13 Darling Designs for The Verandah @ Matilda That You’ll Really Want to Have
Situated at Punggol, The Verandah @ Matilda is so named because it has an elevated verandah that provides sheltered connectivity between other residential blocks. The project is also big on community – there are collonaded verandahs that function as interaction zones and an open lawn that will serve as a venue for larger gatherings.
The project comprises just 481 units of 4- and 5-room premium flats, so it isn’t a very big development. While premium flats come with the compulsory floor finishes in certain parts of the home, there is still plenty of room to manoeuvre to achieve your dream design. Here are 13 ideas to get you started on your renovation journey:
We can’t get enough of daybeds in the living rooms because of how comfy they are for lounging. Choose to pair it with a sofa – or not! Set it next to the window, so it acts like an extended bay seat.
Design: The 80’s Studio
Need plenty of wardrobe space? This layout is for you. A part of the master bedroom was converted into a walk-in wardrobe and lined with full-height closets. An area was set aside for a classic vanity table, complete with a lightbulb-framed mirror.
Design: Arc Define
Galley kitchens can be just as charming as open kitchens too. Instead of filling it with counters on both sides, create a breakfast bar at one of them for a café-like setting. The “floating” design of the bar is visually lighter than cabinets, perfect for a small kitchen such as this.
Facing the Punggol reservoir or you just love the view from your room? Consider having your bed face the window. A custom-built corner bed frame is a good idea if you wish to save space.
Design: Rezt & Relax Interior
Here’s a layout idea for folks who have small bathrooms yet still want a bathtub. While it’s virtually impossible to have a freestanding tub in an HDB bathroom, you can still have a corner bathtub that fits the size of your original shower room. Prepare for an indulgent home spa session!
Design: Free Space Intent
If you need a room divider to create privacy, consider curtains rather than a door as an option as they are more economical. These lightweight, translucent ones evoke an airy and romantic feel, allowing for ventilation and light to pass through.
Design: White Corporate
This impressive bed frame extends all the way to the ceiling. It functions as a divider too, for privacy between the sleeping space and the workstation. Cove lights on top not only illuminate the room but help to accentuate the height of the structure.
Design: Dan’s Workshop
We have so much feels for this monochrome kitchen that is all ready to entertain. Setting your cooktop on the kitchen island cum bar counter is a great way to interact with your guests while you keep busy in the kitchen.
Design: Arte Living
If you spend lots of time in the living room, make it extra cosy by carving out a reading corner, complete with cushions and a gorgeous suspended reading lamp. Set it on top of a slightly raised platform to demarcate the space.
Straight lines are so yesterday. The TV feature wall is made up of thin wood planks that look fractured when viewed from a distance, creating a visual play on crooked lines. The TV is hidden behind white panelled doors so that it wouldn’t be obtrusive.
Instead of a large rug, use tiles as your “carpet”. You don’t have to be symmetrical about it – make it irregular so that it looks more organic and intentional.
Design: Edge Interior
Align the dining table with the end of your countertop so that it doesn’t block your entryway into the kitchen. This layout also helps to take up less walking room.
Design: Free Space Intent
Here’s a bedroom with tons of personality thanks to the geometric bedhead. Consider a custom-made headboard, instead of a conventional one you can buy off the shelf.
An integrated TV in your built-in wardrobe helps to save wall space and blend in the media unit with the rest of your design.
Design: Edge Interior
Dining rooms aren’t as prioritised in the spaces at home, particularly if you have a shortage of square footage. But if you really value having meals together in a more formal setting, consider turning one of your rooms into a dining area. House it inside a glass container, to give it a trendy “greenhouse glass” effect.
