Open-plan living spaces have always been hugely beneficial to families of all sizes. With room to meal prep and eat on the go in the kitchen, as well as a generous pantry with lots of space to feed the troops, a dining zone close by for family meals, games, and puzzles, and a living area that allows for kids to relax under the watchful eye of parents, open-plan living is the way to go in your new home. Take a look at some of our favourite open-plan layouts!
First Home Buyers Perfection
The Omeo 180 is a compact home that still packs big features, one of them being the open-plan kitchen/living/dining area that serves as the heart of the home, connecting to an alfresco. We love the modern, colourful décor that helps define each section of the area, while still keeping things feeling cosy and comfortable. The walk-through-pantry also cleverly conceals the laundry from view, while keeping it accessible so you can stay on top of things!
Dreamy Hamptons Style Design
With a huge walk-in-pantry, the Calva 303’s kitchen is an entertainer’s dream! The kitchen runs vertically along the right side of the home design, with the dining space right next to it connecting to the large alfresco. There’s also a living space that’s adjacent to the dining area also connecting to the outdoor area. This the perfect open-plan layout for large families and those who love to entertain outdoors, and these Hamptons style interiors make each zone blend seamlessly together.
Family Friendly Minimalist Style
The Marcoola 269 has an open-plan galley style kitchen with a walk-in-pantry, and the living area located right in front of it, making it ideal for families with little ones who need to be supervised. The dining area is in the same space off to the side, making meal times a breeze. We love these chic grey floors and contemporary styling keeping the aesthetic on-trend and family friendly at the same time.
Split Level Perfection
The Hillgrove 234 offers families an entire lower level devoted to open-plan living. As you descend the stairs from the entry level a spacious kitchen on the left with a large butler’s pantry greets you. There’s room in front of the island bench for a generous dining table, and the rest of the space is dedicated to a living area, perfect for relaxing in with the family after a long day. With contemporary interiors, this open-plan area that connects directly to the outdoors is perfect for families who want a low maintenance space everyone can enjoy together!
Whether you want an open-plan space that’s in the centre of the home for a communal feel, or something that takes you straight out to the backyard to allow you to enjoy indoor/outdoor living with ease, you’re sure to find a home design that features an open-plan area that will suit every member of your family!
