Condo Interior Design In Singapore
Renovating your new condominium (condo) unit can be very different from renovating an HDB unit. In Singapore, condominiums can have different guidelines on renovation depending on the developer, and this can be a problem if you are not familiar with renovating a new condo unit.

Interior designers at Space Factor will first understand your taste and preferences, then delicately balance between functionality and aesthetics to deliver your dream home.

USEFUL CONDO RENOVATION TIPS
Before engaging in a condo renovation work, you may want to look out for the following:
- Understanding your condominium renovation guidelines: Each condo have their own set of guidelines to adhere to so as to maintain the aesthetics or safety of the development. If you engage our condo interior designers, we will first understand the rules before working with you on the design for your home.
- Works to be implemented: Do make sure to ask your designers before embarking on the condo interior design project. The usual works are ceiling, carpentry and miscellaneous works. The designer should also advice the lighting, textures, colors and furniture to be added into your home.
- Resales vs new condos: Resale condos are usually more costly to renovate, simply because there may be additional works (like demolition, concealing cables, tearing down additions etc) that needs to be done. For new condos, these additional works can be avoided, saving time and money.
CONDO INTERIOR DESIGN TIPS
If you are looking to design your apartment yourself, here are some tips for you to make your condo look bigger. However, these are just general advice. You will need the experience to know what gives off the best effect. Therefore, let us help you with that!
USE OF MIRRORS
The use of mirrors is a good tip for those who wish to make their room look larger than it actually is. It provides an illusion of depth and also reflects light, making a room look larger. Using mirror tabletops and mirror cabinets can also help to give your home a more open feel.
MAKE YOUR ROOMS WELL-LIT
Lighting is one key element in making your apartment look bigger. If your house lacks natural lighting, it is essential that you add some lighting to make your house as well-lit as possible. You will be surprised at how much it can help to open up your space.
Maximise the open spaces in your apartment by placing large pieces of furniture against the walls. Try not to arrange furniture such that they block the pathways in your house as this will make your rooms look cramped. In addition, try to opt for multi-function furniture such as a sofa with storage space beneath to help you save as much space as possible.
USE LIGHT COLOURS
If you want to make your room look bigger, you can choose light colours when painting your walls. Light colours are brighter and can make your room look bigger. Light coloured walls are brighter and generally more reflective. This will give off a more open feel. To maximise the effect, use light colours along with the use of mirrors; mirrors will reflect light and bright colours better, making your room look bigger.
