789 sqft Condo in Shah Alam Becomes Popular Airbnb Homestay

789 sqft condo in Shah Alam is turned into an inviting homestay by a Recommend.my interior designer.

Vista Alam is a serviced apartment located in Section 14, Shah Alam.

Upon taking vacant possession, its owner intended to rent out the property for short-stays.

With that in mind, he hired Valarie from Bonnieblue Furniture & Interiors to design a look that was cosy and practical at the same time.

The work included colour and space planning, carpentry for built-in kitchen cabinets, lighting and fans, and sourcing of furniture, accessories and artwork.

 

Open Plan Apartment

At 789 sqft, the apartment consists of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a small kitchenette, and open dining and living area.

Upon entering the front door, visitors are greeted by the L-shaped island kitchenette, and the dining and living area that stretches to the far end of the unit.

Furnishing the living area

The original all-white walls were repainted in light blue, and matched with the light green curtains.

The designer also sourced for a beige 3+2 seater sofa set, arranged in an L-shape. This furniture arrangement allowed a clear view of the entire apartment from the living area.

“The unit came with white walls and white tiled floors which felt very cold and unwelcoming. So immediately I knew that to counter that was to use colours and comfortable furnishings,” – Valarie, Bonnieblue Furniture and Interiors.

A chest of drawers was added that functioned as both a TV console and storage space; a space-saving move for small apartments.

Creating a small dining area

An oval table with four chairs was added to create a small dining area. This also provided a low separation between the living and kitchen area, without blocking foot traffic.

A large oval pendant task light just above the dining table was added to give a more modern touch to the area.

Adding more storage to the kitchen

The original kitchen only came with the base cabinets arranged in an L-shape, creating a small island counter as the visitor entered the unit.

The designer then added a wall cabinet to provide more storage space.

In addition, a floor-to-ceiling glass panel was also added to function as a divider and backsplash.
