Most of us include “buying a nice home” in our 10-year plan, but think it’s far beyond our reach. Not true at all, since interior design firm Design4Space offers up stunning HDB renovations that’ll transform any space into your dream home.

Whether you’re starting with the clean slate of a BTO or working with the complete revamp of a resale flat, Design4Space has a range of designs that’ll fit a budget of $30,000. Here’s how you can get swap out those window grills, plasticky floor tiles, and office-style blinds for a home you’re proud of:

 

1. Minimalist with monochrome decor

Keeping it monochrome - that’s about as classy as it gets. At just under $30k, this home reno has us awed with its stylish black couch and glossy finishings. There’s even a monochromatic-patterned rug for the coffee table, that adds some pizzazz for a streamlined look.

Unlike most minimalist designs, this renovation flaunts a whole lotta serious thought. Even the wallpanes are etched with a black-and-white design and the ceiling fan coloured a matte black. We can already imagine living here: at the end of every day, you’ll be stepping into a classy abode that looks like it’s from a magazine centrefold.

 

2. Modern with pops of yellow

Fine, we’re cheating a little here: this home reno cost $30,500 - bringing us just half a grand over budget. But it sure is worth it, since it’s a modern design that wisely relies on all the tricks of the trade. A floor-to-ceiling mirror in the living room for an added illusion of space? Clean white walls for a refined edge? Traditional wooden furniture for cosy feels? It’s got it all.

There are also cleverly-placed pops of yellow everywhere, from the bright lemon tint of the light fixings to the mustard-yellow of the sofa.

 

3. Classic with a neutral palette

Here’s a design that won’t be outdated anytime soon. With neutral finishings and functional wardrobes, this renovated flat is as functional as it is aesthetic. Design4Space has transformed a cookie-cutter HDB flat into a classic home for just $30,000 - right within your budget.

The bedrooms also have a flair of elegance, with glass cabinets and modern chandelier-inspired lights. 20 years down the road, and you’ll be more than pleased that your chosen design is still as stylish as it was in 2018.

 

4. Airy with an all-white design

This all-white design is one of our favourites. Even though the walls and floorings are plain white, it cleverly uses a range of different whites and textures for visual interest. Plenty of thought has gone behind the furniture - that pale blue sofa and yellow ottoman are stunning in their contrast.

The dining area is no different with multi-patterned chairs and hanging photographs. Kudos for the stylish lighting fixture here too: it’s housed in a quirky glass case with exposed lightbulbs.

 

5. Cosy with stylish furniture pieces

As much as we all want to live in a grand mansion, there are often times when we have to make do with what we have. And in this case, what we have is a stylish HDB flat that knows how to use every nook and cranny. For instance, the flatscreen TV is hung against the wall so there aren’t any unsightly wires and plugs peeking out.
