Take Your Resale HDB Bathroom From 0 to 100 With These Ideas

June 25, 2019
BOOKMARK

Your new bathroom will be the bomb.

In terms of restoration, style and ease of renovation, resale units don’t have the best rep in the market. And yet, the bathrooms of these apartments have so much potential!

Forget the old shower-and-sink feature and start planning to make your dream bathroom a reality. Start with these 8 see-it-to-believe-it ideas.

1. Get a bathtub... and a shower

Can’t decide on whether you want a bathtub or a shower? Why not both! Take cues from this minimalist bathroom where the homeowner has incorporated the bathtub on one side and shower on the other – because you know, some days you feel like a soak and others you just need to jump in and go. Make the bathroom look less cluttered by keeping it to bare essentials and flush your storage areas to the side!

2. Mix-and-match your tiles!

Old bathrooms may need sprucing up, style-wise. Aside from using a unique mashup of tiles, the homeowner went with glass partitions for practicality (no huge water puddles!) as well as a sleek finish to amp up that contemporary feel.

3. Split your wet and dry areas

No space in the bathroom? No worries – make like this homeowner and build your sink outside the bathroom. That way, guests can use the sink anytime even when you’re taking a relaxing shower!

4. Complete your shower with an accent wall

You don’t have to save the accent wall feature just for the living room. Incorporate it in your bathroom to take it to new heights! We recommend going for a monochrome look (as seen here!) with black and white subway tiles. It’s retro yet super sleek.

5. You can even accent your floor!

Another way to use the accent wall feature? Apply it on your floors for visual contrast! If you want to be extra safe, ask for non-slip graphic tiles.

6. Not enough space? Open up your bathroom

For something that’s a little more Zen opt for an open-concept look. This chic-minimalist bathroom goes sans partition to create more room. Complement with the right tile treatment for a simple yet stylish finish.

7. Go glam with a retro look

Besides the subway tiles, the bathroom employs a variety of brass fittings and accessories, giving it a yesteryear feel. The space was then complemented with decorative items and a sliding door to separates the wet and dry areas of the bathroom.

8. Make it more spacious with a half-wall

Love the idea of an open-concept bathroom but with a little bit more privacy? Use a half-wall feature to create that private space without closing it all up.
