When it comes to open-plan spaces, at Galliard we know best. Over recent years – particularly with new-build homes – open-plan living spaces have become the new norm. Not only do they allow a home to flow without the interruption of walls, but they also enable families to socialize in one central location. Here are our top ten Galliard open-plan designs.
