Unique Interior Design Ideas For 4-Room HDB Flats

April 15, 2022

When you are looking for interior design ideas for your 4-room HDB apartments, you can become overwhelmed with the number of choices that you come across. There are several different types of interior design themes and styles that will go quite well in a 4-room HDB BTO or Resale flat. There are often mixes of 2 or more design themes that can also look quite good according to your requirements.

But many times, unless you see how those different themes and designs are being implemented in actual homes, you are just unable to visualize how they will look in your own apartment. This is the reason that we have consolidated some of the portfolios that are designed by us where you are able to see the different interior design themes and styles implemented in actual 4-room HDB apartments through which you can draw inspiration for your own homes.

Whether you are designing your home from scratch or renovating certain aspects of the apartment, these portfolios will give you a starting point of how you want things to move forward with respect to interior design. Check out the following projects that are some unique interior design ideas for 4-room HDB apartments designed by us.

British Colonial Interior With A Black And White Theme

This 4-room resale HDB flat at Tanglin Halt designed by us has a unique and beautiful interior design that features an open-plan living, huge windows, and wooden textures that add a touch of classic British Colonial vibes, minimalism, and aesthetics into the space. Cool-toned earthy colours and the use of natural materials make for a blissful, relaxing and tranquil interior. The colours black and soft chalky white dominate the overall design where dark timber wood and vintage-inspired furnishings are incorporated to add a colonial touch, giving the home its unique appeal.

In the living room, the floors are kept of dark wood colour whereas the furnishings are a mix of leather and cane. Spacious and filled with airiness, do not be afraid to knock down some walls to achieve this effect. Injections of rich dark green were introduced into the natural earthy colour palette of browns drawn from leathers, teak and rattan. The white walls contrast the dark wooden floors whereas the large floor to ceiling cupboard that resembles huge file cabinets adds a touch of character to the design. Beautiful indoor plants brighten the space with a lovely touch of nature, giving the home life, colour and an elevated cosiness as compared to before.

The kitchen also features a neutral earthy and white colour scheme which is in perfect contrast and balance with each other. The kitchen walls and cabinetry are pristine white whereas the countertops are black which match the dark brown wooden floors. This gives a comfortable, chic and lively ambience in the kitchen interior, as the use of cool hues maintains an element of cool minimalism and a relaxed vibe in the space. Notice how a lot of greenery is used in all the areas which uplift the appearance of the space and gives a fresh organic feel to an otherwise dull dark and white theme. Together, the whites, darks, and green give a very modern yet earthly feel to the space.

The bathroom in this HDB flat also has a unique monochrome theme and design that is visually appealing to the eye. The monochromatic floor tiles feature a geometric black and white pattern that makes a bold statement and gives your bathroom a talking point. To prevent them from overwhelming the space, they are balanced with reflective white wall tiles and black bathroom fixtures, and the resulting bathroom is a perfect example of balance and harmony. The matte black bathroom fixtures contrast boldly against a dominant white palette and add a touch of industrialism to the design, resulting in a chic and urban bathroom space. Once again, green leafy plants are incorporated in the interior which adds a pop of colour and freshness to the space.

The simple and elegant view of the living room and kitchen takes a turn when entering the kids’ bedroom.

Again, the minimalist approach is quite evident in the bedroom design. A space-efficient layout is utilised where a small desk and shelving installation unit doubles up as a partition between the bed and the rest of the room. This is perfect for those with space constraints, as this achieves both functionality and aesthetics at the same time. A neutral grey colour scheme is adopted that is matched with wooden accents featured in the flooring that give a natural and calming ambience that is further enhanced by recessed lighting and track lights.
