(1) TV feature wall/cabinets: (S$4,025)
So, I pay around S$1,300 for cove lightings.
Item 5 & 6 are shared cost with other works, so it is about right to say it costs me S$1,500 to enlarge the master bedroom. Good deal.
All right, this is the area I can actually save few hundred dollars but I didn't. That is to paint the whole unit. I shall be able to engage Nippon paint directly to get the job done. Oh well, the coordination works had reached my maximum capacity. Too bad!
Do I hit the target? Not too bad.
S$9,229.55 + electrical wirings cost S$1,400 = S$10,629.55
Furnishing cost: S$17,716.33
I have spent a grand total of S$28,345.88, still well below my target of S$30,000. Buy more!
Create one at the new TV living hall is tougher , so, that's S$65.
In average, I pay S$65 for 2 power points. Cheap!
As for the windows blinds, we get the Unislat for living hall, Premium Combi (full blackout) for master bedroom and the rest of the bedrooms, Combi Aurora. All are Korea blinds.
Last but not least, just want to make myself happy to know the kitchen appliances supplied FREE by the developer are worth S$8,742 at the current market right now.
