Turn your flat from drab to fab with these great renovation ideas.

Just like birds building their nests stick by stick, homeowners put in a lot of heart and effort to transform bare and empty houses into homes to call their own.

Through Qanvast, which offers ideas on interior design, renovation and furnishing, some homes end up being an inspiration to others – giving them ideas to imagine and create their own dream homes.

As homeowners get more discerning and tasteful, it’s no surprise the battle for the most popular homes is getting fiercer, with the best of the best in the running this year.

Without further ado, here are the most popular homes categorised by Singapore’s favourite interior styles – Scandinavian, minimalist, eclectic, industrial and contemporary.
