This is an award-winning design and there are innumerable ideas to steal from this 5-room HDB. Apart from being practical, the homeowners also wanted their home to be edgy and industrial-themed. This excitement expresses itself in their design interior Singapore home that is filled with bold lighting effects, insightful design choices, and intriguingly dark finishes. Borrow these ideas from this design interior Singapore HDB, to nail the look:

  • Cement screed walls for that unfinished, industrial look
  • Greys, dark wood shades and accents of black
  • Layered lighting to highlight the right design features
  • Kitchen island stocked with storage
  • Wrought-iron pendant lights

“Livspace helped us connect with an interior designer, who was perfect for us. We weren’t looking for something safe and Jake’s concepts and ideas were bold and in sync with what we wanted. We consulted Jake to pick the appropriate lighting and furnishings too. The quality of the workmanship is also great! The cement screeding on the entire house looks great so far. It is fair to say that the contractors managed to deliver on the design we requested.”
