Moreover, to keep things functional, you would also notice a floor-to-ceiling storage cabinet at the entrance and a cosy dining nook at one end of the living room.

Ideas to steal: Probably the easiest way to amplify the look of your interiors would be to play with colours. The kitchen in this HDB is painted in a gorgeous navy blue hue.

Ideas to steal: Who wouldn’t want a walk-in wardrobe when searching for HDB renovation ideas? The couple got their dream set-up by converting one of their bedrooms solely into a walk-in wardrobe.

Also, if you look closely, you would notice the terrazzo-like table has a glass top on one side to give you a peep into their fancy drawer.
