Styling Rooms by Zoning , an exclusive Interview with Julia Kendall from DIY SOS talks through how to create open plan designs
“With the growing trend for open plan living and large wet areas, there are endless possibilities to creatively zone areas by adding character and distinctive style with tiles, mosaics and warm woods. Zoning multiple areas to identify individual functional spaces can work just as successfully in large rooms as it can in the most bijoux of spaces.
“As kitchens and bathrooms have become multifunctional spaces in the home, creating separate, distinct zones will keep a sense of order and create boundaries. Tiles are an excellent design tool for zoning each function of an open plan room to suit your needs and a must have feature in today’s open plan living designs.
“For kitchen and dining areas, consider the function of each area and define it by choosing a practical flooring option suitable for cooking, eating and socializing.
“For wet areas, a wet room allows the showering area to blend naturally with the rest of the room and with the use of mosaics you really can create something to be marveled at, whilst still providing slip resistance.”
