Creating a cohesive home environment is a blend of functionality, aesthetics, and a personal touch. However, sometimes, despite our best efforts, our homes just don't feel 'right'. Here are six reasons why this might be the case, and tips on how you can solve these issues.
Today's Singaporean homes are moving towards prioritising meaningful objects. It's the thoughtful selection of furniture and decorations that resonate with the homeowners that create a warm and personal space. If your home feels impersonal, consider incorporating vintage furniture and unique pieces that hold importance to you. This could be anything from a cherished family heirloom to a piece of art that sparks joy.
The trend in 2023 leans towards more dramatic design with deep and darker paints, warm hues, and natural brown tones. However, using bold colours and decorations without a well-thought-out plan can make a space feel smaller and disjointed. Strive for balance with the right lighting and furniture combinations to transform your space into something more personal and dramatic.
Nature-inspired interior design is a prevailing trend. Wooden furniture, rattan items, and lots of greens can liven up a neutral design?1?. If your home lacks a cohesive feel, it could be because it's missing natural elements. Try incorporating more nature-inspired pieces and colours to create a refreshing theme.
Thoughtfully designed furniture pieces with well-refined details can add to the sophistication of your interior design. If your furniture feels like a collection of mismatched pieces, consider investing in well-curated furniture that complements each other and your overall design theme.
2023 is a year of emphasis on self-care and wellness, and part of this is creating an organised, clutter-free oasis. A disorganised space can disrupt the flow of your home and make it feel less cohesive. To solve this, consider implementing closed-shelving and glass-door storage solutions that can keep clutter at bay.
Singapore's HDB flats have always required smart space utilisation. Now, the trend is moving towards 'right-sizing' rather than downsizing, especially for multigenerational homes and households that often host gatherings. If your home feels cramped or unused, it may be due to not effectively utilising multi-functional spaces. Assess your home's configuration and make necessary changes to ensure all spaces are optimised.
