Who says you have to stick to the cookie-cutter floor plan provided? It’s your house - create your own rules! After all, it’s you who know your needs best.

These seven houses show us how it’s done with interesting layouts that make you think about reorienting your space.


1. Opting for an eclectic style with quirky flourishes and unexpected pairings, this home’s surprising layout and demarcation of living areas is a refreshing change. We’re especially loving the running hexagonal motifs around the house that add a playful vibe to the warm, homely space.

6. Grandeur is the name of the game with a dramatic full length bow window that adds a regal touch. The more narrow, linear layout and a challenge of a triangular kitchen seemed to work to the home’s advantage in the end, where the interior designers worked around it to maximise space and functionality, creating a long, vast openness.
