Boutique hotel inspired renovation ideas

Have a staycation lined up for you and your loved one this Valentine’s Day? It’s probably at a boutique hotel in the heart of Singapore right?

Well we love boutique hotels, they’re the epitome of well-designed small spaces! So in honour of this love-filled holiday, we thought we do a staycation special and showcase some great design ideas from some popular boutique hotels:

The floating bed

1) A floating bed frees up space under your bed. If you have no need for storage, make use of an LED light to highlight the clean, clutter free area. It’ll make any small room look spacious!

Plenty of white space

2) Want to utilise the impressive light-reflecting properties of white paint to help your room appear bigger? Here’s an example on how to use it the right way! The 2D cut-out furnishings, cleverly highlighted with a soft glow, keep the monochrome palette from becoming boring.

3) If your room is ridiculously small, improvise, and turn key pieces of furniture into multi-purpose features. This bed frame’s front extends upwards and doubles as a vanity on one side and has a television mounted onto the other side. Of course if you’d prefer not to have a television in your room, you can always turn it into bookshelves!

Embedded lights

4) A clunky chandelier would visually shrink your space, so instead, do what this hotel did. Embed lights into the wall in the shape of a chandelier. You get a quirky lighting feature and save space!

Raised platform flooring

5) Too much carpet can be a little daunting, but the idea is still in the right place. Raising part of your floor in your bedroom or living room can serve several purposes. First, it allows you to demarcate an area in an open-concept space, second, portions of the platform can be used for storage and third, the different heights in the floor serves as decorationg as well, especially if there are lights highlighting the space.

Open-concept bathroom

6) This idea is definitely not for everybody, but for those who love long soaks in the tub, consider this idea. This hotel placed a large concrete “tray” in the middle of the room with two soaking tubs in the centre, facing a rotatoble television. Perfect for open concept spaces or loft apartments like this one!
