Spaces are becoming more open planned in this decade than ever before.
More traditional homes can easily be modernized by breaking down some interior walls and extending patios with aluminium fold up doors to allow for easy flow and modern living.
Kitchens with ease of access to living and out door living areas epitomize modern luxury lifestyles.
When planning this type of Renovation, start with the kitchen and see what walls can open onto your dining room, then lounge. Ascertain if you can build a patio or extend your existing patio. Put in the fold up doors or French doors to open up onto the patio.
This will make your eye follow through to the garden and make the space seem at least three times bigger.
Then follow my plan of neutral wall and floor colours that almost are the same, with a crisp white ceiling.
