Modern condo design is not just about creating a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing living space; it is also about making a personal statement. When it comes to the latest trends in condo design, Singapore is not far behind. Here are some design trends that are sweeping the city-state in 2017.
Walls with shiny black surface
Black is beautiful, and it is especially so when used creatively on the walls, floors and furniture. It makes the entire living space look dramatic and artistic. Covering the walls with black or a combination of black and white adds an aura of luxury and refinement to the living space. An eye-catching contrast will then be created with a white sofa and coffee table.
Emphasis on greenery
In this age of concrete jungles, the thirst for nature or things that look natural is growing. Condo developers try to incorporate as much greenery in their design as they can. One excellent example is Martin Modern in Singapore, a state-of-the-art condo located in District 9. In the absence of space for greenery, some designers use the colour green on walls, doors and furniture to evoke nature and freshness.
More open spaces
The more open space you have in your home, the more spacious and grandiose it looks. Therefore, one popular trend is to leave as much interior open space as possible. Walk into any modern condo, and you will immediately notice how spacious it looks. On closer inspection, you may find that it’s an illusion created by clever use of colours, texture and furniture layout.
A touch of the Scandinavian
Scandinavian design is known for its simplicity, functionality and connection to the outdoor. When properly implemented, it gives the room an elegant and spacious look. No one who walks into a room with a Scandinavian interior design leaves unimpressed. This is why such interiors are so popular. You can see a touch of Scandinavian interior in every condo design these days.
Black and white marbles
Black and white marbles make an exquisite combination in a living space. Mostly used in the bathroom and kitchen, they give the entire space a chic and elegant look. You can also use them on the dining table and coffee table. One popular pattern is the chessboard pattern.
Mix and match tiles
Tiles are not great just on the floor; they can also be used on the walls to create beautiful and eye-catching patterns. The current trend is to mix and match tiles of different types and colours, which help create a cheerful and relaxed atmosphere.
Terracotta exposed bricks
Terracotta exposed bricks are used to accent the walls and give the room a quaint and nostalgic look. You can use them on both indoor and outdoor walls. The trick is to use the bricks in such a way that it catches one’s eyes while blending seamlessly with the overall décor of the room.
The term “ultramodern” is almost synonymous with success and affluence which is why ultramodern condos are so popular with young and ambitious Singaporeans. Visit any new condominium showflats in Singapore, and you will find yourself marvelling at the ultramodern décor they have.
