You don’t always need a ton of colours to spruce up a home. As this 4-room BTO flat in Tampines GreenVerge proves, using a single laminate design for the entire house is more than capable of creating a visually-seamless home.
Don’t believe us? Just take a look at that gorgeous countryside-inspired foyer, which features a lowered ceiling that conceals a structural beam, as well as walnut laminates that result in an overall cohesive look!

To some, monochrome themes are plain and boring, but we disagree! Basing the look off one main colour is an easy way to create a harmonious, seamless look, and with a few design details — like the wainscoted walls and gold accents in this 5-room BTO — it’s enough to elevate any dark monochrome home to the next level.

BTO flat layouts are only as cookie-cutter as you make them out to be. Instead of a regular living room layout, the homeowners of this 4-room BTO flat chose to switch things up with minimal furnishings, a rounded platform, and a fluted sliding door that actually conceals a large bookcase!

Ever the classic interior design combination, white-and-wood is just one look that never fades. Peep into this bright and airy BTO flat in Tampines – how could anyone leave such a cosy, calming abode?

Speaking of white-and-wood themes, mixing a variety of complementary wood tones can work just as well as using a single type throughout the house. In this 5-room BTO in Tampines, shades of beech, oak, and walnut come together to create a home that’s not just warm and welcoming, but visually stunning as well.
6. Tampines GreenVerge | Insight.Out Studio

There’s always room for colours, even in industrial-themed homes that typically feature various shades of black and grey. In this 4-room BTO flat, deep green kitchen cabinets create a visually-arresting space that is especially striking against the home’s dark, moody interior.
The highlight of the house, though, has got to be the double swing doors leading into the master bedroom – truly an idea that’s both unique and stylish!

There’s opulent luxury, and then there’s understated luxury — which is what characterises this particular BTO flat in Tampines.
Here, sleek carpentry (like that gorgeous curved feature wall!) meets clean lines and floor-to-ceiling mirrors, with the tiniest dash of gold for that sophisticated, elegant touch.

From the abundance of sharp lines and warm lighting down to the elegant fittings, this Tampines BTO flat looks just like a suite in a posh 5-star hotel. Adding to the look is the dark walnut scheme, which further amps up the warm and cosy factor to the next level!

The good thing about contemporary design is the freedom to experiment with anything that’s trendy or popular. And in this home, you can see that take shape in the form of curved carpentry, Art Deco-inspired geometric elements, and a neutral colour palette.
10. Tampines Street 61 | SHE Interior

No, this isn’t a condo, it’s a 5-room BTO flat in Tampines! This home is the prime example of what interior designers call layering – an interior design technique that combines various elements to create character.
You can see that taking effect through the navy feature wall, fluted storage areas, and various materials – all of which gives this home its posh, condo-like look.
11. Tampines North Drive | U Home Interior Design

Yes, it’s true – dark homes really are sexy. This 3-room BTO flat in Tampines is certainly a prime example of that, where its black-and-white theme is elevated by the variety of materials used, as well as the warm white lighting!
12. Tampines GreenVerge | Attic Studio

Instead of the typical white colour scheme, consider a beige or peach hue instead – just like what you see in this cheery 4-room BTO in Tampines GreenVerge.
Unlike the typical galley-style layout, the kitchen boasts a unique angled shape, with a corner stove that adds a hint of dimension to the space.

With a big communal space that encompasses the living room, kitchen, and dining room, this 4-room BTO flat is as open-concept as they come.
In such spaces, striking a balance between cohesiveness and separation can be tough, but the clever placement of furniture and built-ins (as well as the usually-hated ceiling beam) all help to carve out clear zones between each space.

While bright colours are nice, using too much makes a house look more like a circus than a home. For visual appeal, try using such hues sparingly against a more muted backdrop – you can see how that looks in this 5-room BTO flat, where the Marigold yellow shelves and artwork are especially striking against the home’s darker interior.
15. Tampines GreenFlora | Key Concept

With the updated modern fittings in newer BTO flats, revamping every single thing isn’t necessary for a gorgeous home. Case in point: this 4-room BTO project, which retained the white walls as the base of the house’s new look.

Food and culture aren’t the only Japanese things that Singaporeans love. In fact, it has also made waves in the local interior design scene.
The proof: this 5-room BTO flat, where shoji sliding doors and andon lights add a traditional Japanese touch to its minimalist-contemporary interior.
