Will this be the year for a ‘big move’ or will you be better off staying put and improving your current home? In today’s uncertain economic environment many of us are choosing to sit tight and see what happens, but if storage and lifestyle are two reasons why you want to move, you may want to re-think the layout of your home opting for open plan living.
Contemporary Open Plan Lounge
Open plan living has now become part of our everyday lives, allowing us to have more shared moments with family and friends. You may decide to open up your kitchen, lounge and dining room; if this is the case, then you need to have a good understanding of how you are going to use the space. Keep in mind not everyone wants to be in the same room all the time, create a layout that has smaller quiet zones or tucked away areas to sit and work. It means everyone can be together while they use the room to do their own thing. So, before you raise the ‘For Sale’ sign on a home you love, why not see if you can maximise the space you have – and potentially add thousands to its value. Whether that’s converting your loft, expanding your lounge or making use of those tricky box rooms.
Loft Conversion Office
1. Convert your loft
Your loft could be transformed into whatever you want it to be; a cinema room, a home study/ snug or a luxurious master bedroom complete with en-suite and even a dressing room. Things to consider include skylights, structural reinforcements, a staircase, lighting, heating and fire safety. If your loft has awkward architectural features such as sloping ceilings and wooden beams bespoke fitted furniture can be hand-built in-situ to meet your exact requirements ensuring no space is wasted. Creating floor-to-ceiling storage maximises your room’s potential, giving it instant style and purpose. Your builder or local council will be able to advise you on the permissions needed before work begins.
Walk In Wardrobe
2. Transform your box room
Do you have a bedroom that’s just a little too small? These spaces can be transformed into stunning walk in wardrobes that will free up cluttered corners in your bedroom. Design a luxurious dressing area with mirrors, dedicated wardrobe space and glass fronted drawers, the perfect solution if you have limited storage in the master bedroom, or if you just love fashion. Best of all, decluttering the room you sleep in will allow it to look and feel larger making you feel instantly organised and less stressed.
3. Open up your living space
Having one large room can look a bit bare, so it’s essential to create clearly defined zones. Give each area personality using colour, lighting, different flooring, rugs and furniture. Bespoke furniture can be designed to partition areas of a room or create much needed extra storage bringing a whole new lease of life to your home. Whether you’re doing things together or individually an open plan space can be designed and tailored to your exact specifications. Even in the largest of living spaces, you can cleverly incorporate quiet reading zones, relaxed toy free areas, desk space and places to gather and watch films as a family.
Bright Spacious Study
4. Create a space to work
Smart planning can make the most of the tightest corners and can even add value to your home in the long run. Create a zone for work or study. Handmade furniture that’s specially designed for your technology or paperwork will keep your living areas free from clutter. You’ll also feel more relaxed in your living spaces and kitchen if you’re not working in areas where you also ‘wind down,’
Don’t forget, design ideas such as Crittall room dividers or opening up windows can maximise the flow of light through large spaces, giving interest and depth to your open plan room.

From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire
A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
Richard Smith, Surrey
From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Pauline Treston, Northumberland
The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
Cherry Murdoch, London
From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.
Judith Scorer, Stockport
From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.
Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull
Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.
Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire
From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!
Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe
I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.
Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham
From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
Alison Cole, Swinton
