The most common problem faced by Singaporean homeowners is that there is very little real estate for them to work with while revamping their homes. However, using levels can be an excellent way to counter this problem. If you’re searching for some ideas and inspirations within this genre, then you’ll find these 5 tips to be highly useful:
1. Floating shelves
One of the interior design objects that take up the most space in any home are shelves. You can rectify this by going for open, floating shelves. They not only provide leveled surfaces for décor, but are a great way to make your spaces feel open and welcoming at the same time.
2. Levels as wall-mount
Sometimes, when you don’t have space for separate furniture, you can use inherently designed levels such as wall mount dinning benches and sofas to make the most of your space. These look absolutely great and are a pragmatic way to utilize the best parts of your space. You can pair them up with gorgeous lighting and separate furniture to get a great overall effect.
3. Accommodate as aesthetic by designing tall
Have a small bedroom where a typical bed cannot fit? No problem at all! Not only can you design your own platform bed to create levels within your bedroom, but you can also accommodate this aesthetic by designing tall, open compartment shelves within your wardrobe. It’ll enhance the organizational value of your homes and look great at the same time.
4. Level the home study
Don’t have any room for a separate home study within your humble abodes? We’ve got the perfect solution. If you compartmentalize your living room with levels, you can use the back for a small study/work nook of your own. It’s not exactly separate, but it is the next best thing that you can get in such a small amount of space. Besides, the level up or internal decking creates a great illusion of privacy and compartmentalization.
5. Visually dynamic
Levels are not just used in a space for functional purposes. Sometimes, they can be used for purely aesthetic reasons as well – especially when you want to make your spaces as visually dynamic as possible. Just take a look at the gorgeously tended levels of the separation shelf in this image. It makes the whole space feel much more livable and aesthetically pleasing.
