Open Plan vs Separate Rooms

Open Plan vs Separate Rooms

There are excellent benefits to both open plan layouts and those with separate rooms, so really you have to consider what you prefer the look of as well as the practicality considering your day to day lifestyle.

For example, if you enjoy entertaining often with large groups of friends and family, an open plan layout may be particularly appealing. Open plan layouts work especially well in contemporary homes, making them feel bright and spacious perfect for relaxed living. Open plan layouts create a sense of opulence and the open space can be very eye pleasing.

Perhaps a benefit to some, a downside to open plan living is that everyone is together, without separate living. This may not be suitable for larger families who would prefer having some separate living space for quiet evenings. It can also make storage tricky so you have to be careful when choosing how to arrange your furniture 




The benefits to separate rooms include having more personal space and making the rooms more multi functional. For example, someone could be studying in one room, whilst others are watching a film in another. You also gain more walls which give you wider choice for arranging furniture, artwork etc. 

Separate rooms however may feel smaller as opposed to the emphasised space of open plan layouts. Really it is a consideration of what works best for you and your day to day needs. 

Again, because this really is a case of preference it should not affect your property's value as long the property is liveable for a variety of types of families and households!

We recently sold our house & purchased through Forest Marble. We were kept up to date throughout the whole process. Once we had sold our house Forest Marble helped us to find our new home. A special mention to Amy who was always quick to respond to any query’s we had in a friendly, helpful manner.

Forest Marble were fantastic throughout the whole moving process. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and would never use another estate agent in the area! Amy was kind and professional, communicating with me daily when necessary. With lawyer complications she kept me sane! Aaron and the rest of the team were equally lovely and helpful whenever I rang. Nothing was too much.

Forest Marble and especially Amy and Laura, went above and beyond to make our move possible. We had previously been with a different estate agent and experienced a very different service, the communication and attitude of Forest Marble was exceptional and we felt confident with them handling our sale and purchase. We would 100% recommend them as an active, approachable, friendly and efficient estate agents.
