If you watch DIY shows on TV, the most frequently repeated phrase might be”open concept”.”Did you know that even in website design, you can make your way to an Open Concept layout? This design trend is more than a DIY idea.
Open concepts is a fun and functional visual template that allows users to navigate your site while controlling digital clutter. So do it with 10 mini matter studies and examples!
Open Concept Primer
In residential design is an open concept in which several rooms come together in a way that has a flow that maximizes space From one room to another, for example a large floor plan for a kitchen and living room.
In web design, the Concept is very similar. An open concept layout creates an excellent flow between the elements in a bright and airy way. The Design maximizes the use of white space and uses simple elements with lots of Harmony, balance and simple flow.
The use of color can be bold or simplified and the pages can contain a short or long parchment.
These layouts often work best with a detailed Plan and design process that ends with a single call to action. Trying to mix and adjust too many elements and parts can create a mess. When working with an open concept design trend, it should be borne in mind that the visual flow should be obvious to users so that they know exactly what to do with the Design and how to navigate it.
GrowX uses an excellent combination of white space, clean images and text, as well as a nice feature with a domed header to mix elements in an open space.
The overlay effect used here for text and images is a common technique in open concept designs. Using layers can help drag the user from one element to another and keep the visual flow moving.
The caution with open concept designs is that users can get lost in space. Thanks to a clever” trick ” and layered elements, users know exactly where to look on this site.
While most open concept ideas make you immediately think of white space, which is actually white, NooFlow proves that color can be just as amazing.
The Design mixes elements with a balanced text-image design in an almost split-screen aesthetic. What brings everything together is that the color palette is clear, but simple. By eliminating other nuances, the Open Design has a flow that looks easy and encourages users to move around the Design.
Open Wear uses a full split screen concept, but with directed images that move users to the content.
This Design looks even more open thanks to the selection of photos. The content here is suitable for a lot of white in images that balance the white background. Overall, the visual outline feels airy and fresh, although there are plenty of visual elements and entry points.
Think of the same design with a photo on the left, which is usually dark. This would change the whole design concept and flow.
Brightscout creates a diagonal flow from Logo and Navigation to text elements to an image (or vice versa, depending on where your eye goes first).
The open concept here looks and works in the same way as the floor plan of a house with the design technique of the same name. There are different entry points with imaginary lines that tell the user where to go next.
And the call to action is accentuated by a big button and color. The functionality is obvious and simple.
Excessive use of space is a common topic when it comes to open concepts. Space tells the user where one thing ends and another begins.
Duotix uses this space model throughout the design to create a visual distinction between content blocks, each with its own calls to action. In addition, white and colored backgrounds alternate on scrolling to keep the user moving. (This is where the open concept flow comes in.)
With Parallax scrolling and, Simple animation and extreme margins, PopularCays, creates multiple spaces for content while providing functionality.
Images and text are attractive, especially when combined with animated effects.
The beauty of this Design is that it shows that several trends can work together to create something that is not overwhelming but has a decidedly modern feel. It takes the right kind of content to create a Design with multiple trends, and in general, simpler content plans work better.
Like some other examples, Abel overlays elements to move the eye from one element to another. The good thing about this Version of the Open Concept plan is that a lot of the space is at the top of the page with heavier elements underneath.
The same visual theme continues on the parchment with spaces above and below the elements to create separate spaces in the open concept design.
This example shows that not all ecommerce sites need to have a full and cluttered feeling to be effective.
The good thing about Hampshire Light Design is that it uses an open web layout for a home design product. (Talk about trends moving from digital to body!)
What characterizes this Design is the use of asymmetrical space and bright colors. Everything in the Design involves an open and airy feel, from yellow accents to transparent typography to the image and the open “h” Logo.
Another important detail in this design is the exaggerated line spacing. The lighter sans-serif font might have been a risky choice, but thanks to short lines of text and spaces, it contributes to the overall feel of the open concept.
With subtle Animation, soft colors and lots of space, you can think of high ceilings and possibilities at Walking Men. The simple design structure includes one content element per page with a fun Click-to-Scroll function.
The aesthetic is open and constant and the User has the feeling of moving From one room to another, even if it is (theoretically) in a one-sided Format.
Crux could embody the open floor plan of my own home, with the heaviest design elements pushed to the outer edges.
The Center’s Logo and call to Action provide an obvious focus to prevent other elements from being overloaded or moved. Navigation to the bottom of the page aggregates all of this as a kind of roadmap for pen design, which might be a bit difficult to navigate for some users with its almost round shape with no unique entry or exit points.
Chances are you’re already incorporating open concepts into your designs. Is this a trend you like?
We see the open Concept design trend as something with a little perseverance, because it is rooted in design theory. Layouts that use space well will never go out of fashion (even if what we call them changes over time).
