5 Interior Design Tricks to Create More Space

5 Interior Design Tricks to Create More Space

As we all know, Singapore is a country that is big on interior design, but extremely short on space. While the HDB housing allotment system allows maximum residents to become home owners, the short availability of real-estate has made sure that these homes are quite small in size. Therefore, residential interior design has become the pinnacle of clever hacks and creative layout systems that make the most of that limited amount of space.

Local designers all over have come up with a number of intelligent techniques that can help make your HDB interiors look spacious and liveable. Further, we’ll be taking a look at 5 of these amazing techniques that have become quite common. They’re simple to use, and can definitely make your space seem larger and more spacious.

Use white

Using white colour as a backdrop for your designs is one of the most effective and clever hacks to make the most of your small-style residential interior designs. Too much colours used in too little a space can definitely seem overwhelming. But if you use white as a base for small splashes of colour for the rest of your interior design, it will actually make your space look a lot more relevant and beautiful. Moreover, white colour has the ability to reflect light. So if you use that for the majority of your wall-floor-ceiling design, your space will immediately start to look bigger and better in an effortless way.

Use natural light

Natural light is not only healthy intervention for your residential interior designs, but it also has the ability to create illusions of a wider, more capacious space. Therefore, large windows are increasingly becoming the new interior design norm in Singapore. With the advent in window coverings, this trend is taking off in quite an explosive way. The inherent and illusory ability of natural light to widen up spaces is a simple but great way to bring out the best in your HDB interior design.

Use looking mirrors

If nothing else is working for you, then the looking mirror design hack is a fool-proof trick to create more space in your residential interior design. No matter how illusory it might be, if you clad even a single feature wall in a full-size looking mirror, you’ll immediately feel like you have more breathing room in your homes. You can even play with the possibility of mirror art to introduce a more stylistic vibe in your interior design. It will not only create the illusion of more space, but lend a beautiful decorative vibe to your designs as well.

Design open-floor layouts

An open-floor concept is slowing becoming the new norm in the Singapore interior design industry. Nobody wants to live in a home with permanent brick walls separating clearly public zones of their house. The kitchen, dining area and living room are always designed in a neat open floor concept these days. This design concept automatically creates a more spacious aura in your HDB interior designs by getting rid of all physical visual obstructions that might otherwise hinder the eye.

The idea of “Transparency”

Transparency is a great way to interconnect spaces in your original interior design while still retaining some psychological boundaries. It can make your residential interior design look infinitely more spacious without taking down the physical boundaries between spaces. this is why the introduction of ‘half-walls’ and ‘full glass walls’ have become such a hit in the Singapore design industry.
