This unit at 31 Ghim Moh Link is a resale HDB apartment with an estimated floor area of 1216 sqft. It features a Japandi style. If you are among those who prefer a style that is a cross between Scandinavian and modern Japanese interior design styles, then perhaps you can take a look at this unique Japandi unit with a slight edge in cosmopolitan Singapore. Nonetheless, this unit was the idea and innovation of the creatively gifted Singaporean design team company, Mr. Designer Studio. Ever since they first established their name in the local ID market here, they have conjured their ID renovation magic touch on houses of all statures and sizes across Singapore. Alongside its Japandi theme, this unit incorporated a minimalist look that is welcoming, uses neutral tones, plenty of textures and natural materials. For example, there are a lot of wood furnishings in the surroundings of its living spaces since wood is inviting but has a simple rustic appeal. A dominant percentage of this unit uses wood as its backsplash and embellishments on the walls, furniture and flooring. At the same time, a couple of statement pieces stood out and made an excellent decor for the spaces in this unit. For example, one of the most notable highlights would be the linear-shaped wooden kitchen cabinetry. Over here, all the kitchen's functional utilities are built-in the furniture.
We would like to recommend the designer and his team for we first came upon Mr Designer Studio on the social media pages where we were awe-struck by one of their completed project. Other than that, they have an eye for details and successfully find out what we are looking for while considering factors like price tag and a practical design that fits into our humble abode. Furthermore, they are meticulous and proactive which gives them a cutting-edge over other ID firms we met. When the renovation was finally completed, the designer went beyond the extra mile to start project management by helping with error checks while ensuring that the timeline was met. Nonetheless, the renovation process was a breeze despite the lack of manpower due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. However, the designer and his team constantly update us on the house progress and also gave us honest feedback.
The bathroom has a Speedy Decor full-mirrored cabinet that has a rustic appearance thanks to its wood material. But what makes this bathroom cabinet stand out from the cookie-cutter designs is the bright lights that come from beneath the mirrors. Naturally, they help to illuminate specific living spaces in the bathroom, especially the Econflo white ceramic seat-on toilet and the WhiteHorse white ceramic washing sink. Other than that, the bathroom cabinet also provides storage for your bathroom essentials. Therefore, you can keep them tidy and free from clutter. The small shower cubicle has an IKEA stainless steel showerhead with a full water spray for bathing.
The walls on the bathroom shower cubicle look vibrant and eye-catching, thanks to the Whitehorse multicolored porcelain tiles backsplash on the part where the IKEA shower head is mounted. Nevertheless, the WhiteHorse porcelain tiles are reminiscent of aqua gemstones found along the beaches of the Caribbeans shore. The stainless-steel showerhead is infused with the latest jet spray technology to give the user a spa-like bathing sensation. Moreover, it is also ergonomic since you can hold the shower handle for hours to bathe, albeit without aching your delicate hands. The transom windows help to bring in natural sunlight and a breeze of ventilation.
The kitchen looks rustic and nature-inspired due to its beautiful wood designs. However, what makes this kitchen stand out is due to its linear or straight kitchen design. Nonetheless, this Speedy Decor kitchen cabinet design is versatile and helps to maximize the space area and give an illusion of spaces even though the living spaces is compact for starters. The minimalistic style of the kitchen gives your home a trendy and classy look. But most importantly, a smooth workflow is possible since all the main functional utilities, like the sink, exhaust hood and the LG washing machine are arranged in a straight line.
The dining area uses an open-space concept since it is next to the kitchen. A notable example is that there aren't any walls or partitions to separate the access between the two living spaces. Hung above the white plastered ceiling is a MyLighthouse modern pendant light to help illuminate the living spaces, especially on the Speedy Decor white Statuario marble dining table for a young modern family to dine in style and comfort. Moreover, the black dining chairs are ergonomic and are suitable for the user to sit for hours without discomfort. The walls in the corner are a product of oak wood.
The living room has a large LG Black Screen TV mounted on the Nippon's pristine white wall. Moreover, the brightness of the white wall provides a distraction away from the darkness of the black-screen TV. After all, both have contrasting colors, like yin versus yang. Nonetheless, the Speedy Decor tv console is perfect for helping the user to store the remote control. At the same time, the Sony white four-blade ceiling fan is suitable for providing ventilation in the room when the weather gets humid. The large ExpressWindows bay windows bring a streak of natural sunlight into the living spaces.
Overall, we can conclude and wrap it up by saying that the unit is designed for a quintessentially Japandi style. For example, this unit is space-enhanced despite being initially a compact-sized unit. This factor can be seen clearly in its limited spaces that are heavily decluttered and maximized to full effect. One of the most noteworthy examples would be in the living room. The designer specifically mounted the LG Black Screen TV on the Nippon white painted wall so that the area looks neat and free from clutter. Whatsmore, the whiteness of the walls provides a distraction from the dark screen of the black LG TV. Furthermore, the white tv feature wall helps to give an illusion of spaces.
Finally, the theme across the house fits perfectly with everything surrounding it. The colors are natural and neutral but with a rustic tone that makes your interior a cut above the rest!
