This unit at 34 MARGARET DRIVE is a resale HDB apartment with an estimated floor area of 1185 sqft. It features a Modern Scandinavian style. Nonetheless, this unit was the magnum opus of the creatively gifted Singaporean design team company, Juz Interior Pte Ltd. Ever since they first made their foray in the local ID market here, they have managed to successfully put on their ID renovation Midas touch on houses of all statures and sizes across the interior of Singaporean homes. The unit has a Modern Scandinavian design style that was pioneered in the 1950s alongside the Modernist belief in Europe and across America. It is defined by emphasizing democracy, value for the money, and sophisticated furniture and interiors. Clean fluid movements, practical furnishings, and a neutral palette were a trademark of modernist style everywhere. Over here, one of the most noted examples of Modern Scandinavian design is in the bathroom spaces. After all, the owner of this unit has expertly utilized a massive amount of white color that is light-reflecting and helps to maximize the spaces even further. Naturally, white is also a non-contrasting color since it perfectly complements the other bathroom utilities, which are coincidentally, also in white. At the same time, natural white light permeates either from the transom windows or through the energy-saving LED lights beneath the mirrored cabinetry corners.
We decided to engage Juz Interior after talking to a couple of IDs. What make this ID company a cut above the rest was their innovation and creativity, after hearing us talking for hours about what we were trying to realize for our dream unit. The designers know how to think out of the box and the final execution of our house was largely due to the good rapport and communication built between them and the contractors. Speaking of communication skills, we observe that our chosen designer is also accommodating, and negotiable on our different wants and needs and she was able to replicate it into reality through every process of the renovation journey. At the same time, he had a good attitude and showed patience when we could not decide on some aspects. When we reached for some advice, the designer talked to us tactfully and respectfully. Overall, we are blessed to have them!
The living room has a large LG Black Screen TV with a stand. Naturally, this tv stand is space-saving and looks more modern and edgy than a mounted TV. At the same time, the UrbanMood tv console is storage and space-saving for helping to keep entertainment gadgets free from clutter. It is also durable and long-lasting to withstand the weight of the TV. The UrbanMood standing lamp in white is perfect for helping to circulate general lighting across the living spaces. But adjacent to the TV is a HipVan modular sofa set in light grey that has aesthetics and comfort.
The dining area has a HipVan Erin pendant lamp in brass and light grey. Nevertheless, the pendant lights are eye-catching but not overly dramatic. But in terms of functionality, it is fiery enough to light up the focused areas in the dining room. At the same time, the Etsy dining table in sustainably-derived oak wood is perfect for a young modern family of four to dine casually or hold dinner parties. The Frontiera set of fine dining cutleries on the table's surface is light-reflecting due to its white color. Plus, the HipVan Fabiola dining chairs and walnut and dim grey are well-built.
The kitchen has a straight-shaped kitchen cabinet layout. The straight-shaped kitchen layout is excellent for an organized working space since it is in sequential order. Nevertheless, this straight-shaped kitchen layout has a Speedy Decor solid-wood kitchen cabinet. It has a dual-toned color of the uplifting pristine white and light brown rustic-wood design. At the same time, this kitchen's wall backsplash has a Wallhub smooth white marble laminate finish. Plus, the cabinetry has several mainstream built-in kitchen utilities. Among them is a Hoe Kee stainless-steel washing sink that maximizes the highest hygiene standards while maintaining aesthetic confidence due to its sleek design.
The bathroom looks bright and uplifting. For example, there is an IKEA stainless steel showerhead. Naturally, this standing showerhead projects maximum functionality since it is versatile enough for a standing shower or when the user wants to reach those hard-to-reach showering places. At the same time, this showerhead is inside a GamaResources modern and funky-looking half-glass shower cubicle. On the other hand, the DirectCarpentry full-mirrored bathroom cabinet is well-designed with sufficient storage and space-saving compartments. The Hoe Kee white ceramic full-recessed washing sink is light-reflecting and helps to free off spaces due to its bright white color. Plus, it is also low-maintenance.
Overall, we can conclude and wrap it up by saying that the unit is designed for a quintessentially Modern Scandinavian 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. But what makes this unit a cut above the rest? Naturally, it is the high-end decors and furnishings in the living spaces. A noted example would be the linear shaped kitchen cabinetry in the kitchen spaces. Aesthetically speaking, it has a lovely dual-toned combo of white and light-brown rustic wood design. Thus, this aspect suits the cozy and clean lines of the Nordic-style but with a touch of modernity.
Finally, the theme across the house fits perfectly with everything surrounding it. For example, you find a lot of sleek and streamlined designs. In addition, the colors are minimalistic and natural.
