14 Cutting Edge Design Ideas for Matilda Edge BTO
Bounded by Subang Lane, Punggol Way and the TPE, Matilda Edge is located at the edge of the Matilda district in Punggol. The development’s name is also inspired by the Matilda House, one of the oldest houses in Singapore (it’s now a clubhouse). Matilda Edge consists of nine blocks, with a total of 1,330 units made up of 2-, 3- and 4-room flats. There is also a block of rental flats (223A) at the corner of the development that is not available for sale to the public.
To help you along your renovation journey for your new home, we’ve shortlisted a few design ideas that are really trendy right now and linked them with the actual Matilda Edge’s floor plans from HDB. These ideas will hopefully inspire you to achieve your dream home.

The idea of the feature wall is that it’s supposed to stand out. So here’s a good way to make it more conspicuous: instead of having it flat, make it dimensional with a zigzag design. What we love about this feature wall are the additional nooks for display and the seamless storage cabinets that blend right in with the design.

Black-framed glass walls are ubiquitous, but we’re not sick of this look just yet because it’s really quite practical. It’s a great way to let the natural light in, and it helps to open up a small home that’s short on space.
Consider having your TV feature wall in an unconventional position – vertical rather than horizontal. It can serve to block your living spaces from the entrance of your home. In this layout, the sofa leans against the windows. Choose one that has a lower back so that your window view won’t be completely obstructed.

Instead of a bay seat, why not a bay sofa? You don’t have to put it all the way though. Mix things up with a seat on one end and a table top that can serve as either a vanity counter or a work desk on the other.

Yes, you can eke out a bathtub in your small BTO toilet. And all it takes is just the floor space of your shower! As the tub is small, make sure you put up glass walls as splash guards to keep your floors dry while you dip yourself in the tub.

Love a chalkboard wall in your kitchen but can’t afford to dedicate an entire wall to it? Have chalkboard cabinets instead! Jot down to-do lists, recipes or even inspiring quotes.

A rain shower is the ultimate bathroom luxury. But take luxury even further by enveloping your entire space in marble lookalike tiles.

Congratulations on having an awesome scene from your window. Not many of us have that luxury. If you do have an enviable view, take advantage of it by having your study table flushed against the window.
Mirrors are known to make small spaces look bigger. But that’s not all; they can look really classy while helping to reflect the light from your window, so the whole room will appear brighter.
Platform beds are all the rage, and most come with underneath storage which are perfect if you’re tight on the space. But this design takes the cake with a pull-out desk that can be stowed away when you don’t need it.

Jazz up a contemporary clean kitchen with a bit of shine! A backsplash is a great way to make a statement without costing an arm and a leg. In this design, glittery, silver penny tiles make the cooking zone look like a million bucks.

Hide away your TV and media units with a stunning sliding wall feature like this one.
Design: Starry Homestead
One of the most persistent interior trends in Singapore is combining the master bedroom with a common bedroom in order to accommodate a walk-in wardrobe. We love how this opens up the space in your sleeping quarters, as this is usually done by hacking the wall in between. The issue here is you can’t completely remove everything; the structural beam and column can’t be knocked down. But why go against it when you can make something out of it? Brush it with black paint to make a daring design statement.

The wall between the living room and another bedroom was knocked down in order to create a sense of spaciousness. Instead of concrete, media units like the large screen TV was used to segregate the communal spaces.
We really love how generous and functional the bay windows are here. They feature as lounging areas, reading nooks and display platforms.

A sliding shelf set atop a bay window is a great way to save floor space in a small study. You can use one side as an extra seat! Make sure they are see-through though, so you can still invite the view and light in.

Small kitchen? No problem. A breakfast table is made using a stow-away table from the kitchen cabinets. It’s great for quick meals or even as an extra prep table.
