Tips On Decorating Your Open Plan Living Space

Open plan living offers a variety of benefits including a light and bright space, enough room to entertain and functional areas. Depending on how big or small your floor plan is, you may be finding it challenging to decorate the living space you are working with. We’ve compiled our favourite ways to decorate your open plan living space so you can begin to make it feel like home.


Complementary feature areas

Creating small feature areas in a bigger room will help add interest and ensure the room decor all ties together. Here are a few modern ways to incorporate this into your space.

Add a colour block arch

This colour block arch trend has taken over Instagram by storm and it’s no wonder why! Introducing new shapes and colour into the home brightens up the room and instantly adds an area of interest to your living space. Whether you decide to paint it on or use a sticker, there’s plenty of ways to add this to your home.


Smart panelling

Panelling is another trend that is slowly making its way back into the interior design world. The traditional trend has been revamped to include modern and contemporary designs so you can utilise panels in your home. Whether you are looking to create the illusion of higher ceilings or a feature wall, there is a modern panelling solution out there that suits your style and home.



Full length mirror in a large hallway

Create the impression of a bigger, brighter space through mirrors. Large, leaning mirrors can add a dramatic feature to your open plan living space whilst being practical in terms of light and use. Styling your mirrors with your existing home decor is an easy task and won’t cost you the earth either.

Play with the light

Lighting is a key part of open plan living as the aim is to ensure the space is kept bright and airy. Whether you have an open plan living dining room, kitchen dining space or living kitchen and dining area, we’ve got you covered.


Vertical blinds

Additional lighting

With lighting being an important part of open plan living, it’s good to consider adding lighting fixtures, whether it’s on the ceiling, floor or table. A statement ceiling lighting is guaranteed to bring interest to the room whilst being practical too.


Incorporate textures

Keep your home and space interesting through different textures. Whether it’s through wooden flooring, wallpaper or your blinds, there’s plenty of options. Small accessories such as rugs, throws and pillows could also help achieve a similar look and vibe without being too costly and can easily be switched out seasonally or as your interior design style changes.
