Love love your home! :wub: And all the decor touches like the little buckets of flowers, fairy lights and how the woody items/laminates match perfectly. I can only hope that my house turns out half as cozy as yours! 

All the best for your wedding prep! What are the things you're diy-ing for your big day?

Decisions making time!

Ever since I had started our renovations, I felt that there are so many things that needed decisions! I felt that I had never made so much decisions before and what makes it worse is I am a super indecisive person which sometimes drives hubby and J & E crazy lol! :rofl:

We had decided to drop the idea of overlaying common toilet due to budget constraints. Kitchen will be screeded and paint over hence I need to choose tiles for MBR toilet and kitchen backsplash. 

I spend the longest time deciding on these. I think I changed my mind like x times cannot decide if I want to have feature wall in the toilet or not etc went Hafary like 4 times before decided on the below. 

Tiles for backsplash

MBR toilet walls

And MBR toilet floor

Hey.. Im a noob on renovation, my key collection is drawing near and we would like to engage contractor instead of an ID. Jus for my curiosity if I were to engage contractor directly will they be providing sample for the tiles and flooring??

Hi! The contractor will not give you tiles sample but when your contractor brings you to the tile shop the shop will be giving you the samples. 

They are all very friendly! Even if I walked in without my contractors, they still entertained me and gave me a lot for samples.

We did not get the electrician to install the Elmark fans that we got from JB. The electrician shared that they had tried to install many JB Elmark's fan and it's always very wobbly due to the U hook for Malaysia kind of ceiling. Instead of paying them to do and in the end we get wobbly fans, he shared that one of the client actually got Elmark Singapore to install for her and bought the ceiling fan hook that is meant for Singapore kind of ceiling but he is not sure of the cost. 

I called up Elmark Singapore and got them to come down to install the 3 Elmark fans instead! It cost $50 per fan and $30 transport charges. Optional items are the hook that was mentioned previously. It cost $45 per hook. The Elmark technician said that it is ok that we do not buy the hook but he said it will be wobbly as well due to the U hook. 

We had seen friends who used the Malaysia's U hook and fhe Elmark fan was really very wobbly. Since it's for long term usage we decided to just purchase the local Elmark ceiling hooks. The fans are indeed not wobbly after the installation. Would not recommend getting the 3 tone LED light from Tampoi because though the fans does not wobble the light kit does! It is because that light kit was meant for ceilings and there's only 1 single hook support and the Elmark technician recommend us to change the light kit to something with more support so that it will be perfect. 

Well, next time maybe! Since we already bought it we will just use it till it spoils. There are too many other things to spend on during renovations. 

Hihi, do you have the Elmark electrician's contact by any chance? Thanks!
