To what extend am I going to do to the 9dao? The first house we bought together as a Husband and Wife but the husband literally has not much say yet. .. not at the moment, probably not so soon or ever!!
It appeared that from simple make over turn out to be a major renovation with extension and more extension.
Eager to look a 3D sketch by the designer?
This is not quite close to what I had in mind. Have to show more designs I found from the magazines and internet so that the designer understand my language. Its best to show the picture than just talking you know and missing out on the design detail makes me wonder if he did ever listen to me or not
First of all, the staircase the last 2 steps on the ground floor is not how I wanted it and the handle is wood colour. Really?? Really? It looks old fa-a-s-h-i-o-n lah. The staircase handrail must be spray painted white and I’ll insist on that.
This is how I wanted the staircase to look like.
Meanwhile, I doesnt like glass table, rectangular table is fine but I have not decided to get round or rectangular table. I think probably get round table, more harmonious. The ceiling lights look ugly btw. no no no. The renovation has not even started and here I am started with the ramblings hahahha
Also I emailed to Unity Kitchen, highly recommended by Forum Lowyat for service and quality, therefore I sent them a sketch of my floor plan and describe what I want and here’s the 3D design they come up with. Pretty amazing! Still I must say I need them to come over to take measurement and talk to them when the house almost ready. Right now its good to know price and design so I can do a proper budget.
The island looks not quite right, and the small wash basin I’ll have another design later to show it to them how I want it.
I have not really decided yet, where to put the oven and will be also asking UK to design a wine shelf for me.
I like the concept like this, white with a mix of wood colour. What do you think?
And I love love love free standing kitchen shelf like Anna Olson’s kitchen. I wish I can have a wood top Island, however seems everybody asking me not to! Since I am not going to put the wash basin at the Island probably I should still consider woodtop?
Its either wood top or granite/ marble or quartz stone, that hubby and I have to agree on the natural stone when we visit the stone warehouse in near future, if we can find something that we fall in love with. Every piece of natural stone is different so can’t say much now.
That’s all for now and finally, we have decided to award the project this month to the contractor that never stop follow up on quotations and has been very patient with me as I call him quite often to ask many many questions. Best of all, his price is really reasonable to begin with and I manage to squeeze some discount out of him too. YeyTweet
