If you think that’s good, though, then you should probably remove your socks, because this HDB makeover will blow them right off.

HDB Flat Got a Makeover & Now Looks Like the Interior of a Mansion

The owner of an HDB executive maisonette in Pasir Ris certainly chose the right interior designer.

On Tuesday (25 Aug), Stoneridge Construction Pte Ltd, an interior design company specialising in HDB renovations, shared pictures of their latest project. 

This is what they were presented with:

You’re probably wondering where the designer got all that extra space from; they didn’t pull it out of their butts, of course.

The high ceiling and hardwood floor finish make this area an inviting and airy space, doing away with the cramped, compact feel of the initial design.

The space just outside the kitchen also looks like the inside of a hotel on a hill station, with those large windows inviting pools of sunlight.

Bathrooms

One of the most important areas in a renovation is the bathroom because you want to feel as fancy as possible while pooping.

This was the old bathroom:

The new bathroom has a much cleaner and contemporary look, with the addition of a bathtub for much-needed bubble baths.

Their new kitchen also looks like the kind you see in serviced apartments, and even comes with a rotatable faucet.

Bedroom

Designers often focus their attention on the bedrooms, because well, that’s where the magic happens. 

The flat’s new bedroom has the same hardwood flooring as the ground floor and looks like a modern yet snug space.
