4rm Hdb Resale Flat - Reno Ideas And Costs

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am newbie here and have a headache looking around for Interior Designer Firm and Contractor. Yesterday, I went down to Expo to check it out and find mostly are trying to close for deal rather than listening to what I want.

For now, I am looking around for those owners who has done up their places with the following theme and how much they spent on it. Please give me a review about your ID or Contractor who has done up your place. Thanks a million!

Theme

=====

1) Minimalist which is modern, bright and look spacious

House Type

========

1) 4rm HDB Resale Flat

2) Total sqm : 104

Appreciate if you can post some of your unit's photo for my reference.

Warmest Regards :)

Hi EmoBebe,

My place that I'll be renovating is also 104.

I'm at Yishun how about you?

Hi J|nG,

My place at Tampines. By the way, what theme you will be doing your new place? I am thinking of minimalist or a bit like resort style.

For my living room, I am planning white furnitures with grey sofa and white walls. Not sure what kinda theme this belongs to.

Kitchen am planning for walnut cabinet with black top and gray tiles. Am still thinking about the wall tiles.

Haha, almost the same idea but my main door a bit weird position. I may do a wall partition in between the main door to put my TV console because I need a wall behind my sofa and the main door position is neither at one corner. It is a bit to the centre. However, my kitchen I am planning to put solid black top and the rest cabinets are white glossy plus metal sink. The kitchen tiles I am thinking to use matt homogenous gray tiles - those anti slip type. Do you intend to put slunt a bit your flooring to the floor trap? I rekki at IMM ytd. One of the ID said they will put same level. Nowadays, no one wanna wash floor but they rather wanna mop floor only. But still kitchen it is best to wash once a while esp for spring cleaning even if you seldom cook. The slunting of flooring is upon request only else they will do same level.

I am wondering how much will it cost for my whole unit renovation because I prefer something minimum, easy to take care of and not bulky but yet got characteristic. A bit chim though. So far, no one give me the best ideas yet but I think I found one practical and honest ID. He gave me a lot of ideas and what to consider. I haven't receive his quotation yet. Cost is a concern to me though.

Have you get any quotation yet? Which company you hire? Any particular budget?

hmmm i like white glossy cabinet too but concern is cleanliness and if can last over the years. Think we have similar taste.

My living room also will do a partition cause I want to face the wall instead of the main gate for my sofa.

I am now getting quotations around and so far all quoted me ard 50 to 52k including carpentry work excluding my common room 02.

I think my whole house including furnitures, accessories would easily come up to 70k which is way too high!! hahaha

Mine is 103sqm and I also want Easy to take care and yet also unique. Not easy... My quote was initially 65k. After comparing with other contractor, it's only 45k for the one I chosen. Also reduces a few items like windows and doors.

Hi May,

Thanks for sharing. Can you show me your floor plan and briefly describe what are the things you do your new home? Have your contractor started work on your unit and how is the progress so far?

Hi J|ing,

I am allocating about 30k to do the renovation. Not so much of fund for this reno. A bit tight budget. That why I am here to explore the best deals and who should I award the job to. LOL! By the way, I am not doing the both toilets because this unit is under Home Improvement Program. So, I have to pay certain amount for the upgrading. Since the HDB will be upgrading the toilets, change the dustbin chute and wrought iron gate. I will leave it alone till later when I want to reno again. For the time being, I am still negotiating with HDB Officer whether can re-choose the colour of the tiles and wrought iron gates pattern because the previous owner already made their choices but it is not what i want in order to complement the whole unit theme.

Hi Kewlboi,

Thanks for sharing. I just read your blog. I haven't get my dates yet for first and second appointments. I am just looking around now...maybe I am a bit stress up and "kan chiong" cos this seems like a major project to me. LOL.... My main focus is to done up the Living room (TV Console, Half height bookshelves and Shoe Rack), Kitchen (Full height white cabinets maybe with solid black top) and MBR (Custom made wardrobe with a simple study area but i dunno whether can fit in.....just an idea). By the way, how much your black galaxy granite top cost?

By the way, I will be using back the existing Hob, Hood, Oven and Airconds because all still new. So, I guess I can save a bit on this area.

Wow! So many people live with you or you got many kids!!!! LOL!!! Anyway, you get which ID to do your home and what his/her name? I read a lot of postings here recently...headache...Just come across on one article mentioned that he went to 10 IDs!!!! I m not gonna do that...cos it will burnt me out!!! The most I will look for 5 IDs only and will be based on the recommendation here. If someone can allowed me to visit their home even better so that I can see the workmanship with my eyes. I would appreciate for that !!

Renovation really a big project to me but I feel excited at the same time because I can do whichever theme I want. Hopefully I will be able to meet the right ID to do my home soon!

Cheers:) EmoBebe
