One of the challenges of designing a condominium unit in Singapore is the relatively limited space.  But just because space is limited doesn’t mean your condo interior design should be limited as well. True enough, there are a number of design hacks that you can take advantage of to create the illusion of a larger space.

Listed below are some condo interior design ideas you might want to consider to enhance your small space.

Condo Interior Design Tips: How to Make Your Home Look Bigger

The right condo interior design and furnishings can create the illusion of a more spacious area no matter how limited your floor space is. When decorating your condominium unit, keep in mind the following designer tricks:

  1. Create the illusion of a larger room with a light color scheme. Stay away from dark and bright colors and opt for pastels and neutrals instead, especially white, as it gives off a clean and spacious vibe. When changing your condo interior design, make sure not to neglect the floors and ceilings. In addition to light-colored walls, open up your space further with light-colored flooring. Consider repainting your ceiling with a light color as well to create the illusion of a higher ceiling.
  2. Go monochromatic.Instead of mixing a lot of different colors on your condo interior design, pick a single color and play with different shades and textures instead. Employ a monochromatic color scheme in choosing your furniture and rugs as well.
  3. Limit your accessories. To avoid the cluttered feeling, avoid too many accessories, especially the smaller ones. Use bigger statement pieces and place them in strategic areas for a chic and more spacious condo interior design. In addition, avoid putting too many and too bulky pieces of furniture. To maximize limited space, use a love seat instead of a full-sized sofa.

Condo Interior Design Mistakes You Should Avoid

While the right condo interior design can make your space look larger, certain design mistakes can make your area appear smaller and more cluttered. Here are 2 common design mistakes you should be wary of:

  1. Beware of mirrors. While hanging a mirror can give the impression of larger space, it can also double the clutter by reflecting the objects already in the room. In order to use a mirror to your advantage, hang it in places where there are less objects and more space. Alternatively, you can create the illusion of open space by using glass. Switch up your wooden tables with a glass-top to keep the appearance of free space.
  2. Pushing all furniture against the wall. Contrary to popular belief, having all furniture against the wall makes a room appear cramped rather than spacious. Keep your sofa and chairs huddled away from the walls to create the illusion of a larger space and to allow easy movement.

Your condo interior design can make all the difference. With the right arrangement and furnishings, you can create the illusion of a larger space without having to increase your floor area.
