Updating your home with the latest interior design trends can be quite a complex task, particularly when you don’t know where to start.

Needless to say, design trends come and go with the change of time, in terms of style, colors and texture. Nonetheless, there are some trends will always be aesthetically alluring despite the ever-changing seasons. Let's see 6 of these trends and styles that fit specifically for HDB flats.


Curved arches

Once popular in older homes, they are making a major comeback even in modern, contemporary interiors. You can go with a segmental arch for traditional style, but if you want a more modern look, a clean, round arch is your answer.

In addition to entryways, we are also seeing plenty of curves on the ends of counters and tables. These are a great way to soften the edges and break up the visual, especially if you have a lot of clean, straight lines in the area.


Concealed entrances

If you have always wanted a secret doorway in your home because you read too many adventure books growing up, this trend is perfect for you. In addition to the more traditional ones, there's this with the hidden entryway from your bedroom into your bathroom.


The use or rattan

Rattan is a great way to inject a laidback, appeal to your space - it's durable, lightweight and versatile. It works in a variety of interior styles as well.


Vertical groove lines

Mermaid tiles

Also known as fish scale or scalloped tiles - you can place them right-side up (curve edge down), the other way around or even sideways, all of which will give you a different feel. It’s an interesting alternative to the more ubiquitous hexagon tiles.
