An eclectic blend of rustic industrial interior design makes for a sleek and cosy home. Seemingly polarising in design and style, the newly renovated 4 room HDB resale home along Punggol Central is far from discordant.
As the homeowners work in the F&B industry, the HDB home represents their passions and personalities. Thus the surrounding environment is designed to be a medium to refuel their energies and spawn creativity.
Renovation of the 4 room HDB resale flat was completed with a budget of $50K.
What is the industrial rustic style? Why does this interior design theme work for this space?
Although the combination strikes as odd, the elements and design features work surprisingly well together. After all, both interior decoration styles are centred on making use of durable materials. Hence, peppered throughout the home are evidence of steely greys and dark, warm toned woods and kitsch decor. The bold, utilitarian elements of the industrial interior style is buffed by the friendly charms of a rustic interior.
For example, the kitchen island is a good example. The practicality of the kitchen island and its multi-compartment shelves beneath are compensated with a sleek marble Vulcan top. Shaker style kitchen cabinets in a combination of white and dark walnut wood laminate add to the rustic interior design style of this 4 room HDB resale flat.
The bedrooms in the HDB are kept intentionally minimalistic. Light colours light grey and soft pink create a relaxing ambience. Furthermore, the custom made full height wardrobe are in two toned laminates to add visual intrigue and height to the rooms.
As a resale HDB apartment, the tiles in the bathroom were completely hacked off and replaced with fresh ones. The tile design in the master bedroom is especially interesting. A mix of wood effect tiles in the semi-encased shower and marble tiles fulfil the rustic industrial look of organic and brute.
