Strictly Scandinavian (3 Room 65Sqm BTO)

Recommended Posts

3D drawings: Version 3

Hi everyone, it's been sometime since my last update. Been feeling frustrated lately as I have some conflicts with my family members and relatives about the designs etc. Not going to dwell into details but because of this, I'm feeling quite down lately. 

Here are the third revisions..

IMG-20170910-WA0000.jpg.0956937334cd0e4494a6faf6608f9bff.jpg

Hexagon designs for the cabinet, yay or nay? I find that some storage space is wasted due to the hexagon design? 

 

 

IMG-20170910-WA0001.jpg.c0b381a8220a959783a94f19a2647780.jpg

Swopped out my craftstone wall with this plain looking tiles.. Cos family members and relatives said craftstone walls are too hard to maintain.. Changed my TV to a 55 inches one, is it too big?

 

 

IMG-20170910-WA0002.jpg.ecc0ee4eda6fe59fbfd1d0cdc1a46c3c.jpg

Have to change out my kompac plus tabletop to the quartz, cos family members and relatives said kompac plus is not good.

 

IMG-20170910-WA0003.jpg.865bcd33466e5631de1ca1d519125a86.jpg

Same goes for this side of the kitchen, swopped out my kompacplus. Added a fan in case of warm weather.

Split my wardrobes and display cabinet into a 50:50 proportion. 

 

 

IMG-20170910-WA0007.jpg.8b3e9432a38652c211e522ce8c0936d9.jpg

Supposed to change the tabletop to white but somehow information was communicated wrongly to the ID

This looks so much better now with the full length table, chair by the side

Personal opinion is that quartz is much hardier and easier to maintain. If you eat Hai Di Lao u will notice that their tables are all quartz....when they are clearing the table, one wipe and all the stains are gone and the table looks like new again.

For the hexagon it add a different outlook to it and make it not so "dead", however like you said it will be a little wasteful but if you are gg to display stuff i think it looks good :good:

A friend of mine spill some of the red wine on his house quartz and did not notice few hrs later and it kind of leave a bit of mark there. Please try to clean it whenever you see something (Esp those color liquid stuff) 

For the TV size, you go go online and check some website that recommend the distance and the TV size

I love the hexagon cabinets too, a very unique touch. Some space will def be wasted, but make the hexagons not too big and I think it's a good tradeoff!

It's not my place to say this but... if you're paying for the flat and the reno, you really should do what you like. That's just my opinion... I know everyone has different circumstances. Kompacplus has been used by many of my friends and they don't have any complaints at all. I'm using quartz and I feel like it does stain a little. But can be wiped off with CIF and a cloth (so far).

I think 55 inch is good enough for 3 room flat. I'm living in 3 room too.

some personal opinion:

1. hexagon-shaped cabinet nice but finishing wont be nice. must remember its manual work by carpenter. you will see many joints.

2. what u think of the 2 hexagons on extreme left n right to make it flush with the cabinet.  maybe look nicer and not a odd shape protrude plus safety issues. 

3. need to check with your ID the intended height for the hexagon. cuz sofa is there. if too low, whoever sits near may bump onto it. like wise  whoever enters the house never see may bump onto the edge

hope your reno begins well and is going on smoothly : )

Agreed with Spooky. It's my place and i decide on everything so it's a bit of balancing between advice and what you like

Hi everyone, thanks for the replies and suggestions. Been away for this thread for some time due to work. Yea I agree it's a bit of balancing between advice and what I like, I'm feeling rather down lately due to work, and because of the ongoing renovation discussions, I was in a pretty bad mood, there were also some arguments along the way, sigh. 

Anw, my renovations have started, will be updating this space more often. Stay tune! :)

Wet works proceeded after air con installation. Met up with my contractor over the weekend for a discussion.

Tiling works begin today. We got our living room and bedroom floor tiles from Lian Seng Hin

Each tile is offset by 200mm, arranged in a staircase fashion.

Hi flowersinherhair ,

 

Sorry for the second question , they lay the tiles straight to the raw flooring ? 

 

Thanks

But the photo shown cement , Boot and other material ... 

if you see closely, there's cement below in the circle area. that tool at the top is the tool they use for "scrapping" the lines on the cement before laying the tiles
