When you’re pressed for space, sometimes the only way to go is up. We’re not just talking about high-rise buildings in Singapore, which definitely seem to be getting higher and higher. Within your own four walls, you may only have a certain square footage to work with, but that doesn’t mean you can’t think out of the box.
More homeowners are embracing the idea of building lofts or mezzanine floors inside their HDB flats or condominiums, which instantly increases floor space, giving you – literally – more room to live and lounge in. The only drawback, of course, is that this only works if you have a ceiling of a certain height, meaning this design style may not work as well for those with shorter ceilings.
And of course, always check with the relevant authorities like HDB before constructing a mezzanine level, as some apartment blocks come with certain restrictions.
