With configurations that feature a household shelter along the hallway, you may think that design ideas are limited. However, we’re here to prove you wrong with these 6 homes, which not only have a similar layout to your Northshore BTO flat, but also a ton of renovation/layout ideas to inspire you!


Layout ideas for a 3-room BTO flat in Northshore Cove

Like many 3-room BTO flats these days, this particular one in Northshore Cove averages at around 65 sqm in size.

While this leaves very little room to play around with the space, there are still ways you can exercise your creativity, as shown below:

a) Merge your living room and junior bedroom to expand your living space

If you’re living alone or with your partner, you may not necessarily need that extra junior bedroom. So, why not merge it together with the living room? Like this 3-room BTO flat in Sims Place, you’ll have an expanded living space that will a) create space for a proper dining room, and b) make your house look bigger than it really is!

b) Reconfigure the layout to create additional storage space

Rather than letting the space define the layout, the designers from Happe Design Atelier made the space work for the homeowner, using clever space planning solutions to fit in a study, walk-in wardrobe, and even a bathtub into this 3-room BTO flat in Edgefield Plains!

One example of their out-of-the-box solutions was to turn the hallway into a walk-in wardrobe – which is proof that you don’t need to sacrifice an entire room to create one! Doing this also avoids cluttering the bedroom, and frees up the junior bedroom to be used as a study.

Additionally, the decision to convert both bathrooms into a wet and dry bathroom also freed up space for the bathtub without cramping the space!

Layout ideas for a 4-room BTO flat in Northshore Cove

The 4-room BTO flats in Northshore Cove also have a household shelter located in the hallway – but unlike their 3-room counterparts, some of these flats come with a balcony for additional (albeit small) outdoor space.

Here are some things you can do with this layout:

a) Extend your kitchen counters around the household shelter

While a fully open-concept kitchen may be out of the picture, that doesn’t mean your only option is the standard galley-style/one-wall layout.

This 4-room resale flat in Chai Chee, for example, features extended counters that wrap around the household shelter, resulting in an open kitchen with a unique, retro twist. Not only does this help the kitchen integrate smoothly into the main communal area, but also encourages seamless visual flow between each space.

b) Conceal your hallway (and household shelter) with a false wall

Nobody wants their nosy friends or relatives poking around their bedrooms, so here’s a simple solution: put up a ‘second wall’ to separate them from the communal area.

In this Japanese-inspired 4-room resale flat in Pasir Ris, the fluted panelled wall cleanly divides the communal space from the bedrooms, with a concealed door providing a way in, and hides the household shelter.

Layout ideas for a 5-room BTO flat in Northshore Cove

Boasting an average size of 113 sqm, these 5-room flats in Northshore Cove are as big as new BTO flats get. With its extended living room space, you’ll have much more space to experiment with, which you can take full advantage of using these ideas:

a) Create a wet and dry kitchen

Having additional space means getting to do more things with it – like creating a wet and dry kitchen, as shown in this 5-room resale flat in Punggol.

With designated areas for the heavy cooking and food preparation, you’ll be much more organised while handling the different tasks in the kitchen – great for bakers and heavy cookers alike.

And if you somehow still lack working space, feel free to install a kitchen counter – which, if placed right, can also act as a physical divider between the two areas!

b) Create an extra room out of the suggested study area

Newer 5-room flats have got one thing that others don’t, and that’s the much-coveted suggested study area. While many homeowners leave it as it is, there’s sufficient space for you to carve out an entirely new room.

For example, if you’ve been doing your work in the bedroom, take this opportunity to convert this extra space into a study – like how it’s done in this 5-room BTO flat in Tampines. After all, you’ll never know when another – touch wood – lockdown hits!
