What is Broken Plan?
Broken plan is a combination of modern open plan living and a more traditional home layout. Keeping functionality in mind, broken plan makes use of aesthetic elements like colour, pattern and texture, as well as structural aspects like modular systems, half walls, bifold doors and open shelving, to zone out living sections.
Benefits of Broken Plan Living - Advice from CP Builders and Joiners
Broken plan is the perfect combination of an open plan and traditional living area layout!
As we mentioned in our last post
, there are many ways to open up your home. If you aren't sure if your home will suit such a drastic difference as open plan, take note of these benefits of broken plan.
Allows for Difference
One of the main benefits of implementing broken plan in your home is that it allows you to create a living space with a difference. Broken plan provokes you to consider home design in a more critical way. You have to be prepared to use contrasting textures, patterns and colours to define spatial boundaries! Though this may seem daunting initially, you will be able to completely re-invent and improve the functionality of your family life.
Another benefit is that you will be able to incorporate more storage. It is very popular in broken plan living to use large storage units to break up areas in an open plan
space! If you place a cupboard or open shelves between your living and dining sections for example, you will have a useful place for storage as well as a room divider.
One of the ways in which our Glasgow builders
implement a broken plan layout in a home, is by creating a kitchen wall opening or by building a half wall and mezzanine level. These simple structural works give households the chance to be open plan, while maintaining a good level of privacy. An ideal compromise for those in a busy home who like socialising but also enjoy their own space. Turn to the CP Builders and Joiners when looking to up your domestic layout.
