Applying for a BTO flat? You’ll be glad to know that new BTO flats come with sleek and modern HDB fittings. These fittings are part of HDB’s continuous efforts to provide well-designed, quality homes that meet residents’ evolving tastes and needs, helping you minimise waste and save on renovation cost!
Durable and Functional Main Door and Gate
The first flat fitting you’d notice would be the modern-looking steel gate before entering your home. For greater convenience, the gate features an interior thumb-turn knob, which means you no longer need a key to open the gate from the inside when it is locked.
HDB will also provide a scratch-resistant and durable laminated timber main door.
HDB fittings such as the top-hung windows between the kitchen and service yard will make it easier for you to clean them. With the new design, you can even build your kitchen cabinets right up to the windows for more storage space!
Adding to the more modern aesthetic, the threshold between the kitchen and service yard is now designed with a 20mm drop instead of a ramp. This gives a more modern look and layout to the flat while ensuring that it remains accessible for residents in wheelchairs.
Ceramic floor and wall tiles have made way for larger glazed porcelain tiles, which are more resistant to wear and tear, and come in a wide range of designs. Together with the open concept kitchen, these HDB fittings gives a more uniform look across the entire flat.
Better Bathroom Fittings
Larger glazed porcelain tiles will also be seen in the bathrooms, as will the 20mm drop at the threshold between the bathroom and living room.
In addition, the bathrooms of your new BTO flat come with good quality and water-efficient sanitary fittings. This includes a range of dual-flush low capacity water closets of contemporary designs. HDB fittings such as top-hung windows and durable concealed floor traps add to the modern look.
TL;DR? Here’s a summary of the quality HDB fittings you will find in your new BTO flat:
