10 Stylish Minimalist Home Designs For Your HDB/Condo

January 5, 2015
BOOKMARK

Minimalist homes are often defined as homes that are reduced to its necessary elements and the main focus is on the function rather than form. The clean and clutter-free look is popular among homeowners who like their homes fuss- and stress-free.

Here are some homes that embody the spirit of minimalism in different ways.

Muted Monochromes

1. A black and white theme keeps the apartment chic and stylish. Even furniture and accessories largely keep to the colour scheme, maintaining a clean, consistent look.

Wide Open Spaces
