Wall moulding gives this home a bold design statement

Selection of the right paint colours is the simplest approach to alter the appearance of the size of your space. While dark colours can make your space appear smaller, the light colours tend to give it an illusion of space. If you want to make a tiny room feel bigger, think about using light blue, light grey, or white hues, just like this home. This classic interior design in Jurong West Central is adorned in neutral colours that give this home quite a spacious appearance.

Another interesting feature in this home’s layout is the signature wall moulding. This design element is uncommon in Singaporean homes but it makes a bold design statement. These mouldings are mostly used to hide gaps and joints to give the home a flawless appearance. These are perfect design elements to give this 3-room HDB renovation in Jurong West Central Singapore a traditional facelift. Now we know why the living room is the homeowners’ favourite space!

Approximate cost range for these design elements: $11,000 to $15,000

Most of the changes in the kitchen of this 3-room resale flat renovation in Jurong West Central are functional. However, the colour scheme of the kitchen has been kept in sync with the rest of the house. White wall tiles and shiny white laminate cabinets are used in the kitchen to reflect light and give the impression of a larger area. The designer of this house, Eleonora, used wood finishes as a countertop material to create contrast.

Changing the nightstand to storage units is a good option for growing families

A family with kids always needs storage, as much as possible. For this HDB renovation in Jurong West Central, Singapore, the couple has chosen a built-in wardrobe with wooden accents. The built-in wardrobe in the bedroom is a sliding area which occupies the least area. The wardrobe has additional wooden boxes on the top to add to the storage availability in the room. 

 The headboard is coated in a casual, light grey tone to create visual contrast and keep things airy. The ceiling is illuminated by hidden LED lights, which fill the area with a cosy, warm glow.

Approximate cost range for these design elements: $6,000 to $12,000

Using wood for shelving and storage creates good contrast to an otherwise bland bathroom

The bathrooms in this apartment are another stunning feature, with the walls covered in two distinct sets of tiles to provide intricacy and depth. The vanity area has storage cabinets adorned in white to match the rest of the white colour scheme of the room.  Another key highlight feature of this master bathroom is the use of wood for the shower equipment and storage. It adds both to the convenience and the functionality.

Approximate cost range for these design elements: $3,000 to $7,000
