An Industrial-Chic HDB Flat That Combines Comfort With Unique Style

It is no wonder why the industrial interior style is popular with Singaporean homeowners. Functional and striking at the same time, this style is perfect for compact homes. However, some homeowners are adding their own personal touches to this trendy style. A great example of this is this four-room HDB flat in Toh Yi Drive designed by three-d conceptwerke. Displaying classic industrial elements such as exposed brick walls metal edged furniture and a smattering of unfinished surfaces, the home takes it a notch further by incorporating eclectic furnishings to create a personal haven that is unique and cosy.

The living room is a comfortable den with its industrial-chic style. Here, an exposed red brick feature wall, grey concrete-like flooring and rustic furniture come together to create an utterly liveable setting. Adding to the bright and airy ambience is the simple window treatment comprising of basic blinds and invisible grilles – the better to allow plenty of natural light to flow through the 1,063-square foot abode.

Adjacent to the living space is the kitchen. Taking on a decidedly classier set-up, the cooking zone features honeycomb floor tiles and white glossy subway tiles that effectively create a larger-looking space, which are complemented by white Shaker-style cabinets.

The master bedroom also sports a classy ambience thanks to the choice of furnishings. Taking up pride of place in the sleeping zone is the plush bed with its tufted headboard. Other interesting accents in the room include a series of hanging glass pendant lights, a vanity mirror outlined with light bulbs and a decorative birdcage.

For storage, the team at three-d conceptwerke created a built-in wardrobe to resemble container cargo boxes. Taking a leaf from industrial design, the wardrobe features tap handles and typography decals. It has been positioned perpendicularly to the worktop to produce different scenic effects when the sun casts a shadow.
