  2. Singapore, a city that has a hot and sultry weather like most of the Asian countries because of its nearness to the equator. The high levels of humidity of the place provide a sticky feeling for all the people residing here. Residents of the area need to give a special treatment to the interior spaces of their homes to get some relief from the heat generated by the sun. The curtains of the home are pivotal in deciding the impact of the outside weather to the home. Selection of the right material, style and length play an important role in determining the temperature of the room and also addresses the need for home improvement. The great thing about curtains is that it is one of the viable choices for home decoration and that too at little expense. Still, the selection of the right kind of curtains can be daunting for the people of Singapore for dealing with the problem of heat. While considering interior design Singapore, whether in homes, offices or lodges, there are constraining reasons to make a wise choice of drapes for enhancing the mood of the place along with maintaining the room temperature. So, if you are looking for the ideas on how to select curtains of your house in Singapore, read the article to get some tips on implementation of the same in your home for making your job easier. Functionality - The chief motive for incorporating curtains to the home decoration theme is to add the element of privacy to the living area. It is important to maintain the functionality of the same by adding light-hued cotton drapes for offering a relaxed look to the area along with maintaining the privacy of the room.Color - The curtains being the focal point of the concerned area, the color scheme must not be loud. As dark colors absorb more of the heat and keep, the space insulated, it makes the place sultry and hot to halt. You should take into account the room's color scheme to be able to select material that combine with the walls of the room. In case you used dark colored curtains in a room with light colored walls as an example, it will be a serious error.Therefore, you must try to decrease the color difference by using gauzy fabrics or light colored. In the scenario where you've small windows, it will be best to use self-prints or smaller prints rather than utilizing bigger prints that are astounding.Length - The longer drapes adds imperial, classy and conventional touch to the room's interior, while, shorter length curtains offer casual and tranquil expression to the room's interior. The room's physiognomy depends upon the choice of the owner. Though full-length curtains are recommended for a bedroom as drawing them during the daytime makes the room appear dark and is perfect for creating a mood for a person to sleep during the daytime.The use or intent of the place is one more variable to take into account when selecting the top window drapes for your dwelling. It's an unwritten rule that window drapes ought to be a manifestation of the feeling of a room. Thus, for each room in the house the curtains ought not to be same. In other words, the one used in the kitchen cannot be the same as those in the bedroom or the sitting area. An excellent example is using those with a sensational appearance in the dining room while using curtains for a vivid and brilliant appearance for the children's bedroom. Day and Night curtains - Considering day and night curtains in a place like Singapore is essential as both of these serve two different purposes. While day curtains are thin and light colored, it allows the penetration of the natural light by offering a delicate impression to the room. Night curtains, on the other hand, are made of thick material that restricts the outside light from entering the area and also secures the privacy of the room. Curtains are the most frequent form of window treatment that function to give seclusion during the day and at nighttime. Adding decorative poles, tracks, rails, and other curtain accessories enhance the entire scenario of the place and brightens up the spirits of the house. **************************************************** Hi every one, my name is Kenny, I am a new house owner, and I am also work in the renovation line.

