Even though most Singaporeans reside in HDB flats and condominiums, many also reside in landed residences. These landed houses in Singapore can range from 200 square metres to more than 1,400 square metres and, if the interior design is poor, can sometimes feel empty and chilly.
If you want to improve your landed house interior design, here are some suggestions you can consider. You can also discuss this with your interior designer and request that they include these components in the design of your home.
1. Warm Color Schemes
Cool colours, such as green, blue, and purple, generate thoughts of serenity and melancholy, while their muted counterparts, such as grey, may also create feelings of melancholy and indifference. Warm colours, on the other hand, typically elicit a range of feelings, from comfort and warmth to rage. When applied properly, these hues make expansive areas seem safe and welcome.
A blend of warm and cool colours may also make the design of a landed property appear inviting and private. Warm hues can be utilised as a foundation colour on most walls, while cool hues can be introduced via ornamental decorations, accent walls, or accent furnishings.
Contemplate hues like beige, brown, soft yellow, and pink. Cream hues provide a mellow and tranquil environment, whilst brown inspires a sense of stability and is warm and inviting, pastel yellow evokes joy. It is frequently connected with laughing and pink soothes and is associated with sentiments of love and kindness.
2. Integrate Spaces
Use parquet flooring or Peranakan tiles for linking spaces with similar floor patterns. The same flooring design throughout the property will offer a clean, uniform, and continuous impression. However, having different flooring patterns will make the rooms appear separate.
If you are an obsessive collector of designer furniture or artwork, you may opt to accent empty hallways with vintage tea table sets or a magnificent chaise lounge. Artwork or murals can also be hung on bare walls to make a home appear complete and inviting without appearing cluttered or claustrophobic.
3. Incorporate Greenery
It is believed that plants may boost your mood, focus, and productivity and make you feel more at ease and comfortable. In addition, adding plants may infuse a house with a sense of energy, elevate moods, and instil pleasant emotions that encourage family members to be more energetic and active. In addition, they are a great way to fill empty spaces with visual intrigue, colour, and vitality.
4. Cozy and Comfortable Fabrics
There are several interior design styles around the globe, with the cosiest appearing ones typically including natural or raw materials. However, adding a few textures and matte surfaces to a huge home may quickly alter its ambience.
Consider purchasing more wood, cloth, and rattan home furnishings and fewer metal, glass, and shiny materials. Adding a fluffy rug here and there, putting rattan into your lamp fixtures, and draping a plush blanket over your fabric sofa are a few methods to create a sense of cosiness.
5. Huge Furnishings
Tiny furniture occupies much less floor area, making your home appear chilly and empty. However, if you were to decorate your living room with huge modular couches, accent chairs, a one-of-a-kind coffee table, and a giant TV feature wall, your home would seem immediately more put together and inviting, as if it were awaiting the arrival of the family for movie night.
It is not difficult to make the interior of a landed property appear warm and inviting. Instead of spending days worrying about how to change large rooms, why not seek the advice and skills of a professional interior designer and allow them to design the home of your dreams?
