Since Singaporean homes are small by design, it is now more challenging then ever to articulate your ideas in a fresh and uncluttered manner. Most homeowners have very elaborate ideas in mind for their renovations, but understand that it can be sometimes impossible to translate them within the context of your homes. So today, we’ve compiled 5 ways you can easily avoid making your homes feel visually cluttered while emulating a stylish design at the same time.
1. Plain walls + plain furniture
This living room feature wall features a highly gorgeous aesthetic without feeling overwhelming at all. This is because the plain white paint adorned on it makes it feel very spacious, and the sleek wood textured sideboard adds a decorative appeal to the whole ambiance without having too bold a presence within the ambiance. It’s the perfect blend of plain on plain that makes this space feel very attractive.
2. Neutral and whites
The best way to avoid making your homes feel uncluttered and graceful is by keeping the colour scheme neutral. However, that does not mean that your ambiance is going to be totally uninteresting. Take a look at this image – the skin coloured sofa with its patterned cushions and white backdrop creates a very sophisticated affair, but doesn’t seem off-putting at all.
3. Texture, not pattern
Sometimes, using simple texture instead of embellishing everything with patterns can make your spaces feel the epitome of chic. This bedroom interior design is the perfect representation of this technique. The wood textured wardrobe is highly elegant and is complemented really well by the plain white surroundings and the red bed cushions that adds contrast to the whole set up.
4. Light, the only decor
One of the best things to do while avoiding all sorts of visual clutter in your home interior designs is by simply using light as a decorative element. It is intangible, has the ability to transform the face of your interior designs, and feels really magical when used rightly in a space. This bathroom interior design is an excellent articulation of this technique.
5. A feature wall in an open space
The only time that you can create a highly elaborate feature wall in your interior designs is when the layout is as open. If you look at this kitchen, you’ll see how the peranaken tiles add a charismatic beauty to the space, but had it not been open, it may have seemed too overwhelming for a small area.
