One of the most popular renovation projects is creating an open-plan kitchen-diner. But if you’re thinking of opening up your space, it can be difficult to visualise what it would actually look like. How can you get a feel for a new, larger space before you even decide to go down this project route? Well, virtual reality could be the answer. Let’s look at some helpful tips and talk about how virtual reality can show you what your new kitchen-diner could look like if you’re thinking of knocking through.
We all need space so creating a larger area for the whole household to enjoy and use for multiple tasks is now more important than ever, what with the changes we’ve experienced to the way we live lately. From home working and spending more time indoors, open-plan living could bring huge benefits to your new lifestyle.
Knocking through to go open plan
By opening up a room you can create extra space, bring in more light, and introduce better flow. Not all projects are the same, so first seek advice from a professional – building regulations need to be considered as well as the structural feasibility.
Get in the zone
Then think about the many uses of the modern-day kitchen and work out zones for each: cooking, dining, entertaining, working, and relaxing. Define the space with colours, materials, lighting, and floor levels for each use.
Step into your new kitchen
If you’re thinking of knocking through to create an open-plan kitchen, you’ll want to be 100% sure you’re making the right decision for the space as mistakes can be costly.
Imagine stepping into your new kitchen and experiencing it in real time, to see if it suits your needs. Virtual reality can help you get a feel for the new space and avoid any dreaded regret. That way you’ll be certain a knock through is the right project for you.
