Congratulations on the purchase of your new resale HDB! Unlike with new flats (BTOs, SBFs, etc.), resale HDBs are public housing that have been around for some time and have likely been lived in before. To that end, HDB resale interior design usually comprises of two parts: demolishing any existing structures that you may not want to keep, and the interior design and building of any new designs that you do want to keep around.
Older HDBs - often in mature estates - were built on different standards. On top of that, years of living (sometimes decades) would have worn away many aspects of the house. A comprehensive set of clearing, cleaning, and decorating is generally recommended for any new resale flat, as well as a solid sweep of the infrastructure of the house to ensure that you have minimal problems. One of the differences, for instance, is that resale flats built before 1996 may not have irremovable shelters incorporated into the house itself, but instead have a small store room.
Other than the above concerns, the interior design of a resale HDB would be roughly the same as pretty much any other HDB or apartment unit, and certainly follow the same principles! You will want to consider the specific style in which you’d like your apartment to be built, and in Singapore’s small home spaces you will find yourself leveraging on common themes - building on vertical space to make your homes seem airier, using lighter shades of paints as well as mirrors for more light reflection, and potentially using multi-purpose furniture to optimise your space as much as possible. HDB resale interior design to that end is very similar to anywhere else.
We at Posh Living can help ensure that your HDB resale interior design goes smoothly! We are familiar with many variations in older resale flats and the potential challenges that may come with them - as such, that puts us in a good space to be able to advise our clients on what they need to ensure that they have their dream homes. We are also great at working with a wide variety of interior design styles based on your individual preferences. Contact us today for a discussion on what you are looking for and what you may need!
