10 Clever Floor Plan Ideas for Condo Spaces Under 1,500 sqft

  • Jul 8, 2019

Apartment living shouldn’t be boring or constrained by the limited square footage. We show you just how to do it in style with actual floor plans from new freehold condo Sky Everton, which is located at the highly coveted Everton Road. (More than 40% of the units have been sold already by the way, so if you’re looking to jump on the bandwagon, check out this hot city fringe property here.) From savvy solutions that maximise storage to nifty multipurpose designs that will make the most of floor estate, these floor plan ideas are perfect for spaces 1,500 square feet and under.

1-Bedroom (Type A1) Size: 463 sqft

1. We all know how mirrors work in small spaces: they are great for bouncing light around, allowing a small room to appear larger and they add more visual depth to a space. If you have a layout like this where the entrance of the bedroom sits within the living area, consider swapping out the conventional door with a mirrored one that lets your living room appear more voluminous.

Convert your apartment into a studio, with the original living room turned into a bedroom and the original bedroom turned into a walk-in wardrobe. Images courtesy of Summerhaus D'zign  

2-Bedroom (Type B1) Size: 646 sqft

3. In the original condominium layout, the kitchen is an open one. But if you tend to do heavy cooking, you might want to close it up with a sliding glass door that helps to contain the fumes and grease. Going glass still keep things feeling open and airy so don’t worry even with a small space like this. Images courtesy of Crescendo Interior & Lifestyle 4. Here’s one way to incorporate a study desk in a small bedroom. Do up a custom bed that features a workstation by the side. The best part? It can also double as a bedside table so you won’t need to find space for a separate one. Images courtesy of 19 Eighty Three  

2-Bedroom + Study (Type B5) Size: 657 sqft

5. This layout features a tiny study nook near the foyer. Make the most of the space by incorporating a flexible pegboard shelf, which allows you to customise your shelves at varying heights. In small kitchens, don’t be afraid of using a dark hue like the one we’ve shown here. They are great for making a big visual impact without taking up physical space. Do away with top cabinets to really open up a small cooking space. Images courtesy of Fuse Concept  

3-Bedroom (Type C1) Size: 915 sqft

6. Consider hacking away a part of your kitchen wall and replacing it with a glass panel. Not only will it work as a backsplash, it also serves to bring in more light into your kitchen. Image courtesy of Omni Design  

3-Bedroom + Study (Type C3) Size: 958 sqft

7. This full-height TV wall made up of thin strips of wood works as an eye-catching feature in the living room while dividing up the dining area with the living room to create cosier communal zones.

They are great for keeping clutter at bay with their copious storage, yet prevent the space from being cluttered up with too many storage pieces. Image courtesy of Weiken.com  

4-Bedroom (Type D1) Size: 1,346 sqft

9. Sure, you might get lesser storage and countertop space, but angling a bathroom vanity this way helps to visually open up a small bathroom. It also means you won’t be standing in the way of the doorway clearance. Image courtesy of Colourbox Interior 10. When you need more storage space in a small bedroom, make use of the space just in front of the windows. Consider a low storage cabinet that can double up as a study table as well.
