Imbuing style and catering to space management can be a challenging task, especially in the space starved real estate landscape of Singapore. However, many designers have successfully managed to integrate both concepts within Singaporean homes, and we’re here today to tell you just how. Let’s take a look at 5 foolproof ways to make your homes stylish and spacious at the same time!
1. Managing colors and materials
The first step for blending style with spaciousness is creating a harmony between your color and material scheme. If you take a look at this image, you’ll see how the dominantly white color scheme has been artfully articulated through the stylish white laminates. The overall look emulates a spacious and trendy vibe without compromising the integrity of the space.
2. Creating tunnel vision
Creating the ‘tunnel vision’ effect in your homes can be especially challenging and depends completely on the layout. Basically, you’re creating a sense of transparency and visual links between all the spaces to ensure that all the design elements are equally spread out. Or alternatively, you can have one big design element at the end of the space like the bookcase in this image!
3. Distributing the visual clutter
Visual clutter basically consists of all the furniture, accessories and in-built elements in a space. By ‘distributing’ the visual clutter equally throughout the space, you can emulate a trendy stylishness in your homes. You can go for single piece feature furniture objects and set up stylish accessories at the same time.
4. Creating rhythm
Visual rhythm is important because it helps the mind create connection between all the different elements in an interior design. It also lets us introduce stylish design elements as well. The rotating doors in this image are a great example. All three of them create a nice visual attraction that act as both a design element as well as a trendy functional entity.
Lastly, you must understand that selecting the most fashion forward furniture and accessories for your home interiors is not the end of the deal. You must select them based on the size and proportions of your room. Always make sure that you have lots of circulation space instead of focusing only on the design of the furnishings.
