Explicates ideas on Interior Design
How Much Space Do You Have?
Start with measuring the space at your disposal. It will dictate the size and type of bathtub that is best suited to your HDB bathroom. We’ve seen a number of HDB renovations feature decent-sized bathtubs.
Bathroom Interior Designs - Types of Bathtubs
One must strictly adhere to the prescribed weight regulations for HDB bathrooms featuring bathtubs.
150kg is the maximum permitted weight of a bathtub; this includes the weight of the bathtub as well as additional support structures. When in use, the total weight (weight of the structure, water and person) should not exceed 400 kg.
Materials such as fiberglass and acrylic tend to be lighter weight compared to bathtubs made of cast iron and marble.
If you are limited on floor space, there is a provision to extend the existing bathroom. It should not exceed 600mm and 0.6m² respectively. Also, the shower or the bathtub cannot be installed in the extended area. It can only be used as a dry space probably for a vanity cabinet, some shelves or a wash basin.
In a bigger HDB flat, featuring two bathrooms built adjacently, the washrooms can be combined into a single master suite bathroom subjected to HDB’s approval.
Do also take note that newly built HDB’s flats come with a 3-year restriction for the removal of wall and floor finishes in the bathroom.
Don’t dismiss the fantasy of unwinding in a hot bathtub while you sip on delicious red wine. Consult a bathroom designer Singapore to get the best value for your money on your bathroom renovation.
