10 Inspiring HDB Home Offices Where You Can Definitely Get Some Work Done

In our fifth and final instalment of our mini-series on best HDB designs, where we’ve already explored the living room, kitchen, bathroom and the bedroom, we now turn to an oft overlooked part of a flat – the home office AKA the study room.

The thing about this part of the home is that not everyone has it or will want it. Unlike the kitchen or the bathroom, it’s not a necessity. Rather, it’s a nice-to-have that you will consider setting aside a part of your home for should you have enough space in it.

But for folks who work from home, the home office might be essential for you, which is why you should probably invest some thought into it. (No, a desk and an ergonomic chair aren’t all there is to a home office.)

So we’ve scoured some of the best study rooms and home offices in HDB flats that are just buzzing hubs of creativity and energy, spaces certain to inspire your next big idea, or just for you to get some work done.

1. Simply Scandi

Design: Arte Living
Location: Sengkang

This frills-free Scandinavian study room features bright pops of yellow amidst an all-white palette. The room emits cheeriness with an understated elegance, but it’s not without function. Extra storage is found underneath the bay seat, while the floating desk provides leg room while providing a visual lightness to the space.


2. Monochromatic Minimalism

Design: 0932 Design Consultants
Location: Singapore

Natural light reaches the inside of this monochromatic home office through the use of clear glass walls. The black frames draw design parallels with the lines in the room – you see it in the bookshelves, the window blinds and the wire-framed furniture. It’s minimalistic, yet it radiates all sorts of panache.


3. Dark and Handsome

Location: Serangoon Central

Think black accents and clad your home office with rich, dark wood surfaces that are textured with coarse grains if you want a home office that is for the suit and tie executive. It exudes a very professional look, yet unlike the strait-laced workplaces in a lot of traditional offices, the wood adds a warm feel.


4. Art Attack

Design: Free Space Intent
Location: Simei

Fan blades, the high gloss study table and bay seat are finished in high-gloss red, which are contrasted against the matte-red surfaces of the ceiling beam and the wall so that the room isn’t overpowered with too much sheen. It’s an audacious colour for a study room, but it will definitely invigorate the occupant. Furnishings were chosen to add a retro pop art effect.


5. Barrel of Fun

Location: Sengkang

What is most eye-catching in this work station is the cleverly-designed wall shelf, custom made to spell the word “book” and done with a raw, cement screed finish. The splodges of colours here, burgundy and yellow, bring a buzzing energy to this space.


6. For Leisure

Design: Free Space Intent
Location: Telok Blangah

If you tend to spend time perusing novels than work in your study room, consider transforming the space into a reading room instead. An indented bookshelf with spotlights is a great way to showcase your tomes. Do away with the desk and have a comfortable lounger. Then complete the picture with an overhanging light source, perfect for reading your afternoons away.


7. Wood Play

Design: DB Studio
Location: Sengkang

There is warmth in this whitewashed study room, thanks to the addition of light wood surfaces. The wood elements offer up a colour contrast, without being too conflicting so the room doesn’t feel like it’s washed out and one-dimensional.


8. Pastel Perfection

Design: Free Space Intent
Location: Punggol

Pops of pastels have been on trend for a long while now. And we can’t think of a reason why not. Sweet pastels add a soothing atmosphere, creating a conducive environment for work. Match them with light woods for a Swede-chic look if you’re all for the Scandi theme.


9. Two in One

Design: Hue Concept
Location: Hougang

Here’s another his-and-her home office that ensures both parties get their own space within the same room. Accessories keep both areas distinct to reflect the different needs and personalities of the couple, but the industrial style shelving helps to tie in the room together.


10. As Clear as Day

Design: Space Sense Studio
Location: Toa Payoh

Nothing says chic and modern like a clear glass study table. It’s a perfect choice if you have a small room and want to visually expand the size of the space, preventing the area from looking like it’s packed with furniture. An open bookshelf that tapers off near the top also gives the illusion of a taller room.
