HDB project in West of Singapore [with photos]

We’ll be the first to hold up our hands and admit that our bamboo flooring is not the cheapest in the market. There are more affordable options available, such as laminate flooring or ceramic tiles. However the old adage holds true: you do get what you pay for.

If you are looking for a high-quality, attractive long strip wooden flooring product that is also friendly to the environment, then frankly, you only have one choice. Bamboo flooring is the only candidate that ticks all the right boxes.

Unfortunately, some clients have told us that they reluctantly choose parquet or laminate flooring, purely out of budgetary constraints. That is why most of our projects are in the luxury residential or commercial sectors (companies usually have substantial construction budgets, so choosing bamboo flooring hardly impacts their costs).

But every once in a while, we are lucky to meet clients who are committed to the environmental cause and truly understand the principle behind Star Bamboo. They see and cherish the value that we deliver.

Here, we present a HDB project from the West of Singapore. Not only did they choose bamboo flooring, they even opted for the high-end water-based polyurethane site finish coating. Being eco-friendly also means providing a healthy environment for the family.

They visited our showroom time and again, to look and feel the bamboo samples on display. Faced with such sincerity, we just had to give them a fantastic price. :)


Lots of natural light in the Play Zone.

The client has creatively restructured a 3-room HDB flat into a Play Zone and a Bed Room. With sunlight streaming across the floor in the Play Zone, this is the ideal place for the client to practise her yoga and relax after a hard day’s work. You can see the matt finish on the Natural Horizontal bamboo flooring.


The wardrobe is actually a wall.

Don’t be deceived by appearances, this wardrobe is actually a partition between the 2 rooms. If they ever decide to combine the rooms into one, it will be a relatively straight-forward task.


Taking a closer look at the bamboo flooring.

The Natural Horizontal bamboo flooring is the lighter of our range. The bamboo knot patterns are highly distinctive, and sure to leave a deep impression on your guests. This provides a nice constrast with our previous project, which used Carbonised Vertical instead.


This is the Bed room, with a wooden partition discreetly screening the washroom in the corner.

This is the Bed room, where the light colour of the Natural bamboo makes for a soothing atmosphere. It also helps to create an expansive feel, which is especially suited for smaller projects.

If you like what you see, just get in touch with us and we’ll try our best to make it happen for you!

    Color tolerance is a little serious

    We adjusted the contrast of the photos to show the grain patterns more clearly. :-)

    That’s why we always recommend customers to visit us at the showroom.
