10 Open Concept Designs For Your Future Flexi HDB Flat
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 townhouse. White brick walls are a timeless and versatile element, that when paired with an open-concept design, elevates the home's style.

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.
