Open concept homes are gaining traction/popularity all over the world, and it’s hard to see why not. With small office cubicles and ever shrinking apartment sizes, the feeling when you return home to a spacious area is too often oddly liberating, if not empowering. Plus, with HDB's new flexi flat scheme, the possibilities are endless! Check out these 10 amazing open-concept designs for your own future flexi flat.

1. This 1-bedroom apartment has been transformed into the likes of a contemporary art loft with simple and clean lines. Large wooden panels are used to separate the bedroom from the living room – which helps to add a layer of privacy when needed. Cozy yet functional, the space flows seamlessly from the kitchen to living area and bedroom.

2. The uber-white palette and minimalistic chic vibe here adds a touch of grandeur to this walk-up apartment. Here you’ll find the living area, dining area, kitchen, and study within the same open-concept space, with everything neatly arranged to create those clean, visually-appealing lines.

3. Tucked in the heart of Marine Crescent, this quirky, eclectic space is a perfect harmony of vintage and modern design. The 3-bedroom apartment exudes a certain draw and appeal with a delicate balance of colorful tiles from 1960 and industrial, minimalistic tones from today. Glass panels amplify the space of the living room, yet still maintaining the integrity of the different rooms. Natural light streams in from the many windows, making the space look bright, cheerful and airy.

4. Pairing muted tones with natural elements, this open-concept BTO imbues sense of calm from the moment you step in. Of note are the pivot glass panels used to demarcate the living and study areas, lending flexibility to the space such that the latter can be closed off as needed.

5. Here, greyish wood flooring complements the concrete walls for a cozy yet spacious setting perfect for a family to live in. Pops of colour break up the grey monotony and shine the spotlight on a collection of figurines and curios littered about.

8. Small spaces don't have to feel cramped, and this 47 sqm resale flat is proof of that. Wooden hues help to bring out a sense of warmth and coziness, and the whole house merges together in one huge area – benefits are aplenty, from hosting to closer interactions.

9. Floor-to-ceiling mirrors, wooden panels and cleverly-spaced partitions help this sleek and spacious abode create a "flow" at home. Clean lines and wooden furniture enhance its contemporary open-concept design, while the mirrored panels (that open up to more rooms!) help to amplify the space here.

10. Taking a step away from the highly structured living spaces of the past, this open floor plan design creates a spacious, informal interior that helps connect common areas. A foldable glass partition helps to keep the fumes in when heavy cooking is being done, while combining spaces for a visually larger space at all other times.
