in fs point of view hor,

the ways to counter this if one insist on having the diningtable there(front section of the house)

1) block the whole window(corridor) with thick curtains(cant see thru) 24x7

2) dont invite anybody to your house, cos once they enter the main door, they see the diningtable straightaway. wealth is exposed.

for me, I prefer the 3rd choice, turn the diningarea into a study area and makan elsewhere.

b4 i cld tell hubby abt our dining table being too near the corridor windows which is bad for FS...he suggested changing the position of our dining table, daybed & his fish tank. We're thinking of shifting the dining table nearer to the kitchen entrance i.e dining table wld be on our left if we're standing at kitchen entrance. Not sure if its feasible.

wah... better check around for the wallpaper removal job...it's no easy job.

hopefully can get a contractor who does the removal of wallpaper + painting, cos if the wallpaper didnt remove properly....lots of patch up to be done leh. and normally the nipponpaint wont do the patch up if there is a lot.

mine 2k+ also , cannot compare with nipponpaint pricing when your walls are in TEROK condition.

cos the $2k+ includes all the patching up of holes, gaps, uneven surface,...etc

I have even check with nipponpaint directly and they confirm with me they WILL ONLY PATCH minor holes only. What their job is just PAINT, nothing else.
