Plan your finishesColours and materials can be used to both separate zones and give the space a coherent feel.“The key is to make the whole area feel connected while having marked areas of difference,” Chris says. “This can be achieved by having, for example, common flooring throughout, but different colour schemes for different areas that work tonally together. Alternatively, Chris suggests keeping your paintwork consistent and using different flooring to separate the kitchen, living and dining areas. “You can also unite different spaces with simple touches, such as furniture with a common finish and lighting in a similar style,” he adds.

Go halvesA half-height glass divider is enough to split office from dining area in this home, with a height change between the two areas and a change in floor finish also helping to separate the zone for one worker from the space for socialising. A smaller partition like this one is best employed when noise between the areas of an open-plan room isn’t an issue, whether that’s because two activities are equally quiet or the two zones won’t be used simultaneously.

Vary floor levels A good designer or architect will be able to help you plan a new space, or redesign an existing layout to meet your changing requirements. It may be possible to raise or lower the floor height in an area of your house to create a division between two spaces, like this office and dining room. Small, built-in cupboards can maximise your storage, adding to the functionality of an area without being obtrusive.

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.

Original steps down to kitchen plus new steps from living room down into new extension. I like the raised unit beside the steps - good use of space and prevents falling off the edge.
