What Houzz contributors are saying:
Slot in a studyThis home study is separated from the main living area by three short steps and a half-height glass wall. These create a clear boundary that stops overspill between one function and another. Having different textures – the exposed brick wall, in this case – and different flooring (wood versus tiles) further adds to the demarcation. Before planning your broken-plan space, think about what you miss in your current home and what works where; not everyone wants a study downstairs, for example.
Invest in vintage-style storageTake inspiration from Victorian sculleries and old-school cupboards when planning your dining room storage. Built-in pantries pair well with industrial design because of their utilitarian nature and associations of efficiency. Choose glass doors and a dark paint colour for added impact.
