are 5 open-plan living ideas to inspire you.

How do you design an open-plan area in the East Midlands?

1. A glass roof conservatory in the Peak District

Flooding spaces with warming natural light, glass roof conservatories remain a firm favourite for creating unforgettable open plan settings with a view. Utilising the cutting-edge SMARTGLASS® Ultra 86 roofing system, the way modern glass conservatory roofs provide the illusion of more space is second to none.

2. Beautiful bifold doors in Bakewell

Sleek, space-saving, and compact, bifold doors fold back on themselves in a concertina style to completely open up the space and welcome the outside in. Aluminium bifold doors are particularly popular in open-plan layouts as the frames are much slimmer, which allows for more glass and less frame.

3. Sleek sliding doors in Stamford

Sliding doors feature swathes of uninterrupted glazing, connecting interiors and exteriors together to create exquisite open plan living spaces. Able to be locked into place with ease, this additional element of security and privacy is often chosen in households with younger children or vulnerable adults. Sliding doors also make excellent entrances for open plan balcony spaces as they don’t need the extra space to project outwards.

4. Make your conservatory, orangery, or extension open plan

If your conservatory, orangery, or extension backs onto your garden space, you have the perfect opportunity to make it open plan. Removing doors or windows separating the space will increase natural light and enhance the flow of traffic throughout the building. Going open-plan will require building regulation approval, to ensure both home and conservatory remain efficient. As FENSA registered installers, our team of experts can help and advise as little or as much as you need.

5. Incorporate a skylight

Adding skylights to kitchen spaces, living rooms and tiled conservatory roofs are all firm favourites for creating a sense of open plan living in the East Midlands and beyond. Filling the space with optimum levels of natural light and fresh air, modern energy efficient skylights can also help to minimise rising heating and lighting costs.