  3. In Singapore, buying a home is a big deal, and every home buyer must have enough savings to hit the sale. Therefore, buying a condo becomes one of the difficult deals because condos are highly priced assets. Undoubtedly, from the floors to the tiles, everything about the Singapore condos is stupefying, but there is always a particular thing that the owners want to renovate according to their personal taste and requirement. Besides, condos are perfect for an average family size that comes with every kind of modern amenities, but the urge to design it in a way that suits the style of the owner is always more convincing. Besides new curtains and furniture, there are other steps that are critical to the selection of the splendid interior design: 1.Most of us never inspect our new homes after getting its final possession. Though, the developer of condominiums offer well-designed house, but it is necessary to check if there are some loopholes associated with the flooring, wiring or tiles implementation in any part of the house. Check for issues like wall cracking, water leakage and tiles breakage. Address the need for repair to the contractor as soon as you explore the problem areas of the house.( I will write a post specially on how to check the defect for new house later) 2.Overall planning is important before taking any action. Outlining the plan helps to stay within one’s budget and follow all the steps properly. 3.Condos are quite spacious. Therefore, it should be decorated adequately for making optimum utilization of the space. It is also essential for avoiding any cluttered impression in the living space. The space must be wisely used that fresh up the mood of the house. 4.Though, you get access to fully-furnished floors, when you buy a condo for yourself, but still it can be refurbished by adding a new floor plan to the house. Considering timber or tile floor of good quality is an excellent way to offering a changed look to the personality of the house. You can pick your favorite stuf from the market for creating an alluring effect. 5.The curtains of the living area must complement the color of the walls. For example, If the walls are white in color, the owner can go for blue, green, maroon, pink or yellow colored curtains for creating an alluring effect to the place. 6.Always aim for a furniture having multiple uses. You can buy a bed with a hidden box in it for accommodating several other things inside it. A table with a three to four cases can be used for several purposes. It will not only save you money but, will also initiate optimum utilization of the entire space along with leaving more space for free movement. 7.If you feel the need for extra cabinets, it can be installed in the walls of the room. Wooden cabinets installed in the walls looks neat and offer scope for proper space management. 8.Make use of Stylish lamps, LED bulbs and tube lights for enlightening the spirits of your home. 9.Get your homes painted with your favorite colors. Every room should have a different paint scheme. While the kids room color scheme must be bright and lively, the living rooms of the older members of the house can be painted in light, pastel colors. Even the implementation of the feature wall at either the main wall of the room or behind the Television wall will look excellent. 10.Application of Feng-Shui items like wind chime, laughing Buddha for decoration is a magnificent idea for keeping the positivity of the home intact. 11.Implementation of the designer mirrors and glasses in the different areas of the home creates a wonderful optical illusion and look amazingly stylish. 12.The space of the balcony can be well-utilized by adding a decking or a hanging swing to it. 13.Last, but not the least, if the interior decoration is not your cup of tea, seek an expert advice for the same as buying an expensive property like a condo in Singapore is a one time investment and must be well-decorated for creating that million-dollar effect. The Great home design is the essence of a beautiful home. The design of your condo must be such that refreshes your mind as soon as you enter it after a hectic day in your business. For more ideas on Interior design Singapore, contact a local interior designer who can help you make different design choices at affordable prices. **************************************************** Hi every one, my name is Kenny, I am a new house owner, and I am also work in the renovation line.

  4. Basically, the procedure of renovation is following bellows steps: 1,design and planing, 2, hacking and dismantle 3, electrical cable and water pipe laying. 4 carpenter work, 5 tiles work, 6, plaster, skim coat or painting, 7,water heater installation, 8, false ceiling for kitchen bathroom, 9, cabinet work, 10, hood /oven installation,11 door installation, 12, floor installation(timber floor, decking) 13, wall paper, 14, switch, socket installation,,15, lighting installation, 16, sanitary ware installation, 17, curtain channel installation.18, cleaning, 19, furniture , 20 home appliance ,21, home decoration (1), overall planning The major difference between animal and human being is that, we know planning. Before we do anything for renovating your house, we should have a clear planning, what subject will my home look? What should we do from step 1 to last step? The most important thing we need to do in this planning stage is that, make a correct and detail measurement for our house. Including: A) the total area we need to renovated, especially for the tiles area, wall area, floor area. B)the detail dimension from wall to wall, this is very important for you layout of the furniture and decoration. By the way, before you start renovation, don’t forget to apply the renovation permit in management office if you are stay in condo. And you may need to pay some renovation deposit. 