Have no fear, figuring out the style for your flat simply requires some inspiration – and we have plenty. Open concept homes and flats have risen in popularity in recent times due to their unique and beneficial structure.

This first example of an open concept flat boasts a classic modern design with a muted colour scheme that ranges from monochrome colours to soft, earthy tones such as brown, grey and cream coloured furniture. The piece of artwork on the wall cleverly functions as an accent piece for the room, drawing attention to it and adding a ‘pop!’ of colour to the room. This is simple and elegant, perfect for those of you who enjoy some quiet and a peaceful space to relax.
This snazzy room certainly catches the eye, and is probably home to a few equally colourful personalities as well. The pitch black cupboard-bookcase contrasts well against the bright blue, green and cream-coloured elements in the room. It functions as a customizable and eye-catching means to display and organise your possessions. The green lawn mat together with the blue chaise sofa are interesting choices that may come off stark to the eye but complement each other in their brightness.

With a monochrome base and vibrant furniture reminiscent of IKEA together with a stylish kitchen bar, this home is certainly worth the cost of renovation.
