Renovation planning for BTO/Resale HDB is often the very first step for many couples looking to start a family, with the decisions made having the potential to shape the next 5 to 10 years of family life.
Dwelling in an aesthetically-pleasing and conducive home environment is a necessity that cannot be taken for granted, made ever more so relevant with the recent trend of hybrid working arrangements that see homeowners spending more time at home. Thus it is of paramount importance that couples make the right choices in their renovation decisions, from materials used to the costs involved.
Generally smaller than resale flats, BTO’s designs tend to feature careful space planning and use of multi functional fixtures such as storage platform beds, which can be used both as a bed and as storage, study tables that double as dressers, and collapsible bi-folding glass doors that help create space for study rooms.
While on the other hand, those looking to renovate resale flats generally spend more money and effort in designing the kitchen & bathrooms as they are not new like BTOs. Old wall and floor tiles are usually replaced with new ones, hence ensuring the importance of creativity in the resale flat designs.
As HDB’s and BTO’s continue being a crucial part of the Singaporean identity, here are interior design and renovation trends that are worth considering if you are planning to “upgrade” the look of your home.’
