Calling all BTO and new homeowners, are you excited to hit the ground running on renovating your new abode? We’re sure that’s a resounding yes! Next is arguably the most challenging part – deciding on a concept for your home. Scrolling through photos of fully renovated homes hoping for some interior design inspirations would probably not help as the options can seem endless.

To help narrow it down, we curated the most popular renovation themes for you to consider.

Let’s dive in!

1. Industrial

This renovation style is distinctively unconventional, turning the tables on meticulously renovated homes with unique features like exposed brick walls and pipes, raw “undone” finishes, the almost steampunk light fixtures that will draw the eyes up and the darker colour palette for an edgy vibe so synonymous with this particular concept.

If you’re working with a small space, tread carefully with this renovation style as the darker tones could potentially make the home look smaller. Instead, the look can still be achieved with the other design elements. You can read our guide on wall colours to transform your home for inspiration.

2. Muji

This famous franchise that first opened in Japan has now captured the hearts of many. Their signature, neutral-wooden-minimal style has risen to such heights that the Muji aesthetic is now a sought-after renovation concept. In order to nail their distinctive style, all the wooden furnishings in the home should be practical and frill-free. Think of nifty storage compartments that can be concealed such as in the bed’s pullout and benches.

Another Muji signature? Their clean, “less is more” sensibilities. Stick to purely whites and wooden tones with an interior design that emphasises practicality.

3. Peranakan-inspired

Not shy in embracing bold prints? You’ll love a Peranakan-inspired concept that’s been gaining traction with millennial homeowners these past few years. Breaking from the mould of your run of the mill, single colour floor tiles, the signature Peranakan prints not only photographs beautifully but it also provides a breath of fresh air to the home and gives it a more unique character that will definitely elicit compliments from your guests come house warming time.

However, it’s easy to go overboard with prints so exercise prudence and be sure to pair it with more neutral tiles/patterns.

4. Monotone

If you gravitate towards sleek lines, and a dedicated black and white colour palette to achieve that contemporary, sophisticated feel, the monotone concept is your best bet. Devoid of other, potentially distracting colours, your home will feel easy on the eyes, contemporary and most importantly, effortlessly “cool”.

The monotone looks best when it is contrasting with each other, such as dark floors and a white wall, black cabinets with white countertops, etc. Add some accent colours to liven up the space as well such as grey throw pillows and green potted plants.

These days, we have so many sources of inspiration to look to for potential home renovation concepts that it can easily get our heads in a tizzy. The important thing in finding out what works best for you is to understand your household needs, personal style and most importantly, your renovation budget.
