After A $160K Reno, Maisonette Now Has A Bathroom Worthy Of A 5-Star Hotel, Swing & A Huge Walk-In Wardrobe
Step inside this home to a family of three that’s serving boutique hotel vibes.
Believe it or not, this luxurious bathroom — replete with a bathtub and double vanity — isn’t in a hotel, but a 37-year-old maisonette in Hougang. The bathroom is part of a impressive master suite that’s giving major five-star hotel vibes.
The spacious 1,603 sq ft abode underwent a complete facelift that cost about $160K, and has transformed from a drab and dated flat into a modern luxe abode fit for the homeowners and their daughter. The project, helmed by Jesigns Interior Design designers Shun Li and Desmond Neo, took 11 weeks to complete.
The impressive master suite is easily the pièce de résistance here. The homeowners had initially requested a huge wardrobe in the original master bedroom. But due to space constraints, a layout change had to be made — two common bedrooms were combined to form a new master bedroom, and the new spacious room could now accommodate a walk-in wardrobe.
The original master bedroom was converted to a bedroom for the homeowners' daughter, and has bright, cheery interiors to boot.
While it was all about creating personal sanctuaries for the family upstairs, the first level of the apartment was all about transforming it into a playground to host gatherings. Quite literally.
There’s a swing from the homeowners’ previous home perched in the balcony, a perfect nook to unwind or for tete-a-tetes under the stars.
The balcony complements a huge living room, where a custom-made TV console takes centrestage. The TV console’s unique design was inspired by kueh lapis, and each individual panel was picked out carefully and put together to form the final piece.
An open plan kitchen that connects it with the dining area makes it a breeze to host gatherings.
