5 Clever Ways To Emulate Transparency In Your Small Interior Designs

Transparency basically refers to emulating an open and ‘see-through’ concept in your interior designs in order to make them seem more spacious. It’s a concept that is used in small spaces to complement an open-floor concept to the fullest. It can be accomplished in a lot of ways and further, we’ll be taking a look at 5 clever ways you can incorporate transparency in your HDB interior designs.

Creating a nice half-statement wall that complements the circulation space is a good way to emulate transparency in your HDB interior designs. On the one hand, it creates an interesting visual scheme, while on the other hand it makes the circulation and transition spaces seem less monotonous and boring in contrast.

 

2. Glass walls

Glass walls are another great way to emulate transparency in your interior designs. You can create them in the public and semi-public zones of your homes. These look especially great in the kitchen. They also allow you to conceal half of the space while highlighting the other half at the same time.

 

3. Doors and partitions

It’s important to emulate transparency in the doors and partitions of the public zones of a home. Totally enclosed spaces tend to look narrow and constrained. With the help of transparency you can use bold colors and fixtures to make your spaces seem more trendy and stylistic.

 

4. Bi-fold doors

In case you want to retain privacy in some parts of your home, but only at certain times, you can go for bi-fold doors to emulate transparency. With the help of these you can enclose the spaces whenever you feel like it and open them up when you need your home to look open and spacious. These doors are best suited for spaces like study rooms, living areas and even bedrooms.

 

5. Leave it open ended

Open ended interior designs are the ones where you have a solid end to the one side and an open ending to the other. For example, in the living room in this image, the window and its accompanying seat are the ‘closed end.’ While the opposite end opens into a wide circulation space which makes the ‘open end.’ The open end emulates inherent transparency in the interior design.
