With renovation costs under $35k.
This five-room HDB BTO home was designed to look like a Scandinavian-style cafe-inspired home. The young couple engaged the help of interior design firm Fineline, who suggested a palette of white and wood-look finishes for a warm ambience yet bright interior. Taking advantage of the space available next to the bomb shelter, a study nook was created and tucked cosily at this corner. This way, it allows more space for the adjacent living room too. The homeowners also wanted more storage so the designers built a feature wall complete with compartments framed with white powdercoated steel.

The wall between the kitchen and living room was hacked, with an island now sitting between the spaces. White subway tiles frame the kitchen area while ambient lighting exudes a warm and cosy atmosphere.
