BOOKMARK

Imagine not having to scrimp and save on every material, cabinet, and feature for a renovation – how would your home look like if you had your way? The owners of these HDB flats and condominium apartments chose to invest in creating their dream home, and prove that sometimes, money talks. Get ready to be wowed by these homes that have enjoyed a six-figure renovation.

HDBs

1. After a slick renovation, this four-room resale maisonette could easily pass off as a swanky loft. With the living room’s glossy stone floors, tasteful art pieces, all-black kitchen, and marble-clad bathroom, this home illustrates how costly materials can indeed make a home look real posh.

2. This 137 sqm resale HDB maisonette went through a 360-degree overhaul with a change of flooring, tiling, plumbing, electrical re-wiring, and completely new aesthetic features in almost every corner.

3. Absolutely nothing in this four-room flat is conventional. Every corner is a surprise that’s packed with a lively jumble colours, materials, and styles. The industrial style is manifested through elements such as the corrugated steel feature wall and the dungeon-inspired walk-in wardrobe doors. These are contrasted with the vividly-coloured accessories, which are a fun nod to the pop art style.

Condominiums

4. Designed around Chinese antiques, this flat’s open-plan common area is an exquisite example of how traditional aesthetics can be modernized with a refined touch. By keeping big-ticket items such as the sofa, dining set, and kitchen to contemporary designs, the secondary antique pieces are able to complement the home effortlessly.

5. Industrial, country, and vintage styles have played a part in inspiring the owners of this apartment, and the result is an eclectic yet stylish home. Aesthetics are pretty much on point in every room, including the often just functionality-driven kitchen. Here, with its striking colours and unexpected mix of styles, the cooking space is as practical as it is Instagram-worthy!

5. Luxury can be expressed in many ways at home, and emphasising sprawling spaces with a clean design is one of them. With space such a scarcity in local homes, this 300sqm condominium unit’s sense of spaciousness is further heightened by its uncluttered and unfussy design. The choice of natural materials and earth-toned colour palette keep it looking classy and timeless as well.

6. Monochrome is the order of the day here in this urban-style home, which keeps to a black, white and grey colour scheme throughout all the rooms.
