Before & After: A 32-Year-Old Resale Flat Transformed Into A Modern Luxe Home That Looks Like A Brand-New Condo
Renovations for this Bukit Panjang flat cost $90k to $100k.
This 32-year-old flat in Fajar Road in Bukit Panjang was given a new lease of life with this home renovation project. Previously a dark, dated and dreary home — replete with outdated sunflower tiles and lime green curtains — it can now very well pass off as a brand-new condominium unit.
It took four months and around $90k to $100k to completely overhaul this 1,330 sq ft five-room flat, interior designer Yangming of interior design firm Aart Boxx Interior tells 8Days.sg.
The young couple that lives here gravitated toward the modern luxe interior design style that’s popular in Taiwan, which boasts bright airy spaces punctuated with updated, elegant elements. With that as a starting point, Yangming’s proposal included touches that the couple likes, such as glass blocks, as well as design elements that are all the rage these days, including fluted glass, rounded edges and herringbone vinyl flooring.
In terms of spatial planning, a few layout changes were made — walls were hacked in the living room, kitchen and master bedroom, “not only to enlarge the space but also to reconfigure to the homeowners’ lifestyles],” he explains.
