As a homeowner, you’re always on the lookout for the best ideas that can help you improve the overall outlook and ambiance of your home. You might have hundreds of fully categorized Pinterest boards with an infinite number of décor ideas, but what designers know from experience is always unparalleled and more authentic than anything else! So today, we’re going to be sharing some of the best kept décor secrets that can help you transform your home!
1. Wall desk home study
Working from home – whether you’re officially employed or as a freelancer which is becoming more and more common in Singapore these days. While most people stick in a huge desk and call it a day, the sleeker way to design a study would be to go for a customized, in-built wall-desk for multiple people. It’s both efficient and visually pleasant!
2. Mirrors and glass
Singapore’s distinct lack of affordable real estate can be a huge challenge to work around for most homeowners. So what you can do to get past this problem is to use lots of glass and mirrors in your homes. Glass walls can help you create a nice, transparent effect that visually connects the places while retaining psychological barriers, while mirrors can help create the illusion of double the space!
3. A minimalist attitude
Keeping a minimalist attitude while designing your homes is one of the best kept secrets of the design world. It helps rid the spaces of all visual and physical clutter and is the best possible way to retain the essence of a space. Of course you can indulge in a little embellishment, but at the end of the day embracing simplicity is the best course of action.
4. Contrast is always small
While creating contrast in interior designs is no secret, the ratio of this contrast remains an undercover mystery. Well, we’re here to tell you that contrast only looks beautiful when it’s emulated in small doses throughout the space. Going for all sorts of colors and texture will only ruin the understated elegance of your designs.
5. Don’t be afraid of asymmetry
So sometimes, you’ll face the choice of opting for a straight-laced or an asymmetric layout in your home interiors. While the simpler choice may always seem more pragmatic, don’t be afraid to go for a little asymmetry as well. This is how you create the most interesting spaces, after all.
