Located along Sumang Lane, Matilda Court comprises 10 residential blocks, each 17 storeys in height. Homeowners can take their pick from the 1,162 units of 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-room Standard Flats offered in this development. The name “Matilda Court” is inspired by the historical Matilda House located in Punggol Town and the lush green spine that forms the heart of the development. On that note, let’s take a look at some useful layout designs that might give you some ideas and inspiration for your new home!
Homeowners who chose the 5-room flat can enjoy a big living room like that of a landed house, with plenty of space for multiple sofas. You also have the option of placing your dining table right in front of the kitchen.

You can make use of the area near the household shelter (see pink highlights above) and:
1. Turn it into a display cabinet for your books and other home decorations
2. Turn it into a bicycle rack as well as medal/award display
3. Turn it into a “hidden” bed that looks like a cabinet when fully retracted. This bed can potentially serve other functions, such as acting as an extra couch when your friends come to visit.
Want to have a Japanese style dining area? You can create it on your own like so! Just remember to use wood-related materials and earthy colours for a more authentic effect. Cabinets can be added if you require more space to store your cutlery and utensils.

Dividers or cabinets placed at the entrance of a house is very normal and kind of boring. For homeowners who chose the 5-room flat, you can make the entrance of your home look as elegant as this, with shoe cabinets, a sleek, commercial look, as well as good fengshui (a good front door opens into a wide space instead of a cramped one).

Who wishes for more space in the kitchen? An easy way to do this is to extend your kitchen out to the living area. Take note, however, that this design is not very conducive for big families because there isn’t enough space to accommodate an actual dining table. Perhaps newlyweds or small families would find it more effective.

I’m pretty sure this is a pet-friendly space, especially if you have cats. Horizontal bars (refer to the green highlight) can be installed for your cats’ amusement. If there isn’t enough space for a sofa, you can create a built-in chair (refer to blue highlight). But such built-in chairs are only good for small families or couples.
