The apartment needed to be completely re-designed by Home Guide to transform the interior design from old and tired to warm and contemporary. The palette was chosen to produce a feeling of comfort leading to a look of easy luxury. Timber laminates included colours from ash to chestnut and hazelnut and natural stone-look finishes were used in the living room and kitchen to compliment those natural hues. A 360 degree tour of the home gives exclusive access to the whole space – experience it for yourself.
Another important feature of the project was to redesign the floor layout to ensure efficient utilisation of spaces that were originally awkward and essentially, wasted. Walls were removed in the bathroom and kitchen making them more spacious and the main bedroom was moved to the 2nd floor to take advantage of the balcony and views.
Home Guide responded to the challenge of making this small home larger through smart interior design methods in an effective and stylish way. White tones were used to reflect light off every surface possible and all possible storage was built-in, pulling clutter toward the walls and clearing an open flow path. The final trick to increase space was to add mirrored elements which can double the sense of spaciousness.
Home guide chose a beautiful light wood to be used for its living room, setting the tone for this Scandinavian inspired family home. White wall paint was chosen for majority of walls, with certain areas picked out in darker shades to create depth and interest. Custom storage units were created to ensure a clean and clutter free space like that of Scandinavian styled homes.
Home Guide achieved the contemporary look using a combination of luxe materials and a very clear and consistent palette of black and charcoal, on white. Customized built-in cabinetry allowed for ample storage, eradicating the need to clutter up central floor space. This style of Singapore interior design has created spaciousness that provided the flexibility for different functions, ranging from the creation of an intimate quiet home for the family to enjoy privately, or to cater to large number of guests during gatherings.
A minimalist, contemporary interior design concept was created for this home based on a monotone palette. To ensure the space did not become too cold or impersonal, our residential interior design team included visual focal point by introducing pattern and textures in the monotone finishes through unique Moroccan tiles. Specially designed cabinetry was created for each room to ensure ample storage solutions measured to the space and requirements.
Home guide began the project by identifying the different elements that were to be included in the open living space and then defining each area with a clever use of screens and lighting. Every HDB home interior design that we have completed each have their own characteristics and definition of what makes them extraordinary. The success of this particular project lies in the use of dark finishes throughout, creating a classic visual language coupled with simple modern lines and materials. A library area was created which displays an impressive book collection, while the bar cabinets glitter with crystal and liquor bottles glinting behind their doors like intriguing jewels.
Singapore interior design often requires a clever use of space by doubling up functions in dedicated zones, to ensure a maximisation of square meterage. Home guide managed to do just that and created a multifunctional and efficient home for the owners of this apartment, providing ample storage and an element of fun.
A stark white palette was used to create a clean canvas against which accent pop of colour stands out with the sunshine yellow wall and bright teal sofa. Additional storage areas were created under the stairs and in the bedroom as a bed platform. Finally, an entire room was added to the space in the form of a loft study, filling part of the double volume and providing additional storage space. The dining and living rooms are compact yet functional and the whole home feels vibrant and bright.
Home guide began the interior design process by choosing a neutral and contemporary palette to accentuate the spaciousness of the home. The use of track lighting also helped create an industrial edge that complements the home’s existing red brick wall. The space followed a fully open concept, with living, dining and kitchen areas all in one. Custom display units allow for personal items to be neatly packed away, thus not disrupting the flow. This choice of design concept focuses on effortless functionality, a key element in Singapore interior design, where space is often at a premium. Smart appliances and amenities were added, from air-con to lighting and curtains, allowing for control of all systems offsite via mobile.
Puay Hee Avenue provided Home Guide a perfect blank canvas, with interesting spaces and angles to work into the concept. While the high, overall square meterage, has to be taken into consideration in the interior design for this landed clustered home, its four stories has enabled a certain flexibility to work different design styles on each floor.
Home Guide created a clean white shell by using high gloss tiles to reflect the light, which visually expanded the living space. Built-in cabinetry and appliances kept the floor space open, avoiding the blocking of flow and creating a seamless façade in the living room and kitchen. The simple yet stylish furnishing creates an impression of large open rooms is an ideal concept in Singapore interior design.
The dining room emanates a warm glow, welcoming one to sit down and enjoy a meal while admiring the exquisite view. The main wall is cladded in a full height bronze mirror which visually doubles the size of the room. The bronze also serves to reflect the light of the crystal chandelier and recessed lighting, adding a sense of intimate luxury in the dining spot.
