8 Innovative Condo Floor Plan Ideas to Maximise Your Apartment

  • Sep 2, 2019

For most condos in Singapore, a small square footage can be a big problem. But luxury living does come with a trade-off. The key then is to learn how to maximise your space to make the most of it. Using floor plans from new condo View at Kismis—this idyllic new development off a quaint and quiet location at Upper Bukit Timah—we show you how you can do just that, without cramping up your style.

1. Do away with a formal dining area

Layout: 2-Bedroom Premium (Type B2) Size: 603 sqft Design: Space Atelier Formal dining areas tend to take up quite a bit of space. If you just need a spot to eat in, do away with a formal space and consider this small-space solution. Have the dining table join the end of the kitchen counter, but build it at table height rather than counter height for more comfortable eating.

2. Go for a built-in study

Layout: 2-Bedroom Premium (Type B2) Size: 603 sqft Design: The Interior Lab When you need to include a study table in a small bedroom, always go with built-ins, which can be customised to maximise every square inch. The desk shares the same space as the foot of the bed, but a section is set aside for the chair. Wall-mounted cupboards that reach all the way to the ceiling provide ample storage.

3. You can’t go wrong with a mirror wall

Layout: 2-Bedroom + Guest (Type C8) Size: 710 sqft Design: Aart Boxx Interior It’s the oldest trick in the book: get a mirror wall to visually enlarge your space. It also helps to brighten up dark spaces. Minimise the joint lines between the mirror panels as much as you can for a more seamless visual.

4. Double up your guest room

Layout: 2-Bedroom + Guest (Type C8) Size: 710 sqft Design: Para.graph This layout features an extra guest room, but it would be a waste of space if you reserve it just for guests. Create a multipurpose space instead such as doubling the room as a study or a playroom for the kids. Use a Murphy bed for the guests, so that it can be stowed away when not in use.

5. Include a serving window in your kitchen

Layout: 3-Bedroom (Type D1/D1-G) Size: 807 sqft Design: Design Story To open up a small cooking space like the one in this layout, consider going with a serving window in your kitchen. It’s a great way to feel less walled-in, while also welcoming better ventilation and making mealtimes more convenient.

6. Don’t forget bathroom storage

3-Bedroom (Type D1/D1-G) Size: 807 sqft Design: Linear Space Concepts Most homeowners fail to realise how important storage is in the bathroom. And designing them in during the renovation process will mean you won’t need to rely on off-the-rack storage which can clutter up an already small bathroom. An open ledge that stretches across the sink to the back of the toilet is great for stowing away towels and other bathroom amenities, by making use of a space that is often overlooked.

7. You can still entertain even in a small space

Layout: 5-Bedroom (Type G1/G1-G) Size: 1,270 sqft Design: Fineline Design Having an entertaining-friendly environment is still possible even if you have limited room. An open-concept communal space—living room, dining and kitchen—allows your guests to mingle around freely and accommodates larger groups. Consider doing up a home bar area by the dining for relaxing after-meal tipples.

8. Live luxuriously with an open concept en-suite

Layout: 5-Bedroom (Type G1/G1-G) Size: 1,270 sqft Design: The Safe Haven Interior Design Open-plan bathrooms are the epitome of luxurious living (think 5* hotels!), but they also have another advantage of making your bathroom feel a little less cramped. Place your wardrobe just outside the bathroom to ease the transition between both zones.
