Embrace the new interior trend…broken-plan living

Forget open plan the new trend is broken-plan, creating intimate spaces whilst keeping the sense of open plan - this new design offers a modern spin on open-plan living.
For the past twenty years we have been knocking down walls in homes to create large open plan spaces, which provide light airy, sociable areas within our homes, but as many of us are experiencing, they can be quite unpractical as noise and smells transmit easily through the space, and privacy and noise transference can sometimes be an issue.
The new broken-plan design keeps the flow of an open-plan area whilst retaining more intimate spaces where people can have some time out. It’s all very well having vast areas of bright rays coming into our homes, but sometimes it’s nice to snuggle up in a cosy area to watch a film or read a book: or to just get away from always having to look at the kitchen area or piles of ironing that needs attending to.
This latest design concept works by dividing large areas with creative screening ideas such as movable shelving units, fireplaces, split level flooring, clear internal partitions, sliding walls and so forth.
If you would like to embrace this modern trend then Goodfellows Carshalton Beeches has this lovely three bedroom house for sale in Carshalton with a guide price of £430,000, the broken-plan layout gives the feeling of space but also privacy.
