Adding a Touch of Class to Your Home Interiors


While we might not all have huge budgets to spend on our interior design schemes, there are a number of clever, affordable ways to add a touch of class to our homes without breaking the budget. 

In the Living Room

When it comes to your living room, less is sometimes more. In this Hillbre 28 apartment, an expensive marble has been used as a feature wall backing an elegant display space. The use of tone-on-tone greys and pale timber has continued the elegant streamlined look, with another stand-out feature - the modern chandelier - adding one more touch of luxury.

By paying attention to the small details like the recessed ceiling lighting, decorative screens and luxurious fabrics, this Bellewaters apartment ensures this small space looks luxurious. The pale colour scheme of this interior design stops the living space from looking overcrowded or cluttered in this small apartment.

Sometimes adding a great big chandelier and faux moulding can look more tacky than classy. In this D'Leedon apartment the design could have been too much, but the use of simple lines, lots of white and other muted tones is just enough to save it.

While it can be fabulous to choose an interior design scheme from a particular time period like Louis XV, you do need to be careful to not take the concept so far that it starts to look like a movie set. The living room of this Yung Kuang Road apartment has just the right number of modern touches to ensure it is classy and not too Hollywood.

In the Bedroom

The darkly glamorous bedroom of this Jalan Pemimpin apartment shows how to use mirrors and chandeliers in a modern, elegant way perfectly. By keeping to a tone-on-tone colour scheme with few strong shades, the soft light is reflected in a subtle way by the mirrored surfaces.

Adding patterns to a space can a great way to inject a touch of class to a room, but remember to keep them subtle and the colour schemes muted as what has been done with this Elias Green Condo bedroom.

As with living room spaces, sticking to a particular historical theme for your interior design scheme can veer into looking tacky. Remember to add touches of modern elegance to your decor to keep the space looking classy. The bedroom of this Woodlands Ring Road apartment is almost too much but the simple painted walls help keep the balance.

In the Dining Room

Touches of gold can always be used to add class. The dining space and kitchen of this Garden Vista apartment has a fabulous balance of blue, white, timber and gold.

It might be a breakfast bar, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be stunningly elegant! The design of the marble-topped, built-in dining area of this Yung Kuang Road apartment kitchen has to be one of the most elegant ways to add glamour to your everyday life.

In the Kitchen

If your kitchen space is open plan it is worth investing in some fabulous finished like the faux-marble tiles and sculptural lighting in this Jalan Pemimpin apartment kitchen.

The eat-in kitchen of this Yung Ping Road apartment has a spectacular sweep of marble benchtops matched with gold hardware, giving the space a super classy feel. Matching gold-toned pendant feature lighting highlights the length and space of the room.

In the Bathroom

A fabulous place to indulge as much as you can is the bathroom. Bathrooms are generally smaller spaces in the home, so you can afford to splash out on more expensive materials like in this marble and gold bathroom at The Draycott. Even the hardware for the cool glass-panelled shower space is gold in this apartment bathroom!

For a luxury hotel suite vibe, add a glamorous chandelier to your bathroom space, like the one in The Vision @ West Coast bathroom.

What could be more elegant and luxurious than an actual ‘gold’ hand basin? We love the whole dark and glamorous design of the bathroom in this Bukit Batok Street 22 apartment.

Designed by: Design 4 Space

A classy bathroom doesn’t have to be dark and covered in gold, you can choose to create a beautifully minimalist space that will look just as luxurious. The marble-clad bathroom of this Holland Road Semi Detached home is classy and simple at the same time.

As with kitchen and dining spaces, adding gold-toned hardware is a fantastic way to add a touch of class to your bathroom space. The bathroom at this Country Park Condo also has an amazing free-standing clawfoot tub! What could be classier than that?
