Quite a few IDs these days don't charge extra (officially) for design, so they usually limit the drawings to 2-3 3D perspectives. But since you paid extra for their design service, it's expected that they give you all the drawings you want. Really helps in visualizing though!

@spooky I see, my ID's firm has 2 different packages, some customers only engage the design service, while some sign on the full service (design package plus renovation). Yup, I the 3D drawings really help in visualising, hopefully the reno outcome will look even better irl.

ohh, u paid extra for the design package!! Mine only gave me 3D when there's carpentry work involve 

@izong Yup, I paid for the design package, only 3D drawings given. If I need the measurements for carpentry to pass it on to my contractors, I will have to pay for the measurements.

3D drawings: Version 2

Hi everyone! It's been 2 weeks' since the first draft of my 3D drawings. I have gotten the amended drawings. Frankly speaking, I'm quite disappointed, sighhh.. more revisions to go.. 

 

LIVING ROOM

IMG-20170812-WA0019.jpg.5d5bc7c6684825712aca0e449911e03e.jpg

This drawing shows the original tiles used in Version 1, more yellowish tone against a white brick wall. Due to fengshui reasons, my living and dining room has to be painted with 70% beige tone, and the colour I have chosen is Lily white (closest to pure white). In this 3D drawing, it is painted lily white. I think lily white set against a white brick wall seems ok, if I were to paint the brick wall to lily white as well, does it look weird?? 

 

 

IMG-20170812-WA0018.jpg.78b8e2d02216f63278476d99093e67f9.jpg

I also got the ID to change the tiles to a more orangey tiles which I have shortlisted initially, set against a beige/brownish craftstone brick wall (commonly seen in many BTO flats in the following photo)

Built-in cabinet is too small, only 1.2m. I'm need at least 1.8m.. So I will be doing away with the standing lamp, and get a smaller furniture (approx 1.6m). I also find the design of the cabinet too mainstream.. sighh.. DB box will be changed to a full length mirror? ID also suggested some honeycomb tiles at the entrance, it looks a bit off to me. My door has to be painted grey due to fengshui reasons..

ID suggested barnyard doors for the 2 bedrooms, l like the doors but I think I will change the colours of the walls to white.

 

KITCHEN

IMG-20170812-WA0016.jpg.8b065f84c3b81d2d28fe5fe9b87cec99.jpg

Decided to change the backsplash to kompacplus as well using New York teak. I will be getting a LG fridge in champagne gold.. 

 

 

IMG-20170812-WA0017.jpg.c1e92a04eaa7d671e0a35b37ae593b9d.jpg

I found a couple of wall-hanging racks for the ID, this is what she proposed. I think someone else drew this but the third rack is too high up I feel??

 

 

IMG-20170812-WA0022.jpg.9d5435bf2e7e03b5f712209da61d83ac.jpg

Service yard. ID said I can't do a cabinet here due to the pulley system.  I wanted a kerb for washing feet but it doesn't seem to be reflected in this 3D drawing. sigh. 

 

COMMON BEDROOM

IMG-20170812-WA0024.jpg.ff2de111e8656dc675a3ed35443743ae.jpg

The previous drawings was of a different orientation, due to fengshui reasons. I had to forgo fengshui for this room as the gap between the headboard and wardrobe is too tight, it is almost impossible to retrieve clothes from the wardrobe, so I got my ID to change to this. However study table should be full length with 3 tiers drawer.. ID got it wrong sigh... 

 

MASTER BEDROOM

IMG-20170812-WA0025.jpg.394203c46bf0da5a7386d0e55d8b581f.jpg

The pink wall looks better now, I choose the lightest pink. Yes, it's due to fengshui reasons again and according to FSM, this room theme is pink. 

 

 

IMG-20170812-WA0026.jpg.8fa78a0b89eaccabc60c5a9c5aa6b14f.jpg

Pardon the disney fingurines.. Got my ID to redo the cabinets. 1/3 will be the wardrobe (60cm in depth), 2/3 will be my display, the right hand side will be hiding my TV. 

 

COMMON ROOM TOILET

IMG-20170812-WA0027.jpg.6b0f2b4b66b59e197cd5cd2cdec58fbf.jpg

Not much change, except I requested a laminate with more obvious grains

 

 

MASTER BEDROOM TOILET

IMG-20170812-WA0028.jpg.bb2505e657be54dbbf45cbeaedd67df1.jpg

Requested a full mirror cabinet, instead of a 1/3 rack, 2/3 mirror cabinet. Not sure about the rack above the toilet bowl, perhaps I should do away with it?

with regards to the study table at common bedroom, you intend to sit on the bed and do your work? whats the depth of your table, you may not b able to put those high-back chair. u have probably only about 40cm allowance. 

hmm 40k pretty high on one side, maybe can fine tune a little bit, small suggestion, check with your ID, ask him can remove the partition wall at side and install laminted frame to blend together with your cabinet and dismantle DB box door to laminate or mirror. also add in shelvings inside so can maximise usage and visual

@superk888 Thanks for the suggestions! Yup, will be removing the DB box panels and replacing them with a full length mirror. ID said can only do shelvings on the bottom section as top section contains the DB box. 

Btw, I don't get the other comment about removing the partition wall at side? Which is the partition wall you are referring to? 

My ID said both my MBR and common bedroom space is very tight, both bedrooms can only allow user to sit on bed, the gap is too small to put in a chair., even if we can squeeze in a chair. it will be very hard to adjust ourselves on the chair. 

For the common bedroom, the length of the room is about 3m, the depth of the sliding wardrobe is about 60cm, length of the super single bed is 120cm, we intend to keep the table depth to about 40cm (slightly larger than a piece of A4), I'm only left about 80cm gap. This 80cm gap has to be distributed for 1) gap between chair and bed 2) gap between bed and wardrobe. Approx 40cm for each gap? 

For the MBR, the length of the room is about 3m, the length of the super single bed is about 2m, depth of table is about 50cm (there is an indentation at the corner window wall, so this small section depth has to be deeper to cater to my display cabinet, so I'm only left about 40-45cm gap for the chair to slot in. 

3 room BTO is so small... :bangwall:

I would keep the racks above toilet bowl and plant some plants on it. Will not only beautify the toilet but also act as a natural air filter cum purifier.

The design is really nice, Hope to see the finishing and will want to wait for your photo uploads as well !

@AndreaLee Thanks! Hope the finishing will look good, the house is too small to have much design, guess a lot will depend on the styling.
