In our latest Reno themed issue, we’ve put together a series of stories, ideas and tips to help make the entire home renovation experience a truly fun and inspiring one.

We kickstart the journey with a finely curated selection of products for all the main rooms of the house, and given that the kitchen is fast becoming the heart of the home, we’ve asked interior designer Lucas Yang of Archive Design to share useful tips and tricks for designing this space.

Every home comes with a floor plan but not everyone may know how to read it much less take full advantage of the space that they have been given. In our 7-page feature ‘All laid out’, we present the ‘before’ and ‘after’ floor plans and the final transformation of an HDB flat and apartment. We trust this will be a particularly handy guide to those embarking on their own home reno journey!

Material selection is another important part of the renovation process. In ‘Material world’, we feature three beautiful natural materials, and their engineered alternatives that achieve a similar look.

Along with practical ideas, our Reno themed issue has no shortage of stunning home stories to inspire one’s own journey to make a house a home. We also roundup the main highlights, trends and favourite products from Singapore Design Week, speak with Tom Dixon and Ikea on their newly launched Delaktig ‘hackable’ furniture, and interview Upstairs, a fast-rising interior design firm in Singapore that has garnered great media attention following its major wins at Lookbox Design Awards 2017.
