10 Inspirational HDB Home Offices

The thing about the home office AKA the study room is that not everyone has it or will want it. Unlike the kitchen or the bathroom, it’s not a necessity. Rather it’s a nice-to-have space that you will only set aside room for if you have the square footage to spare. But if you work from home, the home office might be essential for you, which is why you should probably invest some thought into it. To inspire you, here are 10 study rooms and home offices in HDB flats that are just buzzing hubs of creativity and energy, spaces certain to inspire your next big idea, or just for you to get some work done.


1. Match your furniture.

This frills-free Scandinavian study room features bright pops of yellow amidst an all-white palette. The room emits cheeriness with an understated elegance, but it’s not without function. Extra storage is found underneath the bay seat, while the floating desk provides leg room while providing a visual lightness to the space.


2. Monochromatic Minimalism

Natural light reaches the inside of this monochromatic home office through the use of clear glass walls. The black frames draw design parallels with the lines in the room – you see it in the bookshelves, the window blinds and the wire-framed furniture. It’s minimalistic, yet full of panache.


3. Dark and Handsome

Think black accents and clad your home office with rich, dark wood surfaces that are textured with coarse grains if you want a home office that is for the suit and tie executive. It exudes a very professional look, yet unlike the strait-laced workplaces in a lot of traditional offices, the wood adds a warm feel.


4. Art Attack

Fan blades, the high gloss study table and bay seat are finished in high-gloss red, which are contrasted against the matte-red surfaces of the ceiling beam and the wall so that the room isn’t overpowered with too much sheen. It’s an audacious colour for a study room, but it will definitely invigorate the occupant. Furnishings were chosen to add a retro pop art effect.


5. Barrel of Fun

What is most eye-catching in this work station is the cleverly-designed wall shelf, custom made to spell the word “book” and done with a raw, cement screed finish. The splodges of colours here, burgundy and yellow, bring a buzzing energy to this space.


6.For Leisure

If you tend to spend time perusing novels than work in your study room, consider transforming the space into a reading room instead. An indented bookshelf with spotlights is a great way to showcase your tomes. Do away with the desk and have a comfortable lounger. Then complete the picture with an overhanging light source, perfect for reading your afternoons away.


7. Wood Play

There is warmth in this whitewashed study room, thanks to the addition of light wood surfaces. The wood elements offer up a colour contrast, without being too conflicting so the room doesn’t feel like it’s washed out and one-dimensional.


8. Pastel Perfection

Pops of pastels have been on trend for a long while now. And we can’t think of a reason why not. Sweet pastels add a soothing atmosphere, creating a conducive environment for work. Match them with light woods for a Swede-chic look if you’re all for the Scandi theme.


9. Two in One

WHAT WE SAY: Never let styles limit you. Ever heard of eclectic design? It’s the mixing of different themes and eras together to create something that is entirely you.

Here’s another his-and-her home office that ensures both parties get their own space within the same room. Accessories keep both areas distinct to reflect the different needs and personalities of the couple, but the industrial style shelving helps to tie in the room together.


10. As clear as day

Nothing says chic and modern like a clear glass study table. It’s a perfect choice if you have a small room and want to visually expand the size of the space, as it prevents the area from looking like it’s packed with furniture. An open bookshelf that tapers off near the top also gives the illusion of a taller room.
