Function and aesthetics go hand in hand when it comes to interior designing, but many people keep focusing on one half of this equation. It’s important to understand that both parts have to be used hand in hand to deliver a truly great space. Today, we’ll be taking a look at 5 interior designs that have managed to get the best of both worlds. Let’s take a look:
1. The living room with a gym
Let’s be honest – going to the gym and putting in the time is a huge chore that nobody likes. But what if you could soften the toughness of this routine by setting your own little gym up in the living room. This image shows how you can reconcile the functional and visual aspects of this setting in the most attractive and feasible of ways without breaking up the context of either situation.
2. Simple bedroom with visual panache
Bedrooms in Singaporean homes are usually kept on the small and simple side, but that doesn’t mean you cannot add a lot of visual versatility to their function. The bedroom featured in this image is a great combination of both visual and pragmatic elements. The bed, the wardrobe, and even the nightstands have been specifically designed to add panache to the whole ambiance.
3. Backsplash vs. placement
When it comes to balancing aesthetics and functionality in a bathroom, you have to be especially careful. Visuals in such a space can only refer to the tiles and fixtures, but functionality comes in the form of placement, organization, and usability. The backsplash in this image creates a pattern contrast which helps balance out the largely functional aspects of the room.
4. Another dual purposed living room
As mentioned previously, the living room is the perfect bonding ground for both functional and visual aspects of an interior design, and this living room come study area is only a testament to how you can get creative with more ideas. The sleek desk at the back of the sofa inspires a very modern look, but it’s actually the compact organization of all these elements that feel truly inspiring.
5. Extending to the dining table
The dining table is mostly just relegated to the nook as an individualized set-up, but you can enhance the pragmatic and visual qualities of this space by joining it with the kitchen island. The set-up featured in this image is a pretty great example of how you can use this technique in your own homes.
