This tranquil, Japanese tea-room style HDB is a complete overhaul from how it first looked; A conventional, albeit dated house with burdensome pillars and (the horror!) wired window grilles that bring to mind security fences. 



Living Room


Before: Pillars, protruding beams and ceiling fans frankly look passe; Plus, they make the space look shorter than it really is.


After: To achieve that minimalist/Zen style, the fancy wall and ceiling embellishments were taken off, leaving only the structural beams. Unsightly details like the switch box and wiring were also concealed with an in-built cabinet.


Dining Area

Before: What's most concerning here is the narrow arch into the kitchen. It hardly lets any light in, making it look like a literal hole-in-the-wall.


After: Separated by a glass partition, the kitchen and dining areas are now combined to form an brighter, uninterrupted space. Kitchen countertops are also smartly extended to form an island-style dining table.




Before: With worn fittings and grimy, porcelain tiles, the bathroom is functional, but not something to you'd look forward to entering.


 After: Don't want the years of wear and tear to show? Choose a darker scheme instead. Brown tiles in all colours and textures are used to dress this luxurious bathroom, replete with a built-in bathtub!
