It’s all open-concept these days when it comes to interior design, and it’s easy to understand why. Open-concept living spaces increase the level of functionality our homes have, and they make it easier to entertain or to keep an eye on the kids while making dinner. Of course, while open-concept spaces are popular for good reason, the principles of good design for open-concept spaces are not well known.
For example, if you have a dining room in your open-concept living space, do you know how to create enough separation between it and the other living spaces surrounding it? Should the dining room be directly adjacent to the kitchen, or should there be a living room or family room in between? What about colors, fabrics and materials?
