Hi, bought a 5rm resale hdb this year

This is the original floor plan

But when I bought it, the store room was already removed

Started sourcing for IDs and contractors and met up with almost 10 of them

 

While comparing the quotes and thinking whether can they can "click" with me and understand my ideas

I am also looking for those reliable companies that won't run away with my money since there are few cases this year

After almost 2 months before got the key, finally decided on this guy, Benjamin from D*****4****E

He is not those whom you signed the contract with, that will go strictly with it

I have made a lot of changes and he's very understanding and since things which are not yet done, he allowed to make changes

 

I told him I wanted an area for guests without disturbing my family and he proposed a few ideas

Since my kitchen is quite big, so he suggested these

After thinking over the pros and cons, finally decided on the last one

 

Stay tuned for the reno progress...

Very nice squarish layout with four big bedrooms. What is the floor area? Where is it located? I notice there is no bomb shelter, air con ledge nor a refuse chute inside your flat, which I think is good not to have them in your flat. I guess it is about 20 years old.

I think it is good to have either a store room or a service yard for your flat.

24 years old

Actually, for now is ok not to have a storeroom as don't have a habit to keep many things

Regarding the service yard, if have is good

Looking at your floor plan, you can consider putting back the old store by moving the new wall out by 1000mm to create a walk in closet with two rows of racks for storage. Plenty of storage space is important even though you may not have many things at the moment.

So you suggest restoring back to the original layout?

 

Actually was deciding whether want to remove the storeroom if found such a layout

Since it was removed actually no need to think already ;)

For the storage space, thought of it

 

1. The sideboard in the living room in front of the master bedroom

2. The empty space looking from the kitchen entrance diagonally oppspite

3. Inside the kitchen cabinets

4. Will have a cupboard at the original storeroom area

:)

Yes, restoring the store room but move the wall out by another 1000mm with door opening in the middle. In your newly created storeroom, you can have two rows of storage shelves on the left and right (like a walk in wardrobe). You can consider a simple feature wall with hidden door like the pictures below.

Good luck to your renovation 

Great squarish layout

Look like the whole house will be hacked and redo.

Will suggest you do long carpentry along the wall to store things as there are no storeroom available.

For now, won't be doing any carpentry except kitchen cabinets and built-in wardrobes

The carpentry is a killer (money wise)

Prefer those standalone cupboards
