12 best HDB living room designs to be inspired by

For part one of our mini series on gorgeous HDB designs, we’ve decided to shine the spotlight on the living room. The living room is possibly the most important place in a home. It’s usually the first room you see the moment you walk into—which means you cannot understate the importance of the living room’s design, and it’s usually a communal zone for entertaining and familial bonding—thus requiring it to be functional too.

Here are 12 HDB living rooms that meet both form and function.

1. A play on wood

Strips of wood envelop the entire living room area, which blends in with the verdant scenery outside the window. It gives the area a warmth that one cannot get with other materials. The daylight that enters in helps to make sure the area isn’t too dark. Indent shelves keep things less cluttered, while providing the space necessary for media units and other display items.

2. Pops of colour

This communal space is defined by a Peranakan-inspired statement wall to one side and large paintings on another. Elsewhere, bright pops of colour in the form of quirky furnishings are allowed to stand out against a white backdrop.

3. Soften the look

If you love the industrial style, but unsure if the jarring look is for you, soften the edges with soft furnishings and greenery. Potted plants, a throw slung casually over the armchair and vibrant cushions help to bring life to this severe space. The living room still retains its warehouse charm, notably through the black piping snaking through the white brick wall.

4. Industrial revolution

The metal hooks intentionally affixed on the entire ceiling are perhaps what draw one’s immediate attention. They provide an element of design, while serving to hold up the many cables left exposed and running across the industrial-themed room. In keeping with the theme, the walls and flooring are given a cement screed finish, while the brown leather sofa and the large area rug inject warmth.

5. Cosy up

A full-length feature wall lends visual height to this space. Covered in cement-screed lookalike laminates, it provides a focal point but it does not take full attention away from the rest of the elements in the living room. The plants and the vibrant hues from the pouffe and cushions help to jazz up an otherwise muted colour scheme.

6. Looking down

The main drama in this open-plan home is in the flooring. Retro-style tiles are used to delineate the different zones, while the rest of the home is swathed in white. Lightweight, translucent curtains that bring in some of the light keep things airy and bright.

7. Taking inspiration from Muji

Save for the sandy CraftStone brick wall, this cosy space adopts more of a minimalist, Japanese-inspired aesthetic with the pared-back, warm wood furniture. Earth tones, spots of grey and white also define the space. There is little ornamentation, and everything is set to look clean and uncluttered.

8. Contemporary beauty

If the contemporary style is more up your alley, take a leaf out of this design. Clean, strong lines, minimal decor and a basic colour palette contribute to the sense of this open, expansive space. The only thing that truly stands out is the wall divider, crafted from panels swathed in laminates of different brown shades. Cove lighting and the indented design add an element of interest in the ceiling.

9. Factory fun

The hallmark of a true industrial design? A real brick wall. Here, it’s making a statement in this petite-sized room. Pair it with other utilitarian elements like cement screed surfaces, track lighting and dark wood. Notice the metal casing tubes fixed on both sides of the TV that serve to hold up the speakers.

10. Mixing it up

What makes this living room so interesting is the variety of textures and motifs within the space. For instance, the TV console is set against a wood-bordered backdrop made from panels of black corrugated metal. For more seating options, the designer decided to go with a fun, tartan-patterned banquette bench that conjoins the main sofa. The walls are peppered with a variety of wallpapers, including one with a brick pattern and another with a motif of the Eiffel Tower. What ties the whole room together are the masculine hues.

11. Hanging on

If you’re a bicycle enthusiast, you might want to consider turning your two-wheeler into works of art at home. Plus, it’s also space-saving! For the industrial look, why settle for a conventional brick wall when you can have a hip, unfinished one?

12. Go bold or go home

Nothing makes a statement like a bold shade of red. In this living room, it is in the fiery hue of the sofa. A large abstract painting mirrors the vintage-looking rug, while the bay window displays oriental elements to lend the simple space character.
