A quick glance around the room and you’ll notice how well space and colours are planned in the bedroom.
Every corner of the room is maximised with custom carpentry solutions. Firstly, full height wardrobes are installed to the left of the specially built platform bed. Leather pull handles for the gleaming white doors lend a playful, modern look. Secondly, the elevated custom built tatami bed add visual dynamism for a sure wow-factor. With a raised platform bed large enough to fit a queen sized bed, the bed hides extra storage space beneath. Finally, the desk running parallel to the window sill ensures maximum utility without compromising the zen factor.
Similar to the bedroom with concealed doors at conjoined to the living room, the third bedroom is equally sophisticated. The custom built platform bed and wardrobe fully utilises the recess in the wall and the high ceilings in the HDB. Within the bed frame, trap doors store odds and ends. Also concealing clutter is the flip up mirror doubling up as a desk.
