8 Open Concept Home Interiors For Bigger Spaces
Knocking down walls can be a great way to make the most of your existing space, whether it is to allow more natural light to flow through or to instantly create an airy and spacious feel. Not to mention how it can also lend a boutique loft feel to your entire apartment. If that is on your renovation agenda, then take cue from these 8 homes that have perfected the wall-less look.
But take note: Not all flats or apartments allow walls to be demolished and altered for safety purposes. Make sure you know exactly the extent of your wall hack and find out if this is permissible.
1. If you are one of those who often host a party, an open area for the living spaces like this makes interaction and mingling easier.

5. Take cue from this homeowner who replaced his or her walls with wood panelling. Extra points for the makeshift lounge area hidden behind the TV wall panel.

Cost of renovation: $40,000
6. In this apartment, doors replace walls as enclosures. Opt for sliding doors so that you can still open up the entire apartment for more room.
