If you’re designing your BTO flat for just yourself and your partner, it’s going to be much easier to stick to minimalist interior design than if you were to renovate for a whole family.

Take this couple’s resale HDB flat, for instance; the owners went so far as to forgo a sofa and streamlined the living room with matching armchairs instead.

You can take minimalism to a whole new level by clearing your house of almost anything and carefully curating what you choose to keep.
