5 HDB Features That Will Instantly Give Your Home A Luxe Condo Vibe

Modern HDB features

We’ve all seen staggeringly lavish designs that we instantly shrugged off as condo only. But that dream walk-in wardrobe and massive kitchen island can still easily be achieved – if you have the right interior designer, that is. With Design4Space, a local interior design firm, they’ve got the experience to transform your bleak HDB flat into a stylish abode.

Here are 5 design features to upgrade your flat to luxe condo-level:

1. Walk-in wardrobe

If you’ve got a ton of clothes but nowhere to put them, you can either donate or build a custom walk-in wardrobe. The latter is definitely included in our dream home: it’ll be a joy to get dolled up every morning. No more cramped space or hangers strewn messily about, but instead, a standalone accessories table and neatly hanging pieces – all colour-coded for convenience.

But since each and every square foot matters, there’s no need to dedicate such a large chunk of liveable space for your clothes. Consider a walk-in corridor, of sorts, that’ll lead from your bedroom to your ensuite bathroom. This cleverly saves space while offering the same walk-in experience.

2. Feature wall

Feature walls are an age-old styling trick for a reason – it adds an extra touch of luxury with little to no effort. But don’t just charge ahead with your favourite colours, and make sure that the shade or texture you pick complements the overall colour palette.

Here’s a takeaway tip: the more colourful your furniture or decor, the more neutral your feature wall should be.

3. Bathtub

Having a bathtub is #bathroomgoals for those who want to leisurely drift away amidst fragrant bubble baths and tingling sea salts. But let’s face the truth – not a single BTO flat comes with a built-in tub. To best enjoy those LUSH bath bombs you’ve already splurged on, consider adding a bathtub to your floor plan.

They add an instant luxe factor to any HDB flat. If you’re short on space, you can also opt to combine a shower room and bathtub together.

4. Kitchen island

The one thing about American white picket fence homes is that they all come with a massive kitchen. These kitchens aren’t just a beaut to cook in – they also have functional features, like a kitchen island, for you to do ingredient prep and use as extra storage.

A kitchen island doubles up as a dining table too, since you can easily style it with bar stools or counter seats.

5. Glass doors and dividers

If you live in a cosy flat that’s short on space, the one trick to creating more room is glass everything. Here’s when glass doors and dividers come in handy: you’ll still have functional sliding doors and separators but with the illusion of space.

Even better if these doors pull open fully – you can easily convert a study or spare room to become part of your open-plan living area.
