A Modern Living Room With a Vivid Colour and Minimal Furniture

Simple living room design with minimal IKEA furniture
Dining room sharing space with living room makes for a good idea for compact homes

The living area in this simple 2-room flat HDB interior design in Bedok North, Singapore is well-lit, thanks to the full-length window. The walls of the living room are neutrally coloured except this one pink TV wall design. This accent wall colour has all our heart, and it elevates the design quotient of this room single-handedly.

The room has minimal furniture, that is a two-seater sofa and a bench from IKEA in shades of brown and grey. The TV is placed on a simple wooden table with two drawers for storage. There is a small storage unit with glass enclosure, placed next to the TV unit. This unit safely stores the traditional show pieces of value to the Daphne.

The dining room in this HDB flat design in Bedok North shares the same space as the living room. The dining area has a small wooden dining table for two, which is a completely practical choice for a small family. The accent wall has a few paintings and a wall-hanger.

A Parallel Kitchen to Use Maximum Space in This 2-Room HDB Design

A parallel kitchen provides optimum functional space for compact homes
Dark brown wooden cabinets create good contrast against neutral walls

This 2-room flexi renovation in Bedok North takes full advantage of a parallel-shaped kitchen to make the maximum use of the available space. It allows the homeowner, Daphne, to have separate areas for washing, preparing food, and cooking.

The burner and oven are situated nearby for convenience. The kitchen has maximum storage thanks to both upper and lower cabinets. The wooden cabinets are dark brown with black handles, keeping the look simple yet stylish at the same time. 

Quartz countertops are stain-free and durable

For the backsplash, Ricky settled on clean, white ceramic tiles. He then finished the look with brown quartz countertops that maintains the kitchen’s sleek aesthetic.

A Compact Bedroom With Sufficient Practical Storage and Natural Light

Simplicity with no clutter for this 2-room flexi BTO interior design in Bedok North
Seamless sliding wardrobes take very less space in compact bedrooms

The most practical and comfortable area of the 2-room HDB design in Bedok North is the master bedroom. Ricky, our designer, and Daphne, the homeowner, decided to bring in the vibrant pink colour in the master bedroom as well, to unite the design of this 2-room HDB flat. 

It is designed with seamless sliding wardrobe for storage. The room also features a simple nightstand, and a big window to let both natural light and air inside.

What Is a 2-Room Flexi Flat?

If you know about the 2-room flexi scheme for the elderly, you know that HDB allows the elderly to purchase two-room apartments with a shorter lease. They were formerly known as Studio Apartments for the elderly. They consist of one bedroom, one living room with a dining area, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a bomb shelter. Although it may sound like the ideal bachelor or bachelorette pad, the elderly is the main target demographic for these flats.

However, if we talk from the interior design perspective, this 2-room HDB design in Bedok North came with several spatial limitations. The size of the house is considerably small to incorporate the design elements into it. Moreover, Daphne, the homeowner, didn’t want us to make drastic changes to the space. So, Livspace considered her request and worked majorly on the kitchen space, sliding wardrobe and wall paint.
