This townhouse is proof that a home can be practical yet chic

This luxurious townhouse exudes subtle luxury with its detailed design perks.

Home Type: Townhouse

Floor Area: 3,300 sqft


When you’re renovating your home, it’s always a challenge to find the right balance between style and practicality. On one hand, you want your new house to look good; on the other hand, it still has to be practical enough for everyday living. After all, there’s no point in staying in a beautiful home if it only makes life more challenging.

In this spacious townhouse, Joey Khu ID crafted spaces that hit the sweet spot between chic luxury and relaxed practicality. The well-thought out spaces are a reflection of the owner’s lifestyle requirements and are fitted with ornate elements and luxury features. Subtle and sleek design is key to giving this home an air of refinement, but at the same time, the interior designers incorporated all the facilities you would expect in a luxury home.

In the living room on the ground floor, a tall feature wall merges with the TV console, forming a statement-making feature. Instead of a plain, laminate-clad wall, the designer added thin strips of wood in a somewhat random order. This instantly breaks the monotony of a flat plain, but doesn’t add bulk to the existing layout.

Over on the topmost floor, one of the rooms has been converted into a study. The pitch roof could have been a waste of valuable space, but the designer managed to incorporate the sharp triangular nook into the design of the shelving system. The result is a wall of both open and closed compartments, providing more than enough room to keep books and other paraphernalia.

Simplicity is key when designing a bedroom whose prime purpose is to help you rest and sleep well. As such, this bedroom features all the trappings of a laidback sanctuary. Plush carpets and black-out draperies instantly do the trick. The design team also customised the carpentry, including the bay seat windows, bedside tables and headboard.

Sliding pocket doors lead into this bathroom from the attached master bedroom. Here, a dusky ambience brings visions of posh hotel bathrooms to mind. Stone-textured walls, backlit mirrors and his-and-hers washbasins only encourage the need to complete pampering and relaxation.
