  1. Hi all, I was fond of looking for interior designs and renovation then came across in this website. Started reading some renovation recommendations and I just want to also share my renovation experience with this ID and they have their own contractor as well. I just want to help those who are looking for ID / contractors to transform their house into a home. My friend recommended them and scheduled for an appointment to discuss our reno. They were very open to our suggestions of what kind of design concept we want and they were also great at suggesting alternative concept to make the designs improve more but with a cheaper budget. They were very good at explaining the details and how they update the schedule of the reno. They were very accommodating and all the small issues were settled. Overall, my house turned to be a relaxing and cozy home! Below are the photos of my house. I’m happy to share their contact with you.
  2. Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum. Anyway, I would just like to share my experience with my contractor. I happen to like the concept of a plain and simple design for my house and apparently my contractor was able to do it and I like the outcome very much. It is a resale flat of more than 30 years by the way. Here are some pictures which I have taken in my house.

  6. Hi All, I have been looking for quote to do simple reno on my 5rm BTO. This is a quote i recently obtained. Being a noob, I would appreciate your comments on the quote below.. Many thanks in advance..
  7. My first experience in choosing IDs so far: I uploaded my floor plan on Renotalk website and requested for quotations. Initially, I was flooded with many calls from several IDs. Almost all of them AGAIN! asked me to send the floor plan to them, even though I uploaded the floor plan on the website in the first place. Also all the IDs wanted to meet me and see the site. I asked all the IDs to drop me an email with their first quote based on the floor plan and my initial requirements for me to consider before I can meet them up. If not, I need to spend next many weeks just to meet them all! Surprisingly, most of the IDs never send me any email after the call. Only a handful few sent me emails some with standard package offers inspite of me mentioning what I wanted to do! Few of them sent me intro email and after that no response! I was impressed by Vincent Blog (http://www.vincentinteriorblog.com/) on his knowledge and advice to new home owners like me. I reached out to Vincent and sent him my floor plan and requested for quotations. (similar to Renotalk). I was recommended to 2 IDs by Vincent. Unfortunately AGAIN, no response by both the recommended IDs, inspite of me waiting for over 3 weeks for them to respond! Looks like every ID in this business is very busy with loads of projects! Appears to me that ID business is a good business to be in! In the next part, I will write about my experience in shortlisting the ID’s – thanks to the Renotalk friends feedback and some personal contacts.

  10. I read in a magazine article that homeowners should budget about S$100 per square foot (psf) for renovation costs for HDB resale flats. For a 3-room flat of about 688 sq ft, this would mean a total of S$68,800! Now, I'm aware that magazines tend to jack up the price a little, as a lot of items used are designer items, but this differs a lot from what I've been reading in various forums online. I tend to hear quotes of as low as S$30,000, and S$50,000 would be considered very expensive by most. So, let me hear some advice from you, as a homeowner who is currently selecting Interior Designers - what's a real fair cost for a full HDB 3-room resale renovation, assuming we want our current (very) outdated house to be revamped totally, with no major changes to the existing floorplan? Thanks. PS, if you have any pics of how you did your 3 room bathroom, that would be great too.
  11. As a above For both toilet is a 4 rm HDB just change of floor tite water basin toilet boil heater 5k is it enough? do intro me if u had a contractor which is good and within my budget Thanks
  12. Hi guys, I just received a quote from an ID and the carpentry price seems high compared to the other quotes shared here. Does anyone have any input? Please note that this is for a landed house, so i’m not sure if the price difference is because of that? Just wondering what your opinions would be. This is the exact quote (only wrote the carpentry bits i’m wondering about here, and not the other lighting and hacking stuff etc) To design & construct est.

  13. We are getting the keys to our new 4-room DBSS soon. We have quotes from several IDs through Renotalk. Spoke to them and finally decided on one. They quoted us about S$21K for false ceiling works, curtain pelmets, TV feature wall & console, shoes cabinet, a mirrored dining wall, wall papers, painting and the general cleaning and haulage fees. Is S$21K for these a reasonable rate for a 4-room DBSS? Many thanks in advance for any constructive feedback.

  17. Hi, I will be a new house owner soon, expecting my keys within 6 months in Punggol With the house in sight, think its time that I start my renovation planning. Reading all the articles here, its going to take a minimum of 4 months to identify a good contractor. First, my preference is a direct contractor rather than an ID. ID's prices seem to be very high, adds complication to the process. Can make a mess. I'll be really thankful if you could PM me the contacts of some good "Direct" contractors. Sure will give you a gift if I take your advice. Right now, my budget is around 25K. Within this, what I expect is; New house is a premium BTO, so; 1. Flooring is already done 2. Kitchen has full tiles and Sink 3. Bathroom has full tiles and amenities My renovation requirement; 1. Do a nice kitchen setup with cabinets, door, etc 2. Master bedroom, full length wardrobe 3. Bedroom 1 and Bedroom 2, full length wardrobe 4. Hall - TV area, Shoe rack, false ceiling 5. Full length cabinet, study area for Study room 6. Cabinets in Toilets 7. Do a nice laundry setup in service area with cabinet 8. Aluminum grill for all windows 9. Simple wire grill for balcony 10 Plastering, Painting, Cleaning, Polishing 11. Additional carpentry work where required to do a nice house In addition, I will do the following, if the contractor is reasonable in pricing 1. Sofa with coffee table 2. Master bed 3. beds in 2 rooms 4. Dining table The most important is QUALITY. Looking for a Simplistic and Functional design. NO TRICKS, NO GIMMIKS. Like a contractor who says, white as white and black as black. I can share my floor plan when required. Thanks Jerry
