Open plan design is prominent within the Australian housing market. It combines living, kitchen and dining areas to create both a functional and aesthetically pleasing area. Open plan design often connects internal and external areas, brings the “outside in” and allows more natural light in whilst creating the illusion of more space.
A survey by the Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia (REBAA) has revealed open plan living is at the top of the list for what makes a “perfect home” in Australia.
“In Melbourne the demand is for alfresco dining, stylish, modern and bright design features with lots of natural light and stone bench tops,” said REBAA president Rich Harvey.
