My unit is a 4-room flat of 92sqm (including AC ledge). It's considered really small but oh wells, this is what you get for a 4-room flat nowadays, and thankfully me and wife aren't that big size either. The bombshelter is located in the kitchen that in turn, gives us more space in the LR, which is exactly what we wanted. Can host mahjong session in the LR Initial Floor Plan Our Basic Requirements 1. Spacious MBR and LR 2. Walk-in wardrobe 3. Work area 4. Long mirror cabinet in MBR toilet 5. High Resilient Vinyl Flooring for LR and all BRs 6. Overlay of floor and wall tiles in MBR toilet 7. Bottom cabinet only for hob side, top and bottom cabinet on the opposite side 8. Scandinavian style, with maybe a little pinch of Industrial feel Contractors/IDs Selection 1. Chun Xiang Renovation Pte Ltd I shall skip the scouting process as I'm too lazy to recall each and every detail of them. In summary, I've approached a couple of IDs and Main Cons, but none of them fits my budget with the requirements, except for Edmund (in short I'll just call him E here) from CX Reno. Actually he was introduced to me by a close friend, and I've personally went down to their new house to witness their fine carpentry's workmanship. One thing good about them is that they're already a registered reno contractors with HDB and it will make the approval process of the reno smoother and faster. New Floor Plan with my Idea 1. Sealing up BR2 actual door, and hacking a door linking BR2 with MBR. Making BR2 into a walk-in wardrobe and work area. 2. Changing the direction of MBR door to have better accessibility into walk-in wardrobe.

Hello everybody! I have been secretly reading this since I have applied for my SBF and now that my key collection is happening soon, I'm really nervous about it! I am intending to handle the design and reno on my own by engaging a contractor my friend intro to me but I am still kinda lost about the procedures and stuff like that. Hoping to get some inputs and ideas and also to document this journey down since I realised that this is the best part about getting a place of my own and I will miss this phase once it's over! For a start, here's my floor plan! Do feel free to interact fellow tbloggers
Hi all, I've recently just booked my new 4-rm SBF flat and I'll be getting my keys soon. My flat does not comes with flooring for living room and 3 bedrooms. Only HDB default floor and wall tiles in kitchen and 2 toilets. I will be going for resilient vinyl flooring all living room and 3 BRs. Kitchen and toilet floor and wall I'm going for homogeneous tiles. I will be appealing for HDB cement screeding in order for me to lay the vinyl flooring. I will also plan to hack down partial of the kitchen wall and 1st bedroom wall. Can any laojiaos here provide me a checklist of the renovation process I should check or receive from renovation contractors? (not going for ID) Some people say flooring goes first, electricity goes first, wetwork/masonry works goes first, plumbing or aircon piping etc. But I am not too sure for my case. The renovation should involves the following, if I'm not wrong: 1) hacking of walls, 2) vinyl flooring installation / homo tiles overlaying, 3) aircon piping, 4) aluminium/glass work for hacked walls, 5) kitchen table top, 6) blinds, 7) electricity/lightings, 8) carpentry (kitchen cupboards, wardrobes etc) 9) painting (walls), 10) plumbing I'm not too sure which one should comes before/after each. Please feel free to add in to the checklist. For all your advices! Thanks.
