Space in Singapore is mostly tight, so interior designers here have all the experience when it comes to making the best use out of small spaces. In fact, well-designed tiny homes and compact living seem to be on the radar these days – just like these 8 beautiful compact homes we’ve spotted right here in Singapore.
1. A definite eye-catcher in this home is its cute, semi-booth style dining area – a creative way of being space efficient! Incorporate mirrors to have that larger-than-life effect and make sure to include plenty of storage space to keep your clutter out of sight. We also love the use of wood in this home – it’s got that Scandinavian modern effect that are perfect for opening up tiny homes.

2. With a cool industrial look, this homeowner incorporated the use of raw materials like exposed bricks and upscaled furniture – right on trend. The unifying colour palette of warm tones gives the small condo a cosy and relaxed ambience. A must-have for compact homes, hidden storage should be incorporated into any home.

3. Tiny, but bursting with grandiose in its modern approach to interior design. Even with a small budget, you can make your tiny abode luxe and sophisticated with all the right colours, textures and materials. Hints of gold and sheen create an “expensive” look while patterned wallpapers and a chandelier instantly upgrade your home.

4. Dark colours give a bold impact and a sense of masculinity. Using glass panels to separate the living room from the bedroom is a smart alternative to cement walls and doors as it still maintains a flow instead of cordoning off sections in your already smaller than average home.

5. Again, glass instead of cement. This interior idea is getting more and more popular. With a minimalist and modern interior using raw materials, plants play the perfect décor, creating an understated appeal. Absolutely love the pistachio mint kitchen cabinets – now that is something we don’t see often which we would like to have more of!

6. Another Scandinavian home that's on point when it comes to making the best use of tiny spaces. Keep it simple with just the bare necessities but add a little quirk with a geometric carpet and fun art. The white throughout – especially in the bathroom – gives a clean and pristine look, which is ideal so while tiny, it's not gloomy.

7. One thing about small homes is the many corners and nooks that are hard to incorporate in the entire design concept. Pre-planning is key in ensuring space is smartly utilised. For example, the bedroom here - placing the bed in a corner allows for a bigger wardrobe. (Don't we all need one?)

8. Mirrors, mirrors – exceptionally handy when your space is tiny! Floor-to-ceiling mirrors are great optical illusions that make a room appear larger than it really is. Folding glass doors that separate rooms allow you to create privacy if you need it when closed or further expands the space when opened wide. Also loving the frosted windows in the bedroom that play in to the optical illusion.
