As much as I would like to say that my house is perfect in a certain sense it isn’t. Sure it is Instagram worthy but there are some errors that I would really love to have avoided if I were the wiser. So here I am sharing the boo-boos so you won’t make the same mistake as we did.
Not enough electrical points in the living room- We have an issue in the living room where we do not have enough electrical power points if we would like to install an appliance or would like to display a power generated display such as a lamp or fountain, we would not have enough places to hook it up to.
Having a fixed TV Feature Wall – Our featured wall was made for a 55-inch television, it was built too close to the window. we never thought that we might want a bigger screen in the future, so we kind of regret having the carpentry fixed in such a manner but on the positive side we do really like all the extra storage the overhead cabinets provide.
Not allocating enough room to install the curtain rod and insect mesh – The Curtain pelmet was built too close to the window making it difficult to install our curtains after the insect mesh was installed. Thankfully the curtain installation company had 2 staff who were experts in installing the rods and hooking up the curtains after quite a wrestling with the installation works.
Not testing out the lights in the light showroom – We didn’t test out the dining room chandeliers, yes the yellow lighting does look awesome in photographer and videos but we found it a tad bit blinding. Thankfully we can change the bulbs once they blow out when new ones would be required.
As this is our first home I guess it is only natural to overlook certain matters, we did try our very best to avoid as many renovation mistakes as possible. Renovation mistakes are costly and like a colleague, of mine said can be a thorn at your side every time you lay eyes at the mistake. However, If you don’t face issues and obstacles in life you won’t have the much-needed experience and knowledge to grow.
