Minimalist BTO Flat Looks More Like A 5-Star Hotel
For many of us, our BTO flats are our very first property purchase. Being affordable, they have a negative reputation of looking plain, bare, and pretty much basic.
But on Tuesday (5 Mar), 13th Design Studio, a Singapore-based interior design company uploaded pictures of a 4-room BTO flat they recently helped renovate.
Let’s just say that the pictures look stunning. The Facebook album containing the pictures has since gone viral, with over 10,000 shares at the time of writing.
So if you have atas condo friends who think HDB BTO flats are inferior-looking, here’s something we recommend showing them.
Not your typical HDB flat entrance
Right off the bat, the entrance to the apartment looks posh AF with its simplistic yet refined design.
Fonts used for the unit number are also carefully chosen and exude an elegant vibe, a drastic contrast to the tacky fonts typically used.
The door opens using a fingerprint sensor and leads straight to the dining room.
Dining room worthy of a Michelin star
The dining area boasts a chic design, using black and brown as its main colours and light touches of gold to add an atas finish to the dining quarters.
But things truly come to life at night when the lights are switched on.
With the soft and warm glow from the lights, having a meal here is comparable to dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
With such a romantic dining area in their house, the owners probably have absolutely no need to head out for their candlelit dinner.
A living room fit for even Harvey Specter
Adjacent to the dining quarters is the living room, which as you’d expect, is pretty gorgeous too.
The highlight of the living room is without doubt the rustic brown leather sofa, which compliments the black background perfectly.
With such an appealing living quarter, the lucky owners of this BTO flat will surely be looking forward to unwinding with Netflix on the TV every single day.
There’s even a shelf on the side for displaying alcohol collection, which even Harvey Spector would feel proud of.
Stylish guest room to impress friends
The exquisite designs don’t just stop in the common areas — the bedrooms are equally stylish too!
Let’s start off with the guest room, which comes with an elevated platform on which the guest bed can be found.
Doing without the bed frame not only helps to save space but also gives the room a neater look.
The owners have also included a glass cabinet in their guest room to show off their figurine collection.
Not sure about you, but we’d choose to stay in this guest room over our own rooms any day of the year.
Simplistic yet practical master bedroom
With such a beautifully designed guest room, you can already imagine how epic the bedroom is going to look. And safe to say, we aren’t disappointed.
The master bedroom has a dark wallpaper which pairs well with the wooden bedrest, giving the room a 5-star hotel look.
There’s also a massive wardrobe in the bedroom to store all the owners’ clothes, so they need not worry about Marie Kondo-ing away apparel that don’t spark joy.
The master bedroom is also partitioned to allow a study, so the owners can hop right into bed after they’re done with work.
Bathrooms that resemble a beach resort
Some people believe that the restroom’s design is what makes or breaks an apartment’s aesthetics.
Well, these people surely wouldn’t be disappointed with this the master bathroom’s beach resort-esque design.
Not sure about you, but if our toilets looked like this, we’d gladly double the number of times we shower just to spend more time in
beach resort restrooms.
The common bathroom is also similarly themed. In particular, we love how the shower, basin, and towels are deliberately coloured black to fit the overall design of the apartment.
