25 Sep HDB BTO Bar Top Dining Maximise Space
In this HDB BTO flat, the designer ingeniously installs a bar top dining table to save space, together with a wooden countertop to continue the woody aspect and theme of the décor. The designer takes it up a notch further when he used black and gray as the complimentary color to the whole area.
Adhering to the minimalistic approach, the designer uses wooden laminates to make the environment cheerful, warm, cozy and comfortable while keeping the stunning appearance. The use of plush carpets and big, cozy green chairs adds more class and sophistication to the space.
The designer made sure to choose only the basic furnishings and home decor so as not to go overboard and miss the minimalist look that was targeted for the flat.
The use of wooden laminates in the living area is a chic alternative to the usual stark and bare walls. It even adds life as it became the accent wall where the TV is located. The whole room is almost empty making it look more spacious, and a large mirror opposite the TV feature wall creates an even more bigger area due to the reflection created.
Once you get to the kitchen through the glass panels, you get to experience the full beauty of the wooden laminate design. The designer mixes the wooden laminates with quartz countertop and black tiles for a more dramatic and elegant appearance. The oven, which is neatly tucked in between cabinets does not create an obtrusive block to the limited space in the area.
The glass paneled door that separates the kitchen from the rest of the flat is both decorative and functional as what the designer purposely envisioned it to be. With the black frames and the paneling, it is a great way to create the illusion of depth as well as the dynamics between kitchen and dining area. Style was definitely not forgotten when the kitchen was designed.
The use of an L-shaped wardrobe in the bedroom was a good way to create function for an otherwise dead spot in one corner of the room. The bedroom also features an entertainment section, separated through glass panels.
The mirror that separates the bedroom from the entertainment area doubles as a stylish way to create more space in the bedroom due to the expansive reflection it makes.
