BOOKMARK

Seems like a huge investment, but the results are undeniably lavish.

Putting $100,000 into renovating your apartment seems like a lot of money, and it is! Though it’s quite a hefty investment, when you dare to dream big, even the humblest of HDB flats can be transformed.

In fact, don’t just take our word for it! From swanky marble walls that can rival those of boutique hotels to pastel setups that belong in a Wes Anderson film, check out how these homeowners spent their money to make their homes look like a million bucks.


1. Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 | Cost: $120,000

When it comes to designing a family home, and one that also has to be pet-friendly, it’s best to keep things unfussy. Though this home has a simple colour scheme, it has plenty of concealed rooms, storage solutions, and multipurpose spaces.

While it looks plenty sleek, the carpentry costs do add up, so be mindful of that when you’re renovating your own space!

2. Holland Drive | Cost: $140,000

For a Zen and minimalist approach, utilise plenty of light wood tones. Consider introducing geometric shapes (think round and curved edges) to soften the sharp, angular lines in your space. Geometric forms can be subtly introduced into your home’s look, and also work great as accent pieces. This holds up in any home regardless of your preferred design style, be it Scandinavian or contemporary.

3. Bukit Batok West Avenue 6 | Cost: $110,000

Black and white homes are nothing but classically luxurious. Rather than having ornamentation, keep your home as clean-cut and sleek as possible! Work in some stone accents to break up the monotony and to play up the lavish vibes.

Of course, it goes without saying that it’s relatively easy to update too – if you ever get bored of the neutral colour scheme, you can paint over white walls or pick out new laminates to give the house a new lease of life.

4. Matilda Edge | Cost: $100,000

Your carpentry doesn’t have to be one-note. For a less monotonous take, bring out the pastel shades. Play up the soft look with round-edged or velvet furnishings. Mix and match shapes, lines and even your tiles for contrast – when done right, it’s extremely fetching!

5. Serangoon Avenue 3 | Cost: $120,000

By opening up the entryway, and zoning it with the living room plus kitchen, this 5-room HDB flat feels even more spacious. As with every expansion, this means more room for built-ins. Keep them all flushed to the walls to maintain that open-plan feel.

As a complement, this HDB flat is decorated with pendant lights, gold furnishings and elegant fittings. Add a splash of colour with jewel tones, like royal blues to enhance the opulent air!
