~ RENOVATION IDEAS DRAFT 1~
|How our Master Bedroom Looks like|
|Bye Bye Storage Bench besides window idea ~~ T.T|
Then, do the platform storage at the dressing table area for me to sit down with side open shelves to store my hairdryer and skincare 🙂
|My Revised Idea|
Hence this solves the problem right?!
|My idea for accessories cabinet.. With glass top (not necessary have to be compartmentalised) to display my jewellery and accessories 🙂|
Chest of Drawers
|Nice Wooden Doors|
|Somewhat Similar to IKEA’s Pax Wardrobe System|
|Idea from IKEA 🙂 Love the pull out drawers.. Can use that to store scarves and misc items but I would like more area to hang my dresses and skirts.|
|Railings to hang Sweetie Muffin’s pants|
|Full-Length Mirror that can be conveniently tucked away in the wardrobe|
|My Dream Bathroom Design Idea (Flopped)|
|Bathroom Floor Plan|
1. Vanity Counter
2. Wasted Space
Just come to realise that there is wasted space on the right of the toilet bowl. We CANNOT shift the position of the toilet bowl to accommodate my vanity counter so that space at the right is WASTED.ARGH stupid toilet bowl – why are you located in the middle of nowhere?!
3. Wall behind toilet bowl
That wall can be hacked. (*Update: The wall CANNOT be hacked because it forms part of a pillar. The contractor found out about it after he hacked a corner of the wall and had to patch it back with cement.) But can we shift the toilet bowl backwards to make it more spacious? Doubt so.. ARGH!!
My Revised Idea
|Perception of Layout 1|
In order to solve this problem, perhaps we should do an open shelf above the toilet bowl instead like the picture below and maintain the wall behind the toile bowl to act as extra space for my countertop?Currently, this seems to be the best solution under Layout 1.
|Creating storage around the toilet bowl area…|
|Open Shelf on top of toilet bowl, Mirrored cabinet on top of sink|
Layout 2 (Shrink Shower Area)
|Smaller Shower Area|
|Does this layout create more room for my vanity counter if the shower area is hexagonal in shape?|
Layout 3 (Sink on the Right)
|Layout 3 (Sink on the Right)|
|We can even have a tall side cabinet if we have our sink placed on the side…|
|Narrow Countertop with Huge Basin|
|Earth Tones with Orangey Hues makes the bathroom looks more spacious|
|How our Kitchen looks like|
|My Proposed Layout|
We initially thought of just hacking that wall with the ‘window’ and perhaps replace the ugly cabinet doors to save cost.
|Will be hacking the Wall as it is an eyesore.|
However we were told that hacking the wall would affect the cabinets behind that wall and hence we might as well hack off and redo the ugly cabinets. *HOORAY!!!*
My ideal layout is something like below – the L shape is still maintained but I want to shift my basin to the island facing the dining area – so that I can wash dishes and watch TV at the same time.
|Ideal Kitchen Layout|
Then I want cabinets mounted near the laundry area to house my oven and microwave.
Sweetie’s Muffin intention of having the island is to have bar top to house additional guests..
My idea is to have a sink there so I can watch TV whilst doing dishes.
Hence the combination is to have a larger island like below…
|Design 1: Level Island with sink|
Pros of having the same level island is that it is shortie friendly. No offence because I am not very tall and I find it a challenge to climb up the elevated bar stools. It is children and old folks friendly as well. Moreover, you have additional surface area to prep your food!
|Design 2: Elevated Bar Top with sink below|
|Granite / Quartz Sink|
Also, I want to erect a pantry cabinet opposite the stove (i.e. the fridge area) for extra storage.
Colour Scheme for Kitchen

Would propose to have wood laminates on the cabinet doors with light coloured granite top with backsplash.

Nothing much has changed since my last update at http://www.aldoramuses.com/2014/08/hdb-resale-flat-idea-part-2-interior.html besides having my proposal for Eubiq tracks rejected by Sweetie Muffin earlier due to budget constraints *MEH*
We want to erect a false wall to function as TV console at one side and shoe cabinet on the other.
|Just a simple TV console on the fake wall will do as I want a swivel TV bracket|
|Entry Way Shoe Cabinet with space for displaying stuff…|
Oh we will be replacing our door to something which looks aesthetically better and functional and do away with the iron gates. Have always wanted to go keyless anyway ~ That will free our bags of the extra weight of metal *LOL*

We will be considering to knock down the cornice at the living and dining area and replace it with something more simple instead. Also, adjustments need to be made to my ‘fake’ wall as it might appear too thick if I want to incorporate the entry way shoe cabinets – food for thought.
Will be updating my blog on my House to Home transformation progress when I have time to do so.

Hence do not be too discouraged when you face with disappointments and unexpected things because you might still benefit from them instead.
Until Next Time 🙂
