Wardrobe Planning

My ID was really fast, after sending him my wardrobe planning yesterday, he drew out a rough sketch by hand and showed me this morning to confirm his understanding. I revised it again per his suggestion about my pull out mirror.

This is what I referred to when planning (shared by another RT blogger) + I referred to IKEA wardrobes as well.

This is what I came up with in the end:

Door 1 - Common items like towels / bedsheets etc

Door 2 - For my less common worn shoes / make up / skin care items (Pull out mirror there as my standing dresser)

Door 3 to 6 - For my clothes / bags / belts / accessories etc

Door 7 to 8 - For hubby's clothes

hello, have you bought your fanco fan? did you settle for a 56" one? my ID said 56" is just nice, but i'm a little worried that it'll look too big!

i read through your lighting list! i have 14 downlights in my living room, can share how many watts you buying? i checked with my electrician but he said its really personal preference :/

Hi Rubypumps,

I am going to look at the fan tomorrow.

Just finished our lighting points etc today and our ID confirmed our L Box to be 22" to accommodate our TV feature wall. He says that 5 room BTO is huge enough for 56" fan. So I'm likely getting a 54" one as I think the Fanco Aroma only comes in that size.

Am also lucky that my house is pretty windy. So hopefully the ceiling fan can generate enough wind and we don't need to on air con that frequently!

For the lights, if its not LED, my ID suggested minimum 18W for those energy saving lights. I'm thinking of getting LED and 12W for each downlight. But it's really personal preference. All my LED will be white light and there won't be any ambience lighting in my living room (except from the ceiling fan which can switch between warm / cool / white).

Not sure if my sharing helped =x All the best for your reno! :)

Things are falling into place really nicely.

Will be having my key collection + auspicious door opening ceremony + house feng shui audit + bazi reading + meeting with ID to do measurements all on the same day.

*super happy!*

Did not head out today as wasn't feeling too well, and baby niece was home for the first day! had a mini celebration for her homecoming :wub:

Completed my wardrobe configuration today though! Have 8 doors (approx 13ft).

Hubby only requested for 2 doors, 1 will be used for "storage" for common stuff like bed sheet etc. He doesn't understand why he need more than 2, and I don't understand how he can do with just 2. But anyway, I get the remaining 5 doors :dancingqueen:

Hmm. Photobucket isn't loading. Shall share my planning tomorrow. Pretty simple layout actually.

Tomorrow got to meet ID at 9.30am to go through my electrical plans and air con trunking! Thankful that he managed to gather them together with such last minute notice since it shld usually be tough to coordinate everyone.

After that will discuss my wardrobe + settee colour + ABS trimmings i think. and maybe visit a few neighbours flats who engaged him :rolleyes:

Then we will have to go buy our toilet stuff + LED lights liao! Cannot drag anymore! But not sure they open or not tomorrow....

Oh and my FSM came back with a suitable auspicious start reno date! It will be this Sat! *YAYS!*

Train of thought is jumping everywhere as there is simply too many things going on at one go. fast and furious gogogo!

Good day Sis,

I am looking for ID for my resale unit at Jurong West too.

Follow through your thread, your ID seems doing a good job with reasonable cost.

Can I request the ID contact? Many thanks in advance :)

More Updates

Today was another long day running outside.

Started discussion with ID at 10am on paint colour / laminates choice / revision to drawing according to FS etc and ended the conversation 4.5hrs later.

I thought I was very efficient and fast liao leh. Go through the entire house carpentry + all choices! But hubby still say I too lor sor :~

As of today, we are left with deciding on ABS trimmings + colour of our settee cushion + wardrobe configuration.

Apart from that, meeting on-site on Friday to run through and confirm on additional electrical points + air con trunking.

After that went to buy new broom and dustpans (advised by FSM) and headed over to our house to clean up the fruits offerings, rice, beans, tea leaves etc. Imagine our surprise when we see a worker inside working on our defects! *thumbs up - very efficient* He was still working on it when we left 1/2 hour later. Hope it was a job well done :lol:

Headed down to Mega Discount Store after that to look for our wine chiller. But found no suitable ones. Later after considering most are made in china + easy to spoil + we can chill the wine in the fridge or use a ice bucket, we dropped the idea. Save the money.

Shopped at Song Cho at Kallang Leisure Park since it was near to Mega Discount Store after that. Bought the following for $800+ (*cries v ex!*). All grade 304 stainless steel and life time warranty. Since toilet is high water usage area, thought it is best to spend on good quality SS items.

2 x toilet roll holder

2 x bidget

2 x corner rack

2 x towel holder with top rack (1 single and 1 double towel holder)

1 x glass platform for common toilet as it has no mirror storage

After Song Cho, headed down to Lightings.com.sg at Geylang to look for LED down lights by my ID recommendation. But didn't find anything we want. Phillips down lights are so ex!!! The ones that are cheap are energy saving lights only. Left without buying anything.

Went into Heritage (along the same stretch) to look at toilet sink, WC and kitchen sink. Looked around a bit and left as thought of buying from Royal Fanco instead since it has better and lots of good reviews online.

Drove over to Jalan Besar to visit Royal Fanco. Small shop with friendly uncle there. Though not much items on display, the combo set for toilet sink and WC + kitchen sink are about same price as Heritage (or i think was slightly more ex).

Left without buying also.. as was contemplating whether to spend money to buy new sink and WC when HDB already provided. But I really don't like what HDB have :( Thought about it for quite a bit, and decided, rather spend the money and be happy whenever I enter my master bedroom toilet, den question why didn't I change daily for the next 5 years. So.. DECIDED TO BUY! Prob head down tomorrow.

Royal Fanco was our last stop for the day. Was already really tired by then. Made lots of decisions in a single day and it is really really draining.

I think hubby & I may be overly ambitious. People take many weekends to research / finalise / buy reno-related stuff, we are trying to cramp them all into a week :jawdrop: Lucky I have been researching and scouting around RT for quite sometime and more or less know what we need and where to get the things from. Otherwise I cannot imagine how we can ever finish buying and discussing what we need for the reno. OMG.

Aside from heading to Royal Fanco tomorrow, will also be calling sforshor's contact tomorrow to arrange to look at the LED downlights. Cross fingers he's available and we are able to find what we like then.

In the meantime, I need to catch my beauty sleep! Another long day tomorrow!
