Just to share, I engaged several different people to renovate my place over a 2 week period. My reno was done 1.5 yrs ago. This is what I did for my 5-I flat (which is 10 yrs old):

1. Overlay toilet tiles
2. Install hot water tank and run hot water pipes to both bathrooms. Also change the taps and showers in both bathrooms, plus change toilet bowls and sinks in both bathrooms.
3. Install medium sized bath-tub in both bathroom
4. Repaint whole house (including filling up gaps in walls - this is pre-fabricated HDB walls)
5. Install split unit air-con in 3 bedrooms and living room. i.e. two compressor units
6. Built in wardrobes for all bedrooms
7. Ceiling to floor louvered door cupboard for shoes in the living room
8. Install new lights for living room
9. Change all the switches and electrical socket points in the house (30 over pieces, can die...)
10. Install aluminium grilles for whole house

Everything done for $20k. Do PM me if you are interested on any particular areas.

The tricky bit is co-ordinating the installation of the air-con and the installation of the built-in wardrobe because depending on how your rooms are designed and where you want to install the air con, the built in wardrobe has to conceal the piping for the air-con. And you need to know where the air-con guys are going to run the piping before you tell the carpenters how much space is required for running the pipes.

Have attached some photos to share the before and after.
