We managed to get a few simple shots of our recently completed BTO before the Tenants move in. We did up the kitchen, washer plinth for the yard, wardrobes for the bedrooms and did up both common and master bathrooms with wet and dry shower areas. Vanity sink are from IKEA, got the contractor and plumber to install the sinks, taps and vanity drawers.

above: kitchen top cabinets in 2 different depths. Added feature and more storage area. 2 in 1!
above: existing horizontal white strip tile backsplash which I thought was a good choice from HDB!
above: simple bathrooms, sinks are from IKEA.
more house tours to come in the following weekends!
today i was on MC and hubs asked whether do I want to visit one of our BTO flats so I said ok. And because the boys are on school holidays, they wanted to come as well. So ok. We brought the whole village here to visit, talk to the contractor as well as the carpenter before we headed for lunch.
stay tuned for more photos to come!
ps: homeowner called to say that they couldn't find the gas pipe to hook up to the stove. We seriously thought we missed out a gas pipe and immediately called the contractor who nearly had a heart attack when he heard it. So we are all here to check it and verify for ourselves that the gas pipe is there....
Home to a young couple with 2 young kids. We managed to take some photos of downstairs and a little of upstairs on the bathrooms and master wardrobe as the kiddos were all playing in another room upstairs.
Above: more photos of the vinyl flooring with matching skirting. Lovely dining table set with a beautiful ornate white pendant lamp. Staircase threads are existing where we stained it a darker shade. New railings with timber handrails were installed. We redid the entire flat's electrical wirings.
above: here's a pretty shot of the dining room with the staircase. We changed the staircase storage area to face the long corridor instead of the common access from the small door. This way it's much easier to take things out from the triangular staircase store.
burlap tissue box holder from Minisou. Japanese print plate is from Daiso.
Living room: Sofa not bought yet! But we just had to take the photoshoot if not there wouldn't be another chance. It can be really difficult to juggle everyone's timing especially everyone has their own commitments on weekends and with little children around.
above: long ribbon windows looking into the study room and living room. A request from the missus to keep visual connectivity to all the adjacent spaces. For the window that faces the living room, we couldn't manage to have any upper cabinets there but most maisonettes have really huge kitchens so there's ample storage elsewhere.
above: common bathroom with dual sinks, a tall cabinet by the side for all the toilet stuff and even more storage provision under the sink. Mirror box is flat with no storage behind.
above: common bathroom on the lower floor with pretty wall tiles.
above: master wardrobe, swing door with door handle detail.
