Light and airy contemporary industrial home at 703 Choa Chu Kang St 53

In sharing their home design, this young couple opted for a combination of simple and spacious design with a touch of industrial style incorporated. A palette of grey and walnut, pops of greenery, and textiles was chosen to make the home cosy despite the size
Visitors are greeted via a walkway that leads into the entrance of the home, flanked by full height mirrors on the left side, and large windows on the right. The mirrors’ reflection not only help to bring the outdoors in, but also serve the purpose of allowing the home owners to do a final check of their dressing before heading out. A full-height shoe cabinet is conveniently located by the door.
The living and dining areas of the home combine to occupy and share a common space. A grey L-shaped sofa anchors the living area and sits square in-front of the TV feature wall with mounted console. Dark walnut vinyl flooring decks the entire home’s floor area except for the kitchen, where warm light-grey homogeneous tiles are used instead. These tiles allow for easier cleaning especially after cooking and are more resistant against heat, oil and other elements present in the kitchen as compared to traditional vinyl.
The large and spacious kitchen is lined by cabinets in an L-shape along two walls and offers tremendous storage space. The colour palette chosen here kept with the overall contemporary industrial theme. Apart from regular top and bottom kitchen cabinets, a tall unit was built to house an oven and a large pantry corner which further conceals individual pull-out drawers. At the L-shaped corner of the cabinets, our team made use of a special hinge mechanism that allowed the door to open almost fully. This gives the home owners better space usage in a corner that would usually be harder to access due to the modular way the cabinets are constructed and assembled.
The spacious bedroom and walk-in-wardrobe was achieved by combining two original bedrooms into one. This allows the couple to maximize their space and also incorporate a dressing area that is next to the master bathroom. Two large rows of wardrobe space, coupled with strategically placed compartments allow the home owners to arrange their clothing and accessories according to their respective categories. The dressing table also incorporates a compartmentalized pull-out drawer for storage of watches and other accessories.
Although the bathroom’s floor area is limited, our team incorporated full stretch mirrors to create a perception of a wider space. Stone-patterned tiles were used as an accent against the pristine white canvas that cladded the majority of the bathroom’s walls. Gold tinted fixtures such as the rain shower and tap were chosen to sprinkle a touch of luxury without deviating too far from the home’s original industrial theme.
