A cozy open space: enjoying a Hygge, functional and chic environment.
Whether it’s one large room or a small one-room apartment, the open space has the ability to create more airy, light-filled spaces and makes the most of even the smallest of spaces.
There was a time when every room in the house had a specific function: the kitchen was strictly separated from the living room and the dining room was a separate room, where guests were received in a formal way.
Today, with the spread of open space spatial distribution both in the home and in the workplace, these divisions seem to have been overcome. The various rooms in the house ‘work’ as one large space, meeting people’s new needs in the best possible way.
Having fewer dividing walls means, first of all, gaining precious space. If you still want to divide the various rooms in the house, it is advisable to use furniture as dividers. In fact, placing a sofa or a couple of armchairs where there was a wall allows you to maintain a division of the room, gaining considerably in terms of openness and brightness.
In any case, when deciding to opt for an open space environment, it is always advisable to focus on the coherence of the furnishings, which means choosing a single decorative style valid for the whole house.
In a house where the different rooms communicate with each other, it is essential to include elements that can surprise and offer added value: handmade carpets, designer accessories, high-quality materials… Small tricks that can create a very welcoming environment.
If exploited in the right way, an open space environment will give a lot of satisfaction, especially in this period when multi-functionality, versatility and adaptability have become indispensable elements in everyday life.
