For the past two decades, open plan spaces have been the gold standard interior design choice in the home. However, since the pandemic hit the U.K. and offices were uprooted to people’s dining room tables, Brits are now starting to realise the benefits of having a few strategically placed walls in the home. By now, most will have established an area where they go to work, but for those who don’t have a designated office room, it can be tricky to maintain a separation between work and home life. A recent survey conducted by the IoD (Institute of Directors) found that 74% of company directors plan to continue flexible working after the pandemic. With the WFH lifestyle not going anywhere anytime soon, it’s never been more important for people to create a workspace that fosters productivity and creativity at home. Read on to find out how you can use ‘zoning’ to create work and leisure areas in your open plan spaces.... What is ‘zoning’? Zoning is the art of separating areas in a room according to their function, allowing homeowners to create boundaries without altering the architectural integrity of a space. The trend has grown in popularity over recent years, as open-plan and dual use rooms have become the norm. The rise of ‘vivid zonal’ In past years, zoning was largely achieved with rugs, furniture and muted colour blocking techniques. However, more and more people are now utilising bold colours and textures to achieve their zones, in a trend we’re calling ‘vivid zonal’. Characterised by primary shapes, bold colour blocking and mixed materials, ‘vivid zonal’ helps breathe new life into minimalist open plan interiors. Brightening up the home using colours and textures to create areas for work or relaxation, this post-modernist inspired trend is for those unafraid to experiment with unorthodox materials and features. Zoning through texture Along with a bold colour palette, texture is one of the best ways to create zones in an open plan space. Wall panelling is a great way to add depth and texture to a space, which will allow you to create a definite and separated professional work area without compromising your self-expression. Without a doubt, one of the greatest difficulties of working from home has to be finding a suitable area to feature in the background of a zoom call. Compared to wallpaper, wall panelling provides a more sophisticated appearance on a computer screen. Thanks to its versatility, it has a transformative effect on any space by creating an illusion of depth, height and character.
