We have all seen beautifully done up condominiums and landed homes but well renovated and decorated flats? Not so much.
But with so many young people getting their own HDB pads now, it is not surprising to see an increase in really interesting and lovely interior designs, even in a 3-bedroom flat.
Here are 10 of the most beautiful HDB flats in Singapore today.
If black and white is what you desire, then the monochromatic design will work for you. Elegant in its simplicity, this colour scheme will make any home a classy and hip getaway from the world outside.
This is especially popular with smaller flats. This is a popular concept amongst many young people nowadays as it makes the space look bigger and airier, and there are lesser walls that make the place look cramp. A gorgeous home paired with the utmost simplicity.
Your cosy corner
You don’t have to have a huge apartment to attain a cosy corner. Now, even with a small flat, you can turn it into a quaint little place that is so charming and so cute!
This concept will ring well for those who love their café hopping and have always dreamed of living out of one. Here’s your chance. Instead of having to leave your home to go to a café to enjoy the ambience there, why not design your home into one and enjoy café living every day of your life?
Possibly my favourite design of all time. The minimalist concept is, although very attractive, comes with a few sacrifices too. For one, it’s called minimalist for a reason – you cannot have too many furniture and loose items lying around the place. However, that aside, this design makes for a very cosy and comfortable home where you can add your own edge into and rock your own living quarters.
The Studio apartment / Industrial look
I love studio apartments and I do love the industrial look. It just gives the home that creative feel, almost like I was a painter or some kind of artist living out of a loft. With an uneven cement screed floor, it adds a rebellious feel to the whole place.
If you prefer your home to be a little more opulent, this concept will work for you. This usually comes with carpets, plush sofas and a widescreen television to complete the look. If you are worried your 3-room flat will not be able to take the look, you can always install more mirrors around the house to make the place look bigger and still be able to live like royalty.
Many young flat owners have resorted to doing their own designs on their walls and even their furniture to exude their own characters and attitudes. Adding in your own personal flavour can definitely make the place feel more homely and close to your heart.
Ahoy there mate!
If you know the local blogger, Xiaxue, you will remember that her home is nautical themed and it is pretty amazing. This just goes to show that if you are willing to put in some effort, you can do whatever concept you want to your home.
The green thumb
While there are those who prefer the industrial look, there are some who enjoy having a small garden to plant some flowers and greenery to brighten up the place. A section of the home, usually the balcony, can be set aside to create a little area that resembles a miniature Botanic Gardens
