Hello, this is a log of my trips to JB in my hunt for sinks, fans and lights. Hope this guide can help you, whoever you are. Here is a sample map of one of my day trips. Visited: 11 NOV 2017 visit Tampoi Lighting Centre I found their range of lights quite huge, but nothing really impressive (it looks like u can get their items from taobao). They carry ceiling fans as well. Lady boss behind the counter is a bit weird though - doesn't like me asking prices for fans. Lots of people. They sell spare bulbs too. You can find philips downlights here. Starworld Opposite end of the same building from Tampoi. Smaller range than TLC, carries fans as well. Range of taps not impressive. Salesman tells me its due to lack of display space but told me that I can still order from catalogue. Also carries philips downlights. I think all lights shop have them. Pro field home and living (Across the road from TLC) I didn't get anything from them because their fittings are cheap-looking. Cheap plating and if you've bought a taobao tap before, you know exactly what I mean. And taobao taps get rusty very fast. Don't get from pro field, don't get from taobao either, unless you want to drink rust or wash your clothes in rust. They have some sinks, and the stainless steel ones look really industrial (not aesthetically pleasing) to me. 19 NOV 2017 visit HT lighting (permas jaya) Very friendly assistants. Pricing is standardised and good but I did not require lighting stuff so I didn't get anything. (I based the fair pricing on their bulb and fan prices) Aldeco Living It was a 2 storied shophouse, finding parking is difficult - but protip, make a left turn to go BEHIND the shophouses. Plenty of parking there. Selection there was typical, mainly bathroom/kitching fittings. Stainless steel racks, holders etc. Selection of stainless steel kitchen sinks upstairs. Very limited basins on display. Shop requires some sort of membership and all price tags have a member/non-member pricing. Fancy Lighting (CLOSED) 1 Lighting (beside ex-fancy lighting shop) Very antiquated designs, friendly shop owner. Did not buy anything. I however asked him where to get fans. He directed me to a shop across the road. It is a Chinese shop (XXX Eastern XXX). XXX Eastern XXX (electronics store across the bridge from 1 Lighting) Do not buy any electronics from that shop. I asked for the pricing for a few known fans and was quoted at least RM150 above the retail price. Shop owner was quick to point out that it is still cheaper than getting it in SG and was also quick to offer at RM100 discount. Interestingly, when I asked the owner where to get lights, I was directed back to 1 Lighting. Of course I pretended to not know better and left the place politely. KAC kitchen There was no prominent signboard - I had to confirm the shop by unit number. It is a showroom-shop, carrying lots of modern hobs and german/italian stainless steel kitchen sink. Friendly and genuine shop assistant. Jubin BMS Initially I thought I was lost and stumbled on a non-consumer industrial estate. I saw no entrances, no showrooms at Jubin (from the outside). I went to a nearby showroom and was fortunately redirected back to Jubin BMS for my needs. A dream haven for sinks, fittings, toilet bowls, bathtube, even floor tiles! Pricing is extremely good. Branded sinks can be had for slightly over 300RM. Unbranded toilet bowls begin at around the same price. Of course, if you're looking for high end they have it too. I saw sinks/toilets onwards of RM3000. They have electronic seat covers/bidet etc. Every sink, every toilet bowl had its own showcase. Let the pictures speak for themselves. Needless to say I got my items from here. As seen from the outside, you'd never imagine there's a giant consumer showroom inside. 24 NOV 2017 visit Yes Electrical Bought my fans from the shop. Having been to all the places above, I dare say that they are the best priced. They carry lights too. I bought some Philips tubes/lamps, and pricing is good. Feel free to facebook message them and ask them for a quote - that's what I did. Another plus point is that they are so near to the customs (Pelangi area). --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Not visited (please feel free to add in your reviews): Top Lamp Big Bath
Now that finally my house is fully renovated, I can share my reno experience with many newlywed couples out there. To begin with, my house in Punggol is really small and doesnt seem to tally with the price i paid! Lighting Shopping Like many folks, I went to Balestier Rd and Jalan Sultan to shop for my lightings, and o yes, even JB. JB has slightly cheaper lighting but limited designs. There is a whole array of lighting, ranging from traditional no-design lights to designer lightings in Balestier and JS. But I would say the prices there are really steep. Thankfully, my designer friend recommended me a local online shop selling very beautiful lights. But the only bad thing is that I dont get to see the physical product myself. However, I was assured by my designer friend that the online shop sells exactly the same products as some of the shops along Balestier and the quality is not bad. The prices they offered are really much cheaper than the shops in Balestier, about 50-300 bucks less for same lighting! But, the online shop does not have many choices on ceiling lights. In the end, I got 2 lightings from the online shop and 3 ceiling lights from the shop in JS. Service. The shop in JS is big. But I feel it lacks of quality service. The shop salesperson refused to test the lights for me on the spot but told me that I could bring in to change if the lighting cannot work. On the day of installation, my contractor found that one of the ballasts was not working. Luckily, my kind contractor changed the ballast for me FOC, otherwise, I have to carry it back to get it repaired and carry back again! On the other hand, the online shop person assured me the day prior to delivery that all my lightings are working via pictures on whatapps. The quality of the products is good and I am thankful that I didnt get chopped by the bloodsuckers in Balestier! ID Firms Many ID firms are expensive especially those that advertise a lot. Personally, I find that the interior design of a home has to be thoroughly discussed with the contractor/designer. I heard some generalise the scope of work and demand for more money after work. So please be kiasu and be more specific with the scope. I am fortunate to have my close friend as a designer and we have many discussions together. Through her, I was able to get cheaper renovation works as compared to other ID firms (apparently she has her own contractors!). She knows exactly what I want and I am very satisfied with the job. All the best, home owners!
