First, choose a theme for your living room design that you like. This theme can overflow to the dining area as well. Be it from minimalist to retro style, any theme is possible and can be adjusted to meet your objectives of the design.
Depending on your home, some 4-room HDB’s living room can be long or square in dimension. This will determine the types of furniture that would fit well in your living room when planning your 4-room HDB interior design. For longish space, a longer sofa might be more suitable compared to a deeper but shorter sofa for a square-shaped living room. In addition, consider designing the living room to be a central gathering area for your family. Opt for stylish yet comfortable sofas. Consider putting the furniture in a circular layout to facilitate communication if the space allows.
Dining tables which are extendable would be a smart option for occasions when you have guests over for dinner. Consider choosing a bench on one side of your dining table. This allows more seating without the need for more chairs which will generally take up more space. The dining table can also be used as a gathering table for weekend board games and activities. So choose good lighting and make the dining area as comfortable as possible.
If you do not wish to have the dining room as an extension of the living space, you can consider installing a small divider bar. When planning your 4-Room HDB Interior Design, consider adding some personal touches such as decorating the bar with photo frames or other decorations.
Children’s Bedroom Interior Design
When planning the bedroom interior designs of your 4-room HDB, it would be wise to have more foresight when planning the children’s bedroom. Bear in mind that kids will mature and their tastes will change. Choose furniture that is timeless would save you on having to change them few years down the road. For example, a toy car bed will suit a 5-7-year-old boy but by the time they reach teenage years, you will have to change the bed. You can also opt for wooden beds that are expandable. Some beds are designed to grow together with your child.
To instill some children design elements into the room, consider wall colours and decorations instead. You can even let your kids choose the colours for their walls or textiles. Filter through the colours that you do not mind having for the room and let your kids choose from there. This will give you some control over the overall design of the space while still showing some personality of your kid. While choosing furniture, also consider the usage.
For example, a toddler will need more floor space for games while a teen will require more desk space for work. You can consider a loft bed for the kids’ room. The area below the bed can be a play area for the kids and for teens, it can be an entertainment or a study area.
Study/ Home Office Interior Design
As a 4-room HDB flat has three bedrooms, when planning your 4-room HDB interior design, you can also consider converting one of the rooms to be the study or home office area if you have a room to spare. Furnish this room with bookshelves. The colour theme for this room can be neutral, white, light greys, and wooden accents will work well. Good lighting is also essential in this room as it is meant for work or study. There should be good natural lighting in the room. Consider having blinds or thin curtains as window treatments.
Besides ceiling lights, choose a few table lamps as task lights on the study table. Look for a few good study/office tables for the room. It is good for these tables to have their own storage spaces. Bookshelves can be shared in this room. Kids can have their books stored at the lower part of the shelves for easy access. Consider a bookcase with a rolling ladder for ease of access to upper shelves allowing you to maximize the use of the space in the room by installing floor to ceiling shelves.
