Often, the modern style is imbued in HDBs without proper context or a soul. This is a style that requires a lot of thought before being implemented in a space. There are so many ideas to filter from, and so many ways things can go wrong. This is why we’re here to share a beautiful modern style home that can be your inspiration for a new renovation project!
1. The best of minimalism
The first and foremost rule of modernism is to be minimal with your accessories and decorations. This is where man people fall short, but the living room interior design in this image can be your guide. Here, the furniture is the only essential decorative part of the design and even that is very classy and simple. Even the windows are dressed in simple roller blinds, and the material finishes are extremely smooth. This is a great way to implement the modern style in your HDB interior designs.
2. Intangible decor
When you’re not allowed to use physical decorative objects then it’s time to think out of the box. You may want to use intangible sources of décor. Lighting is the best example of that. While you may have a classic central light fixture, using recessed ceiling lights to create a nice ambient effect is also a nice way to decorate a sparse, modern interior design.
It is important to restrain yourself with the material choices when it comes to modern interior designs. Using too much diversity can cause visual clutter, which is a big no-no in modernism. So try to emulate homogeneity – which basically means using same, smooth materials with hardly any breaks in a major part of your interior designs.
4. Sleek and classy
No modern material can ever look complete without sleek and classy visuals. The best way to emulate these in your interior designs is to use the proper material finishes. While matt looks very chic, it is the glossy finish that makes the space look ritzy. You can couple this finish with some good lighting to get a great modern aesthetic in your homes.
5. Less Is More
In order to get a truly on-point modern interior design, you must be very careful about not going overboard with the aesthetic. Be as simple and straightforward with the design as possible. The material finishes should be very plain and there should be zero frou-frou decorations to make this style authentic.
