This couple’s first home is young, fun and practical

Home to a pair of newlyweds, this 3-bedroom condo unit shows that fun and practicality can go hand in hand.

Home Type: 3-bedroom condominium

Floor Area: 926 sqft

Since the young couple loves cooking, especially on the weekends, they felt that the original layout with an open-concept kitchen was not suitable for their lifestyle. One of their requests to the I.D.I.D design team was for the kitchen to be closed up so that cooking smells will be contained within the kitchen whenever they cook.

To maintain the sense of spaciousness, the designers decided to close up the kitchen using glass panels with black aluminium frames and a clear sliding door. This not only allows light to pass through and brighten the cooking space, it also allows the homeowners to keep an eye on the happenings in the living room even when they are in the kitchen.

What quickly distinguishes the dining area from the other areas is the large peg board. Made with wood grain laminates, this peg board not only serves as a feature wall for the dining space, but also provides display space for lightweight items, allowing the couple to dress up and personalise this space.

In the master bedroom, space is efficiently maximised with a platform bed that comes with plenty of storage compartments. The colour palette is kept neutral and consistent with the rest of the home, providing the couple with a calming sanctuary to rest at the end of the day.
