As we are all adapting to the new norm of isolation, we are spending a lot more time at home with our families. Our homes have become office, playground, school, gym, pub while, most importantly, remaining a loving family home.
Homes with an open-plan layout present difficulties, as families are now forced to share the same space for numerous activities. Finding a way to create multi-tasking, flexible spaces for your clients isn’t always easy – but small changes can make a huge difference, so read our guide below for ideas on how to maximise spaces for different family members, activities and moods.
Freestanding open bookcases or shelving with no back can be great room dividers allowing light and sightlines to flow easily around the room. At HUX we can create bespoke free-standing furniture that perfectly complements your interior schemes while making the best possible use of the space available.
An entrance way through to a room can create the perfect opportunity to design a library wall, to house books and ornaments. Removing clutter and into a well organised wall can often be the first step to reorganising and re-zoning a space.
Curtains, partitions and sliding or folding doors are a great solution as they give great flexibility. For example, a sliding door, as shown here, can define the study area making it feel more intimate.
