There's something about the Muji aesthetic that triggers a sort of high. Although minimalist and bare, there's a sense of calmness and understated luxury that's incredibly satisfying.

One homeowner in Singapore has created this Muji effect right at home!

Keep reading to check out the Muji-style HDB flat! 

Designed by Key Concept, this Serangoon HDB flat has a minimalist design with a white and light wood colour scheme much like Muji stores.

The living/dining area has a bright and spacious look, with just essential furniture in neutral colours and houseplants adding warmth.

By having a low back sofa and benches, the room looks bigger and brighter as there are no high back furniture blocking the light or your line of sight.

Going handle-free and sticking to just two colours makes the kitchen look sleek and sophisticated.

Open shelving can give the kitchen and airy and spacious look, but not everyone wants the cleaning duties that comes with it. This kitchen has a small section with open shelving which gives the homeowners a place to add a personal touch without making it too high maintenance.

The study has a built-in bench that doubles as storage and seating. There's also a built-in shelf with glass doors displaying the homeowner's collection of Dragon Ball Z figures.

In the bedroom, the platform makes the space feel so cosy and comes with drawers for storage. A narrow study desk with drawers fits it perfectly in front of the bed.

A clever design element is the bedroom door which looks like it's part of the wardrobe when closed.

This HDB flat also has a walk-in closet with a vanity, converted from one of the bedrooms.

A simple but effective trick to making a room look bigger is to place a floor-to-ceiling mirror on one of the walls like in this walk-in wardrobe.

It visually doubles the space and reflects sunlight, giving the illusion of a grand, expansive room.

If you don't have the luxury of using a room just for storing clothes, check out four other ways to squeeze a walk-in wardrobe in a small HDB flat.

Although the bathroom is short on space, keeping a simple colour palette and having a frameless glass partition for the shower keeps it from feeling cramped.

The entrance is also worth adding to your inspiration board. The industrial-style matte black gate lets in plenty of light to brighten the entryway and makes it look more spacious that it actually is.
