Creating a Sense of Flow in the Home: The Basics

Published: 23/02/2016   Last Updated: 03/03/2016 14:29:02   Tags: Renovations, Home,

Creating a sense of flow might sound a bit new age but it’s a very simple concept. While there are plenty of home styling tips that take inspiration from holistic practices such as Feng Shui, what we’re talking about here is simply making space. However, it’s not just the creation of any old additional space in the home, but the creation of the right kind of space. In this instance, think of the term ‘flow’ in the context of ease of access and open, connected spaces.

There can be a lot more to creating flow if you want delve deeper into the various methods used to create positive flow in a home, but the following ideas are good basics to start with to see if it’s something you might be interested in doing for your own house.

Knock Through Non-Structural Walls

Most of these ideas will depend entirely on the lay out of each individual home, and that’s especially the case when it comes to knocking through walls. But if your home features a separate dining room and living room, or any kind of spare room downstairs, then you should seriously consider removing the dividing wall (assuming it is a non-structural wall). While you technically ‘lose’ a room, you have actually created a huge living area which features less of the divisions that can impede the natural flow of the home.

Remove Kitchen Islands

If you have an enormous kitchen, then a kitchen island might be ideal for your circumstances, but beyond that they can take up unnecessary space and cause blockages in the flow. These blockages are areas that are awkward to access or cause a space to appear smaller or more cramped than it actually is. Kitchen islands can make a kitchen feel so much smaller, so if you are not living in a home with a huge kitchen that practically swallows up the island then start imagining the space without it.

Remove Unnecessary Doors

There are so many homes which feature hallways with an abundance of doors leading off them. This creates the impression that the hallway is a separate entity with little purpose other than to lead you to other rooms. But if you remove the unnecessary doors you can incorporate the hallway into the rooms it leads onto. Do you really need doors on the living room, the dining room and the kitchen? Possibly you do, but if not then remove them so the hallway feels almost like an extension of the rooms it is connected to rather than a closed-off space with little purpose beyond its basic function.

In the future, we will have more blogs detailing more advanced tips and tricks to help open up the right kind of space in the home and create that magical-sounding ‘flow’. Such amendments to a house will not only improve your every day living experience, but can also make your property a much more attractive proposition to a prospective buyer.
