Small BTO bedroom designs can feel cramped and uncomfortable. As HDB flats in Singapore are becoming smaller, it can be challenging to fit everything we want into our tiny master bedrooms. However, with smart layout design and clever styling, we can transform a small space into a comfortable and spacious space.
Here are some practical tips and solutions when it comes to planning your BTO bedroom design.
Practical Tips For BTO Bedroom Designs
Unlock the full potential of your BTO bedroom with these practical tips. Consider these essential elements before you start planning to create the bedroom space.
1. Use a platform bed
Using a platform bed in the bay window area can be a practical solution to maximize space in a Singapore BTO bedroom. It can create a cozy and functional sleeping area, while also making use of an often underutilized area in the room.
2. Utilize bay windows
Bay window, which are more often found in HDBs and condominiums in Singapore. Many homeowners have turned bay windows in small bedrooms and living rooms alike into more functional spaces, such as cabinets for extra storage, platform beds, reading nooks, desks and even dressing tables. Instead of letting precious space go to waste, make the most out of it.
3. Use mirrors
Mirrors can be used to make a bedroom (or any space) look bigger. They reflect light throughout the room, making every nook and cranny appear brighter and sharper.
4. Let in natural light to make the room feel brighter and airier
Natural sunlight and artificial lights play a great role in the interior design of your bedroom. By allowing natural light to enter the room, it can create a sense of openness and help to eliminate any feeling of claustrophobia. With large windows, you can bring more sunlight to the bedroom, and the bigger your room will look
5. Choose a light and neutral color palette
This is the starting point and key when it comes to pulling together a theme you want. Create a cohesive look with a defined color palette, opt for whites and calming neutral tones to maximize your living room's visual space and add dimension. White helps to make the space look bigger by reflecting light off of every surface and gives more depth to the room.
6. Consider stripes wallpaper
The secret to expanding small spaces: Wallpaper stripes! Thin stripes create an illusion of height, with vertical stripes making walls appear taller, and horizontal stripes giving the illusion of width. Designers cannot emphasize how the power of parallel lines provides the visual trick to make a room feel bigger.
Vertical stripes create an illusion of height by drawing the eyes upwards. It will help to stretch a room and make it feel taller than it is. These vertical lines give a perception of a taller room, making your room feel airiness and more spacious.
Horizontal striped wallpaper, on the other hand, expands a room's perception sideways by creating an illusion of width.
