These days, HDB apartments are not just a roof over our heads. These 10 jaw-dropping HDB homes that don’t skimp on style, cost or cool factor - definitely prove that Singaporeans pull at all the stops when it comes to creating their dream spaces.
The Ultimate Bachelor’s Pad
Interior Designer: Aart Boxx
Tall, dark and handsome, this 2-room HDB is sheathed in sultry, matte black all over. Its sleek and cosmopolitan vibe culminates with the ultimate daredevil standout – a glass encased bathroom that overlooks the master bedroom, leaving nothing to the imagination.
The Next Best Thing to Versailles Palace
Interior Designer: Fifth Avenue Interior
This HDB maisonette came straight out of a chateau in France! Opulent and unabashedly extravagant, the only difference between it and a Baroque palace is the hints of modern touches – from the clean-cut cabinetry to minimalist glass paneling.
The Urban-Bohemian Jungalow
Interior Designer: Create
Vintage curios sit alongside iconic, modern furniture pieces, while flourishing plants bring a lush contrast to the home’s otherwise white-washed space. Every inch of this worldly jungalow is a insta-worthy spot.
The Pineapple Under The Sea
Interior Designer: Icon Interior Design
Besides the obvious Spongebob-references, this fun-loving HDB flat takes it a notch further by incorporating nautical themed elements throughout. It almost feels like you’re already living in Bikini Bottom.
The House of Sliding Doors
Interior Designer: Asolidplan
Now you see me, now you don’t! The fun never ends with this 2-room HDB. Working around the flat’s odd, angular layout is a series of sliding doors which conceal and camouflage different ‘areas’ of the house.
The Avant-Garde Art Installation
Interior Designer: Asolidplan
Equal parts Japanese Tatami room and ultra-modern industrial crib, this home looks more like an art installation than someone’s house. Its unique built-ins pack a practical punch too – doubling as lighting holders and storage shelves or compartments.
The Open Concept Hipster Loft
Interior Designer: Linear Space Concepts
The future of flexi HDBs is having no walls – save for the ones at the bathroom and the kitchen, allowing for a seamless transit from dining, living to bedroom in just a matter of steps.
The Old-School Classroom
Interior Designer: Museum Homes
Cement floors, frosted glass louvre windows and metal sliding gates take us back to our good ol’ classroom days.
But there’s more to this utilitarian HDB than giving us major throwback vibes. The living room features a raised daybed-cum-storage compartment for lazing the day away in, and the kitschy kitchen’s bottle green cabinets double as nifty chalkboards.
The Oriental-Inspired Presidential Suite
Interior Designer: Bowerman
Oriental accents match impeccably with the rest of the space’s relatively clean and modern fixtures, creating a luxurious enclave that’d put any five-star hotel suite to shame.
The next ultimate HDB home could be yours.
