The Healthy Minimalist Home Tour (65 sqm / 700 sqf) | Singapore 3-Room HDB


Hi, welcome to our home, which is also our office, and our playground, and we’re really excited to show you our humble
space. We moved into this 700 square foot (65sqm) space earlier this year, and upon
stepping in, I think the most common comment that we get is that it’s pretty
empty. But it’s definitely by design as we’ve been trying to be more conscious
about the stuff that we own. When conceptualizing, having the space be conducive to living an active, healthy lifestyle, was kind of a defining feature
of the home. And we only 700 square foot (65sqm) to work with, we decided to make the
living room a flexible space. On most days, this is how the living room looks
like, with just a couple of bean bags for lounging, a bare-bones media rack, a
utility shelf where we house our everyday carry, and some plants, more
plants, and an open space for us to work out in. We forgoed the conventional couch and TV combination, instead we use a portable projector when we are in the
mood for some movies, and this is also where Glo occasionally relax and listen to some music. When we are expecting guests, we’ll set up our dining
table and chairs. The table has easily detachable legs, so we can keep it in our
storage when not in use. When it’s just the two of us, we’ll have our meals over at
the bar counter instead, which brings us to our open kitchen. Yes, this is probably the space I spend the most time in, as we prepare our own meals almost every day.
Our friends at Komorebi has done a really impressive job with
the design and execution of the kitchen, as it usually gets the most attention and
praise from our guests. We also have a peg board system, which is very versatile
and takes up very little space. There’s not much to say about the laundry area, but
here is where we have the habit of separating our trash and our recyclables.
Moving on to the other rooms, we decided to use the smaller room for our bedroom as we don’t spend a lot of time in here other than for sleeping. The low oak bed
provides additional storage space, and we are totally in love with the looks and
functionality of it. Our wardrobe, I think, could be considered pretty minimalist. I think
it’s quite common to have more clothes than necessary and because we’re trying
to be more conscious about what we buy, limited wardrobe space kind of forces us
to be more mindful about the clothes that we purchase. Over in the next room is our office. What stands out is probably that we don’t have regular height desks and chairs. Yes, we actually prefer sitting on the floor instead. For us, this is
basically a variation of the standing desk. We all know that sitting in one
position for too long isn’t good for our health, and this setup allows us to adopt multiple different positions when working at our desks. We’ll probably make a future video talking more about why we choose to sit on the floor. Over at the
side we have some storage, this is where we keep our work related items, like our cameras and lenses. And that just about concludes this quick tour of a home. Hope you enjoyed the tour if you have any questions, just leave them in the comment section and we’ll do our best to help. Thanks for watching! Hello! You’ve come to the end of the

  1. I'm sorry but where's the bathroom? It's a beautiful home but without a bathroom…. 🙂

  2. lol 65 sqm is "SMALL"? hahahaa ok… not in my world.

  3. Why do you choose not to have any art or photography in your home? This is the part of minimalist living I don’t understand.

  4. Does anyone know where one can find floor chairs in Scandinavia? They look so comfortable.

  5. Beautiful living and loving!

  6. nice… but how if u have a kid in future? hmm… but this video make the whole environment feel so much comfortable and relaxing

  7. Im about to move to my new apartment soon and this vid certainly helping me out to be purely minimal, yet practical. Thanks!

  8. It is boring

  9. Hey there people living as minimalists. This lifestyle seems very attractive to me, because clutter makes me anxious. I tried to reduce my items many times before but i always got tired and fed up doing it and after a few months i was searching for something i knew i have, i needed that item suddenly. Than realized that i threw it away last time i decided to downscale my life. Any tips for me? Basically i have big piles of official papers, that i should organize, but they are so many, it makes me anxious thinking about organizing them. also same with clothing and everything else. Plus my husband doesnt really support the idea of getting rid of things we may use. And it seems like that all the things we have, even though its way too many, we end up using them all. really, all. how to get started and find a balance?

  10. Really amazing…. Loved the idea of peg board

  11. I'm in uk and this video looked good. Then I heard your accents!!! yeah 🇸🇬. I was quite shocked how commercial Singapore has become.

  12. Hey anytime you want to house swap holiday in the UK I have a very big house!

  13. This channel is headed unto something great!! Cant wait!!

  14. Yes guys you are cute and the house is really sweet

  15. The gymnastics rings brought me to play this vid. I just moved my new HDB too and wondering how can I setup my rings without compromising the overall look of the place. You definitely demonstrate this idea is feasible. Also, great design!

  16. I love your home !

  17. I liked everything. Minimaliatic yet functionall.
    I was just today thinking about how to hang the rings to the ceiling. Did you made some mounts as DIY or you bought some? Would love to see how you solved it 🤔🙂

  18. Absolutely lovely your living space. I´m wondering where to buy the low desks with chairs? I find them beautiful.

  19. Nice. This is real minimalism. Functional, simple.

  20. Can I know where did your buy your bed? Looks simple yet functional!

  21. Love your working area!!

  22. 😍👌🏻👍🏻

  23. This is too minimal for me, I like industrial/contemporaty furnishings, but comfort is priority. We are retired and need comfort (recliner, sofa 50 inch flat screen tv) more clothes but not excess , etc.

  24. This s luxury for me

  25. I love everything about it except the part 0:59 😅 need a darkening curtain to be able to watch anything during daytime with projector

  26. i love it!

  27. I love your home. It is so inviting and calm(and you are such a cute couple).

  28. Who here finds that they tend to throw out more food at home? I keep wondering why my wife buys these things when they go out of date and have to be thrown out? I’m thinking of what it would be like to have a minimalist kitchen and buying our meals out would you save money and time?