2) Hacking When we start to renovate our house, the first and also the most noise step is to dismantle the old structure, which including hacking of cabinet, tiles, floor,wall and windows/door frame. But pls remember one very important point, DO NOT HACK ANY COLUMN OR BEARING WALL, unless you are guide under a professional engineer. In Singapore, hacking job is very expensive, sometime hacking may be even more expensive than the new one, and if you are DIYer, remember to clear your construction rubbish to appointed company, otherwise, you will probably get fine if you just throw to outside rubbish bin. (3) Re-arranging water and electricity cable Before laying the water pipe and electricity cable, the main hacking job should be basically completed, and we should make one more important measurement, which is kitchen cabinet area. We need to find out: 1, Find out if the socket for hood is suitable or not, will it affect the installation of hood. 2, Find out if the water pipe outlet/nozzle is suitable for future kitchen sink and water tap installation. Before re-arranging water pipe, we’d better finish water proofing for the bathroom, as for the kitchen area, I will also suggest to do water proofing, but if your budget not allow, just forget about the kitchen area water proofing. Some owner will thinking, in this stage, the major material should be delivered , such as tiles, timber floor parquet. But actually, in my opinion, we should try to avoid arranging big items coming in at this stage, as it will be very troublesome if we keep shifting this material inside the house,as we might need to do some small area hacking to conceal the pipe and cable. (4) Carpentry Works Carpenter, tiles layer and oil painting is “three brothers” of construction, the basic order is: Carpenter, brick/tiles layer and oil painting l. the basic logic is that – who dirty who first. If we need to do partition (such as adding one more study room in living room), we need to consider if it is necessary to conceal the power cable inside the partition. (5) Tiles work If our manpower is enough, we will arrange tile layer coming in before carpentry start, actually there is no much conflict between carpentry and tiles job. There are 2 key points need to be careful: 1, the installation for the tile or granite near windows or door area. We need to finish the windows frame first before we can do the nearby tiles or granite, similar as door frame area. After that, we can use silicon to seal up the gaps. 2, the installation of floor trap. Floor trap is first material to show in renovation for the hardware material, as it need to do together with the tiles laying. So, if owner is buy all the material by himself, do not forget to prepare the floor trap first.. After tile laying job finished, we can obtain a more accurate measurement figure for the kitchen cabinet. (6) Painting Job Now is painting guy’s show time. Basically, we may need to do at least 3 coat for wall painting and 1 coat for the customize furniture. For the wall painting, the most expensive one is the first coat( basic coat), but if you intend to do wall paper rather than painting, you may just need the basic coat of wall painting. 2nd and 3rd coat are not necessary for wall paper. After finished of this stage, many owners will be happy as thinking that it is almost finish for the renovation. But in fact, it is only one third of the whole procedure. The most important part is the “installation step.” (7) water heater installation Once the wall and floor finish, we can arrange water heater delivery and installation. The water heater installation is normally done before false ceiling. The gas water heater type is now become more popular, normally it is installed in the service yard or aircon ledge. As for the electrical water heater type normally it is installed inside the bathroom or conceal above of the false ceiling. (8) False ceiling at kitchen or bathroom After water heater installation completed , the next step is the false ceiling. The basic procedure is ceiling grid, ceiling board and touch up and painting. In this stage, all the kitchen ceiling light and the ventilation fan should be prepared, and also lighting points confirmed. (9) Kitchen cabinet installation After false ceiling finish, we can arrange kitchen cabinet installation. And also kitchen sink ,water tap gas hob connection. (10)Hood Try to arrange the same day for hood and kitchen cabinet installation, they will be easier for coordination. (11) wooden door installation After Kitchen cabinet finished, we can arrange door installation, and also ironmongery. The frame should be already finished during the previous stage. Now is the door panel installation. (12) Timber floor installation On the second day of wooden door installation, we can start to install the timber floor, we need to pay attention for the below points: 1 prior to installation, it is better to arrange the parquet supplier to come down for inspection, to confirm the floor condition is acceptable, is it flat enough? Or dry enough? 2, prior to installation, we need to keep all floor clean and maintain the floor dry. (13) wallpapering work One the 2nd day of timber floor installation, we may start to arrange wall paper. Before that, we need to clean everything on wall. (14) switch socket installation In toilet, all sockets and switches must be waterproof. The light switch at the entrance, it is recommended to use fluorescent switch. In my opinion, try to install more sockets as possible, nowadays, more and more home electrical equipment coming out every few months, it will be very troublesome to add socket, especially for conceal type in future. (15)Lighting installation When coming to this stage, we finally can say good bye to industry light, feeling good , right? (16)Sanitary ware installation Toilet bowl, basin, hook and water tap all will be finished in this stage. (17) Curtain rail installation Curtain rail installation is a milestone for renovation work, it means, we finally can take a rest after so busy month. (18)Final cleaning Before doing final cleaning, do not arrange any home appliance or curtains, try to maintain a clean condition, and then arrange final cleaning (19) Furniture After final cleaning, we can arrange furniture coming in. As for the time to buy furniture, in my opinion, we do not need to buy too early, we only can buy the furniture after we get the detail dimension, which is after electricity and water pipe laying job finished (20) home appliances By this time, home appliance can start to comes in, ready to stay! (21)Home decoration Finally finished! How is it? Enjoy your new house! **************************************************** Hi every one, my name is Kenny, I am a new house owner, and I am also work in the renovation line.
