If you'd love to go open plan but don't want to extend, then the latest episode of the Real Homes Show is for you. We've rounded up everything you need to know before demolishing internal walls, from how much it'll cost, to smart storage ideas. Tune in now to take a look around an open plan kitchen diner that was created by taking down an internal wall.
Also in this episode of our online TV show, sponsored by Velux, we've got the lowdown on smart audio systems and advice on timeless interior design. Plus, we put window cleaners to the test – does a £1.99 cloth get windows as clean as a £69.99 Karcher window vacuum? Watch now to find out.
