Small homes are a Singaporean staple, but do you know how to actually manage them? Well, below we’ve listed some useful tips that can help you get started. Let’s take a look:
1. Smartly proportioned furniture
Nothing makes a small space more unmanageable than oversized gaudy furniture. So, the best way to make the most of such homes is by going for well-proportioned right-scaled furniture items that leave a lot of circulation space for you to roam around. This image shows some great examples for you to get inspired from.
2. Semi-transparent partitions
Obviously, you can’t really have a full-fledged separation wall in a small space. Going for a transparent one is the best option in such cases. You can manage these walls in a cozy way by going for semi-transparent ideas. They can feature elaborate designs a la CNC laser cut partitions or can be simple vertical mullions as featured in this image.
3. Simple but statement-worthy walls
You must be thinking: how can a statement-worthy wall be simple? Well, it can and it is! Statement worthy ideas don’t always have to be bold and flashy. They can be understated and elegant while still having a visual impact. Just take a look at the glass wall with gorgeous black framing in this image – it’s gorgeous, understated, and very chic; all while making an impressive statement in the rest of the kitchen ambiance.
4. Classy furniture
The ‘scandi-modern’ aesthetic is the new definition of upscale sophistication, which is why you can furnish your spaces with beds, sofas, end tables, and nightstands that feature this style. Not only will it help you spruce up the ambiance, but it can also emulate a very stylish, a la mode atmosphere that suits the overall simplicity of your home aesthetic really well.
5. Statement floors
If you cannot figure out any other way to make a simple space feel interesting and welcoming, you can simply go for a statement floor. While the upper half of a room can be done in a minimalist fashion, the bold pattern on the floor can help you make a fashionable statement without undermining the cozy attractiveness that befalls the overall ambiance this way.
