5a Resale Flat Renovation

Recommended Posts

like what e other bro says, every little things counts & cost. before u know it, already exceeded your budget of $20k. Im in e ID line, judgin from e work that need to be done, it's really abit tight budget. Maybe u can consider doing up bit by bit instead of doing it all at a time, who knows u &your husband might have diff concepts along e process. Nevertheless, Congrats on your new home! :yamseng:

Thanks for the advice.... haiz.... we are trying to cut down on certain things so that it can fit into the budget.....

Hello! White with faint green as design is a bit of a challenge. My kitchen tiles are all seagreen... Original colour is supposed to be light greyish blue tile but end up HDB ran out of stock for the colour. So I didn't quite like the colour then when we first got our keys to our place :( But we reckoned since white is a 'universal' colour just like black colour, easy to match with just anything. So we got white kitchen cabinets with black solid surface. Even fridge & washing machine are in white colour too. Now the green colour is not that glaring 'cos of the white combi.

So you can consider using a neutral colour like white to blend in, for bold colours, have to see what your tile really looks like. Can show pics of the tiles?

HiHi,

I am terrible with colours and so if tiles are ceramics, white with faint green as design, what colours go well with it?

Is also okay too. =) Grey is not that bad, just adds a little bit of ethnic touch to a chili red kitchen. :notti:

Just remember that if some of the things are beyond your budget, just cut to the minimum since you can do up your place slowly. You got time on your side, so no rush to do everything together also. As long as those that have more piority like the kitchen or whatever needs to be done or fixed, Just do the major works first. the least minor works can be done slowly. This means you can save more money for the rest that can be done slowly & you won't exceed your budget for the major works instead.

haha.... now got better idea on what to do for renovation le..... hope that it wont be too expensive
