We’re all always looking for some awesome interior design interventions to make our homes look better and more finished than before. While you may have entire Pinterest boards and Instagram channels dedicated to such ventures, it’s always helpful to have some ideas that fit the context just right. So today, we’ll be featuring 5 amazing design interventions that would be perfectly within the context of Singapore.
1. French windows
Window designs for HDB flats are highly susceptible to the Housing Board Rules. For example, you cannot make the window portal any bigger or smaller than it is without getting permits from the respective authorities. But once you do, you can totally go for a unique window design to make it the highlight of your space. French windows are a total hit with the netizens these days and look gorgeous when customized to suit the HDB style.
2. Side table decor
Side table decorations are some of the most underrated part of the overall interior design. What you put on them can totally have an impact on the overall design of the bedroom. Therefore, it is important to pick the right selection of accessories for them. You can create a perfect combination with a photo frame, some books and a small statement decoration piece.
3. Under-cabinet lighting
Under-cabinet lighting is a great way to enhance the look of your typical kitchen. These lights tend to make even the most stereotyped space seem like a fresh start. So if you feel like your kitchen is looking outdated and conventional, then fitting it with under cabinet lighting can have a drastic impact on the overall look of its design.
4. Customized study desks
Study desks mostly tend to be designed in a mass-produced, conventional way. However, you can go for a unique, customized design like in the image above. Instead of taking the typical way of designing straight-laced cabinets, the designers have gone for a more oblique and distinct approach with bold lines and stand-out designs. Its overall impact is quite stunning.
5. Making alcoves
Every home needs a small alcove for the residents to have some alone time. You can go for a bay-window setting by designing an inbuilt bench with hidden storage beside the window. This is a great way to utilize the window space and get some extra storage in the process.
