You’ve paid a price for your brand new home and it’s only right that you expect everything to be of quality and in good working condition before you move in!

After thorough inspection and confirming that your new home is good to go, it’s time to go wild envisioning how the bare space will eventually turn into something familiar that you call home. Here are some great interior design inspirations for new BTO flats!

1. Art lovers, here’s how to combine your love of art and the industrial to create a hipster New York studio apartment. Wash your apartment in shades of grey and touches of black for an updated modern look, and keep furnishings bare so that the art pieces can stand out.

2. A new BTO represents the birth of endless interior design possibilities, so make your greatest ideas manifest! The homeowners of this apartment went all out eclectic, and the end result is both visually stunning and extremely unique. We love the creative blend of different textures and materials that work refreshingly well together.

3. For a safe combination that always looks good, look no further than the classic pairing of white and wood tones. The end result is a softly rustic look that is charming and everlasting. Grunge it up a little with modern black elements such as snazzy pendant lights or sleek black frames on glass windows/doors.

4. This living room is full of exciting colours and textures, and sure makes staying in at home feel fun. However, we love that the bedroom tells an entirely different story with its soft, calming whiteness and chic simplicity in design.

5. Make your first home feel extra cosy by going for warm lights and clean, functional pieces. Having a big window in the living room can really help to lighten the mood and create a brighter, airier home. Install venetian blinds to help tone down the mid-day glare and also to safeguard your privacy.
