It’s one thing to have an aesthetically-pleasing interior. It’s another to have one that’s also homey and timeless – all while keeping renovation costs under $30,000. But that’s exactly what the owners of this 4-room BTO at Ang Mo Kio managed to achieve with Swiss Interior Design, and it’s no wonder it takes the #1 spot on this list!
2. A MASSIVE 165 sqm executive apartment | 4,401 likes

Extremely spacious and increasingly rare on the resale market, executive apartments are a highly sought-after type of property in Singapore. Add a recessed area and a sleek entryway lined with full-length glass windows to the mix, and it’s easy to see the appeal of this monochrome-themed executive apartment in Marsiling.

Home visitorship may still be capped at 5 pax per day, but this 5-room (improved) resale HDB flat in Pasir Ris is certainly ready for the day restrictions are lifted. By extending its living/dining area into the balcony and converting the study into a full-fledged dining room, this 140 sqm flat now has even more space to entertain guests.
4. A 4-room BTO that takes a trip down memory lane | 4,237 likes

From its generous use of wood textures to funky pops of colour all around, this retro style 4-room BTO at Tampines North pays homage to eras gone by. Plus, it now looks more spacious than it actually is, after hacking away walls for an open-concept kitchen and a study demarcated by a half-wall partition with indoor windows.
5. A cosy 4-room BTO you can spend all day in | 3,899 likes
View this project by Noble Interior Design
If you ever thought minimalist homes were cold and uninviting, think again. With plenty of white, grey and light wood tones all already, this 4-room BTO in Bidadari is an absolute picture of calm – and just the kind of home you’d want to snuggle up in all day.
6. An executive apartment that feels even larger post-revamp | 3,854 likes
View this project by Aart Boxx Interior
Following its makeover, this open-plan executive apartment at Bukit Merah now has a roomier entryway, a larger kitchen, open-concept spaces and more. As a cherry on top, we’re absolutely obsessed with how well the entryway’s retro tiles match its otherwise contemporary interior.
7. A 5-room resale HDB with lots to love | 3,666 likes
View this project by Carpenters 匠
Honestly, we had a hard time deciding what we love most about this 5-room resale flat in Choa Chu Kang: its bright and airy communal spaces, hotel-like master bedroom, or gorgeous marble kitchen island. We’ll leave you to check it out and decide for yourself!
8. A soothing Scandinavian style 4-room BTO | 3,544 likes
View this project by Fifth Avenue Interior
Arches have been trending for a while now, but this 4-room BTO along Northshore Drive takes it to a whole new level. Comprising a white palette, wood accents and furnishings with tapered legs, it epitomises Scandinavian interior design – but with a twist: it’s got dark green kitchen cabinets for contrast.
9. A 7-year-old HDB flat turned cool industrial haven | 3,420 likes
View this project by The Interior Lab
The owners may have purchased it because of its spacious layout, but this 5-room resale HDB flat’s industrial-themed transformation is what truly makes it stand out. It now has a study with steel-framed indoor windows, an open-concept kitchen and, most importantly, is a space its owners love.
10. A 4-room BTO with mid-century modern charm | 3,344 likes
View this project by Fifth Avenue Interior
From rattan accents right down to its choice of tiles and blinders, this 4-room BTO in Bidadari draws inspiration from colonial interior design in the mid-1900s and oozes nostalgia at every turn. That said, its breakfast counter with bar chairs definitely has our hearts.
11. A maisonette that’s every minimalist’s dream come true | 3,277 likes
View this project by Toke & Chen
Following an extreme makeover, this 80’s maisonette now has a sleek minimalist interior that’s anything but cold. By having two distinct vibes – an all-white look on the lower level, with warm lighting and wood accents on the upper floor – it strikes the right balance of “clean and cosy”.
12. A quaint 5-room BTO with peach-coloured walls and… ceiling? | 3,273 likes
View this project by Forefront Interior
Sure, it’s cool to paint your walls in a different colour, but have you ever thought of painting your ceiling too? This 5-room BTO in Clementi cleverly demarcates its window-side breakfast counter by doing just that – talk about breakfast with a view!
