Bringing order and neatness into this 3 bedroom condo was the main objective of this renovation project. In addition, the couple living here was looking for someone to understand their requirements well and bring ideas to the table. So, when Ava Gui, our designer, stepped in, she knew she was up for a task. She took the reins and started renovating this flat in parts.

Within no time, she could see the condo taking great shape and the couple was loving it. So much so that they even recommended her to their friends midway through the renovation. Read on to find out what this gorgeous home looked like and how we turned it around.


Here’s the clean transformation of this 3 bedroom condo


A warm welcome to this 3 bedroom condo

Everywhere your eyes travel, they meet with warm wooden furniture
We can already imagine family lunches being organised here
Making the best use of empty walls
Carved crockery-cum-bar unit for the win

When you enter this 3 bedroom condo, you will be welcomed with a sense of calm and warmth. Thanks to the abundance of wooden furniture used here, this home feels inviting. Starting from the dining table to the accent chairs placed next to it and the crockery unit, everything looks classic.

A word of advice: If you hate plain walls, get some paintings from galleries or thrift markets and hang ‘em up there.

Clean and simple kitchen for a family that loves to cook

A well-planned kitchen with the right accessories
Seamless cabinetry for a young family
Profile lights reflect on the glossy backsplash

Every family who enjoys cooking together deserves a kitchen that is comfortable and fun to work in. Here, Ava has outfitted this kitchen with the latest appliances and worked out a work triangle for the family. This minimises effort and makes cooking more efficient. The new kitchen is a stark contrast from the original one. It now wears a neutral colour with profile shutters for the cabinets. A quartz countertop and under cabinet lights finish the look.

“We found out about Livspace from a friend and are impressed with their professionalism and commitment. Ava, our designer, and her team had clear ideas and a great sense of colours. Our timelines were maintained and we had a wonderful experience with Livspace.”

We changed the wardrobes in the master bedroom

As far as the master bedroom is concerned, the couple wanted a new look for their wardrobes and Ava gave them matte laminate finish in beige. Contrasting grey handle grooves look classy yet does not take away from the neutral, warm undertones of this room. The rest of the room flaunts simple wooden furniture.

Lofts play a major role in the daughter’s bedroom
Track lights are ideal when you don’t want bulky lights
Corner shelves to keep the look simple

Take a look at this couple’s daughter’s functional bedroom in this 3 bedroom condo. This room has a lot storage by way of lofts and cabinets by the window as well. Ava has given her sliding doors for the wardrobe so that no space is wasted in front to open the shutters. Furthermore, the study corner looks way better now with sleek corner shelves on the wall and a comfy chair for company.

Grey tones and modern look for their son’s bedroom

Cabinets and open shelves for storage and display

The son’s bedroom is rather simple with grey and cool tones dominating the look. Here too, Ava has added an extension to the wardrobes that can turn into a study table if required. He can keep his books and other essentials here, since he does not have side tables.

The bathrooms now look sleek with designated zones

Mirror cabinets to make the space look bigger
Glass door for the shower cubicle
Sleek and simple vanity unit for the master bathroom
All white look accentuated by mosaic tiles
Red accent colour in a simple bathroom
Black stone countertop to offset simple white tones

Moving on to the bathrooms, they are renovated mostly to cover up ugly pipes that are a sore sight in Singapore homes. Ava has consciously tried to maintain a clean look in the bathrooms with one flaunting accent red tiles and the other mosaic. Under cabinet lights for the vanity and shower cubicles separated by glass doors make these bathrooms look neat.

“The couple is very easy going and trusted my recommendations fully. I had to retain some existing elements and merge them seamlessly with the new design. I loved designing the kitchen in particular, since it looks completely different after the renovation. Overall, it was a great experience to work on this project.”
