3 Stunning HDBs Designed for Your Dream Home Inspiration

March 26th 2024

Are you thinking of redesigning or renovating your HDB? If you are, it’s time to look at these three extraordinary homes brought to life by renowned (and locally-based) interior design companies.

The Alchemists  

First up, we have this breathtaking 5-bedroom HDB designed by The Alchemists. If you’re looking for a modern and minimalistic home with earthy tones, this gorgeous home will be the perfect inspiration for you! 

Living Room 

The living room embraces an expansive and spacious ambiance, highlighted by the expansive windows and natural lighting flowing in. On the left side is a minimalistic TV feature wall and additional cabinets, while on the right is a cozy L-shaped sofa paired with charming tables. For instance, the one-of-a-kind white sofa-side table looks like a monkey holding up items. Not only does it look incredibly adorably, but it blends in seamlessly with the modern theme with its simplistic white colour.


In fact, here’s another view of this gorgeous living room later on in the day. Don’t you agree that the darker tone makes the living room look more serene, like it’s inviting you to rest for the day? Not to mention, the strategically placed spotlights and expansive windows also allows you to control the amount of light you get – no matter what time of the day it is. 

Let’s now take a closer look at the TV feature wall. It boasts a wooden TV console table, grey floating cabinets on the left, and a massive TV wall mounted against a simple grey background. Here, The Alchemists really brought the TV feature wall to life with all the details. For instance, the curved edges of the wooden console table, and the floating feature of the grey cabinets enhance the sophisticated and minimalistic look of the entire space. 

While the TV feature wall takes on a more simple look, the right side of the living room boasts more elaborate details – another strategic move by The Alchemist to ensure the living room appears cohesive, but at the same time, not overwhelming. A huge brown rug anchors the space, while the cozy L-shaped sofa is decked out with quileted pillows and accessories for additional comfort. Tying in the space together is the charming pair of black-and-grey circular coffee tables. 

Now, let’s take a closer look at the corner of the living room! The potted plants add a pop of greenery, while enhancing the serenity of the entire living room. In fact, this space is smartly integrated by The Alchemist, where they successfully integrated the homeowners’ interest in plants and enhance the living room space at the same time. 


Dining Area

Now, let’s take a look at the dining area. Similar to the living room, the dining area takes on an earthy tone and features a modern look. Anchoring the space is the massive wooden curved dining table paired with a leather bench and two charming chairs. On the left side are open cabinets topped with greenery and various-sized boxes, ensuring functionality with the storage space, but still keeping the space neat and clean. In fact, this stunning space is tied in with all the details – from the curved feature of the table to the infusion of the potted plants. 

Let’s take another look at the dining area. Apart from the more simple potted plants, a more intricately arranged flower pot is also included to add a touch of interest to the space. Moreover, the choice of dried flowers is also practical – not only do they look realistic and gorgeous, but they will last a long time as well. 



Now, let’s turn around from the dining room and enter the kitchen. Despite the limited space, The Alchemist managed to make the space look spacious and inviting with the use of an open concept, a lighter tone, and curved details. The curved bar table not only offers functionality with the additional tabletop, but the fluted design enhances the kitchen’s gorgeous look. 

Taking a closer look into the kitchen, you’ll find grey cabinets everywhere – offering more than enough storage space for all your kitchen needs. Not only are they soft-closing, but the handless feature also adds to the modern look of the home. The charming black-marbled backsplash tiles are also accentuated by the hidden LED light. 

Turning to the other side of the kitchen, you’ll find more cabinet space and floating shelves. Similarly, they are decked out with recessed LED lights. The best part, however, is the seamless integration of the washer and dryer units right underneath the tabletop. 


Now, let’s enter the bathroom. Boasting a dual mirror and a massive tabletop, this bathroom offers the perfect vanity table and sink area. The mirrors feature modern recessed lighting, while the floating wooden sink cabinets offer plenty of storage space. A pop of greenery is added to the space to tie in the earthy-toned look. 

If you’re worried that there might not be enough storage space, The Alchemist has great news for you! On the right, there are plenty more wooden open-shelved cabinets for easier access and functionality to your everyday toiletries. 

To the right of the bathroom is the shower enclosure with modern black edges and frosted glass for additional privacy. 

Inside the shower enclosure, you’ll find a stunning marbled black background and a simple stainless steel shower set. Not only does the marbled backdrop look incredibly stunning, but it also adds functionality – dirt and grime are less likely to be seen. 


Finally, we have the bedroom. Similar to the rest of the home, the bedroom takes on a soothing and serene earthy tone. The bed is framed by a solid wooden backdrop and features a floating curved bedside table – providing convenience and enhancing the modern look of the room.
