No matter what kind of an interior design theme you want to emulate in your homes, shelves are an integral part of it. They come in all shapes, sizes, and styles which makes it hard for the homeowners to choose one for their homes. So today, we’ll be looking at some of the most iconic and universally beloved shelf design trends in the Singaporean market. Here they are:
1. The corner shelf duality
So, the dining nook in all Singaporean homes is designed in an otherwise redundant alcove. To make this setting more interesting, the backwall and the corner wall extension are always designed with horizontal linear shelves. Some of them are topped off with mirror claddings while others are installed with recessed lighting. Sometimes they even merge into each other at the corner.
2. Modular wall shelves
These days, wall shelves are designed to accommodate the size and concept of a room. So they are actually created and arranged in a modular format. Some of them vary in colour, but it doesn’t have to be that way completely. It totally depends on what kind of a concept you have going on for a certain room. Note that these are usually used for study rooms and bedrooms.
3. Platform drawer shelves
Platform beds with pullout drawers have become quite a popular interior design trend and are quite handy to boot. They fully utilize the space under the bed and can be used to stow away any and all cutter. Their handles aren’t usually visible and they can’t be used for display so they’re not the ‘conventional’ kind of shelves. But you can install them with toe-kick lights for a more glam effect.
4. Floating shelves
Floating shelves are classy and interesting. They can be articulated in any number of designs – horizontal, vertical, abstract, and more. Parts of them can even be enclosed. They can be cladded in all sorts of material texture – high gloss, simple matt, wooden, or more. They’re usually installed on accent or media walls for the full effect.
5. Inverted L-shaped table shelves
These usually double as furniture – mostly end tables or nightstands. They’re incredibly stylish and complement minimalist or modern contemporary themed interior designs super well. They’re usually balanced against other built-in wall units and can be embellished with a lot of small accessories and baubles.
