Earthly and Scandinavian Interior Designs Meet In These 3-Room HDB Flats

The current era of the Covid-19 pandemic has forced a large majority of us to be confined to our homes for long periods of time. This makes one wonder and ponders over the home where we live and how we pass our time in it. We have realized the importance of a comfortable and cozy home that is not only beautiful but makes us feel comforted, safe, and productive.

When someone wants a change in their current home or wants to design a new one, they may come up with various ideas and themes to give them a start. But there is always room for inspiration and innovation from where one can take bits and pieces of the designs that they like and want to incorporate into their own homes.

If you own a 3-room HDB flat and want to renovate it, you have come to the right place! Here, we will describe some of the most beautiful and dreamy 3-room HDB flats designed by Space Factor where the dark and earthly tones of nature meet modern Scandinavian designs to produce eye-catching and most appealing interiors.

Harmonious Balance Between Dark Tones and Scandinavian Designs

In this beautiful interior design by Space Factor at Mei Ling, we see the dominant dark shades of blue, grey, and white that perfectly blend with each other. The blue is a darker shade of indigo that makes a contrast with the crisp, white walls. In the lounge, a grey sofa and grey carpet is contrasted with some part of a wall having this dark blue shade whereas all the other walls are kept white. This color scheme keeps the dramatic effect of the design while still making the room appear airy and fresh. The plain white walls may have appeared too plain and boring, so they have added a patterned wallpaper to one of the walls to further uplift the room’s appearance.

Similarly, the kitchen in this design also features the indigo blue colour for the cabinets which are contrasted with cream cabinet tops to add the perfect character to space. The floors and walls are kept of lighter tones so that the kitchen does not look crowded or congested.

For the bedroom and bathroom of this 3-room HDB, things are kept simple in line with the Scandinavian design by using just light wooden tones for the cupboards, doors, and bathroom cabinets. The wooden elements add a touch of wood grain and texture to the minimalist design. The toilet fixtures and walls are kept white to make the small area appear spacious. These wooden textures and white interior make a very appealing space even though the area is quite small.

Earthly Tones and Modern Lighting with a Touch of Scandinavian

The following example of a 3-room HDB flat in Eunos designed by Space Factor features a mix of dark colours, high-end contemporary furnishings, and statement lighting that helps to bring about a dramatic interior to the home. This design takes simple, clean, and crisp lines from the Scandinavian style and mixes them with earthly tones in a space where there isn’t much light. However, even in the absence of a lot of light, space does not appear gloomy or congested. This is because of the perfect selection of contemporary furniture, statement lighting, and other elements that help to enhance the earthly tones of the house. As a result, the home appears comfortable, cosy, and enchanting along with a dramatic effect.

Consider the living room of this design. It features dark brown shades in the wooden fixtures, sofas, curtains, and table. However, all these elements are enhanced by placing indirect and accent lighting at just the right spots. The wall is of a lighter shade to contrast the darker elements of the room but it has a wooden-patterned and textured wallpaper that goes in line with the earthly theme of the room.

The kitchen also features wooden cabinets and counters which are contrasted with white countertops. Again, accent lighting and spotlights help to enhance every element along with adding a dramatic effect to space. The floors are also light coloured in perfect balance with the other darker elements.

Another important feature of this design is that every room opens freely and connects with the other spaces of the house. The living area opens in the dining area which connects freely with the kitchen. The living area flows freely into the bedroom with frosted glass partitions instead of traditional doors. Recessed lighting in the bedroom again gives it a modern effect and does not make it look congested even though the room is quite small.

The bathroom in this HDB flat is also unique which features a separate toilet area and a stand-alone washing area. The washing area is kept simple with a washbasin and a wooden cabinet underneath. However, the accent lighting behind the round mirror and around the washbasin makes it look so modern and chic.

These different forms of modern lighting and the use of dark, earthly tones makes one wonder how much you can do and achieve in a small space. This combination makes the space modern yet comfortable. The earthly tones help one stay calm and focussed whereas the modern lighting adds just the spark of liveliness and hope that one requires.

Earthly and Wooden Tones Contrasting White Scandinavian Design

An interior design that features wooden and white themes gives a very fresh, modern, and elegant feel. Although it boasts simplicity, still it does not appear dull or boring. White is used to give an open and airy feel whereas wooden textures and colours give a very cosy and sophisticated vibe. And this is exactly what has been done in the following 3-room HDB flat at Gangsa Rd. In the living room, a very light tone of wood is used which is contrasted with darker furniture and white elements in the room. Spotlights are used to further enhance the appearance of the room and to make it look modern and chic. Frosted glass panels are used to separate the living room from the other area which adds a further touch of modernism to the design.

The kitchen is kept simple yet elegant by using white for the floors, walls, and cabinets. A little character is added to the design by keeping the countertops of oak coloured wood. The kitchen flows freely into the outer area where a wall mounted counter serves as a small table for dining. This design also features minimalism which adds a character to space.

The bedroom is also kept simple with oak coloured floors, a bed, and a walk-in closet. The walk-in closet helps to keep the clutter away and the bedroom looks organized and clutter-free all the time. The light oak-coloured elements are contrasted with a dark wrought iron table and chair which further uplifts the room’s design. A chandelier adds the final touch of elegance to the interior.
