Since the beauty of Scandinavian style interior designs has reached the epitome of global appreciation, they can now be found in every corner of the world. Homes in every continent, country, and city are emulating its bright yet cozy aesthetic to the point that it may soon become very typical. So today, we’ll be bringing you these 5 unique Scandinavian style elements to redefine typical. Let’s take a look:
1. Unique curtain pleats
Here’s the thing; anybody can hang up sheer curtains to enhance those large Scandinavian inspired windows, but very few homeowners take the time to actually make them unique. They just go for the typical fabric with conventional top pleats. But you can beat this trend by going the extra mile and choosing a uniquely dyed sheer fabric for your curtains while embellishing it with an unconventional pleat. You can use rod pockets, pencil pleats, tab tops and more.
2. Wooden frames for doors/partitions
Aluminum door frames have become so common in contemporary interior designs that going back to wooden ones can seem like a very unique thing indeed. You can add a distinct look to your Scandinavian style interior designs by retaining the glass partition or bifold look – but exchange aluminum for wood frames. Alternatively, you could even choose powder coated aluminum frames with wood textures.
3. Fluted wooden decor
Fluted wooden décor is one of those design elements that can never go wrong. It emulates a rather simple look, but when used to decorate plain walls, it can seem like a total trendsetter. You can execute this aesthetic in a number of ways to make your Scandinavian style interiors look more interesting. You can design round-edged hidden walls, simple accent walls, and more in this style.
4. Wooden bay window seating
Bay window seating is another underrated Scandinavian style trend that very few implement in their homes – especially in Singapore. But it’s quite a handy addition to interior designs; more so when you’re a little short on storage spaces. You can simply design hidden storage compartments under the top lid of your seating and keep all of your extra essentials in there to maintain a clutter-free ambiance.
5. Emulating Zen
Lastly, you can evoke a little bit of a Zen vibe in your homes by using the Japanese shouji-style look in your Scandinavian interiors. It has a very relaxing aura. You don’t even have to use actual rice-paper screens for it. You can simply use contemporary wardrobe doors or sliding doors to achieve this look.
