My Dark, Industrial-Style Apartment

Recommended Posts

After months and months of reading the various t-Blogs on Renotalk, I finally managed to get down to starting my own t-blog to document my renovation process and journey.

My apartment is a ground floor unit with a huge patio and the reason i bought it is (besides the location) is actually the big patio that I could make use of for hosting dinner parties since space is a luxury these days. Oh well, if given a choice obviously I wouldn't get a ground floor unit given it's potential privacy issues.

Below is the original layout of my apartment:

I got the keys to my apartment during mid-June and the renovation started on 5 Aug.. phew!

I actually spoke to a few Interior design firms before choosing my current firm as I feel that the designer is able to achieve the look i want.

My last experience with another ID firm wasn't good at all but that doesn't deter me from choosing to use an ID again. I'm just more cautious this time round , hoping that my ID is able to deliver what was promised! keeping my fingers xx

Many people actually asked me why am i doing such a major renovation when the apartment is actually pretty much done up. The reason is becos im really tired of shifting around for the past few years... i think my record is 4 times in the past 6-7 years.... really very tiring! Therefore, i wana make my apartment a place i could call HOME :P. Given the new property measures, it's impossible for me to sell my apartment for the next few years so i might as well do it up to my fancy and park myself there for the many years to come :lol:

Nice layout. A lot of potential. One of the things I really wanted was a separation of wet and dry part of bathroom but mine didn't allow for it. Look fwd to seeing more pics!

thank you! i kinda like the layout too but unfortunately im tearing down the walls at my kitchen/dining area to make way for an open kitchen concept.. and repositioning the door for bedroom 1 (original floor plan stated bedroom 2) to build a walk-in wardrobe there ;)

oh ya, was so glad to snap this piece of rug from Boconcept at 40% off!

hopefully, it's big enough to cover the hideous marble flooring (at the living area) that was provided by the developer of the condo :~

Need some ideas on pendent light ... sort of like a centrepiece over my kitchen island.

I have been scouting on the net and found a few that suits the industrial theme (although mine is not the raw industrial style). The colour theme used for my kitchen are mainly grey, wood grains & stainless steel.

The 3D rendering of how my kitchen should look like:

option 1:
