Which Would You Suggest I Take For My Kitchen Reno?

Recommended Posts

Hi people, I am new here. I had recently bought a 5-rm bto from sales of balanced flat. My husband and i are looking to do our floor tiling and kitchen first, then slowly the rest of the house in phases due to financial constrains. The 1st contractor we meet quoted us $12670 only for tiles(for the whole house including rooms and kitchen) and kitchen cabinet(10ft top only), aluminium sliding door, hob/stove area concrete with tiles support(the super old fashioned one!) but after some bargaining it was brought down to $11k. Then I suggested to look for another option and through a very close contact i found someone who can do my kitchen with full 20Ft plus cabinet and a Corian solid surface top all for $11500 (the price was given due to my close contact). But my husband has no confident in solid surface top!! If you were in this situation which one wld you go for?

The 2nd option, $11500.

  • Cheaper.
  • From a close contact.

If your hubby has no confident in solid surface top, maybe can ask if the material can be changed to his preference?

Most renovation work should be highly customizable. ^_^

Dont mind asking which contractor or ID ure liaising with? coz I'm looking for one as well. Im looking at 3 IDs at the moment but I believe IDs are pretty competitive in terms of prices maybe they're "branded" than contractors...hahha :yamseng:

One of the places is E-lite Reno. The other one from my close contact is someone who usually does big projects and not hdb.

At the end of it... We didnt take both contractors from our close contacts as we didnt want misunderstanding or probs (as things got blown out of proportions from his side!!) :( so we both ended up going to -. I will private you the company name of the big project one...
