2. Modern: Perfect Space To Live In

The modern design is an interior design style that never goes wrong. Characterized by an earthy colour palette, clean lines and natural light, the modern design takes root from the aesthetic movement in the mid 20th century. If you wish to relive the mid 20th century, the modern design is the furnishing style that you should go for.

If you think that you need to be fancy and have complex designs to create a unique living room design, then you are wrong. When it comes to designing your living room, the adage “less is more” is a reminder that opting for simplistic, Japanese/Minimalist design can also create a great visual effect for your living room.

This is exemplified by the living room of this 5-room resale HDB at Compassvale Crescent.

The interior design firm (U-Home Interior Design Pte Ltd) kept the living room simple with sparse furniture like the TV console, coffee table and soft. It is complemented with the perfect choice of wooden elements (flooring, high chair) and the great use of natural lighting to make the living room bright, vibrant and spacious. The colour palette of white and grey also adds a tinge of soothing simplicity that adds the finishing touches to this Japanese/Minimalist design.

It almost feels as though the design is a sample photo taken from an apartment in Japan. As you enter the living room, you almost feel as though you just went on a quick trip to Japan.

4. Industrial: Rustic With Lots Of Personality

If you are looking for a cool, unique design for your living room, consider going for the industrial look. The industrial look is one of those design styles that gives the living room lots of personality that makes it a one-of-a-kind. It can even bring you back in time to the 18th century when the warehouse look was the go-to look.

This industrial design living room by Livspace will surely make an impression on your family and friends. Imagine walking down the HDB corridor then entering the home to this industrial design living room.

The living room design stresses a lot on the unfinished, rustic elements. Yet, at the same time, it still maintains a modern look for the living room.

But it is never an easy task to pull off an industrial look for an HDB. If you go overboard on the unfinished touches, you end up making the home look like a factory. If you make too little industrial touches, it doesn’t give the home the industrial personality that the homeowner is looking for.

However, with the right interior design firm like Livspace, you can be rest assured that they will pull off a tough industrial design for you.
