House tour: A home filled with creative storage and furnishings

Homeowners Darius Tng and Veronica Chong decided to move from their executive flat in the east because they were very impressed with the Edgedale Plains showflat. They also loved the fact that it was within walking distance to the nearest train station. “There were only small units left when we came to view the development, but because we liked it very much, we decided to buy it anyway,” says Veronica.

It was no mean feat for a family of four to relocate from an approximately 1,400 sqf flat to a 950 sqf apartment. They took the opportunity to declutter. “I figured that if I had not used something for the past six years, I could probably do without it,” Veronica rationalises.

With just a rattan chair and a coffee table over a turf carpet, the balcony offers a cost-effective solution to creating a simple and cosy relaxation corner.
