10 Condo Floor Plan Ideas that Combine Creature Comforts with Small-Space Living
Balancing between creature comforts and small-space living is no easy feat. But having luxury doesn’t always mean you have to sacrifice precious floor estate.
Using floor plans from Dunearn 386, a new 35-unit condominium located along Dunearn Road and just a short walking distance to the Botanic Gardens, we show you how you can master this delicate balance in your own home planning.
1-Bedroom (Type A-G or A)
Size: 452 sqft
1. If you always have your meals in front of the TV, consider doing away with a dedicated dining area to make your home feel less cramped.
For a small-space home bar solution, have a customised pull-out bar table built into your TV console. The sides of your console can also feature wine bottle slots for your collection.

2. Rotating TV stands are the perfect solution if you don’t want to invest in two separate televisions but still want to watch TV in two different rooms. This design is possible in this layout as the master bedroom sits just next to the living room.

2-Bedroom (Type B4)
Size: 646 sqft
3. This condo layout comes with a one-wall kitchen, which might not be enough if you are a frequent home cook or bake occasionally. Consider turning the original dining area into a dry kitchen instead, which provides more countertop space for food prep and additional storage. It can also double as an eating area. The wet kitchen is closed off to contain the cooking fumes and grease.

4. This long-ish balcony is the perfect setting for a long bar table, which can serve as an informal dining area or a spot for winding down in the evenings with a tipple or two.

2-Bedroom (Type B5-G or B5)
Size: 667 sqft
5. Multipurpose spaces might sometimes be necessary in a home with limited square footage. In this instance, a living room also functions as a study area and an exercise zone, the latter featuring mirror wall panels.

6. The original layout features an L-shaped kitchen, but it’s possible to turn it into a U-shaped layout by doing up an extra peninsula counter if you are in need of more counter space. Then, build a raised bar table on top of the peninsula to turn it into a dining zone.

4-Bedroom (Type C1-G or C1)
7. Combining the master bedroom with another bedroom gives you a massive area that lets you fit in a walk-in wardrobe. We like how the galley-style walk-in wardrobe can be closed off via a sliding door for more privacy.

8. Here’s another walk-in wardrobe design. Unlike the previous example, it isn’t combined with the master bedroom, but it also takes up the space of a common bedroom. Besides serving as a closet, it also features a bay window cosy corner, a platform for storage and lounging, and a study area.

5-Bedroom (Type D-G or D)
Size: 1,163 sqft
9. In this layout, the entrance of the kitchen faces the communal areas. If you don’t want to see the clutter and mess of your cooking space from your living room, consider doing up a hidden entrance like this one that can also work as a feature wall.

10. For the frequent hosts: we hacked away one of the bedrooms so that the living and dining area is one big open space. This open plan permits an additional dry kitchen, which functions as an eating area as well.
