5-Room BTO Flat Renovations in Singapore: From $25K to $130K
A closer look at 5-room HDB flat renovations in Singapore – from most affordable to most pricey!
It might not be as fun as letting your imagination run wild with design ideas but budgeting for a renovation is just as important as having a firm vision of what your future home will look like. Maybe even more important, actually.
If you’re renovating a 5-room HDB flat, you could be spending as much as $130,000. Yes, you read that right: that’s how high the cost of making over a 5-room flat can be.
But as with making over a 3-room HDB flat or a 4-room BTO flat, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to fork out more than the typical cost of renovating a new 5-room HDB flat, which is $45,000 to $52,000.
Here, we share 10 examples of 5-room HDB flats with different renovation costs and ideas so that you can find the best look at the right price!
1. 5-Room BTO Flat at Anchorvale Lane (Renovation Cost: $25,000)
Interior Firm: Starry Homestead
While it isn’t a splendid home decked out in all manner of premium materials, this 5-room BTO flat at Anchorvale Lane does have a renovation price tag of just $25,000 which is pretty impressive, considering that the typical cost of renovating a (much smaller) 3-room BTO flat ranges from $38,850 to $44,000.
Throughout the flat, a blue-and-white palette brings a feeling of serenity to every room while serving as a soft backdrop for bespoke built-ins dressed in contrasting wood tones. Perfect for a calming home? We think so.
2. 5-Room HDB Flat at Pasir Ris (Renovation Cost: $28,000)
Interior Firm: ELPIS Interior Design
Although it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, adopting the monochrome look like the owners of this Pasir Ris 5-room BTO flat did is one way to make it stylish. Here, white walls become empty canvases that can be filled up with all manner of dark colours, textures, and shapes to create a more characterful home.
However, if you’d like a brighter aesthetic for your personal spaces, there’s no one stopping you from switching things up. Dress up your master bedroom with off-whites and accessorise it with blonde wood furnishings for equally clean but more soothing surroundings.
3. 5-Room BTO Flat at Woodlands (Renovation Cost: $30,000)
Interior Firm: Great Oasis Interior Design
Costing $30,000 to renovate, this pastel-hued 5-room HDB flat in Woodlands now has energetic, light-filled spaces after a makeover lasting 8 weeks.
Soft furnishings, such as bright pink poufs and a fringed throw, join well-placed colour accents in the living room to give it a comforting vibe. The same goes for the open-concept kitchen, which has its own set of cutesy fixtures: a trio of pendant lamps strung over a country-style island/breakfast counter.
4. 5-Room HDB Flat at Bukit Batok West (Renovation Cost: $36,000)
Interior Firm: ChengYi Interior Design
This 5-room HDB flat at Bukit Batok cost $36,000 to renovate and it’s proof that a budget-friendly home makeover can work beautifully.
Fans of minimalist and Scandinanvian-style will certainly appreciate the abundance of clean-lined furnishings as well as sleek built-ins, including a curved wraparound structure that conceals the household shelter.
For a conducive working environment, one of the bedrooms was also converted into a study/walk-in wardrobe with a minimalist aesthetic that’s similar to the living room’s own. Take notes from it, especially if a stunningly sleek private space is what you’re looking for.
5. 5-Room BTO Flat in Sengkang (Renovation Cost: $45,000)
Interior Firm: Metier Planner
As this 5-room BTO flat in Sengkang with a renovation price tag of $45,000 shows, sometimes the best way to create a cosy haven is to simply fill it with wood tones.
The abundance of natural browns makes for inviting spaces that are both pleasant and stylish. Take for example the living room and kitchen, which respectively feature herringbone floor and panelled drawers that bring life and texture to naturally lit surroundings.
6. 5-Room HDB Flat at Canberra Street (Renovation Cost: $49,000)
Interior Firm: Third Paragraph
Like the #2 entry on this list, this 5-room HDB flat at Canberra Street features a monochrome look, but that’s where the similarities end. Aside from a higher renovation cost of $49,000, this dramatic home also proves that black and white alone are enough to create a stylish abode – even if it’s one that feels a little stark.
To balance out the harshness, see-through partitions with tall glass panels were installed in the yard as well as common bathroom, allowing natural light to pass through unhindered between spaces and creating seamless environments with a sense of continuity.
7. 5-Room HDB Flat in Tampines (Renovation Cost: $55,000)
Interior Firm: Versaform
Although it features a contemporary look with modern-day furnishings, there’s an organic quality present in this 5-room HDB flat in Tampines, owing to its choice accents as well as earthy materials.
In the communal area, a well-placed planter joins a live-edge dining table in bringing the outside indoors, whereas the private areas of the apartment showcase a walk-in-closet-cum-study separated from an adjoining bedroom by the perfect rustic statement feature: a sliding barn door with a classic double Z design.
8. 5-Room HDB Flat at Tampines North Drive (Renovation Cost: $55,000)
Interior Firm: Jialux Interior
There’s one thing to be said about this 5-room HDB flat at Tampines North Drive, which cost $55,000 to renovate: it’s a home that’s not afraid to be different.
While it’s indeed posh – no thanks to veiny black marble flooring and sleek built-ins – this apartment is also fun. Pockets of space in various parts of the home are dedicated to displaying quirky collectibles, including the study as well as the entryway, which features a subtly playful diamond-shaped glass enclosure and matching recessed lights.
9. 5-Room HDB Flat at Tampines GreenWeave (Renovation Cost: $98,000)
Interior Firm: Mr Shopper Studio
Sporting a renovation price tag of $98,000, this Tampines GreenWeave 5-room flat is as luxurious as it gets. Aside from a posh living room with an accompanying private study, there’s also a stylish kitchen that nails the monochrome theme perfectly with white marble-look countertops and cabinets clad in black.
However, the most impressive area in this flat is without a doubt its master bedroom. Directly connected to a roomy walk-in wardrobe next door, it’s here where you’ll find fine finishes, bespoke storage solutions, and a sophisticated space that’s on par with a swanky suite in a five-star hotel.
10. 5-Room BTO Flat at Tampines North Drive (Renovation Cost: $130,000)
Interior Firm: ARK-hitecture
Even at a glance, it’s clear why this 5-room BTO flat at Tampines North Drive cost $130,000 to create. Go past the impressive entryway that’s flanked by full-height mirrors on both sides and you’ll be met by an elegant living room with a flowing curved ceiling and walls clad in slabs of veiny stone.
Further into the house, there’s also a spacious bedroom with a custom double-sided closet; a home highlight in its own right, this bespoke fixture features a TV wall with inlaid metallic accents on one side, and on the other, a series of wardrobes, open shelves as well as a nifty dressing table. Talk about having the best of both worlds!
