ya tt's my headache now. my place has sers potential. so i dont want to spend so much $ reno. but still need to make it clean n nice enough to live in for the nx few yrs.
think my major spending wil b kitchen area. the rest of the hse is ok, juz need painting n polish the flr (parquet in bedrms n terrazo in living). i hv existing furniture which are only 2yrs old, so no need spend $.
my budget is 10k. i cant stand the kitchen wall tiles, wah super obiang, its really 30yr old kind, the seller is 2nd owner and they did some reno when they moved in 4 yrs back, however wall tiles untouched. i hv to do kitchen cabinet too. so i wan go for nice no need very good quality.
i hv a relative who is a carpenter. he did our current hse reno, he gave us direct price for false ceiling etc coz he subcon to others. but coz he is a relative and already help us save $ on non-carpentry stuff, we paiseh to bargain with him on carpentry. this time round, we will ask him to do as well...but i dont know mkt, and abit paiseh to bargain with him ... do u know the mkt rate for kitchen cabinet, m looking at laminate n post foam top. also bedroom buildin wardrobe, if i want just laminate, u know the mkt rate? thanks!
