It’s inevitable – a lot of change has come into our lives due to Covid-19. If you’re one of the Singaporeans interested in finding a brand new BTO flat now, you probably know already that some construction delays have occurred because of the anti-pandemic measures. And while postponing your plans isn’t fun, that extra time can easily be put to good use.
Do you know exactly what your new home is going to look like?
If you aren’t confident, do spend some time thinking about interior design. The right interior design consultancy service can be very beneficial, as you’ll get to visualise and you’ll have readiness to commence the project as soon as you come into possession.
To get you thinking about the upcoming BTO renovation, we have the following suggestions for you.
We are visual creatures. Many people cannot imagine what their home is going to look like, unless they get an actual chance to see a project and plan specific aspects of the execution.
Having a professionally-created 3D interactive virtual tour developed specifically for your new BTO flat’s parameters will help you pinpoint all the details and the specifics you like. Such projects are executed by home interior design visual artists and they come as close to the actual home interior design as possible.
To benefit from a 3D visualisation, you need to work with a design team that understands your needs and the style you’re going for. Always check out the portfolio of designers and home renovation experts to find out if their experience is in line with what you’re looking for.
3D visualisations also give you a chance to pinpoint things that sound good on paper but that you don’t like all too much. The project can be edited to meet your criteria and to give you a very specific idea of your post-renovation home.
Use the Time to Find Your Inspiration
Is this going to be your first home renovation? If so, you may be at a loss on where to start.
BTO construction delays due to Covid-19 give you the time to research and find your inspiration. You can seek creative solutions from so many different sources of inspirations – from Pinterest, our interior design blog, to your current neighbour’s new flat.
Just like a 3D visualisation, this kind of inspiration shows you many details and elements you could find difficult to imagine otherwise. You’ll see many ideas executed in an array of ways and you’ll pick and choose the elements that you’d want to have in your home.
It’s a good idea to seek inspiration before reaching out to interior design professionals. By showing them what you like, you’ll make it easier for the team to do a good job and personalise the execution to your standards and aesthetics.
Visualise the Interior and Take at Least One Element Out
If you are not an interior design yourself, you might go overboard when adding stuff into the visualisation just because you can.
Here’s a simple rule that designers adhere to – simplicity speaks louder than overly elaborate designs.
Putting too much on display or featuring many elements with distinctive personalities will easily create visual and physical clutter. Eclectic designs can be a lot of fun but they need visual harmony and balance in order to work – something a trained eye or a professional interior designer will be able to put together easily.
If you’re trying to come up with your own visualisation, always remove one element from the “finished” project. Keeping designs functional and clean isn’t easy and you’ll discover the challenges as soon as you get started.
But worry not! Even if you don’t know how to approach the simplification of your interior design visualisation, there are professionals out there who can help. Designers like the Home Guide Interior Design Company knows what it takes to make a BTO flat comfortable without going overboard.
BTO construction delays also give you the time to hunt and buy some statement pieces for your flat. If you have a very specific taste and an artistic vision, you’ll soon find out that acquiring high quality pieces is not an easy task.
Art is one of the most enticing décor elements. It can instantly brighten up an apartment and give it a distinctive vibe. It can be sophisticated, modern, abstract, colourful, monochromatic and so many more things.
Many people are afraid of seeking and buying art because they’re not “connoisseurs.” Understand one thing, however. What matters in such instances is what brings you pleasure and makes you feel good, not what critics call a masterpiece.
Buying art should be an exciting process, it should feel almost as a treasure hunt. The extra time you will get due to construction delays is going to provide you with enough opportunities to research, refine your taste and pinpoint the distinctive pieces that will make your BTO flat unique.
