3 Room HDB Flat - Seeking Living Room Advice

J G
20 August 2018

We just purchased a 3 room HDB and would love some ideas on how other people with similar layouts have organized their couch/tv and dining table within the living space. Most of the flats with this layout we have seen have the table backed up against the wall, with only space for two people to eat, which is not what we want. How to best optimize the space considering the various doorways here?


Appreciate the advice!

    yes in this plan, normal is sofa with center table then you end up with a smaller dining space. what happens if you move the coffee table to the side to get a bigger dining space? the idea doesn’t sound a good option but if you add some styling, your place would look fab. here’s a quick sketch of what I mean.

    Thats an option! We definitely want to figure out how we can work in at least a 4-6 person dining table and a sofa/TV area though. Will probably be quite cramped though

    4-6 is possible. just change the round table to rectangular or oval. the bench seat by the wall is required to save space, + 2 normal chairs and extra stools you can tuck under table when not used so you get 4-6

    have the sofa and dining table in the center. Dining table against the back of the sofa either the longer or shorter side. Can shift table to accomodate more people. Extendable table prefered.

    Push the table and sofa nearer to window to have more walking space. You can have a storage / shoe cabinet against the bomb shelter wall.
