Say hello to Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms’ second Readly special dedicated to all things open-plan living. And, if you’re thinking about creating a grand project in your home, look no further – this exclusive is packed with creative ideas.
Inside our 76-page exclusive – titled Your Guide to Open-plan Living – expect amazing real projects, designer tips, and step-by-step guides to help you create your perfect space. Think amazing renovations, clever layouts, stylish storage, and cool lighting. Plus, we’re covering hotel-chic bedroom and bathroom suites, and so much more…
We’ve taken a tour of five very distinctive projects around the UK, including a huge, open-plan industrial-style warehouse conversion in London designed by bespoke kitchen company Roundhouse. It uses black-stained oak cabinetry and a very stylish Corten steel work surface to add depth to the scheme.
With ample space for a library, office and bar, we love the clearly defined zones for work, rest, play, and exercise. And, handily, the designers have even left enough room for a grand piano!
We’ve also got a complete guide to wetrooms, also known as open-plan bathrooms, which are a great use of awkward spaces. And if you’re considering including one in your new design, we’ve got everything you need to know – from the best wall and floor coverings to practical advice on layout, ventilation and plumbing, including some all-important information on drainage and tanking.
Whatever you decide, don’t forget it’s always best to chat it all through with your builder, designer or architect.
Lastly, for anyone who is considering placing a bath in their boudoir, creating a dressing room or adding the perfect ensuite – or all three – our editor Georgina’s feature on planning and designing your perfect open-plan master suite is a must read!
As Jon Stanley of Caesarstone perfectly sums it up: “It is a soothing and relaxing spot where you can unwind after a hard day.” Sounds pretty good to us!
So grab a hot cup of coffee, get cosy, and let those ideas flow.
