Your BTO bathroom may come in a standard package, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it unique. The following BTO bathrooms should know; from changing up the layout to using unconventional materials, they show that you don’t have to stick to the usual when it comes to your BTO bathroom renovation.
1. Combine two bathrooms
To go against the grain, the homeowners revamped their 3-room BTO into a single bedroom apartment. The original bathrooms were combined as a result, since there was no need for two. This created a large open en-suite, with the extra space providing lots of storage and counter room.

2. Vanity sink outside
The designer of this 2-room flexi BTO halved the bathroom, dividing the toilet facilities from the shower area while placing the sink separately outside the two zones. Reminiscent of older HDB flats, this layout provided more bathroom space and better flexibility of use. Plus, it created a direct walkway from the bedroom to the kitchen.

3. Green ceiling
If certain standard features feel like an eyesore, take a leaf from this BTO bathroom. Artificial grass line the original pipe concealment ventilation panels, in a bid to disguise them while also making things feel less sterile in this monochrome space.

4. Makeup table replace shower
With no need for an extra shower in the common bathroom, the owners of this BTO flat turned the space into a powder room instead. A makeup table and storage shelves make for a more multipurpose room.

5. Water-resistant wallpaper
You don’t always need to use tiles to line the walls of your BTO bathroom. In order to cut down on cleaning grout, the bathroom walls were lined with water-resistant wallpaper instead of tiles. It’s a daring move, but it makes for a stunning spectacle.

6. Half-painted wall
If wallpaper is not your thing, plastering over the original wall tiles and then covering it with paint of your choice is another chic (and possibly cheaper) way of changing things up in a conventional BTO bathroom.
7. Open concept
For the adventurous, consider going with an open concept bathroom like this, which replaced the original doors with sliding glass ones. It’s a great and easy way to invite a luxurious hotel suite feel to your space.

8. Sunken bath
Nothing says self-care like a sunken bath that lets you soak away the worries of the day. Unlike off-the-rack tubs, you can have it blend in with the design in the rest of your bathroom depending on the tiles you choose.
9. Step-up bathtub
If dropping in is not for you, consider stepping up. This lavish bathtub sits in a separate step-up chamber in this BTO bathroom, so you’ll definitely be able to soak in privacy. But the design also helps to contain the splashes within that space.

10. Pebbled flooring
Decking out your floor with pebbles is all your need to recreate that relaxing Balinese resort feel in your BTO bathroom. It may be quite a nightmare to clean over time, but it sure beats having a boring bathroom.
