Some quality inspiration for your own HDB flat in the area? We think yes.

Once a cemetery site with a large number of unclaimed graves in the early 2000s, Bidadari, now one of Singapore’s largest HDB housing estates, is anything but dead these days. And the numbers don’t lie.

As of early 2021, more than 70 per cent of BTO flats in developments like Alkaff Vista and Alkaff LakeView have been occupied, and with them have come a myriad of uniquely designed homes ranging from a smart-enabled, white-and-wood abode to a dark, cosy flat clad in shades of dusky grey.

Here, we take a closer look at eight of our favourite apartments in this (now livelier) neighbourhood that’ll hopefully inspire your own HDB flat renovation!


1. A white-and-wood Bidadari Park Drive home with a totally classy vibe

Ever a favourite, the classic combination of white surfaces and patterned wood accents works well in this Bidadari Park Drive BTO flat, bringing with it a clean, classy vibe that complements the soft, flowing curves of the false ceiling overhead.

Likewise, private spaces, such as the master en suite, embrace a similar design principle, but with veiny, grey stone walls and diamond-patterned wood panels taking the place of their living room counterparts.

Having a flat that feels different in the day and at night is like having two homes except there’s only half the cleaning and maintenance to do.

The design elements that allowed ELPIS Interior Design to create such a unique ‘two-in-one’ look for this 4-room flat at Alkaff Crescent are its neutral surfaces, namely grey walls and concrete-look decorative panels, and warm lighting, which is responsible for transforming the moody surroundings into cosy spaces at night.

There’s nothing quite like a healthy dose of colour to breathe life into a space, and out of the myriad of hues available, green is definitely the best choice to go with, especially if you’re trying to design a lively abode like this Alkaff Vista home.

By combining green accents – in the form of an emerald half-wall and soft furnishings – with natural brown hues, Mr Shopper Studio succeeded in creating a space that instantly feels welcoming and energising.

Seemingly no-frills with its neutral palette and minimal accents, this 4-room flat located in the Bidadari Park Drive development actually has a surprising amount of detail to it, with close attention paid to the inclusion of various features found in contemporary Japanese homes.

These include a tea corner with a pair of zaisu, Japanese chairs with no legs but a regular chair back, as well as an ofuro, which is a short traditional bathtub.

What makes Hui Qi and Kun Lim’s Bidadari BTO flat special is its spacious layout: Aside from hacking away part of an adjoining bedroom’s wall to expand their living area, the couple’s home also requested for an open kitchen with an extra-long island that doubles as a dining table.

Other unique features in their home include a ribbed feature wall which hides the entrance to the common bathroom as well as a variety of smart accessories, like automated curtains and lights.

6. An Alkaff Crescent HDB flat that takes inspiration from the Memphis style

While it carries some distinguishable features of Memphis-style homes, such as distinct geometric shapes and recurring patterns, this Alkaff Crescent 4-room flat is anything but over-the-top.

Instead, the designers at Fifth Avenue Interior put a more grounded spin on the usually vibrant look with mid-century modern furnishings and colonial-style accessories like 60’s retro rattan furnishings as well as monochrome blinds.

Dark neutrals, like stormy grey and off-whites, take centre stage in this Bidadari Park Drive BTO flat to create a dramatic interior that feels moody and glamourous all at once. Meanwhile, sleek surfaces like mirrored cabinet fronts and built-ins with glossy finishes bring a much-needed, though subtle, flair to the surroundings.

The same goes for the marble flooring and metallic gold accents of the kitchen and master bedroom, which play a similar role in pulling the entire look together.

Looking like a page from a Japanese interior design magazine, this Bidadari Park Drive BTO flat leans deep into the Zakka aesthetic with its natural ‘clutter’ comprised of potted plants, assorted trinkets, and drab fabrics.

The inclusion of rustic design elements, like wooden beams and creamy neutral walls, also serves to reinforce the image of a lived-in space that’s truly home.
