Few homes benefit from the luxury of a separate office, yet the demands of modern life mean that most of us need one. From working from home, children with homework to complete and household paperwork to get through – all too often we make do with an awkward corner, making it difficult to switch off and relax when tasks are completed.
Whilst the concept of open plan living works perfectly for larger interiors, the smaller space in the average UK home needs imaginative planning to accommodate needs whilst maintaining clutter free appeal. Today’s spaces need to be multi-functional.
Leading German kitchen manufacturer Schüller know that today’s kitchen should offer so much more than simply cooking and dining. Creating defined areas such as an office space or somewhere to gather with family and friends. Spaces that integrate effortlessly with the rest of the home are the perfect solution for meeting the demands of modern life.
“Open plan living used to mean simply creating a united dining and kitchen area, but this no longer reflects the needs of everyone. Creating a functional space is now a really important factor for many, ” says Wayne Dance, Managing Director of InHouse.
“With the flexible grid system for planning and the multitude of planning options in the schüller.C collection, we create living spaces to combine kitchen, dining, office and family life – all in coherent, stylish and robust designs.”
The Biella range is the perfect example. Open display shelving, wall hung cabinets and co-ordinated décor panels allow for a united space that perfectly match the needs of multi functional living. A clever drop down fronts shuts the office space away in an instant – perfect for being able to switch off and relax in the evening.
“Modern life can be complex,” says Dance, “And whilst designs must meet our needs, it is equally important that they create a relaxing and stylish setting once the computer is turned off. Utilizing flexible planning and design options is not just about affordability, it is about making the home work for the individuals and this is what Schüller does best.”
Retail prices for a Biella kitchen start from £178.88 plus vat for a 600mm base unit excluding VAT.
The Biella collection is available from Schüller’s UK network of retailers. For details please contact InHouse Inspired Room Design at www.inhouseuk.net or call 01661 842304.
