As any Singaporean would know, it’s important to carry out house renovations for both condo and HDB residences. However, these home renovations can bring about a number of obstacles based on your wants and desires. 

At Livspace, we don’t just build brand new houses; we also renovate rooms to make them suitably acceptable for today’s homeowner. We’ll walk you through five of our favourite house makeovers in this story.

1. A 98 sqm Condo Filled with Stunning Details

The living room for this house is now a perfect setting for family get-togethers

Who livs here: A couple

Location: 35 Robin Road

Type and size of home: 2-room condo spanning 98 sq. m.

Livspace team: Interior designer and project manager Ava Gui

Livspace service: Full house renovation

Budget: $$$$$

For the couple’s appreciation of the old and new, our interior designers combined mid-century modern furniture with contemporary design in this home renovation. This resulted in a unified and warm style. Living room is the focal point of this home. The walls of the condo’s third bedroom were hacked down to create this open and wide living room. The couple who lives here like spending time in their living area, listening to music and taking in the beautiful scenery. The massive floor-to-ceiling glass windows attest to this, allowing plenty of natural light in. 

The 1940s Josef Frank colourful cushion covers and the Le Courbusier LC10-P low centre table from the 1930s are examples of a modern perspective on practicality. The kitchen renovation features magnificent marble flooring that matches the rest of the house and is well offset by the sleek dark-grey cabinets. This home’s design concept is further enhanced with the addition of vintage rugs and mid-century ceiling lighting.

2. Kitchen Renovation: From A Dull Space to a Positive Haven

A modern and sleek kitchen with oodles of storage

Who livs here: A young couple 

Location: 244 Bukit Batok East Avenue 5 #06-22

Size of home: 93 sqm 3-room HDB

Design team: Interior Designer Stephanie Ng and Business Manager Eddie Chua 

Livspace service: Whole kitchen overhaul, painting, vinyl floor works

Budget: $$

This Livspace kitchen renovation has it all: flexible storage, simple upkeep, and effective workflow solutions. The kitchen in this 3-room HDB was approximately 38 years old, and it required some work to give it a suitable structural facelift. The original false ceiling was removed, and softer colour palettes were applied to keep the design basic. 

This three-room HDB kitchen provides plenty of storage. There are plenty of shelves and stands to hold containers, utensils, and other kitchen accoutrements. To get the wood-effect, the kitchen countertop was made of KompacPlus. They also included a few potted plants in the kitchen to keep up the forest vibe.  

3. A Vibrant and Snug 31 sqm Condo with a Clean Design

A modern and minimal living room with a sense of understated luxury

Location: 529 Bedok Reservoir Road

Type of home: 2-room resale condo

Livspace team: Interior Designer Wanting Liu and Project Manager Zach Lee

Livspace service: Flooring, painting and decorating

Budget: $$$$$

In this home renovation, warm wood tones go across the entire space. This home has an old world elegance about it yet remains practical. The homeowners wanted to make use of the loose furniture and wanted to keep their home look tidy. As a result, our interior designer, Wanting Liu, assisted them with the decor, flooring, and painting.

Check out the living room of this home! This living area is basic and elegant, with a backdrop of neutral tones. The vinyl timber flooring complements the beige sofa and wooden TV set perfectly. The little coffee table is indistinguishable from the rest of the room’s decor. The light fixture on the ceiling fan and the faux ceiling cove lights brighten it the living room up. Glass paintings of plants on the wall bring the area to life.

4. This Old HDB Flat Went From Boring to Fabulous With Modern Interiors

Bringing a gallery-style kitchen into the digital age!

Who livs here: Krish Iyer

Location: 772 Bedok Reservoir View

Type of home: 5-room HDB

Livspace team: Interior designer Ava Gui and project manager Kent Huang

Livspace service: Design, demolition, masonry, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, ceiling and partition work, painting

Budget: $$$$$

This 5-room HDB home renovation will win your heart without a doubt. Krish desired a home that was both comfortable and inviting, or, as he put it to the designer, “a place I want to live in.” The entrance to an open-plan home features a neutral-colored foyer with a white shoe cabinet. The living room features a brick accent wall that provides some intriguing character to the area, as well as recliners, a sound system with amplifiers, and a TV console, all of which are designed with comfort and convenience in mind. 

From the living room to the dining room, a false ceiling with cove lighting runs uninterrupted, but the kitchen is the star of this HDB. The galley-style kitchen has enough space and open shelves to accommodate all of the appliances and accessories needed to assist the homeowner in his culinary endeavours. In contrast to the hardwood surfaces, the kitchen’s colour scheme is predominantly white. 

5. This 3-Room Condo Got a Functional and Pretty Makeover

Kids’ bedroom with bedroom study table and platform bed with storage

Who livs here: Kevin with his wife and two kids

Location: 9A Forest Woods

Type of home: 3-room condo

Livspace team: Interior Designer Mizan Arsad and Project Manager Kelvin Lim

Livspace service: Carpentry, painting, false ceiling, electrical, lighting, wallpaper

Budget: $$$$$

Warm neutrals on the walls and furniture greet you as soon as you enter inside this home. The foyer has a beige-maniate-finished full-wall storage unit dipped in a similar shade of neutrals as the living room. A dark hardwood panel runs from the floor to the ceiling in the living room, along the wall with the TV unit. 

But the most interesting part in this home is the kids’ bedroom. We’ve seen a lot of kids’ rooms in various sizes and styles, but this one stands out. Why? Because when working on this space, Mizan had the ability to make some innovative design decisions. He had to figure out how to meet all of the clients’ requirements without making the area appear too ‘planned.’ Their son had his heart set on the wallpaper you see in this room. The study table suspended from the ceiling is an amazing idea to borrow from this space. It aids in the removal of table legs, creating the illusion of extra floor space.
