Sorry for being M.I.A again :) We've been super busy with work and at long last, renovating & fitting out our house (+ a small holiday in France 3 weeks ago).
After months of searching, reviewing & negotiating prices, we finally signed off on our interior design plan and started work in our house.
It's still very early stage as you can see from the pictures below. We have divided work into 3 phases. In phase I, we will only focus on hacking, structural changes and a few main rooms (Master bed and bathroom, study room and kitchen).
The theme of our house will be Balinese, so we are also off to Bali soon to source furniture such as dining table, bath tub and more.
We also spent a lot of time in the past 2 weekends sourcing for tap fittings, basins, cooktop and range hood.
Here is a few shops which we found interesting (and bought items from):
Sim Siang Choon Hardware (S) Pte Ltd
Address: SIM SIANG CHOON BUILDING, 21 Changi South Avenue 2, Singapore 486630
We have visited above 20 bathroom products shops both in Johor and Singapore. I found this shop through internet. It is almost like an IKEA for bathroom and kitchen products. This place carries the largest low-mid range bathroom and kitchen products. Some items were surprisingly cheap as compared to the Hansgrohe range (though similar material and similar looking).
SaniQuo Pte Ltd
568 Sims Avenue Singapore 387598
We bought some Hansgrohe taps and bath mixer from this shop. All except the bath mixer has been delivered. I'm a bit disappointed with this shop as we were told that there is stock for the item we wanted and it would be delivered on Monday, but now we have to wait for another week as the item's actually out of stock.
Best Light Electrical Sdn Bhd
No: 15-17 Jalan Ros Merah 2/10, Taman Johor Jaya, 81100 Johor Bahru, Johor.
We also visited lots of shops when we were looking for cooktop and range hood (from Harvey Norman, Best Denki & more in Singapore to lots of local shops). We narrowed our selection on the Electrolux Ultra Clean Hood and Gas Hob with 3 Burners. Best Light shop had the best price offer, so that's where we bought these items from.
Brilliant Supplies Sdn Bhd
No 6, Jalan Indah 1, Taman Bukit Indah, 79100 Bandar Nusajaya Johor
This place had the best price offer for stone sinks which we were looking for our bathroom.
There's still a longgggg way to go before Phase I renovation is complete, but I cannot wait to get things done and to be able to move into our own house. I will continue posting updates and learnings from this renovation, so please stay tuned.
Have a great Sunday!
