9 HDB Bathroom Makeovers For Every Budget
Many homeowners make the mistake of scrimping on the bathroom when it comes to renovation. But the bathroom isn't called "the most-visited" room for nothing. So even though it may be the smallest - and probably the most insignificant room in the house, make it a splash. Haven't you heard: the bathroom is often the room that makes or break the deal when you put your home on sale, according to property agents. So yes - you've got to make that impression.
1. Give It Character
Like the rest of your house, your bathroom should have a theme and personality as well. Pick one that goes with your entire designer concept and make sure the details flow through. For example, if you are going with a minimalist touch, the bathroom should get the same treatment with clean tiles and understated lighting.

2. Add A Designer’s Touch
Pop art on the walls or funky tiles are sure to liven things up. Andy Warhol in the bathroom? Why not. Don’t just reserve designer touches for the communal areas – your bathroom deserves an artistic touch too, to make it stand out on its own.

3. Flaunt Its Flaws
Can't stand those exposed pipes in your old HDB bathroom? Make it part of the picture. “Imperfections”, like exposed pipes and bricks, add character interior-wise, making your bathroom one-of-a-kind. So instead of trying to hide it, make it beautiful.

4. Don’t Forget The Small Details
Sometimes, it in the details that make all the difference. Like this small bathroom that packs a punch when it comes to that stunning factor. Sleek bathroom finishing adds a designer feel while raw wood finishing gives it a modern industrial effect.

5. Give It A Focal Point
A bathroom doesn’t have to be plain and boring. Jazz it up and pick a central focus that instantly catches your eye the minute you enter. You can try create a feature wall. Pick the prettiest tile in the shop and use it as part of the feature wall. Or mix and match for a unique look that’s all yours.

6. Give it the Wow Factor
Forget about making it simple and down-to-earth. There's a reason why we all love the bathrooms in the hotel room - it's luxe. So put up a chandelier, marble walls and grand finishing to give your very own a regal effect.

7. Build A Nice Vanity Closet
Good carpentry goes a long way when it comes to your home – even in the bathroom. To keep clutter out (and make your bathroom stay sleek and clean), include a nice vanity closet that goes with the entire look and feel.

8. Add Romance In The Air
With cove lights and elegant wood surfaces, anything can turn into hotel-like luxury. Do the same for your bathroom to give it that five-star treatment. Opt for classy finishing like a bowl sink and mood lighting that gives it an overall intimate feel.
