HDB Interior Design: What HDB Flats Are Best For You?

The Housing and Development Board of Singapore offers a variety of flats, fittingly called HDB flats, for homeowners across different income brackets. Its aim is to provide quality housing for everyone, whether one can afford a simple two-room flat or the bigger executive flat. If you are thinking of getting one for yourself, note the following features to expect from a unit with HDB Interior Design.

HDB Interior Design: Types Of HDB Flats Available

To date, the HDB offers six types of flats, from the smallest in area to the biggest: studio apartments, two-room, three-room, four-room, five-room, and executive flats. Studio apartments are designed to be cost-efficient (they come at 30-year leases) and convenient (they are located in areas near transportation networks and establishments, making commute very easy). They come in 35 and 45-square-metre variations.

The 2, 3, 4, and 5-room flats range from 45 square metres (two-room) to 110 square metres (five-room). HDB also provides varied layouts for each room type, so one has more choices at hand. The executive flat is at 130 square metres, and includes a study room.

HDB Interior Design: Renovations

If you’re thinking of renovating your HDB flats, hire only HDB-registered renovation contractors to do the work. The HDB has listed on its website its authorised contractors for you to choose from. Under the HDB renovation guidelines, hiring non-registered contractors to work on your HDB unit will result in penalties of $5,000.

Hiring these authorised firms will make sure you get renovation works that are up to par with the quality and security standards set forth by the HDB. These include avoiding installations that are not prescribed by the HDB, and getting the appropriate permission for special case projects. You may also find renovation packages being offered by these renovation contractors. These services are designed to give you a complete suite of renovation work for a price that is suitable to the size of your flat.
