Singapore interior design companies have had to adapt to the new trend because its impact on home interior design has been massive.
For a start, co-living spaces have to be created for much larger groups of individuals. They surpass jumbo flats in Singapore that have to cater to the needs of several generations living together. The scale is bigger, the number of rooms is bigger and there also need to be common amenities/rooms that should be sufficient to accommodate everyone.
Co-living spaces are often described as micro societies with their dynamics, routines and rules. Serviced bedrooms and bathrooms for all of the flat’s residents are an absolute essential. Interior design concepts that also make highly effective use of the available space are also very important.
The availability of storage space could be a big problem in a co-living apartment. Keep in mind that most of these properties aren’t constructed for the specific purpose. Hence, a Singapore interior designer will have to modify the space through the use of hidden storage compartments, multi-purpose furniture and other intelligent choices bound to optimize what’s already available.
The living room and the kitchen are usually the two spaces that are focal. These are open to everyone and traffic control in the areas is incredibly important.
Larger tables, numerous chairs and a sufficient number of appliances will be required in the co-living environment. The good news is that the cost per piece is brought down to minimum due to the number of inhabitants. As a result, interior designers enjoy a lot of freedom when it comes to picking furnishings and accessories.
Co-living is green in its very essence and to appeal to a millennial audience, the interior design could also provide additional opportunities for bringing down the environmental footprint of the property.
Finally, technology is very important.
Good wi-fi, recharge stations, remote connectivity and home automation all appeal to a millennial crowd. The same applies to the availability of large screens in the apartment or an entire multimedia room that can be used for entertainment or educational purposes.
Many interior designers today are excited by the co-living concept. While it creates various challenges that have to be overcome, co-living also provides opportunities for the development of new and spectacular interior designs the world hasn’t seen before.
It’s also an exciting thing to bring together the elements that make the community great with the comforts that individuals need in their privacy.
Co-living is all about the elimination of redundant items, conservation of resources, collaboration and communication. It takes a skilled interior designer to bring all of these concepts together in a masterful way.
