In addition to a sense of spaciousness, the homeowner wanted adequate storage space in her new home. She was also concerned about feng shui as the main entrance faces the living area. Instead of creating a divider to block off prying eyes, the Artistroom design team has positioned the seating area in a manner that creates a mini foyer between the main entrance and living area, providing the needed privacy while maintaining a good flow. A full-height storage unit continues from here to the kitchen, fulfilling her storage needs in an understated manner.

The owner enjoys cooking and hosting. So, the team took its cue from the homeowner’s personality to design the kitchen. Rosy pink wall tiles inject youthfulness and fun into the space. They play off beautifully against the dark woodgrain cabinets and appliances, as well as the black faucet and lighting. By converting the kitchen into an open-concept space, the team ensured plenty of countertop space for food prep and small appliances.

To make this transformation possible, Artistroom removed the original kitchen and bedroom walls. The team took a fresh approach, reorientating the space to accommodate larger living and kitchen areas and for a good flow. One bedroom is now the dining space, and a cut-out window connects the living area and the kitchen visually. It also functions as a display area and minimises views from the main entrance.

One of the things the homeowner shared with the designers was her intention to remain in this home for a long time. The team decked out the master bathroom in dark patterned wall tiles and black sanitary fittings for their timeless appeal. Lastly, partial wall tiling that balances the dark tiles with white walls and woodgrain floor tiles results in an airy space. In all, the use of such consistent elements throughout the home ensures that the design will last for years to come.

The master bedroom is a space dedicated to relaxation and sleep. But first, the wall between two bedrooms was shifted to accommodate a walk-in wardrobe. Next, the team customised the walk-in wardrobe for practical use and included drawers, hanging racks and open shelving where everything can be viewed easily.
