Our First Home...

Recommended Posts

Lets talk about my ID. He listens to our views and tries hard to accomodate. It is his first time doing my kind of modern classic look, well it is more classic than modern actually :rolleyes: And I have a thing about 'white' house. I love white and you will see there are lots of white stuff in my house. The tiles that I picked for my living room is white and some grey veins. White walls all around the house, some white furniture, the fridge, cupboards, bed... if only I can afford white oven and white microwave, that will be awesome!!! Roy seems to be more into modern look but he really tries to deliver the best to suit our taste. Pictures from magazines, google images, drawings really helps to convey what I have in mind. I'm kinda fussy when it comes to design but I love the result!!!:wub:

These are the things that we did to our house:

- top up the balcony (headache, delays sigh)

- knock down false wall near the door (headache and delays...)

- knock down the wall between dining and kitchen (again delay)

- put up a wall between the living room and the path way into the rooms

- change all the lightsand switches

- level up the kitchen (previous owner top up 1/3 of the kitchen to make a dry kitchen so to get a bigger kitchen we hack the floor off)

- built-in wardrobe

- kitchen cabinets

- an island (I love island in the kitchen!)

- do up the toilets

- false ceiling in the kitchen to enhance the look

- tv console and feature wall

- to get the classic look, I want trimmings on the wall :notti:

- take out all the wooden beams, tiny brick like tiles on the dining area and the balcony

- change the gate, windows, put up the shower screen and toilet doors (these items are done beautifully by Andy from Home Aluminium) A job well done!

Ya basically that.

Hi! So far how has your bosch items been doing for you, especially the oven? I read from the forum a lot of complains on their after sales service. Any opinions from you? Cos im intending to get the same oven as yours. Does it bake and grill well, any complains? :)
