We Designed This Modern Living Room Space With Vivid Colours 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 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 accent wall. This 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 TV unit with two drawers for storage. There is a small storage unit placed next to the TV unit as well. 

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

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 and the homeowners made the decision to bring in the vibrant pink colour in the master bedroom as well, just like the living room.  It is designed with built-in seamless sliding wardrobe for storage. The room also features a simple nightstand, and a big window to let both natural light and air flow in seamlessly.

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 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 are 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 a number of spatial limitations. The size of the house is considerably small to incorporate the design elements into it. Moreover, the homeowner didn’t want us to make drastic changes to the space. So, Livspace considered his request and worked majorly on the kitchen space, built-in wardrobe and paints.
