  1. Hi, I haven't dropped by in awhile, but glad to see that your reno is coming along very nicely! Love how the wardrobe looks especially! So sleek and classy
  2. I am also having headaches about my toilet's grouting. I had some gaps, and my ID came by to patch it up with cement powder (mixed with water). But the cement powder is white, while the rest of my grout was beige. So yeah... different grout colour now. You mentioned the living room tile had cardboard stain. Was it on the grout or the tile itself?
  3. Waaaaah. Nice bold choice of colors. Actually I really like Puritan Black leh! Although maybe it looks slightly different irl. But in the pics I like it! Bold of you to paint the ceiling different colours too, but I think it'll turn out nicely. I stuck to white as usual because I wanted to keep the space looking bigger but downside is that it looks plainer lor. Ebony blue is also v nice!!
  4. Thanks to your gf! Nope the sofa is a 2 seater, can seat 2 quite comfortably. It's 1.21m It's a overgrown toy poodle, lol! It's more like a mini poodle instead. I like the green too although at first I was afraid it would be too jarring cos I don't have that green anywhere else. Haha you'll get there, maybe in a month or two? not too far away!
  5. Since the uneven color is because the tiler filled up the gaps with cement but not grouting powder, can't he do another touch up by using the grouting powder? Instead of re-grouting the whole floor. Or do they need to mix the cement and the powder before touching up the gaps? Very lazy of them if they just applied cement alone the first time around -_- Grout shield goes on top of the grout (cement/powder). It acts like a sealant. Pros is that it doesn't look like cement, doesn't turn dark when it's wet, hence looks cleaner.
  6. The past few weeks have been spent organizing the place and assembling furniture. I think we're 98% done. I have a small study area in the MBR. Glad that my MBR is on the larger side (for a 3 room layout) and I have space for a small desk! A month after moving in, I finally got a sofa! Came across a nice seafoam green one by accident and thought it adds colour to my white/grey/wood place. Dressed it up with cushions from TB. Dog not included! Got some decals from TB, just for fun. I think they're quite cute... When I have the time, I would like to share what were my best reno decisions and what were my least fav decisions in my context, which is a 3 room flat that's limited on space. Hopefully I get around to that
  7. I love the hexagon cabinets too, a very unique touch. Some space will def be wasted, but make the hexagons not too big and I think it's a good tradeoff! It's not my place to say this but... if you're paying for the flat and the reno, you really should do what you like. That's just my opinion... I know everyone has different circumstances. Kompacplus has been used by many of my friends and they don't have any complaints at all. I'm using quartz and I feel like it does stain a little. But can be wiped off with CIF and a cloth (so far). I think 55 inch is good enough for 3 room flat. I'm living in 3 room too.
  8. I completely understand how you feel and the emotional/physical exhaustion that you must be going through. Towards the end of reno, you get so tired of it and you just want it to end, even overlooking some imperfect areas because you don't want things to drag on forever. My toilet grouting is a big issue too. I am looking to regrout and apply a layer of grout shield on it. If your grout color being uneven is the only concern, you can consider grout shield as well. Can choose from many colors and it supposedly keeps the grout looking clean. Hang in there... you'll get there eventually. Bit by bit.
  9. @Diluted shipped to my address via DHL @Blade07 i chose the one for 200mm wide cabinet. Works well, especially once the heavy condiments are in
  10. Thank you! My total reno cost was around $20k, excluding all furniture and appliances.
  11. Yeah! Definitely worth it to go across especially if you're buying a few fans. Maybe 3 or more?
  12. I tried looking for some tables that are 120cm extendable but wasn't able to find any in that walnut color. Maybe you can check out Comfort Furniture if you haven't? I remember they had some 120cm extendable tables. But nothing smaller than 120cm white isn't too bad I think, the IKEA table comes with acrylic lacquer and it feels quite resistant to stains and water (to me) Hahaha I see Mike mentioned a lot on HWZ (not the tb thread). Lazada shipping had no problems for me, but I only shipped smaller items with them
  13. Hehe thanks, your comments made me happy. Yeah my dining table is from IKEA. Walnut is dark wood yeah? The brown-black may suit your place more, I think. All my purchases from tb were either via ezbuy or lazada direct shipping from tb. Big items were via ezbuy prime. I know that forwader you mentioned, Mike right? Should be fine, lots of people have used them don't worry!
  14. Thanks for the compliments! Vento fino 2 fan is really strong for the kitchen, but it is really quite low (bad for tall people), which can be dangerous if it's fixed in a high traffic area and the family members are tall. You can probably touch it if you raise your arms. I got it for around SGD $200 or less in msia, excluding GST on SG side
  15. Your MBR looks super cosy esp now with the mattress and blinds in. Quite unusual that the curtains vendor would get upset that you guys approached others for quote though. That's completely normal behavior. And the living room blinds do an awesome job of hiding the aircon trunking! Almost can pretend its not there anymore, hahaha
