Wow ...... 7mm is thick and solid. I am still deciding between vinyl and porcelain tiles. Kind of headache, Porcelain is also about $7 per sq ft.

$7 per sq ft including labour?

Guess u'll have to read up the pros and cons to decide which flooring is suitable for your needs and theme.

Hi Ankle - I would think carefully about extending the wardrobe to below the aircon trunk vent. The water from a leak or condensation in the trunking could drip down and ruin your wardrobe.

I've checked with my ID. The trunking above my wardrobe are the electrical wiring. There's another trunking for the piping inside the bathroom. So no issue here. :)

The shower panel looks awesome. What are those knots, I am guessing you are installing a heat water tank for this?

Space maximization and Wall thickness is always my priority. A sound proof room gives you a wonderful feel.

Do not try to squeeze things in a smaller place. It may be worse if you're not smart to do so.

The knobs are the body spray. Had wanted this when i went japan a couple of years back and the hotel i've stayed had shower panel system. But mine is a cheapo version... :D

My latest woes is my ID told me may not be able to install storage heater above the cold/hot outlet vault coz he's afraid there might be piping. Which i thot it's abit ridiculous because hdb had designated that space for storage heater or else they wouldn't had placed the vault at that location right? Just wondering anyone had similar issue? Btw, my water heater is standard 15L square tank.

I just wonder with such a small space in the bathroom, do you really need a 15L heater tank? The standard instant water heating system works fine for me in my bathroom now. Sometimes, on hot day, I even shower with cold water.

hi,

Happy Chinese New Year! I am getting my 2 room next month @ buangkok. Its a 47 sqm. I have been reading this forum for the past couple of months. For the past 2-3 yrs, I didnt plan for anything, didnt look around for ideas because I know I will get super excited. Its only since 2-3 months, then I start to look around for ideas, went to Ikea, Courts to see what kind of furnishing I am interested. 

I haven not approached any ID, i am asking my friend (a contractor) to do the reno for me, I trust him to get the job done. Looking through all your contributions in the forum for the past 80 pages, I am impressed by all of you. I went to HDB gallery in Nov 2017 and saw the 47sqm 2 room layout, they used Ikea as designer and everything is ikea (before they change the layout in Dec17). I liked the layout and felt that I wanted to do a copy & paste. I went to Ikea online and did a computation and found that it would probably cost about 2.4K to furnish the living room & another 2K to furnish the bedroom.

My friend told me Ikea stuff is not durable, but I dun really agree on that because for their sofa, they give a 10yr warranty. I cannot find another furniture shop that give warranty more than 1-3 yrs. I loaded the HDB gallery fotos for all to see.

Please give me your views, what do you think if I do a copy & paste (living room & bedroom)? My layout is same as the HDB one. My flooring will be by HDB, dun intend to change it.

Hi! Am new here!

My hse will be ready in maybe 1 ++yrs but I am planning to convert part of my living room into another small bedroom.

Possible? Will be living with my son, son will grow up and I want him to have his own room in future. wall to be transparent so that there will be lights passing through the living room.    

Any advise? :D

Hi Ms Tan,

You can refer to ikea small space youtube for ideas. There are a lot of youtube and you can draw ideas for how to have a small room for your son.

Compare to the rest, I think my kitchen look longer.

But now my headache is the toilet.

I read thur all the pages and cannot seems to find a best solution of it.

Hi guys and gals, 

Happy New Year to all,

Due to the design of the toilet and the 2 doors, I was thinking of installing shower curtains in the shower area,

at least in certain way will separate the wet and dry in the toilet.

What u all think?
