In an increasingly changing society, where access to information and new roles and functions entail a constant evolution in our daily lives, all sectors are aligned to meet these current needs, and construction can not be less. Nowadays, the Open Concept trend or Diaphanous Spaces in the definition of any new housing or rehabilitation project is gaining more and more followers. Gone are the houses divided into independent and often small rooms. The open and multifunctional spaces where to create different atmospheres according to the rhythm of current life have all the protagonism in contemporary constructions.
What are the advantages of the Open Concept trend in a dwelling?
- Greater Lighting and Ventilation for the entire stay. Without partitions that prevent the passage of light and air, the gain in comfort is total. It also achieves greater amplitude and a sense of rest and relaxation, eliminating the potential stress that can cause a small space full of things and providing an image of cleanliness and order at a glance.
- Functionality. The Diaphanous Spaces allow to eliminate areas of the house with little utility, such as the hall, and integrate them into others with greater function. This case is very common when creating a unique space for kitchen, living room and entrance. In addition, it takes more advantage of the house since we eliminate doors and accesses that suppose many meters disabled.
- Versatility. The Open Concept trend allows you to change the environment easily. The open spaces offer many decorative possibilities as they are not limited by the size of the room. Thus, by varying the combination of furniture, textiles and other decorative elements we manage to create diverse environments in an affordable way and in a short time. All these resources also allow us to establish differences within the space according to the functions performed by each zone at a given time. For example, extend or shorten the dining area with respect to the rest part of the room, etc.
- The Diaphanous Spaces favor Sociability. The best example is the rooms that include kitchen and living room at the same time. It is possibly the area of the house that more members of the family gather at the same time and this conception of the space helps to have greater communication and collaboration in the tasks among all its components. In addition, this distribution requires to be more orderly and not leave food, kitchen utensils or dirty household off-site.
