New Condominium Renovations in Singapore: From $19K to $85K
Big or small, it’s possible to find the right look and renovation budget for your new condo apartment!
Though they’re high-rise dwellings just like their HDB flat counterparts, many Singapore homeowners view condominiums to be more premium. And considering the myriad of private facilities that they come with, like swimming pools and gyms, plus the higher price tags which they command on the property market, it’s no wonder we think of them as the more atas property type of the two.
However, one surprising difference between the two is that new condominium apartments tend to be less pricey to renovate compared to BTO flats of a similar/same size. For instance, a new three-bedder condominium unit (approx. 92 sqm or 990 sqft) will cost you between $30,000 to $33,500 to renovate whereas a new 4-room BTO flat makeover will set you back about $43,000 to $45,000.
But putting aside all these distinctions, it’s almost always tough for a new homeowner to maximise/plan their renovation spending without first having a mental picture of what’s achievable with their budget. So, to help you out, here’s a list of 10 new condominium homes with renovation costs ranging from $19,000 to $85,000!
1. 89 sqm Condo Apartment at Rivercove Residences (Renovation Cost: $19,000)
Interior Firm: Ataz Haus Interior Design
No doubt the goal of renovating this three-bedder condo apartment at Rivercove Residences was to turn it into a simple, comfortable abode. And with a home makeover price tag of just $19,000, we’d say this is a successful renovation, both in terms of aesthetics and pocket-friendliness.
In addition to custom joinery, like the entryway’s nook/shoe cabinet as well as the study’s bay window seat, there’s also a storage platform bed that provides essential storage functionality.
2. 85 sqm Condo Apartment at Hundred Palms Residences (Renovation Cost: $22,000)
Interior Firm: Authors • Interior & Styling
Taking on a bold, earthy look thanks to a variety of mid-mod design elements like dark wood and rattan, this 85 sqm condo apartment at Hundred Palm Residences comes off as the perfect dwelling for fans of yesteryear interiors.
Meanwhile, bespoke built-ins – namely a L-shaped study table and a bedroom storage platform – bring classy elegance to their respective spaces, thanks to a combination of clean lines, subtle detailing, and all-around sleekness.
3. 102 sqm Condo Apartment at The Tapestry (Renovation Cost: $30,000)
Interior Firm: Mr Designer Studio
Renovation price tag of $30,000 aside, what’s really attractive about this 4-bedder condominium home’s makeover is its unique blend of cheery shapes and calming neutrals –a charming combination brought to life by bespoke features, such as a terrazzo-top dining table as well as an arched walkway that leads into an equally alluring bedroom.
4. 90 sqm Condo Apartment at Rivercove Residences (Renovation Cost: $35,000
Interior Firm: Ascend Design
If there are any doubts about the popularity of arches in interior design, there aren’t any now. Well… at least based on this Rivercove Residences three-bedder’s new look, which features curves in almost every corner of its 90 sqm confines.
Also, for a brighter, more open look, see-through sliding doors with glass inserts were installed throughout the house, which allows light (both natural and artificial) to pass unimpeded from one section to another.
5. 110 sqm Condo Apartment at Rivercove Residences (Renovation Cost: $40,000)
Interior Firm: Image Creative Design
Looking very much like the interior of a high-tech spacecraft from a sci-fi show, the insides of this avant-garde 110 sqm apartment at Rivercove Residences are probably best described as ‘futuristic’.
All-white surroundings aside, the most notable addition made during the makeover is probably the living room’s modular platform, which features a pop-up mahjong table as well as a concealable bay window seat. Last but not least, the cost of creating a home like this? $40,000.
6. 114 sqm Condo Apartment at Artra (Renovation Cost: $43,000)
Interior Firm: Swiss Interior Design
Warm lighting and sleek built-ins/furnishings are the keys to unlocking the swanky look of this 114 sqm, three-bedder home at The Artra – but that’s not all it has to offer in the feature department.
Go past the cosy communal areas and further into the house, and you’ll find an extra-spacious bedroom, where one half is taken up by a king-sized bed with a panoramic view of the Alexandra neighbourhood and the other, a walk-in wardrobe with all the fixtures necessary for storing a selection of clothes, accessories, personal belongings, and more.
7. 138 sqm Condo Apartment at Rivercove Residences (Renovation Cost: $50,000)
Interior Firm: Weiken.com
Even at a glance, it’s clear that creating comfort, for both its furry and human occupants, was the primary focus of this 138 sqm Rivercove Residence apartment’s makeover.
In addition to a lush, nature-inspired balcony (complete with a floor-to-ceiling cat tower), the renovation, which cost $50,000, also resulted in the creation of a posh bedroom and walk-in closet, both filled with sumptuous fabric layers that take them from ‘everyday’ to ‘extraordinary’.
8. 122 sqm Condo Apartment at Le Quest (Renovation Cost: $67,000)
Interior Firm: Forefront Interior
The main highlight of this 122 sqm Le Quest condominium apartment is its large, double-height windows, but there are other features worth highlighting too, such as its pristine, all-white interiors (which aid in bouncing natural light around the entire space) as well as its matching metal-accented furniture and lighting pieces.
Upstairs, a tranquil bedroom with restful vibes awaits, along with a wood-decked balcony that offers up a bird’s eye view of Bukit Batok.
9. 105 sqm Condo Apartment at The Tapestry (Renovation Cost: $70,000)
Interior Firm: Noble Interior Design
Created as part of a minimalist makeover that cost $70,000 in total, the communal areas and study of this 105 sqm condo apartment at The Tapestry feature clean, almost-clinical surroundings, dressed in starkly contrasting shades of black and white.
But bring in warm neutrals (specifically, grey), a floor bed, as well as soft recessed lights, and the result is a window-side bedroom with casual vibes, which feels (oddly) right even in a monochrome home that’s as austere as this one.
10. 56 sqm Condominium Apartment at The Addition (Renovation Cost: $85,000)
Interior Firm: Mr Shopper Studio
With a renovation cost of $85,000, this colour-filled condominium apartment at The Addition has the priciest makeover out all of the homes featured on this list, but at the same time, it’s also (surprisingly) the smallest one!
But despite a compact footprint of just 56 sqm, its designers still managed to create an effortlessly stylish, well-furnished interior by packing in all manner of luxe finishings, vibrant hues, and natural motifs. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at all that chic wallpaper!
