The Next Big Thing
So, what’s currently trending in home renovations? One huge renovation trend to watch out for in 2019 is open plan living. It might not be a new concept, but it’s back in a big way this year. Think lots of clean open space and a light, airy aesthetic.
Now, you may be thinking that open plan living is nothing new – it’s been popular for a while. That is very true, but new trends are often just spins on older trends. The current spin on open plan living is to include statement partitions in your open concept space. Statement partitions help to keep the airy feel of an open space, but still offer some element of privacy or division. With a statement partition you can create different zones and spaces in your home, while adding something beautiful to look at. You can create partitions using glass doors, kitchen islands, door frames without doors, and even fireplaces. There are lots of ways to divide a space without putting solid walls and doors in the way.
Materials are key
One example of a statement partition uses steel and glass. Glass is a very versatile material and can be used in a variety of styles, from sleek and modern to industrial or vintage. Glass creates the illusion of space as it allows light to come through it. Other materials for your partition could be metal or wood, depending on your home’s aesthetic. Wood is great if you have a natural, rustic vibe.