  29. very inspiring, thanks for sharing 🙂

  30. I like it

  31. That's a really lovely home. 😊

  32. LOVE!

  33. You're a perfect couple! Healthy, minimalistic, perfectly set up (that doesn't force you to sit unnaturally) prioritising the right things for your wellbeing, like natural light, gymnastics rings instead of a large space and excessive materialism to impress others with. If I lived in Singapore, this is exactly how I'd make my space! Congrats on the great space!

  34. Love the office set up! Glad to see that I’m not the only one who prefers to work on the floor, where did you get the floor chairs and table from?

  35. I've always wanted to try out acrobatics in my home

  36. I don't minimalist, I see and empty place with people living for them self. So much selfishness

  37. I notice you don't use a kitchen hood. Do you mind sharing your reasoning for foregoing it? And if it has been more difficult doing clean up, especially since you cook often. Great video 🙂

  38. Omg I love this concept! Great video!

  39. This is horrible not to mention ridiculous.

  40. Love your concept! I would be getting my BTO soon. Mind sharing the approximate renovation cost? Thanks!

  41. Beautiful apartment, I love it but… no bathroom?

  42. I need Persian, Afghan carpet. It looks too uncomfortable walking on naked floor with barefoots to me hh

  43. I prefer a healthy maximalist home.

  44. May I know where did you purchase the dining table with detachable leg? And the two tables that are in your work room. Thanks 🙂

  45. 햇나요?

  46. I don’t like it at all…

  47. there is a difference between minimalism and a complete lack of furniture. This isn't minimalism, its just empty and impersonal.

  48. What a ghost home. I would go crazy if have to live there 😂

  49. i would literally kill myself if i lived in such a place

  50. I just hit the like & subscribe button. x

  51. And the front lever?

  52. Hi from Singapore (amongst all the comments from all over the world)

  53. The bean bags!! That's the idea I have been needing for my space! I just moved to 600 sq ft with my young son. Decided to ditch the couch and hang a jungle gym system from the ceiling instead, so we are on the same track! Thank you for putting your home life on the internet for all of us to see! People have lots of opinions on your personal choices they choose to share, and I love your lighthearted replies! Thanks again for your example and inspiration.

  54. Definitely found the ultimate inspiration for my future home here 😍 I’m so glad you made this channel and I found it.

  55. The most important part is living with a like-minded partner.

  56. This … this I can do. It’s perfect.

  57. love love love!! ❤️

  58. I really like the video and the appartment! What I would change is I would put up Christmass lights simply because they give me so much joy!

  59. After being seated in that position at my PC, my spine would start to implode until I look like a pancake under the table….

  60. An excellent example of my own view… The wisdom of simplicity and The luxury of efficiency. Well done.

  61. 1:13 THAT'S IS A BIG NO NO

  62. Inadvertently the saddest shit I've seen this week. How do people live this way?

  63. Great chanel 🙂 keep it up

  64. You guys are amazing.

  65. I kind of want to see how your bathroom is set up! It feels a little incomplete since we saw the rest of the house. No hate, I’m just curious and would love another house tour that included the bathroom ☺️

  66. Good morning and thank you for sharing! Peaceful and inspiring. What is the wardrobe drawers model and brand, please? Thank you!

  67. Гостей они явно не ждут

  68. Your home is beautiful! Thank you for the inspiration 🙂

  69. Wahaw !!

  70. Thinking about living minimally, I wonder about art. There is no art on your walls. My walls are covered with art and I make a lot of art all the time. How can an artist live minimally?

  71. Omg!! Fellow sporean here! This looks awesome btw!

  72. Very happy for you because you're both minimalists👌🌹💖

  73. GRADO LABS <3

  74. May I know how did you connect the plumbing from the kitchen sink to the drain, which I know is pretty far away? What are the cons of the distance?

  75. Where is your table, peg board and bed frame from? Love the video btw

  76. Your floor is so nice, i think it made everything looks better. I love being simple and minimal as well.

  77. your office is so gorgeous! it looks like such a good space for productivity

  78. Your humble home is super nice 😁it'll definitely be one of my inspirations when I start designing my little bungalow house.

  79. Living there for long would prepare you for the mental asylum, which in turn would be necessary if you were to live there for too long. What a natural transition! Well thought!

  80. How much u spend on renovation? Is this bro?

  81. Definite subscribe from me!! Love this so much, my wife and I are in the process of buying a small apartment and this is so inspiring thank you 😆

  82. sitting and working on floor sounds intriguing ,please explain this further ,

  83. 0:33 They are so minimalists they don't even have food

  84. I was thinking about that projector/bean bag combo a few weeks ago, how funny I found this, looks lovely, great aesthetic sense, love those rings as well!

  85. Wonderful video! Im an aspiring minimalist and im thinking of getting a 3rm flat too! Urs is an inspiration for my future home:)

  86. How much did it all cost?

  87. The hardest part is not designing a small interior, is to find a personne ready to live in ( especially girlfriend, french girlfriend, parisian girlfriend … )

  88. Super cool

  89. Sweet couple 😀❤️✌🏽 and beautiful home🌱🥦thanks for sharing 😉

  90. Hey what brand are those chairs? I love them (as well as the design of the entire house) 🙂

  92. The only way I could live like this is to declutter my husband!

  93. How is that healthy?

  94. NICE

  95. Hey. Very nice video! I specifically like your pull-up ring setup. I have been looking into this solution myself but have not been able to find anchors that will hold my weight securely from the ceiling like this. Do you have a link to the anchors you use in the ceiling? Also, what material is your ceiling made from?

  96. Hi, where did you buy the table with detachable legs?

  97. you didn't show us the storage where you store your dining table and 4 chairs. what else is in there?

  98. I'm going to make my home look like that! Wow! 2 thumbs up!
