We have some handy information about how much a 4-room HDB renovation costs below.

Interior Design Project Costs in Singapore

How do you estimate interior design costs now that you know how to cut costs on designing? The typical price range for interior design packages in Singapore for particular projects is as follows:

Type of Housing Estimated Cost
3-room BTO S$25,000 to S$45,000
4-room BTO  S$33,000 to S$58,000
5-room BTO  S$38,000 to S$65,000
3-room resale  S$30,000 to S$65,000
4-room resale S$38,000 to S$73,000
5-room resale S$50,000 to S$82,000
Condominium (according to size) S$40,000 to S$120,000

 

In Singapore, there are numerous different interior design projects. In contrast to certain IDs who offer to tailor the plan to each unit, others offer packages like HDB BTO or resale packages.

These packages often include project management, masonry, plumbing, ceiling & carpentry work, design consultations, space planning, and other ad hoc tasks like painting and cleaning. 

Prices vary depending on the package, which may include labor and material costs as well as the area of the house being restored. For instance, there are design packages for bathrooms or kitchens that cost between $6,000 and $20,000.

The devil, however, is in the details, and these restoration packages frequently include vital design and construction services. When you need further additions or work done on your house, they could be used by dishonest businesses to mark up prices highly. For those seeking a comprehensive interior design experience, such packages might not be the best option. 

Again, this differs from renovation contractor Singapore to design company, so be sure to do your homework by reading reviews and asking prior clients about the company you’ll be working with.

Is it a condo, HDB apartment, or landed home? Existing fittings are there any that  come with it already?

  • Type of materials

Expect to pay more if you like parquet flooring and countertops made of atas marble.

  • Age & condition

For a brand-new BTO and a decades-old resale apartment, the amount and type of restoration work will be considerably different.

  • How much work

Are you largely content with the situation as it is, or do you wish to start over and create the house of your dreams?

  • The contractor

Of course, charges vary amongst businesses.

A 4-room HDB apartment (90 sq m) can be renovated for anywhere between $5,000 and over $100,000. The projected price range for a four-room HDB BTO flat renovation ranges from $7,400 to $71,370, depending on the extent of the renovation and whether it is for a new BTO or a resale HDB.
