Residence @ Lakeshore is a 3-bedroom apartment located besides Jurong Lake Garden, for a young family with 2 children. The design of the interior of this apartment is modern and minimalistic, with emphasis on natural material like stone and wood as the main material palette. LIVING-DINING-DRY KITCHEN The highlight of the apartment is the view to Jurong Lake Garden, which can be appreciated once you enter through the main door. The open plan that arranged the entrance foyer, dry-kitchen, dining and living room as a seamlessly continuous space allows the view of the Jurong Lake Garden from all these functional zones, making it the most important decision taken to the planning of the space. On one side of the space, a marble-clad wall (Black forest) is the feature - stretching continuously from the entrance foyer, through the dry-kitchen, dining space, living room to the large windows framing the Lake Garden at the end. The natural veins of the black forest marble arranged in a horizontal manner resembles the waves of water, complementing the feeling of living besides a lake. On the other side, a black tinted mirror wall enlarged the interior space through reflection and further extend the panoramic view of Lake Garden through the windows. GALLERY Extending beyond the mirror wall is the gallery leading into the private realms of the house – bedrooms and study room. Designed with wood finishing the walls and ceiling, the gallery unifies the entrances into the different rooms as one, transcending a mere distribution space – as a place for art collection display. ROOMS The gallery leads into a few rooms. The study room is designed as an extension of the gallery with only glass doors dividing the physical space. The master bedroom continues the use of wood in design expression, emphasising the natural material and minimalist style. The guest room is designed with an automatic Murphy Bed to suit the use of this room - a space that is multifunctional. The children room’s wall is painted like a beach front, pushing the imagination of the children’s mind with its’ association to the lake besides.
A dining room can be used as a formal space, reserved solely for feasting and entertaining. Singaporeans tend to spend more effort and money on their living room compared to the dining room, but that doesn't mean this space should be neglected. The dining table is the cornerstone of this room, and should therefore be your biggest investment. Dining chairs, decor and storage should then compliment this focal point.

How do I choose a dining table?

As you browse dining table options, consider your dining room size and layout; how many people you have to cater to; and how you intend to use the space. Your dining room should be able to seat all people in your household, and have room for additional guests. To ensure people have room to move, there should be no less than 1 metre from the dining table to the wall or any additional furniture item. Round tables tend to work best in tight spaces, while rectangular tables are ideal for long, narrow rooms. A square dining table, on the hand, can be a dramatic addition to any dining room, but only if you have the space. An extendable dining table, or one with a leaf, will allow you to accommodate varying numbers of guests. This is especially useful in a typically space-starved Singaporean apartment.

How do I choose dining chairs?

Look for dining chairs that share a common design element with your dining table. Curved or tapered legs, for example, can be mimicked in your chair design. Next, consider dimensions. The height of your dining chairs should allow at least 30 centimetres between the top of the seat and the top of the table. You can mix and match chairs to personalise the space, but this does require some finesse. Again, look for design elements that can be shared, such as colour, upholstery or material.

How do I decorate my dining room?

The dining room tends to be a minimal space, but you can still splash a little colour around through artwork, a rug, or a sideboard with curiosities on display. Lighting can also dramatically alter the mood of a room, creating drama, spurring romance or encouraging conversation. Use soft lighting with dimmer switches over the dining table, and opt for oversized pendants in large, open spaces to make the dining area more of a focal point. Finally, add some basic table settings – a tablecloth or runner, and a centrepiece – to cement the style of the room.

How do I create an open-plan dining room layout?

In, whether you live in a HDB, condo, or landed property, space is a valuable commodity.
