The Kitchen & Bathroom Design Podcast

08 Open plan vs Broken Plan

Episode Summary

This week we're looking at the evolution of open plan design into broken plan design - the idea that opening everything up in cavernous spaces isn't always the best way to achieve liveable design. We're joined by two excellent designers - Stephen Dick from Residence Interior Design and Dan Stronge from Jones Britain - to talk about how they interpret broken plan design principles in both kitchens and bathrooms. Are kitchen islands getting too big? How do you preserve the character of the building? Shoulds baths be in the bedroom? And, most importantly, did The Beatles invent open plan design....? Oh, and we hear a blatant shameless plug for www.thesethreerooms.com, our new consumer website spin off from Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms magazine. Don't forget to subscribe wherever you get your podcasts and we'd love it if you rate and leave a comment too.
