Our renovation journey began back in January 2020, I was introduced to the interior designer Hosen by a close friend, the way my friend described Hosen was hilarious, Quote “Don’t see Hosen fat, fat whole body tattoo, he is a very hard-working and trust-worthy fellow.” I couldn’t stop giggling at the way my friend’s described, jokes aside, Hosen has a vast knowledge of everything you would ever need in a home, he would patiently listen to our requirements and suggest the best way to implement the construction. I can vouch that he is an expert on space planning; his ideas are always well thought through, probably because he has a large family and understands the wears and tears due to the large volume of traffic at home, he trumps functionality and perfects the aesthetics of a home.
Modern Scandinavian apartment – I love the Scandinavian style homes while dear preferred a more modern and edgy look so we compromised and settled for a mix of both designs. We love the colours grey and blue. We wanted a tranquil and minimalist space. At first, I was worried about the grey shades. There is a fine line between looking chic and turning out too gloomy, I am glad Hosen is an expert in colour coordination, all the colours blended well with each other contributing to a seamless flow between the living room, study, kitchen and bedrooms.
What to expect when you renovate your BTO apartment – We met up with Hosen about 3 to 4 times to discuss what we expected for our new home, we went through a couple of drafts of drawings on our HDB floor plan and he gave us his input on what would be the best layout for our home. Dear was right 3D drawings were very important; it was a good way to visualise how the outcome of the renovations would turn out and if the ID understood our requirements. After signing the contract with Swiss Interior, there were a series of meet-ups to discuss as well as to choose the items we would require, namely floor tiles, lighting and bathroom essentials. Hosen also did a rough default check for us and found nothing out of order. We realised that our common toilet was unable to flush thankfully HDB resolved that for us.
Stay tuned for part 3…
