This week, we tour the home of Charmian and Jay, a 5-room HDB flat in Hougang that spans over 1,260 square feet. This beautiful space has been renovated at a cost of $120,000 (which includes all the appliances).
As you enter their home, you will be greeted by a cozy settee that you can use to put on or take off your shoes. However, what catches your attention right away are the 2 striking blue marble slabs and the wallpaper on the ceiling. The space is designed with darker colors, which creates a warm and cosy atmosphere.
For the kitchen, they cut down the space by half since they felt they wouldn’t use it much because of their working lifestyle. They also installed a kitchen peninsula for extended conversations by the kitchen.
As for the living space, they have pushed the bedrooms back to make the living room bigger. Since the ceiling was lower, they installed curved false ceilings to make it look less prominent....
